As dragons continue to reappear in the world of Thedas in increased numbers, players will face a multitude of the mythical creatures within this fall’s Dragon Age: Inquisition. The upcoming title will feature a number of different dragon species that each has their own personality. Some will patrol the skies actively seeking victims while others will horde themselves inside their lairs. To kill the latter, gamer will have to venture deep into the dragons’ nests in order to vanquish the fabled beasts as revealed by a Gameranx report on Aug 4.

Battling dragons inside their enclosed lairs will obviously create a different experience from dragon fights that take place in an open area. Besides a lack of mobility that will keep gamers close to the dangerous opponent at all times, many of the dragons that keep to their lair will be older than those that freely roam the open world. As a result, these encounters can pit fans against much stronger foes.

Gamers won’t have to be concerned with unwittingly stumbling upon dragons nest should they not feel up to the challenge. Upon entering a lair, it should be fairly obvious that dragons are nearby by the visual presence of dragon eggs. Other clues can also warn players that deadly beast is ahead such as roars of the dragon itself echoing from deep in the lair. Should fans not wish to tangle with a dragon, they can retreat from the lair to come back at a later time.

Since the game will include a variety of different interior locations that the Inquisitor will uncover while exploring the map, players will have to look out for these warning signs if they don’t want to end up face to face with a dragon with a home turf advantage. Ignoring the clues could make searching that random cave that was believed to house bandits turn into a deadly mistake.
