Epic Battle DA2 SPOILZ by RamenWarrior Epic Battle DA2 SPOILZ by RamenWarrior

Arishok: Hawke! Stand and fight me!

Hawke: $*&@!!!

Pretty much how my duel with the Arishok went. :XD: I'd run around for about a minute, and hit him with a spell every so often.

This is why we have Varric for embellishment. :XD:

Holy cow! O_O I'm not used to getting so many comments. I'm sorry if I don't diligently respond to all of you like I usually do. Thank you, for all the faves and kind words! :love:

Duuuuuude I had a nightmare about this just last night no joke.  Except the Arishok was a woman.... but didn't look like one.... I was so relieved when I woke up >_>

Me and you both. XD I couldn't even get close to the arishok and re-act the trailer where hawke and arishok fight

how is it i was able to go blow for blow with him as a mage?
crazed-monkey Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014
Turns out that this duel is insanely easy when you play as an Archer/Shadow/Assassin.  Never even took a hit! I am a dummy! 
Audiomaniak Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014
So very true)

exactly what I actually did running around In fear.. and waiting for him to hit a wall.. STRIKE and hit him finally!
selvokaz Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013
I found myself running from him a lot except with my mage.
PPGmakesmesmile Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013  Student General Artist
exactly what I did.
JediKacee Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013
Oh dear. I did a playthrough with a creation mage. My Arishok battle closely resembled this! Too funny!
Yulka-Winged-Wolf Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013
Thatīs exactly how my battle looked too....except that i was a warrior and had no clue how to get near enough to hit him without being torn apart XD
Mymalin Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
I didn't really have that Problem with my mage. I pretty much had every single defensive spell that the games gives you and i took almost no damage xD
But on the other hand, i didnt do much damage either, so occasionally i had to run around too, to recharge.
Gamergal218 Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
bahahahaha this is amazing!! I love Hawke's facial expression! So true though. not an easy battle as a mage....
Andauril Featured By Owner May 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
So true... so very true... Exactly my strategy! :D That's exactly how it happened! xD

Hime-Koneko Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
completely...and utterly..embarassingly..true... lol thank god for the dog ^.^ the whole time i was cursing fenris to the void XD and i always wondered what would happen if the Arishok tripped when he charges... road rash.... srry im rambling lol.
cusa9 Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

More DA2 Art, PLEASE<3
HeartofSilverandGold Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
That's pretty much how my duels go....I charge in trying to do as much damage as I can then he runs me threw with that sword of his then lifts me off the ground. I feel better that I'm not the only one that has ran away from the stupid giant.
konome Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
Makes me feel better knowing lots of people did this... x] my entire party had died part way through the fight and I was waiting for my resurrection spell to cool down...
Pryllia Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011  Student Artist
That's what I did on my warrior, except it was run, smack him a few times, continue to run as I drink a stamina potion and repeat lol.
FereldensOwnHeroine Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011
I ran in figure eights with my mage... ran in figure eights with my warrior... then, when I thought all hope was lost, my rogue pwned :) Figure eights still, but mr arishok charged alot and got stuck in the wall :) I love this!
Althaly Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Don't worry, mine was similar, but no doggie with me! XD
I would just run, cast spell, run, cast spell, get hit, and cast healing spell XD
GuerillaChord Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011  Hobbyist
This is not only how the Qunari fight went for me, but every boss fight I ever had. But especially the Qunari one. After a while I just decided to go, "Y'KNOW WHAT FENRIS? NO. NO MORE DUELLING. YOU CAN HELP ME FIGHT HIM, GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE."
optical-jackson Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
When I went with my rogue, I was ok. My mage, nada. Just like this. I imagined Amberley running around yelling to the rest of the party "I think you should know this is the stupidest fight I have ever fouuuuuuught....~!"

Chaos-Guardian Featured By Owner May 31, 2011
I fought like this too, pausing every so often to freeze him in place and I imagine my Hawke running away would always yell "SCREW THIS!!"
RamenWarrior Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
LOL I think you have just voiced all of our opinions! xD
TrixbeeCassiGirl Featured By Owner May 29, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I still have yet to defeat him. Run around for about twenty minutes, every so often stopping to hit him once with daggers, get hit, take a potion... Repeat as necessary. T-T Impossible.
RamenWarrior Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It took me four tries to kill the guy, and a respec.
TrixbeeCassiGirl Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I've tried a total of ten times now..... *sob* I restarted. Turns out, it's much easier if you just befriend Isabella..... T-T
Russofana Featured By Owner May 22, 2011
It's coo-o-o-ol!!!
RamenWarrior Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
haha, thanks a bunch!
NovaBeam Featured By Owner May 21, 2011
LOL! As far as I can tell that’s how most peoples battle with the Arishok went.

I can only imagine the look on all my companions faces as I ran for my life like a coward and attacked when I could. Not a very impressive way duel to for Isabella, but effective.
RamenWarrior Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's what Varric is for! :la:
Sh-gall Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
LOL. Fantastic! That's how my rogue did it, too. Potions, tar bombs, assistance from Dog, dirty fighting, and uh, yeah, a ton of running around those pillars in Keep.

HAHA! YUP. Damn that battle was so hard! XD

Heehee, thanks so much! It's a gem, right?
nightsworer Featured By Owner May 14, 2011
This is how my fight went with Arishok as well when i faced him as a rogue, lol! XD I could only face him head on as a warrior.
