I played and beat the game from 2-3 years ago--however in an argument that I had with my older sister on the Xbox 360 (she claimed the system was hers) In a rage, I deleted that saved account. My goal is to redo the first and 2nd DA (on a new XBOX360). I usually play on the easiest mode, because I am a considerably inexperienced gamer. Due to school, I don't play a lot. This may help guage my video game skill level. I wanted to hear recommendations for the best beginner race/class with a recommended build for that class. I initially played a human/warrior with 2 wield sword. I focused primarily on DEX and a bit on STR (I had actually made the character looked like Mulan and the dog was Mushu). I would consider playing either a archer/rogue or mage, but I worry about the Circle of Magi quest. I find that one especially hard when being forced to fight by yourself. Or would your recommendations be to remain as a warrior with another type of build? What are your thoughts? Thank you

Two hand warrior is up close and personal, Mage or Archer is obviously fighting from range.

Range type chars will have a harder time when on their own (Although they work real well if you have a nice tank set up to work along side and generate lots of 'threat')

Mage also tends to end up with a lot of 'pausing' if you use AOE spells as you need to set their point of impact.

I've played through with Mage and Rogue duel
I found 'circle of magi' easier with the rogue due to being able to cope better up close. Honstly though, I really didn't like the Fade at all and I'm not looking forward to that part this time as I do another Mage playthrough.

Maybe you should try a Rogue duel? You get the up close style of your two hand but also some other interesting skills and the action will seem a lot faster as duel is faster hitting than two hand (damage per hit is less obviously)

i either go for a ranged archer or mage. I find those have the best DPS
