    Hi again. I got 2 Diamond Shales from the Anvil event, should I combine them?

    Also, is there a way I can see which heroes drop from which pack?

      I wouldn't combine them, you have few heroes at the moment and they could be useful for your dwarves squad.
      It is good keep in your inventory several dupes, they can be useful, specially if they are rogues or defenders.
      I would try to get Amethyst Shale at nexus, it is the best Shale and it is worth it and Branka is pretty good too.
      You can check out heroes list, stats and gear at HoDA Codex, it is a very useful webpage and you can also check out there pack drops.

        One thing to keep in mind is that the game is constantly revamping older heroes. There can always be a possibility of that for Diamond Shale for example... so it is a good idea to hold 1 of every hero as a general rule until you know for sure you do not want to keep it.

        As for heroes and pack information there are 2 suggestions I have:

        1- http://forums.capitalgames.com/forum...on-at-a-glance and click the corresponding pack you are interested in (the red color words-- click it and it will open a link to a spreadsheet with the information) and this is official from CG...

        or the unofficial:
        2- go to hodacodex.com and use the right side filter "packs-nexus" you can see which heroes and gears are in each pack.. or even select the nexus to see what heroes and gears drop. It is fan run so sometimes it isn't always the most up to date.

        ... and then there's PALA (you know.. that lil warrior dwarf).

          I just wanted to post and say how awesome everyone has been. I've been learning a ton, and I'm proud to show how much I've grown since I returned to the game 4 days ago--

          Starting Stats
          Level: 30
          Legendary Heroes: Phoenix I *1; Brogan Dace I *1; Saarebas I *1; Ruby Shale I *1; Red Lyrium Bartrand I *2; Dragon Morrigan I *3; Josephine I *2; Sister Nightingale I *1

          Current Stats
          Level: 42
          Legendary Heroes: Phoenix I *1; Brogan Dace II *1; Saarebas I *1; Ruby Shale I *1 x2; Red Lyrium Bartrand III *2; Dragon Morrigan II *3; Josephine I *2; Sister Nightingale II *1; Diamond Shale I *1 x2
          Wisps: Mythic Giant Wisp I *1 x2; Legendary Giant Wisp I x3; Legendary White Red Wisp I

          (Still no Amethyst Shale from Anvil event. But I got duplicate Ruby and Diamond Shales. Bummer! )

          I am also pleased to inform you that I've started a nug collection. In fact, you may see my nugs in the PvP event.

          I'm sure I'm going to have more questions, but I just wanted to thank everyone for helping me grow 12 levels in 4 days!

          EDIT: I just got Crow Zevran from the Iron Pack I got from the PvP event!

            Sorry for the double post. I noticed something today that has me a bit confused.

            I received epic Anders. He's a red faction hero with groups of "Apostate" and "Mage."

            However, I thought that magic/mage based heroes were blue faction -- whether it be single faction or dual faction. I have Saarebas I who is red/blue and Grey Warden Bethany who is black/blue.

            Is there a reason Anders isn't at least half blue faction?

            EDIT: Also, Grey Warden Anders...?

              lol don't worry about it
              the factions are more of a guide than an actual hard rule.

              just roll with it and life gets better, especially in HODA-verse

              get yourself a bunch of runes by purchasing them with gold in the "item store"
              if possible, put those on and roll with your best squad in the highest difficulty you can do in the nexus.

              this allows you to shoot up tremendous levels in no time at all.
              Higher levels=more energy
              more energy=less having to check in and use it to ensure energy isn't wasted.

              or, use the gold and buy gold packs to get some really good toons from there!

                EDIT: Also, Grey Warden Anders...?

                I've noticed most Circle mages get the blue affiliation (also elves, since their heritage is steeped in magic, even if they are not necessarily mages, see Arlathan General and Sentinal Archer/Shadow). Red faction are usually apostates, Witches of the Wilds, Apostate Jowan and the like. As an aside most Qunari mages are red/blue, though it's not because they are apostates, but because they were never part of the Chantry at all, I think.

                With that said, legendary Vengeance Anders is black/blue. Black makes sense because he's possessed in addition to being a Warden. I suspect the blue faction tag has to do with his spirit tag and creating cohesion in a spirit squad. But he was always possessed, so I don't know why epic Anders wouldn't be red/blue, maybe because when we are first introduced to Anders in DA2 we don't yet know he's possessed.

                I hope my rambling makes some sense.

Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                Posting Suggestions
                In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
