What are the best Dragon Age Inquisition mods?
Dragon Age Inquisition is a brilliant game, and it introduced players to some of the series’ best characters.
It also provides a ton of replayability thanks to the four unique races you can play as and all of the different choices you can make.
However, there is still room for improvement, and the modding community has created some truly spectacular additions to this game!
The 10 Best Dragon Age Inquisition Mods
The Nexus is filled with great mods for DA: Inquisition, but we’ve made it our goal to find the ones most worth downloading.
To create this list, we’ve selected mods based on their popularity, number of downloads, and the overall impact they have on gameplay.
So, before you start a new playthrough and enjoy reading our list of the 10 best Dragon Age Inquisition mods:
10. DAI Community Patch
Kicking off our list, we have the DAI Community Patch, which aims to fix a ton of bugs that were overlooked by Bioware.
Like the Unofficial Skyrim Patch, one of the best Skyrim mods, the Community Patch is a must-have for anyone playing DAI on the PC.
This mod implements a ton of big fixes that would otherwise cause players not to be able to finish specific quests, such as the mosaics.
For example, a couple of previously unobtainable mosaic pieces have been moved to new locations so that players can pick them up.
While DAI isn’t nearly as buggy as the best Bethesda games, this patch definitely fixes some pretty annoying bugs!
9. Trespasser Skyhold PJ Replacer and Schematics
One of our biggest complaints about DA: Inquisition is that your clothes at Skyhold look like pajamas.
Now, they’re probably really comfortable, but when your judging criminals and trying to look like a badass, they really don’t play the part.
While Bioware did end up adding some alternatives, they’re not exactly great, and honestly, we just want to be able to wear cool gear.
Thankfully, modder Atherisz felt the same way and created this mod that replaces the infamous Skyhold PJs with Trespasser DLC armors!
This mod adds a ton of armor choices, and their schematics can be purchased at any time from the blacksmith in either Haven or Skyhold.
We absolutely love being able to dress up our Inquisitors with this mod, and you can also put them on your companions as well!
8. No More Fog of War
In the vanilla game, when you first enter a new area, the map will be obscured by the fog of war and gradually become more visible as you explore.
However, this mod makes the maps in DAI much more like those found in some of the best open world PS5 games, with everything visible from the start.
This makes it a lot easier to find out where you need to go, and it makes sense in the lore as, of course, the Inquisition would have access to complete maps!
While it’s likely this mechanic will be brought back in Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, at least with this mod, we can enjoy a brief respite from it.
It is definitely nice to be able to see everything right from the get-go, especially if you’re replaying the game and want to make things a bit less frustrating!
7. More Banter
Dragon Age Inquisition has some of the best companion banter of any of the best video games of all time, and it really helps flesh out all of the characters.
In the vanilla game, companion banter may or may not activate anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes, which isn’t nearly enough for our liking.
Fortunately, this mod changes things so that banter will always activate every 15 minutes unless you are in a cutscene or loading screen.
We love this change because it doesn’t keep companions talking to the point that they become annoying but still allows them to converse more frequently.
Since installing this mod, we’ve heard a ton of banter that we’d missed out on before, and we’ve been playing since launch day!
If you really love getting to know more about your companions’ personalities, we highly recommend downloading this mod!
6. Multiple Romance Mod
Dragon Age Inquisition has some incredible romance options, and it can be difficult to try and limit yourself to just one love interest!
This is especially true since we made the mistake of romancing a certain bald elf during our first playthrough, only to end up with our hearts completely shattered!
However, with this mod, the Inquisitor can go all out and romance as many characters as they want with no repercussions!
What we really love about this mod is that it’s incredibly modular, so you can choose who you want to romance specifically.
Of course, there is also a file that covers everyone, so if you really want to play the field, you absolutely can!
So now, if you end up getting your heart broken by Solas, you can always have The Iron Bull to fall back on, along with basically everyone else!
Basically, with this mod, you will literally become the Captain Kirk of the Inquisition!
5. Increase Inventory Capacity
Nothing sucks more than getting deep into a quest only to try and loot a valuable corpse to find you have no inventory space!
While the vanilla game allows you to hold up to 90 items, provided you take 2 perks to increase the base limit of 60, this is still not enough.
Thankfully, this mod allows you to customize your character’s carry capacity so that now you can loot the entire map if you want without running out of space.
When downloaded, this mod sets the default carry amount to 400, but you can change it to anything between 60 and 32,767 if you want.
After all, Dragon Age is a fantasy series, not one of the best survival games of all time, so increasing carry capacity is hardly against the spirit of things!
We’re not going to lie, we’ve maxed it out so that we don’t have to worry about constantly running back to Skyhold to store things.
This allows you to seriously earn a ton of money, as you’ll have a ton of stuff to sell after exploring every map.
Oh, and it also pairs perfectly with our next mod, which will definitely have you picking up almost everything you see!
4. More Loot – Remade
If you’re unsatisfied with the amount of loot stored in containers around the map, then this mod is for you!
There are over 400 loot tables in DAI, and this mod affects just over 200 of them, so that you can improve the things you find.
While More Loot is completely configurable, there are 4 versions to choose from that come with different defaults.
This is so that you don’t have to manually tweak the values if you don’t want to and can instead just install what you want to start with.
If you don’t want to go too overboard, there is the minimal version, which slightly increases the gold and loot found on enemies and in containers.
Alternatively, there is the extreme version that makes it so that almost every container will have gold and more of it, along with a ton of crafting materials.
If gold isn’t what you’re after, there is also a crafting option that makes it much more likely that you’ll find schematics and crafting materials.
Although this mod doesn’t cover the beginning of the game, there is More Loot – Prologue that covers gameplay between Haven and the Temple of Sacred Ashes.
We definitely enjoy being able to gain more loot, and this mod works perfectly with Increase Inventory Capacity!
3. More Inquisition Levels
In the base game, you’re only able to increase your Inquisition rank up to 20, with 19 points to spend on any of the 34 unlockable perks.
Now, this is incredibly limiting, and while we understand why the mechanic was included, we still want to be able to unlock all of the perks on the list!
Thankfully, we weren’t alone in wanting this, and mod creator Ghostifish made this mod to set things straight.
With More Inquisition Levels installed, you will be able to increase your Inquisition rank up to 30 and gain 2 perk points for each level between 24 to 30.
This allows you to be able to unlock all of the available perks, though this isn’t necessarily a cheat, because hitting rank 30 is really hard!
Gaining Inquisition levels requires a ton of influence, and to hit level 30, you will need to earn double what it took you to hit 20.
However, because Inquisition is one of the best fantasy RPG games of all time, there are plenty of things to do to gain more than enough influence.
2. Enhanced Character Creation
Dragon Age Inquisition is a beautiful game, but one thing that’s always bugged us is the character creation options.
There isn’t a whole lot of in-depth customization in the base game, and lord, the eyebrow options are terrifying, to say the least!
Thankfully, Enhanced Character Creation gives players complete control over the appearance of their characters by unlocking a ton of options.
Over 40 new facial sliders have been added for all races and genders, as well as a blending option that allows you to blend facial features together.
All of the complexions are also customizable, and you can now use color wheels or new presets to customize all tintable parts of the Inquisitor.
If that wasn’t enough, this mod also unlocks race and gender-restricted content while adding additional cut content, including scars, tattoos, and hairstyles.
Seriously, this mod completely revamps the character creation process, so you can really create unique characters that don’t look terrible compared to companions!
It even unlocks all voice options for every gender so that female-presenting characters can use male voices and vice versa.
Like the best Skyrim character mods, Enhanced Character Creation is a must-have for anyone who wants a truly unique Inquisitor!
Plus, it works seamlessly with mods that add additional options such as skin tones, hairstyles, eyes, and scars, so you can really get creative!
1. War Table – No Waiting
Taking our number one spot is a mod that absolutely everyone needs, and we seriously couldn’t go back to playing without it.
While some war table missions can take 10 minutes in real-time, others, like Destroy Venatori Spy Network, can take 24 hours! Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Seriously, while a couple of minutes is one thing, having to wait a full day for an in-game mission to complete is insane.
Especially since it’s just happening off-screen, and your only real payoff is some lore and unique loot.
Fortunately, the modding community wasn’t about to let this stand, and modder Tahira has created the perfect solution.
With War Table – No Waiting, all missions you undertake will automatically be completed with no waiting time required.
The only mission that still has a timer is Truth or Dare: A Dangerous Game, which will take one minute due to a blank page bug that occurs otherwise.
However, being able to quickly take care of these missions is life-changing as you no longer have to pour over each one to see which deserves attention first.
We really hope DA4 doesn’t include a mechanic like this, though; if it does, we suspect a mod like this will be one of the first to debut!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our list of the 10 best Dragon Age Inquisition mods and found some you might not have downloaded yet!
DAI is one of our favorite games, but since downloading these mods, we can’t go back to playing the vanilla game.
War Table – No Waiting, especially, is an absolute game changer, and we couldn’t imagine having to play without it!
Here’s a quick recap of the 10 best Dragon Age Inquisition mods:
- War Table – No Waiting
- Enhanced Character Creation
- More Inquisition Levels
- More Loot – Remade
- Increase Inventory Capacity
- Multiple Romance Mod
- More Banter
- No More Fog of War
- Trespasser Skyhold PJ Replacer and Schematics
