Easy Infinite Money Trick

This is an easy merchant trick that allows you to quickly make lots of gold. To do it enter the trade window with any merchant. Then click (and hold) an item in your inventory. While still holding down the Left mouse button press and hold the Right mouse button. Now, drag the item over to the merchant's inventory while still holding down both Left and Right mouse buttons. When you now let go of both mouse buttons simultaneously you will notice that the item will sell for 2x the normal selling price. If you now buy the item back from the merchant for 1x the normal price you will make a profit. Performing this trick is an easy way to get lots of Gold early which will allow you to buy ALL the skill/stat books and the best equipment much earlier in the game.

Awakening Expansion Pack Console Command Codes

Create a shortcut to your desktop of 'daorigins.exe' (Dragon Age/bin_ship/daorigins.exe). Then go to 'Shortcut Properties' and under 'Target' add '-enabledeveloperconsole' (without the quotes) after 'Dragon Age/bin_ship/daorigins.exe'.
On the Steam version this can be done by right clicking on the game in your Games List, selecting 'Properties' and clicking 'Set Launch Options'. This will allow you to enter command line option.
Locate the 'keybindings.ini' file in the 'My DocumentsBioWareDragon AgeSettings' and find the line 'OpenConsole_0=Keyboard::Button_X' (GRAVE is default, change X to any button that is not already used in the game.)
Save the file, and start the game with the 'Dragon Age/bin_ship/daorigins.exe' shortcut you created on your desktop.
During the game press the key that you chose (Keyboard::Button_X) and then type the following codes (without the quotes). These codes have only been tested on the retail version of the game so may not work on the Steam version. Don't worry if you do not see the console or what you are typing as this is normal.

Type 'runscript pc_immortal' (You will still take damage, but will not die.)

Type 'runscript addxp' (number here, some work some don't)

Free Class Unlock

Find a merchant that sells a book that unlocks a class and save the game. Then sell enough of your items to get the required amount of gold to buy the book. The class will become unlocked for ALL your characters when you purchase the book and when you then load your save game you will have the class unlocked along with everything from the saved game before you sold them to get the book.

Easy Experience

To get Experience points early in the game go to the city of Denerim as soon as you leave Lothering and search for a building named 'Wonders of Thedas'.
