It has constantly bother me a lot. Especially in the instance of Duncan because it clears his own armor, i beg your pardon is amazing and adds come his character. However my greatest reason is that it doesn't in reality make sense that if grey wardens space wanted criminals to go around with one armor that claims "HEY I'M A GREY WARDEN", specifically in Deberiam.

You are watching: Dragon age origins grey warden armor mod

Maybe I'm wrong, however could that be that the armor we view in DA2 and DAI is in reality an orlesian grey wardens armor, or is simply that they included none top top DAO?

What perform you think?

Totally agree, there's no factor to have actually the Grey Warden armor on past Ostagar or perhaps LotheringAnd, even then, only Alistair need to really it is in wearing it, since the HoF wouldn't have had time to acquire armour made with the emblem

There is a cool mod that keeps Duncan's main clothing model however makes it look a bit more grey-wardeny, but it's not super apparent so I choose it

I think the in-universe reason they don’t have uniform armor in DAO is since the Wardens have actually only been back in Ferelden because that about 20 years at this point. They had been exiled for years beforehand. Castle still building resources, finding recruits, etc. - castle don’t even have an official house base until you reclaim Soldier’s height in the Warden’s Keep DLC, just a warehouse room in Denerim. So i think castle literally just don’t have the emphasis on make everybody match. I also totally agree v you that even if they had the corresponding armor, it would certainly make a lot much more sense because that the HoF and also Alistair to not wear the so as not to attract attention. That specific mod never ever made sense to me at all.

I think it's the straightforward matter the Bioware not having actually fleshed out the Grey Wardens come the level of having a uniform and what it would look like. Similar to they hadn't developed the Qunari aesthetic and Sten look at merely surrounding to the human model. Now that there's much more than one game, dlc, and also money putting in, they space able to develop more world detail.

On the one hand you have a point, however on the various other hand the GW mage robe is simply so fashionable. It's way much better than any type of of the vanilla robes.

With Duncan's armour there is another mod that keeps his initial armour yet recolor the red part blue, and also for the truth that Wardens space criminals it is a little immersion breaking yet not much you have the right to do besides no wearing the armour, however with it not initially being in beginnings I simply think they had actually not gained down the architecture yet.

I stay the Warden Armor as much as I possibly can, and also justify the possible ramifications of that activity through a number of things:

It's shown rather at an early stage that couple of people truly believe the bullshit the spews the end of Loghain's mouth concerning the Grey Wardens.

My Warden is almost always Dalish, and being amongst his civilization you learn to take trip light, quick, and undetected by the populace, also in big groups. He can evade Loghain's pressures with loved one ease.

It might be a difficulty if you strutted it roughly Denerim before the Landsmeet (because at that point Loghain to know you are active in the city, and also thus a disguise is much less necessary), however even then it's displayed a safety captain wouldn't attempt to apprehend you even if he thought what Loghain says, since if he did shot the only thing he could look front to is a funeral.

I'm pretty certain they just added the armor in later games to look fancy and do the Wardens seems more cohesive... And because realistically the Wardens most likely do require to offer their recruits armor, due to the fact that Alienage elves and also casteless dusters would certainly never have the ability to bring their very own armor when they sign up with the taint club.

But for basic game-play reasons, the wouldn't be funny for the player come be grounding in the exact same armor the entirety game. Works much better in the last games due to the fact that every we never play a Warden again.

Also, ns agree around this part:

But my greatest reason is the it doesn't actually make feeling that if grey wardens space wanted criminal to go roughly with one armor that claims "HEY I'M A GREY WARDEN"

Especially because there room points whereby you deserve to lie/hide that you're a Warden, and where world distrust your claims of "Wardenhood". So from a lore point-of-view it provides sense the you just quietly ditched your Warden armor after Ostagar. That's what I constantly headcanon anyway, and also that Alistair and also the Warden were able to get some brand-new armor since people to be fleeing the darkspawn and also leaving every little thing they can't carry behind, or marketing it because that a steal. Bodahn even admit come scavenging things to offer that way.
