Playing a mage in Dragon Age Origin, I notice that in the mage castle there are potions and lyrium dust everywhere, mostly in various chests and dressers, sparkling lootwise ala WOW. I have been just vacuuming this stuff up, but am I "stealing it"? Do I have like some alignment rating that is sinking into neutral evil, or can I just keep snorting all the lyrium dust I can find?

  • The only advice I can give is you to be careful with your potions, because you CAN run out of potions and none are available in the game anymore for purchase at some point. – user28015 Aug 26 '14 at 7:09

No, there is no alignment system that is affected by looting or stealing. There's just the relationship system that affects what your allies think of you based on the quests you do and decisions you make. Feel free to loot everything you see.

  • There are a couple of places where looting chests has consequences (notably the Dalish Elf Village where the leaders get mad at you if you try to open their chests), but they are few and far between. – Thunderforge Jan 10 '17 at 21:44
