It helps with 'A Wink and a Smile', as there are some persuasion attempts in the DLC, yet I think the DLC levels with you, so you can complete it whenever.
I would recommend when you're just starting out, to go exploring until you find a creature with a red name (meaning, it's eligible for the 'out of your league' trophy), save the game, switch the game to easy (presuming you're on hard), beat it, and once the trophy pops, just load your previous save if you had to switch difficulties, as not to fuck with the hard trophy if you're attempting that on your first playthrough.
The DLC doesn't necessarily help out with Green Thumb, as the reagents are scattered throughout the normal game anyways, and simply rely on your alchemy skill to harvest. If you can't figure out which ones you need, an easy way is to look in your reagent bag (it's a subscreen in your inventory), see which reagents are really low, and follow the guide on where to harvest them. Remember that looting them off enemies doesn't count, so even if you have 20 of a reagent, you could still need to harvest all 10 of it from the environment.
OK, thanks for the info. I knew about the reagent part, I was just wondering if there were more of the more rare reagents in these DLC's . I may just do a quick new character to get the "Out of your League" trophy.
Thanks to the General09 for the awesome sig and Beam for the badass avy and In2 for the dank platbar!
Great guide man Almost got my platinum, just the reagents and lorestones left
for the Wink and a smile trophy, I Received it today only after completing around 100 quests and like 45 hours played. I made sure i upgraded my persuasion skill from the beginning so I havent failed any.
Fotr the "Juggler" trophy, I found an easier way...just unlock the "arcane weaponry IV" and that took me 50 points in the sorcery skill tree. that has a dodge move that hits the enemy in the air and gets you the 5 hits VERY easily, you dont have to do anything. hope that helps
