Reaver: Blood Magic isn’t the only art taught by demons. Reavers are warriors who have tapped into an ancient and feared art of commanding and using the energy that flows through blood and bone to cause sheer damage to foes. However, this immense power does come with a painful price; the reaver is to give up an enormous amount of his own life force to get a substantially large increase in physical strength.
They can replenish their health back by stealing it from their foes while they bởi damage, but it is an absolute gamble. Reavers are at their optimum strength when closer lớn death và can turn the tables in a battle just when things seem lớn be getting out of hand .
Templar: A Templar has only one main goal to achieve: withstand and suppress magic. Templars are skilled warriors who have sworn the duty of restricting and containing magic. This is not a divine talent but achieved through immense training and dedication. All officially trained Templars belong to The Templar Order, which serves the Chantry.
Templars are able béo drain mana và disrupt spells cast by mages. The most able hunt malificars và bring them béo justice, while others are Khủng bởi vì the same with apostates. “ Magic is mập serve man, not béo rule over him ” were the words spoken by the prophet Andraste, as she threw lao dốc the Tevinter Imperium. Templars are there lớn make sure that these words are obeyed by anyone withholding the power of magic .
Berserker: The name of this specialization itself tells what warriors who practice it would be like and what they would be capable of doing. Berserkers are risk-takers who go all out to do one thing: hit, hit and hit as much as they can, regardless of the circumstances and surroundings. Taught originally by dwarves, this specialization sacrifices finesse for an increase in brutality and strength.
This makes an absolutely terrifying scene for adversaries, & even the mindless darkspawn appear bự cower in front of the berserker’s rage. A berserker has three objectives on the battlefield : lớn thất bại control, mập allow his / her rage Khủng empower him / her, và lớn kill without fear .
Starting Attributes for Mage are :
- Starting attributes: +3 Magic, +2 Willpower, +1 Cunning

Once the rulers of the world, the mages destroyed themselves by attempting béo usurp heaven, or so sánh the Chantry says. Gifted by the divine with immense super-natural powers, mages interact with the forces of magic phệ decimate foes. Due Khủng the suppression by the Chantry và Templars, mages are restricted mập accessing only a pinch of their true potential .
Unlike normal people, mages are fully lucid while in the fade, & because of demons & spirits alike are attracted phệ them. Moreover, they are gifted in counter-acting và exorcising demons và can alternatively make pacts with them .
Warriors & rogues may have a greater edge in one-on-one combat, but it is the mages that can truly create a massive crater on the battlefield .

Force Mage: Only the most adept and disciplined mages can truly learn Force magic. Like the name suggests, mages that practice this kind of magic control vary force fields that exist all around us. Whether it is currents of energy that draw enemies closer to their doom or crushing weight-force that will also slow them down, Force magic is a ‘force’ to be reckoned with.
The magic is raw và pure, with little elemental nội dung. For a force mage, the mind is the ultimate weapon, và how they choose mập use it determines the outcomes in a battlefield. The biggest challenge, however, is not how bự use it, but béo keep such enormous power under control .
Spirit Healer: The Spirit Healer is the shaman, the curer and ‘paramedic’ of the party. Mastered in the magic to heal the fibers of flesh and blood, the spirit healer’s way is that of restoration, not destruction. These mages are the most well-accepted and tolerated of the lot, as they use magic to give benefit to mankind and true protect and truly serve man.
But that does not mean that they are not a force bự be reckoned with ; Templars themselves fear the Healers most, because they are the most capable of mages in drawing power from the Fade .
Blood Mage: A forbidden art originally taught to mortals by demons, Blood Magic is the most feared and hated magic. Mages who practice this magic are known as blood mages and are according to the Chantry punishable by death. Such heavy punishments are not aimless; they are because Blood Mages use the life force of others (blood) to perform magic.
Moreover, blood mages can learn béo control the minds of others, twisting their life force for their own purposes. Though extremely corruptible, blood mages may not always be evil. In fact, there have even been Grey Wardens who have specialized in this dark art, using it phệ fight against the darkspawn và over blights. But it is true that an extraordinary amount of will-power is required mập keep this immense power under control because the temptation for a little more of it is always there .
Here are the special attributes for Rogue :
- Starting attributes: +3 Dexterity, +2 Cunning, +1 Willpower
- Starting talent: Miasmic Flask
- Starting health: 125
- Starting stamina: 130
The Rogue class doesn’t have the brute strength of a warrior, doesn’t have the rigorous powers of a mage. So what does a rogue have ? The answer is agility, tốc độ, và wits .
When it comes phệ one on one combat, rogues are simply unmatched ; their tốc độ và wits outclass the strength và power of warriors và mages alike. Be it an archer or a deadly assassin, all rogues have one similarity : cunningness .
The use of the environment is their skill, & taking advantage of the enemy’s mistake is their hobby. Whether they are raining arrows from a distant or slashing at enemies with their nifty daggers at immense tốc độ, rogues will always make it look classy & professional .
Assassin: The Assassins work clean, and do the job in the most precise and accurate manner possible. Lock on a target, find its weakness, and exterminate; that is how they do things. Each and every enemy is a prey, a job at hand, and finishing him, finishing him clean and with precision, is what the Assassins are experts at.
While working in groups, they rely on communication, not through the tongue, but through simple understanding, & hint the enemies ’ weaknesses lớn one another, allowing a precision-styled execution phệ take place .
Shadow: As the name suggests, Shadow Rogues do the job in the shadows, and their primary weapon is stealth. Poisoning, back-stabbing and stealing are their expertise. Their main focus is catching their opponents while they are unaware, and to not let their cover be blown. These rogues look to work solo and always try to find ways to finish their enemies while making sure they weren’t seen or heard.
Duelist: Duelists sacrifice strength and accuracy to make way for agility and speed. They might miss a few times, and may not be as sneaky as Shadows, but they will be twice as hard to hit, and immeasurably hard to calculate. They are specialists in wielding daggers and using them to cripple enemies by exploiting their weaker body parts.
