The Inquisitor and their companions can select from a variety of abilities to define their character.

Types of abilities Edit

Each ability tree contains active abilities, upgrades, and passive abilities.
Active abilities have diamond-shaped icons. They can be mapped to your hotbar and then used in combat.
Upgrades are attached to an ability and make it stronger.
Passive abilities have circular icons and are permanent boosts to your character that are always active.
Use "L" (console) to navigate the trees and inspect an ability's details.

Players are limited to a total of 8 mapped abilities at any given time. There is no 'Ability Wheel' like in previous Dragon Age games.

Activated Edit

Diamond icons represent active abilities that have an instant effect: the character executes a special attack or action (e.g. using Flashfire to ignite an enemy).

Passive Edit

Circle icons represent passive abilities that add a permanent bonus, change in game mechanics, or upgrade to an existing ability (e.g. doing more damage with elemental spells). Also, all passive abilities add 3 points to a certain attribute, often related to the character's class (i.e., Strength or Constitution for Warriors).
