Arrow of Slaying is a rogue and warrior talent from the Pinning Shot tree in Dragon Age: Origins.

Information Edit

  • The archer attacks with an attack bonus of 15. If it connects, 2x normal critical hit damage is dealt. A Damage Bonus is applied if the attacker has the same or higher level than the defender.
  • Damage Bonus is calculated as (Random number between 25 and 50) * BonusMultiplier, where BonusMultiplier is:
Level Difference BonusMultiplier
0 2
1 3
2 0
3 1
4 6
5 7
6 4
7 5
8 10
  • This damage bonus is reduced to 10% against Lieutenant and Boss creatures, while Elite Boss creatures are immune.
  • The archer is exhausted after firing this shot, and suffers reduced stamina regeneration of -1.0 for 10 seconds. Master Archer grants an extra +15 attack when firing Arrow of Slaying.
  • Range: 60m.
  • Conjuration time: 3s.
  • 100 additional Threat is drawn.

Notes Edit

  • Activation base is in Stamina and values vary with fatigue%.

Bugs Edit

  • The script for this ability calculates the Bonus Multiplier like this: BonusMultiplier = LevelDifference ^ 2. This is not LevelDifference squared, the '^' operator used in the script is in fact bitwise XOR. Unofficial fix for PC available here.
