Bloom is a unique battleaxe in Dragon Age II. It is among the most powerful two-handed weapons in the game, dealing pure cold damage, runes withstanding.
Looted from an Arcane Horror during the Act 3 quest The Awiergan Scrolls: Third Aspect.
Our hero strode the winding road,
Defiant of the vile.
Uncertain pause for home and cause,
When met the monster's smile.
A man his kin through blood and sin
A bastard of the gloom.
A rising cut through bone and gut,
An awful skyward bloom.
—From "Song of Old Marches: The Death of Goodman Ser Austice at the Hand of the Reaver
Shius," inscriptions collected by Philliam, a Bard
