The Genlock forge master is a powerful genlock located deep within the Dead Trenches in Dragon Age: Origins.

Involvement Edit

This darkspawn can be encountered in a digged chamber after exiting the room containing several Legionnaire sarcophagi. The Warden can optionally confront this darkspawn group or move to the next chamber. The forge master is a reasonably strong opponent, and is supported by many hurlocks, genlocks equipped with bows, and one Hurlock alpha. It is advised that these are drawn out one by one first, before engaging the Forge Master himself. From range it will use a bow and potentially the Arrow of Slaying talent until engaged in close combat, where it will use a maul. Its hitpoints are substantial, and fighting it one-on-one can be difficult if there are still alive darkspawn allies which keep the party occupied.
