Shield Bash is a warrior talent from the Shield Bash tree in Dragon Age: Origins.

Information Edit

  • The character shield-bashes a target, gaining +10 attack, dealing normal damage as well as knocking the target off its feet for 3 seconds unless it passes a physical resistance check vs the attacker's strength attribute.
  • Shield Mastery adds the strength bonus a second time in the damage calculation. The bonus is not increased if the hit is critical.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • 20 additional Threat is supposed to be drawn from the target. As of Patch 1.02, only damage-based Threat is drawn.
  • Shield Bash can also free a party member from immobilizing effects such as Grab & Roots

Notes Edit

  • The Warden will start with this talent for free if he/she is a warrior of Human Noble or Dwarf Noble origin.
  • Activation base is in stamina and values vary with fatigue%.
  • The hit can be a critical hit.
  • It is useful as a way to quickly knock down mages.
