For the greatsword in Dragon Age: Inquisition, see Starfang (Inquisition).

Starfang is a unique untiered weapon that requires the Warden's Keep DLC.

Acquisition Edit

Starfang is obtained by bringing the Meteor Metal Ore found during The Crater World map encounter to Mikhael Dryden in Soldier's Peak after the completion of the Soldier's Peak quest. When you speak with Mikhael with the meteor ore in your inventory, you can ask him if he can forge a weapon for you out of it. He gives you a choice between making you a longsword or a greatsword. Choose carefully, as there is only enough ore for one weapon.

Notes Edit

  • Starfang is arguably the most, or at least one of the most, powerful swords in Dragon Age: Origins.
  • You can find the ore even if you do not have the DLC.
  • The item will not import over to Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening.
  • Starfang will grade down from Starmetal (Tier 8) to Dragonbone (Tier 7) if it is sold to certain vendors.
  • Although Starfang itself wasn't included in Dragon Age II, its model was reused for Perrin's Nail.
  • Starfang's general model is shared by Maric's Blade, Dwyn's Sword, Girl's Best Friend, and the Keening Blade, albeit with a different color scheme.
  • The nature of Starfang's creation could be a reference to the sword Dawn from A Song of Ice and Fire, another extremely powerful sword supposedly created from a fallen star.

Dragon Age RPG Edit

In the Dragon Age (tabletop RPG), the greatsword version of Starfang, renamed "Meteor Sword", is available as a "permanent magic item" reward for player characters.[1]

Forged from strange metal found in a meteorite, this perfectly balanced greatsword is light enough to be wielded by even the most inexperienced warrior, but it truly shines in the hands of a master.
