Tempest is a rogue specialization in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Description Edit

From "Of Storms: Notes on the Tempest in Practice." Kihm's words make one passage stand out:

They expect folly in the Tempest and are fooled, for there is no madness in knowing the absolute limit of ability and charging to that edge. Wars may be a tactical affair, but the one-on-one meeting of combatants is decided by the one who first realizes they are in mortal peril and commits fully. Many reach that point; the Tempest starts there. By the time their foes have risen to match, it is too late.

And another:

They asked what type of shot they should encase the mixture in, expecting some trebuchet pot or a vessel fit to pour over a palisade. I bade them make it by the barrel and store it in my quarters with a thousand glass vials. They were afraid, and I smiled.

Another still:

Forward! Ever so! Where you were is dangerous! Where you go is dangerous! Different reasons, both to your advantage! Leap! Then leap again! Looking is for witnesses, not the disaster!

Also one more:

I did not say I was unappreciative, nor unimpressed. That you were a sight to behold is not in question. All I noted is that the Tempest is offensive not just in ability, but in what condition you leave the field. I should like a hundred of you to deploy in the cities of my enemy, and not a one to stand as defense in my own home.

A series of unstable brews follows.
—From Codex entry: Way of the Tempest

Tempest emphasizes elixir-based abilities to give your rogue a tactical advantage during combat. Flask of Frost, Flask of Fire, and Flask of Lightning all provide unique benefits, but they can't be used simultaneously- you must wait for the effects of one elixir to expire before activating a new one.

Acquisition Edit

This specialization is obtainable through the quest Way of the Tempest from Kihm.
