Warrior is one of the three playable starting classes in Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, Dragon Age Legends, Dragon Age II, Dragon Age (tabletop RPG), and Dragon Age: Inquisition. Warriors are the front-line fighters, the backbone of any party under assault.
In Dragon Age: Origins they rely on both melee and ranged weapons but in Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition they only rely on melee weapons. Also they are supplemented by powerful special abilities that draw from deep reserves of stamina. They can withstand and deliver a great deal of punishment, and have a strong understanding of tactics. In Origins and Inquisition, all races can play as a warrior.
