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


  • The character quickly strikes a target four times, gaining +3 armor penetration and +8 attack, but damage is reduced by -40% for each successful attack.
  • Shield Mastery causes the damage from each hit to be maximized (highest roll on the weapon's damage range).
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • 70 additional Threat is supposed to be drawn from the target. As of Patch 1.02, only damage-based Threat is drawn.


  • Activation base is in stamina and values vary with fatigue%.
  • Unlike other Weapon and Shield attacks, each strike with Assault will also proc Righteous Strike.
  • The hits can be critical hits.


Kill 50 enemies using the Assault talent. (PC)
