The more common type. Encountered in [[Lothering]] during the quest [[When Bears Attack]] and in the [[Brecilian Forest]]. A [[Mage]] Warden will also get the black bear companion for the remainder of the [[The Harrowing (quest)|Harrowing]] in the [[Magi Origin|Origin story]]. Second [[ranger]] talent lets you summon a black bear, while the [[shapeshifter]]s can turn into one with their second spell. Ranger's bear levels up with character and thus makes for a great tanking ally, with high health and damage output. While same applies to the bear form, its use prevents the casting of spells and thus should only be used as a last resort.

Bears are a creature in Dragon Age: Origins.

Background

Normally, it is almost unheard of for bears to attack travelers. They are, in fact, so shy and so inactive during the day that most people never encounter a bear at all. However, should a bear be provoked, they are remarkably dangerous. The normally placid-seeming creatures become enraged, and can strike massive blows with their paws, capable of knocking a man off his feet.
—From Codex entry: Bear

Types

Black Bear

Black bear

A summoned black bear.

Black bears are the most common type of bears. They can be summoned by a Ranger and Shapeshifters can transform into one. The Ranger's bear levels up with the character and thus makes for a great tanking ally, with high health and damage output. While same applies to the bear form, its use prevents the casting of spells and thus it should only be used as a last resort.
