Bears are creatures 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.

Great Bear

The one in the picture above. It is far larger and more powerful than the Black bear, and gains Overwhelm. Master Ranger converts the summoned bear to Great Bear, marginally increasing its power and letting it use Rage.

Bereskarn

A bear corrupted by the Blight, that has lost its sentience and became a ghoul, much like Blight wolves and Corrupted spiders. They use the same skills as Great bears, but have much higher stats, with increased armor, health, attack and defence. A Shapeshifter's Bear Shape will be upgraded to Bereskarn with Master Shapeshifter.

Bugs

ps3Icon ps3 When summoned, the Great Bear will often get stuck in normal-sized doorways. This is noticeable, for example, during the Warden's Keep DLC quest.
