Beyond the Veil is a warrior talent from the Spirit Warrior specialization in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening.


  • +50% chance to dodge attacks
  • -10 stamina regeneration
  • Grants immunity to knockdown, stun, and slip effects (undocumented).

With Soulbrand:

  • +20% spell resistance
  • Attacks deal spirit damage.

With Blessing of the Fade:

  • +20% movement speed
  • +20% attack speed (melee only)
  • +25% spell resistance


  • While spirit damage does bypass armor, it should be noted that damage output will inevitably decrease against spirit-resistant enemies without hexes.
  • A very strong combination is to have a warrior with Beyond the Veil, Blood Thirst, Swift Salve and Precise Striking active to reach maximum attack speed and to have a mage set to cast Affliction Hex and Vulnerability Hex. Negative resists are capped at -100%, and so this tactic can effectively double the damage output of a warrior. pcpcIt is advisable to use this mod to avoid running into haste stacking bugs.
  • Items that increase spirit damage (Dreamsever, Spiral Band, etc.) increase a warrior's melee damage while Beyond the Veil is active.
  • Target with spell shield is immune to its damage, you have to deactivate it.
  • Soulbrand, Fade Burst and Blessing of the Fade passively grants +5% spirit damage each, that is a total of +15% spirit damage when Beyond the Veil is active.
