Blood Control is a mage spell from the Blood Mage specialization in Dragon Age: Origins.


  • Spirit Damage (over time): 100.0 + Spellpower. If a target fails mental resistance check vs. the attacker's spellpower, it becomes the caster's ally for 20.0 * (Target Rank Duration Modifier) sec.
  • Range: 25m.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • In addition to damage-based Threat, 100 Threat is drawn from the target.


  • Requires active ability: Blood Magic.
  • The damage is always taken (spell resistance still applies). The damage over time duration is not scaled by Target Rank.
  • Activation base is in Health and values vary with fatigue%.
  • Spirit Damage values are displayed in the game as the color: Purple.
  • Arcane Warrior Spellcasting: The spell can be cast with your weapon(s) drawn.
  • Using this spell on the last standing enemy counts as ending a battle, allowing you to save and do things you couldn't do in battle if need be.
  • No XP is granted if a charmed enemy dies, nor is any XP granted if the charmed enemy directly kills a former ally. Walking Bomb or Virulent Walking Bomb cast prior to Blood Control will still result in experience if the explosion kills an enemy.
