Bloom is a unique battleaxe in Dragon Age II. It is among the most powerful two-handed weapons in the game, dealing pure cold damage, runes withstanding.

Acquisition Edit

Looted from an Arcane Horror during the Act 3 quest The Awiergan Scrolls: Third Aspect.

Background Edit

Our hero strode the winding road,
Defiant of the vile.
Uncertain pause for home and cause,
When met the monster's smile.

A man his kin through blood and sin
A bastard of the gloom.
A rising cut through bone and gut,
An awful skyward bloom.

—From "Song of Old Marches: The Death of Goodman Ser Austice at the Hand of the Reaver Shius," inscriptions collected by Philliam, a Bard!
—From Codex entry: Bloom

Notes Edit

  • Activated talents deal cold damage with this weapon equipped.
  • The two rune slots are great for installing Runes of Lightning; against demons, undead, and raiders, most of whom are vulnerable to electricity, the weapon deals +32 damage in total, almost the value of the weapon's base damage. This can make it a more cost-effective alternative to Sundering for the purposes of demon-slaying, while retaining the cold damage for rage demons and switching to The Celebrant to slay Revenants and other spirit-weak enemies.

Trivia Edit

This weapon's appearance is identical to Top-Chop Brand.
