Captivating Song is a rogue talent from the Bard specialization in Dragon Age: Origins.

Information Edit

  • Area of Effect: 4m sphere. The bard begins an entrancing song that stuns hostile targets nearby for 3 seconds unless they pass a mental resistance check vs the bard's cunning attribute every 4 seconds. Continuing the song does not drain stamina, but the bard cannot move or take any other action while singing.
  • Conjuration time: 2s.

Notes Edit

  • Upkeep is in Stamina.
  • During this song, the character is unable to do anything except deactivate the song from tactics or the toolbar. This includes deactivating from the talents menu, or dragging the talent from the menu to the toolbar. If the character's tactics activates this song, it's advisable to have the talent on toolbar, or the character may be stuck.
  • Bards may only maintain one song at a time.
  • The Force Field does NOT negate this sustained ability effects and so the two work in great tandem.

Bugs Edit

  • It may be possible to activate 2 songs at once, if you activate one directly after the other.
