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


  • If the target fails a Mental Resistance check against the Cunning attribute:
    • The target is dazed for 5s (this is the same effect as caused by Disorient).
    • Threat for all enemies of the target is set to 1.
  • Range: 8m.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • 30 Threat is supposed to be drawn from the target. As of Patch 1.02, no Threat is drawn.


  • Activation base is in Stamina and values vary with fatigue%.
  • Distraction's applied penalty doesn't stack with itself.
