For the specialization in Dragon Age: Origins, see Duelist (Origins).


Duelist is one of the specializations available to the rogue class in Dragon Age II.

Background

The Duelist commands battle like a craftsman. Many rogues are adept at destroying enemies, but Duelists want challenge as well as victory. To them, combat is a proving ground where mettle is tested and mastery is proven. Unlike their stealthier counterparts, followers of this specialization will often announce their intent, inviting attention with bravado and insult. And while few can close as quickly or strike as decisively, Duelists can also choose to match targets parry for parry, extending or ending the battle as they see fit. To face a Duelist is to face a master of blade or bow—it's an opportunity to be grateful for, however briefly they allow it to last.[1]

Every duelist, even an archer, knows that the most memorable fights happen at close quarters... and that the first strike is the most crucial. To gain that advantage, the rogue vanishes behind a cloud of smoke, then strikes the enemy viciously from behind. This ability can be used from across the battlefield, for few rogues are as capable of moving under stealth as a duelist.
