Encore Schematic is a tier 3 staff schematic from the Trespasser DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition.



  • Can be obtained by first looting a treasure map from a skeleton found just to the left upon entering the Crossroads. The map will reveal four halla statuettes found in the Winter Palace. Obtain all four statuettes to obtain the Encore Schematic.

    • Attack Speed Bonus: 20%

    • Damage bonus per hit: 100% of weapon base damage
    • Number of hits: 2
    • Radius: 8 meters

  • Buffs are retained even when applying another ability via masterworks.
  • Only one buff can be active at a time. A new buff can be cast after the current one expires.
  • Multiple mages with an Encore staff in the party can apply multiple buffs, one per staff user.
  • Since the Mark of the Riff and Sing-Along buffs cause their effects with each strike, Energy Barrage can be used to quickly deal massive damage or replenish a quarter of your health respectively.
