Force Mage is one of the specializations available to the mage class in Dragon Age II. The force mage specializes in powers such as telekinesis and using their minds as a weapon.


All mage specializations manipulate energy, but Force Mages revel in it. A specialization popular in Kirkwall, they focus only on the raw application of magic, in all its vicious glory—maelstroms that draw opponents, ethereal weight that crush and slow, or great waves that throw enemies about like ragdolls. Targets not to be toyed with are simply slammed into the ground, as though pummeled by a great fist. And in their mastery of such damage, Force Mages can make themselves all but immune to similar attacks, an ability that hints at the true discipline they must maintain. After all, unsubtle doesn't mean unsophisticated—the Force Mage specialization requires uncommon precision to keep such overwhelming power under control.[1]

  • Bethany gets this specialization after The Deep Roads Expedition.
  • Force Mage talents seem to be unable to move non-humanoid enemies, i.e., enemies with more than two legs. However, the small amount of damage dealt by Fist of the Maker and the movement and attack speed effects of Pull of the Abyss and Gravitic Sphere are still present.
  • Force Mage spells incur friendly fire in Nightmare mode.


  • It's the only completely new specialization that doesn't appear already in Dragon Age: Origins.
