I was wondering, should a Tevinter mage (around Magister level but not yet Archon) duel with a first enchanter class mage from any other circle who'd have the upper hand? I mean first enchanters are some of the most powerful and experienced mages in Thedas but their magical training is still kept under heavy control, while the whole land of Tevinter is basically all about magical power. So who would you put your money on? We are talking about a one on one duel to the death and both of them can go all out, no templars involved. -- (talk) 10:38, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

If they where blood mages tevinter mage win even such a noob as jowan can kick ass with blood magic which should give power up but still hawke mage non blood mage defeated one of the most powerful blood mages in history have little sense for me.Bonus points go for mages who were trained in spirit magic and give that mages in tevinter probably know how use swords and mages in circle not and hawke (apostate) know how use them too but warden mage (circle mage) not have any combat traning until he take arcane warrior spec.

I think people in the DA universe seriously overestimate the threat of blood magic. It isn't really that powerful. I have yet to run into a blood mage who I haven't been able to kill with enough motivation. I would say a First Enchanter would probably win. (talk) 15:02, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

I am not entirely sure of the relative power between them, but I would atleast give the magister some points considering he/she likely has more experience fighting mages. Autoslizer (talk) 15:20, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Mage Warden didn't even have a rank of an enchanter and defeated Caladrius. The Warden had help of companions, but Caladrius had his soldiers. Another magister is the arcane horror in Wending Wood and the Warden commander defeated him with no problem. Hawke killed Corypheus, a mutated ancient magister, also the Champion and the company fought and won fights with Handrianna and Danarius and Tevinter mages, who tried to take the Tome of Koslun. Besides there are antimagic spells, if magister and enchanter cast anti-magic sphere on themselves, then they can fight only by fists. If they are cut of lyrium and animals or people, then that's like duel of gunmen with no ammo for both of them. In that case magister can be desperate to use own blood to cast spells, but the question is whose health will go to zero earlier? (talk) 17:20, June 13, 2013 (UTC)
