Mark of Death is a rogue talent from the Assassin specialization in Dragon Age: Origins.


  • All attacks against a marked target including spells increase target's DamageScale property by +0.2 for 20s duration. In the majority of cases, DamageScale equals 1.0, so Mark of Death usually translates into an effective +20% damage bonus.
  • Range: 8m.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • 60 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%.
  • Prior to patch 1.03, Mark of Death was stackable. With three Assassins in the party, it was possible to get +60% bonus damage. However, as of patch 1.03, Mark of Death no longer stacks with itself.
