Mighty Blow is a warrior talent from the Two-Handed tree in Dragon Age: Origins.


  • The warrior gains a +10 attack bonus for a single strike. If it hits, the blow deals critical damage and imposes a movement speed penalty to the target if the target fails a physical resistance check vs the attacker's strength attribute.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • 20 additional Threat is supposed to be drawn from the target. As of Patch 1.02, only damage-based Threat is drawn.


  • Activation base is in stamina and values vary with fatigue%.
  • Useful when combined with later tier talents based on crits, such as Stunning Blows and Destroyer.
  • Mighty Blow's applied penalty doesn't stack with itself.


  • The Slow effect is not implemented. An unofficial fix for the PC is available here.
