Mind Blast is a mage spell from the Spirit tree in Dragon Age: Origins.


  • Area of effect: self-centered 5m radius sphere.
  • Duration (s): (3.0 + (4.0 - [Party Size])) * [Target Rank Duration Modifier].
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • Clears all threat, except for distance-based threat drawn from affected enemies.


  • Activation base is in mana and values vary with fatigue%.
  • Arcane Warrior spellcasting: Requires to be cast with weapon(s) sheathed.
  • Works very well for shaking off melee enemies attacking the caster, if the caster runs away after using the spell. Otherwise, distance-based threat is likely too high and many enemies will resume attacking the caster after the stun wears off.
  • Useful for revealing stealthed Genlock rogues who announce their presence with their growls which can be heard just before they ambush. The blast stuns them and breaks their stealth.
