For the spell in Dragon Age: Origins, see Rock Armor (Origins).

Rock Armor is a mage spell from the Primal tree in Dragon Age II.

Information Edit

  • Armor: +25%

Notes Edit

  • This ability is more powerful than it might appear at first glance, as it does not actually change the armor value provided by the equipment, but instead provides a flat +25% bonus to physical damage resistance. For example, a mage with an armor value of 76 and a damage reduction value of 7%, who then activates rock armor, will still have an armor value of 76 but an increased damage reduction of 32%.
  • The Galvanism ability increases the effectiveness of Rock Armor to 125%. Consequently, if Galvanism is taken, the Rock Armor will provide a bonus of 31.25% to physical damage resistance. It means that a mage using improved Rock Armor and good equipment with Runes of Protection can push their physical damage resistance to very high values.
  • The actual rock armor is invisible when not in combat.
