Sweeping Strike is a warrior talent from the Two-Handed tree in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening.

Information Edit

  • Affected enemies are only knocked to the ground if they fail a physical resistance check vs. the attacker's strength attribute.

Notes Edit

  • 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.

Bugs Edit

Bug icon Bug! pcIcon pc Sometimes when you activate the ability during fights the effect cone does not appear and you are unable to select the area of effect for the strike, making it impossible to aim and rendering the ability much less useful. It seems that this bug occurs after an enemy has already been selected, so using the ability at the beginning of a fight – before any target is selected – lets you aim at least once. After you select an enemy aiming is no longer possible until the currently selected enemy dies. After that you get another chance to aim until the next enemy is selected.
  • An unofficial third-party fix is available here.
