So, this is like the Jedi abilities of Knights of the old republic. Hehe, I knew the fighting style of the the mages in DA 2 reminded me of Knights of the old republic. With this specialization is going to be like playing as a Jedi. --SerSeploud (talk) 03:48, February 25, 2011 (UTC)

I was all set to play a Rogue until I got a taste of the Mage in the demo. Definitely doing a damage dealing force mage for my first playthrough now. :) Matt 2108 (talk) 03:24, February 25, 2011 (UTC)

I was disappointed at first when I saw that there was no arcane warrior in DA2 but with mages fighting like that who needs arcane warriors?. A mage in DA2 with good stats must be a killing machine just like the arcane warriors.--SerSeploud (talk) 03:45, February 25, 2011 (UTC)

What do we really know about this spec? So far, I haven't heard anything about this other than the fact that it's kind of like Jedi powers. I'm sitting here wondering what kind of powers you would have that would'n't be total overkill. --Davilimap (talk) 00:35, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

haha, Maybe because Bioware's "favourite" on part 2 is the mage...makes sense considering the story is all about mages and templars. On the first trailer Hawke was wearing the mage armour and staff and even though he uses some talents that are of the warrior and Rogue he finished the fight with the mage finishing blow. I'm not saying the mage is canon because the class is whatever you chose.. but it appears that the mage is the "poster boy". I'm happy that mages engaging an enemy at close range are no longer doomed --SerSeploud (talk) 02:14, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

Mages were stronger in origins with more spells that completely remove a foe (or two) from battle. Half the spells are still the same such as entropy and firestorm/ball and heal. DA2 has less AoE's and more newer stuff so that is what we get for no arcane warrior i guess... (talk) 20:30, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

Wow, now that I've finally seen the abilities I'm even more excited. This tree is awesome. Matt 2108 (talk) 00:29, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

I'm actually feelin more like a biotic from the Mass Effect universe with this specialty. Probably because I was playing Mass Effect 2 before I got this game, and they are both Bioware games... --Geotexan (talk) 06:23, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Force Mage really is the best mage specialization, but I can't help but wonder does anybody find any usefulness in Pull of the Abyss?Maehlice (talk) 02:38, April 3, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, yes. It is best used to pull enemies away from or into a target, either away from a weak party member, or to set up for an AoE spell or talent. --Geotexan (talk) 23:13, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
