Would a dual wielding Templar reduce an enemy mage's mana twice (or nearly twice) as fast? Has anyone tested this mechanic? I'm on an Xbox, and so don't have access to the "behind the scenes" codes.--188.8.131.52 20:47, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
- I don't know about twice as fast, but because dual wielding has momentum and the ability to hit a lot more frequently than other styles, you will certainly drain mana faster this way. Lazuli 17:08, January 22, 2010 (UTC)
- Not exactly rigorous confirmation, but Duel-wielding Momentum'd Alistair made quite a few usually difficult fights a breeze on my recent playthrough. Zathrian and Gaxkang were the two most obvious examples; both only got off one or two spells before various multi-hitting techniques ate their mana, turning the rest of the battle into a simple endurance contest. Considering my Warden was an Arcane Warrior, this was pretty much the perfect result. =D. There were quite a few rather sad Blood Mages throughout the game, as well. Generally the effect is only noticeable on Boss level enemies or higher though, as most other enemies die before, or very quickly after, they run out of mana. Zakrael 19:43, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
Cleanse area actually requires level 9. Can't fix Edit

Templar in DA2 Demo Edit
Hey do we know some more about the Templars in general? There is the Templar Wesley in the Dragon Age 2 Demo who is married, I always was under the impression that Templars take vows just like our priests which forbid sexual intercourse and thus marriages are a no-go.
In DA:O Leliana hints that this is true by saying that she didn't take her final vows and thus is not a forbidden fruit and alas Alistair also states he did not take his final vows and is an option to romance...
