Templar is a warrior specialization in Dragon Age: Inquisition.


Warriors who specialize in the Templar discipline empower not only themselves, but those around them, making every battle a little easier. Whether dispelling hostile magic or inspiring your comrades, this discipline puts an emphasis on supporting the party. Because of the templars' proficiency in battling mages and demons, this specialization is especially useful in closing Fade Rifts.


This specialization is obtainable through the Quest Way of the Templar, obtained from Ser. After acquiring the following, Ser will teach the Inquisitor the specialization.

  • Writing on Templar methods (available from either Cassandra or the book merchant in Val Royeaux).
