Triple Strike is a monster ability in Dragon Age: Origins.

Information[]

The attack and effect varies slightly with the abomination type:

    • Penalty to -10 mental and -10 physical resistances for 5s
  • Hunger: The abomination strikes its target three times, dealing normal damage and draining mana or stamina from the target with each hit.
    • -10 drain
  • Rage: The abomination strikes the target three times, dealing normal damage with each hit, and dealing spirit damage for a short time on the third hit.
    • Total Damage: 30 damage
    • Duration: 5s
  • Sloth: The abomination strikes its target three times, dealing normal damage with each hit, and stunning on the third hit.
    • Stun: 3s
    • Additional penalty to -10 attack and -10 defense for 5s

Notes[]

  • Desire and sloth tooltip descriptions or script seem to be switched. Originally the tooltip had desire stuns and sloth reduces strength (mental and physical resistances) but the monster_singletarget.nss script has it reversed.
  • Desire (but is actually sloth, see note above) abomination's tooltip says strength but the monster ability script is actually penalty to mental and physical resistance, and is not to the "strength" the attribute.

Bugs[]

  • A sloth abomination's Triple Strike actually increases the target's attack and defense by 10. A desire abomination's Triple Strike actually increases the target's physical and mental resistances by 10. A fix is included in this unofficial patch.
