Tripwires are traps encountered in Dragon Age: Origins. Moving across the wire will trigger an effect, whether it is a ballista firing, a barrel exploding or just plain damage to a party member.

Notes Edit

  • It is possible to detect and disarm these traps with enough ranks in the Rogue's Deft Hands talent and/or high Cunning score. Disarming them is a rewarding business, as not only will your party be safe, but you will also gain valuable experience.
  • The ends of tripwires can sometimes be hidden within their surroundings. Switching to an isometric viewpoint and hovering the pointer over their location will cause the disarm icon to appear.
