Upset Balance is a rogue talent from the Duelist specialization in Dragon Age: Origins.


  • The duelist executes a quick move that throws the opponent off balance, imposing -20% movement speed and -20 defense penalties unless the target passes a physical resistance check vs the duelist's cunning attribute. Duration (adjusted by opponent rank): 10s.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • 10 Threat is supposed to be drawn from the target. As of Patch 1.02, no Threat is drawn.


  • Activation base is in Stamina and values vary with fatigue%.
  • Melee only.
  • Upset Balance's applied penalty doesn't stack with itself.
