Blood Mage is one of the mage specializations in Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. A blood mage employs dark rites, originally taught to mortals by demons, in order to access more powerful magic. A blood mage must be willing to sacrifice their own life force or that of others in order to wield this power.
Blood Mage spells 编辑
Dragon Age: Origins:
During the Arl of Redcliffe quest line, a mage Warden can unlock the specialization if they enter the Fade to confront the Desire Demon. No other class can unlock it (even if Jowan is authorized to send a non-mage Warden), nor can any NPC mage sent in the Warden's stead. At the end of this Fade episode, you'll meet up with the true form of the Desire Demon; if you elect to converse with it, and strike a deal, one of the rewards available is the Blood Mage specialization. (If you do decide to go this route, plot results are the same as if you kill the demon - until the Epilogue, which will reveal a different fate for Connor. (See here for the Desire Demon dialogue tree.)
Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening:
- It can be unlocked by purchasing the manual from the bartender at The Crown and Lion tavern in Amaranthine.
- Additionally, the Baroness may also teach this specialization to the Warden-Commander during the Shadows of the Blackmarsh quest, if she is persuaded to give another reward in return for the latter's help in dealing with the villagers.
- This is currently bugged for pcxbox360, however there is an unofficial fix for PC users.
Blood Mage restricted/improvement gear编辑Blood Ring, obtained by winning four unofficial proving matches in Orzammar. Robes of Avernus, worn by Avernus in the Warden's Keep DLC.

Specialization combinations 编辑
Arcane Warrior 编辑
A particularly useful solution to a low Mana pool. Constitution is highly recommended with this combination. Blood Wound is an excellent asset for the more offensive Arcane Warrior or a tank drawing threat.
