Warrior Specialization

Restrictions Warrior only 
Requirement Way of the Champion

Templar is a specialization of the Warrior class in Dragon Age 3: Inquisition that focuses on defensive maneuvers and resembles a tank.


These unrelenting warriors specialize in fighting mages and demons. No enemy's magic can withstand them, and they inspire and protect their allies with their righteous power.


How to Become a Templar

To receive this Specialization you must complete the quest Way of the Templar. It initiates by speaking with Ser in the Skyhold courtyard after completing the Specializations for the Inquisitor War Table Operation. You must collect 50 Embrium and 3 Broken Philters from the 3 locations listed below. They are NOT random drops, but instead drop from 3 specific enemies. Once you've collected the above materials you must craft the Philter at an "Inspect Requisitions" bench.

Construct a philter, study the methods of the templars, and Ser will reveal the secrets of this legendary specialization. Reclaim the Broken Philters of fallen templars from demons at: 1 in Witchwood, 1 in the West Road, and 1 in Lady Shayna’s Valley in The Hinterlands. Readings can be found among the belongings of Cassandra or, if those are unavailable, among the wares of the book merchant in Val Royeaux.
