Winter in Dragon Age: Inquisition is an Ability Tree of the Mage class.

 



Masters of this school of magic summon cold that bites deeper than the cruelest winter. Their icy spells slow and weaken enemies.

 

 

Winter Mages are able to command the power of Winter, using sheets of ice to freeze enemies in place or create protective barriers, blurring forward across the battlefield on waves of cold, or summoning freezing blizzards to chill and damage the enemy.
