Magister's Shield is an amulet found in Dragon Age: Origins. These items can be obtained through quests, found in chests, etc. They provide bonus stats for the main character and some companions

Magister's Shield - How to obtain

In Run-Down Back Street of Denerim, you will find the corpse of Ser Friden. This will start The Last Request quest. Go to the Deserted Building that appeared on the Denerim map.

Once you are close to the end: you go down the stairs and there are two doors:

  1. Blood Mage Sanctum - here you will fight the final boss and get the key for the Master Bedroom
  2. Master Bedroom - this is where you find Magister's Shield amulet. However, the door is locked and you either need to clear the Blood Mage Sanctum and get the key from the boss or use rogue to lockpick it.

Magister's Shield - Notes

  • This is one of the two amulets in the game that provide bonus defense together with Mark of Vigilance
