Attributes | Character development Divinity: Original Sin II Guide

Each character in the game uses six attributes that determine their development, affect general modifiers and sometimes allow you to activate some of the talents. Of course, attributes work closely together with abilities, which expand the array of the available options, but in the course of the character creation process, attributes form the basis and the main point of reference for all of the parameters of the character.

In default, each character has their attributes at level 10. This doesn't give you any negative modifiers but it also doesn't grant you any bonuses - the only exception to that is Initiative's level which is equal to Wits attribute. Each attribute can be increased up to level 40 and then it can be increased even more by using items that offer bonuses to particular statistics. You can't have your attributes lower than level 10.

Strength

Strength influences amount of damage dealt by weapons (excluding daggers, wands, magic staffs and ranged weapons) as well as abilities (Warfare and Polymorph trees) that are based on that attribute. In addition to that, each point increases character's maximum load capacity. This attribute is very important to all characters that use strength based weapons - fighters, knights or battlemages.

Each strength point gives +5% additional damage and 10 load capacity points. It looks like this:

Finesse

Note - the cap for this attribute is level 40, which translates into +210% additional health points (the increase is over three-fold).

Memory

Developing this attribute increases the number of memory slots, which you can fit with skills. Use more speciall abilities and discover their upgraded versions. This attribute is crucial for most characters - it can significantly improve the performance of these warriors who use the Wafare and Polymorph skills, as well as those mages who use a few schools at once. Assassins and archers don't need as many memory slots.

Each Memory point gives one additional slot:

Value

10

12

+2 ability slots

13

+3 ability slots

14

20

+10 ability slots

Note - this attribute can be developed up to level 40, providing 30 additional skill slots. You can also use the Mnemonic Talent to get 3 slots more.

Wits

Along with developing the Wits, the character will get increased chance of dealing critical damage and increased Initiative. Each point also increases the chance of discovering traps and locating hidden treasures. It is the key attribute of your characters, mainly due to the Initiative bonus - the higher that coefficient is, the earlier will you character be able to move during a fight: having the upper hand in this respect may be the most important aspect of combat.

Each Wits point increases critical damage chance by 1% and gives 1 additional Initiative. As follows:
