Beast | Characters Divinity: Original Sin II Guide

Check out all available and recommended classes for Beast!

The only character and potential companion (if you didn't select him as your main hero) that represents Dwarves. He can be found on a beach west from Fort Joy - he hides near a shipwreck. In this chapter, you can find information about the character itself, classes that are available to it (along with their descriptions) as well as a recommended class if you want to choose Beast as your main character or a companion.

Beast and his default class, Battlemage. - Beast | Characters - Characters - Divinity: Original Sin II Game Guide
Beast and his default class, Battlemage.

Recommended classes for Beast

Beast works great as:

  • Battlemage - his default class and the best choice for that character. Battlemage fights with two weapons which give him additional bonus to Dodge (thanks to Dual Wielding ability) and this works perfectly with his Sturdy talent which increases his health and chances for Dodge. This class also makes it easier to use Petrifying Touch ability because it works only at a short range.
  • Rogue, Shadowblade, Ranger or Wayfarer - usually, these classes require to deal as much damage as possible, however, in the case of this character, they also get increased chance for Dodge and more health points (thanks to Sturdy talent) which eliminates their biggest flaw. Another additional plus is Dwarven Guile talent which grants bonuses to Sneaking ability.
