Polymorph in Divinity Original Sin 2 Divinity Original Sin 2 Guide, walkthrough

This page of the Divinity Original Sin 2 guide contains a detailed description of Polymorph magic school. You'll learn what kind of magic the school is characteristic for, what spells can you utilize and their effects.

Polymorph abilities allow you to inflict many negative statuses on enemies but also strengthen your character by increasing physical armor or giving an ability to fly on a battlefield. It is great for melee-oriented classes, especially those that rely on Strength such as Fighter or Paladin. In addition to that, each point invested in it gives that character 1 extra Attribute point.

Warning - if you have problems with finding traders that offer a particular skill book, you can check the chapter with maps of Fort Joy, Reaper's Coast, Nameless Isle and Arx where you can find locations of all traders in the game.
