Tips & Tricks:
* Read Everything. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire revels in its writing.
the first game in years to tell you how a character is acting rather than
with animations. It’s great! Take your time, read through every
book. Invest in the world and its setting. Pillars is a much better game
take the time to smell the roses.
* Remember to Scout! Scouting, that is, sneaking through dungeons is an
part of keeping your party alive. Entering into scouting mode allows you to
up on enemies and gives you the chance to highlight traps before you
* Don’t Get Hung Up on Quests. That said, this game has more quests than
shake a stick at. Don’t give up quickly, but if you’re really struggling,
to move on. Along with that, it’s perfectly okay to take a break from the
too. In fact, it’s the only way you’ll get to max level before you
* Get Some Rest: No, not the kind of rest you’ll need after playing the
night. Resting is the only way to remove aliments and is critical to
on long journeys. It’s easy to rest at any inn, but always have camping
to rest in the wild. Nobody wants to have to back track to town while in
of a dungeon.
* While creating a character, it is best to remember that there are no good
characters, and different people appreciate different aspects of the
* Be creative! Experiment with builds and make character you want to play,
character that guides say you should.
* Explore! Don’t rush through main quest if you’re playing for the first
you’ll miss out on lots of quests, rewards and experience.
* Pressing CTRL + [Number] while having a character (or group of
selected, will bind that character/group to that number.
* You can queue your abilities by holding down SHIFT, then clicking them in
you want them executed. Keep in mind that your character will move out of
if you queued abilities with different range.
* Always keep your eye on buffs and debuffs on the side of your character
Managing debuffs is very important in higher difficulties.
* When dealing with larger groups of enemies, make use of the environment –
pulling them to choke points.
Bonus In-game Pets:
Written by Orrah
Console commands for some extra pets.
There are 3 bonus pets that I know. Open the console and type in the
cosmic dog – gives you Comet:
Adds 1 might to the player character and the party gains bonus deflection
enemy weapon attacks.
cosmic bird – gives you Orbit:
Adds 1 perception to the player character and makes the party move
cosmic cat – gives you Luna:
Adds 1 dexterity to the player character and gives the party a chance for
weapon attacks to graze.
Note: These console commands do not disable achievements.
Animal Companion Hints:
– Multiclassed Rangers Animal Companions are (currently) exactly on the
and it is therefore recommeded to
multiclass a Ranger if not for the last few
abilities (Twinned Shot etc.)
– Lion / Bear / Boar: bigger character models hinder your other melee
getting to your enemies, make it
easier for your enemies to focus on the Animal
Companion and increases the chance
your Animal Companion is within enemy spells AoE,
especially true for the Lion, which
is no tank, and especially in narrow areas.
– Lion: not recommended for the above reason; compared to the Wolf it deals
– Antelope: recommended; while not as tanky as the Bear / Boar, it has a
character model diameter, +10 to
all defenses are 3.33 levels worth of Deflection /
Fortitude / Reflex / Will.
– Bear: highly recommended; +2 Armor, also useful to counter high weapon
compared to the Boar it has very
– Boar: highly recommended; Regenarates 41.2 HP per minute of combat, very
for a tank but it has very low
– Stag: not recommended; Carnage AoE is negatively affected by the Stags
Intelligence (-50% AoE); Carnage
attacks usually do 33% of the main attack damage
but the Stag has one of the lowest
main attack damage to begin with.
– Wolf: highly recommended; highest Damage packed in a small character

Efficient Ship-to-Ship Combat Guide:
Written by Tamaster
This guide will explain you what is the best ship setup for naval combat
are the most efficient maneuvers to destroy an enemy ship.
This section will explain what is the best ship loadout for combat, and
Ship Type – Junk
Min. Crew: 8
Max. Crew: 21
Cannons per Side: 5
Rest Space: 5
Base Hull: 80
The Junk is the best ship hands down in the entire game. The main reason
the absurd firepower it has, with five cannons per side. Other than this,
it is faster
than the Galleon, can soak a lot of hits with 80 Hull, and has the largest
and Supply capacity of all ships.
But let’s now see what is the best equipment to outfit, and why.
-=Core Ship Equipment=-
Cannons – 5 Double Bronzer per Side
The Double Bronzer is an incredibly overpowered cannon, dealing a mind
damage per shot. It has a slow reload, but that is not a problem as we will
see in the
next section of this guide. Getting 5 of these per side means you have a
of 60-75 for each volley, that is enough to instantly kill lesser ships,
and kill Galleons
and Junks in just 2 volleys. They are quite cheap, and for 10 you should
not spend more
than 6.000 gold. You can find this cannon type in Neketaka.
Hull Type – The Red Dream
This hull gives you +40 Hull Points, at the cost of some Combat Speed. This
this hull, you can have as many HP as a Galleon.
It can be bought at one of the main ports 16.000 gold.
-=Secondary Ship Equipment=-
Sail Type – Gulweave Sails
These sails only have a minor -5 to combat speed, while give a massive +30
to Sail Health.
You can find this type of sails in Splintered Reef Port, at the bottom
right of the map.
They cost only 9.000 gold.
Helm, Anchor and Lanterns
These are not really mandatory but can improve your combat speed more, get
variant for Helm and Anchor and Arcane Lanterns. In total this will cost
but take your time, it’s not mandatory.
This section will teach you what are the best maneuvers to perform in
combat to quickly
sink the enemy ship without many problems.
When combat starts, the first thing you should do is using the “Full
Speed Ahead” order,
until you get to the cannons optimal range. Since you will be using Double
optimal range will be 350 to 250 Metres.
When you arrive at optimal range, the next order to give should be
“Turn to Port” or
“Starboard”, it’s the same really, this will allow you to turn
the ship to aim the cannons.
Once the ship is turned, order to “Hold Position”, this will
stabilize the ship and give
the gunners a better hit chance.
Order to “Fire the cannons”, all the cannons on one side of the
ship will fire, and then
after damage is calculated, start reloading.
After the cannons fire, you will have to order “Prepare to jibe”,
a Jibe is a 180 degrees
turn, and this will bring the enemy ship on the other side of your ship,
meaning the other
five cannons, already loaded and ready, will be able to fire on it.
Once you completed the Jibe, order to “Hold Position” to
stabilize the ship, as Jibe
gives a very big malus to aiming and so stabilizing is essential to hit the
After holding position, order your cannons to fire.
Repeat everything from Step 5 until the enemy ship is destroyed.
Why this procedure works:
Because using Jibe gives you a much higher DPS than waiting X turns for the
one side to reload. The enemy will NEVER do this set of manouvers and
therefore will always
wait the reload of their cannons on 1 side, while you, using this strategy,
DPS and reload efficency, using the cannons on one side while the other
What to do in case of crew injury
An injured crew member will not do his job until healed, and in battle this
You can check ship status and see what crew members are wounded.
What matters are the cannoneers and the helmsman, all the other crew
members are to be
ignored if wounded. Wounded cannoneers mean a row of your cannons (1 per
will not fire anymore and be useless, while wounded helmsman means the ship
will not move.
Make sure always to have max people ready in the Resting section at all
times, because you
need to swap them with the injured crew to get the stuff working again. To
do this, you
need to issue the order “Report to”, after it, the ship
management panel will appear and
you can adjust the crew layout just as you do normally. This will consume a
turn, but will
allow you to get the ship weapons and helm working again. It is always
better to spend a
turn doing this than firing less cannons.
-=What to do in case of emergency damage=-
Leave it be, you will only lose 10% of your total resources on ship, and
that is nothing
since food, drink and other supplies have very low cost.
This is bad but you can ignore it as long as you finish the battle in less
than 4 turns,
because after 4 turns your ship will
sink no matter what. If you need to repair, move half
of the Deckhands and half of the Resting crew to fix this using the
“Report To” order.
This way you will still have a decent number of deckhands doing the job and
some reserve crew.
Mostly you can ignore it unless you are very low on Health, which almost
never happens if
you follow this strategy anyway. To fix this it’s the same as
