Biting Whip is an ability in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Causes the cipher's weapons to generate a field of parasitic energy that lashes out at the target, increasing Damage inflicted and generating Focus for the cipher.

(Ascendant) - Soul Whip does not turn off at Max Focus and provides more bonus damage when at Max Focus.

(Biting Whip) - The cipher's Soul Whip bites deeper, granting a greater bonus to Damage.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Self: +20% Damage with weapons, +50% Focus Gain (0.75 Focus per point of damage dealt to enemies), Soul Whip no does not turn off at max Focus.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the description, Ascendant's Soul Whip / Biting Whip does not provide "more" bonus damage while at max Focus. The damage bonus is retained while at max Focus, as opposed to the regular Soul Whip where it is removed.
