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.

(Beguiler) - Soul Whip provides less bonus damage and generates less Focus if the cipher's target is not vulnerable to Sneak Attack.

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

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Self: +20% Damage with weapons, 0.25 Focus generated per point of weapon damage dealt to enemies (restored to +30% Damage and 0.5 Focus if attacking Sneak Attack vulnerable target).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A target is vulnerable to a Sneak Attack if they are currently Flanked, or are suffering from a Mind or Body Affliction.
  • The full bonus should apply if the target has a Mind Affliction, however it currently applies if the target has a Mind Inspiration instead (as of patch 5.0.0.0040 this has not been fixed).
