Effect[edit | edit source]
Advice[edit | edit source]
- While Brute Force is situationally useful such as when the Barbarian is trying to break through a Wizard's Arcane Veil, Fortitude and Deflection are usually enemies' highest defences in Pillars of Eternity.
- In terms of numbers, Fortitude is also the defence that tends to be reduced the least by Afflictions (-20 from Weakened, -2 per point of Might and Constitution reduced), whereas Deflection can be reduced much more (-40 from Paralyzed, Unconscious, Petrified or -30 from Stunned, -1 per point of enemy resolve reduced).
