Carnage is a passive Barbarian ability in Pillars of Eternity.

The barbarian's attacks become so forceful as to impact others around the target enemy. For every successful melee attack, the barbarian makes reduced-damage attacks at all other enemies within a short distance of the target.

Effect[edit | edit source]

The barbarian makes attacks against enemies in a 1.5 meters radius around the primary target. These attacks have their accuracy reduced by 10, and also deal reduced damage.

Advice[edit | edit source]

  • Carnage's radius is affected by Intellect.
  • Like all class abilities in Pillars of Eternity, Carnage attacks will gain an additional +1 accuracy per level on top of the standard +3 accuracy per level.
  • At level 10, the -10 accuracy malus to Carnage will have been cancelled out by the +1 passive bonus to accuracy from abilities.
  • At level 16 and with the Barbarian Class Talent Accurate Carnage, Carnage Attacks will be carried out with +11 accuracy vs. attacks to the original target. The damage malus is unaffected by additional levels and will remain at -34% of base.
