Constitution

From Pillars of Eternity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Constitution (CON, Attribute Constitution.png) is one of the primary attributes in Pillars of Eternity and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Constitution is a combination of the character's overall health and endurance. Although it is not used much in interactions, it is sometimes checked to withstand pain or endure a physically taxing ordeal. In combat, it affects maximum Health and Endurance (just Health in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire) and contributes to the Fortitude defense.

Combat[edit | edit source]

Per point of Constitution above/below 10, a character gains:

See Attribute#Combat for more explanation on how bonuses are calculated and applied.

Dialog and scripted interactions[edit | edit source]

In conversations, the protagonist's Constitution is checked in rare circumstances for holding one's liquor etc.

In scripted interactions, any party member's Constitution may be checked to determine success at actions that require stamina and perseverance.

See Uses of Constitution in interactions for a detailed list.

Allocation[edit | edit source]

A player character's Constitution score is allocated during character creation, and does not progress with levels. By default you may put between 3 and 18 points in it, but the character's race and culture can modify those limits - for example for a Dwarf from Rauatai, it would be between 5 and 20:

Racial bonuses:
Dwarf +1
Cultural bonuses:
Rauatai +1

See Attribute#Allocation for more explanation.

Buffs in Pillars of Eternity[edit | edit source]

There are various ways to (temporarily) increase a character's Constitution beyond their base score. These buffs are not restricted to the upper limit that is imposed during character creation - so a temporary score of 30 or more is not impossible.

Buffs in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire[edit | edit source]

Most constitution buffs are applied via one of the three Constitution Inspirations; Fit, Hardy, and Robust. Stacking rules apply depending on whether the effect is passive or active. Generally, all passives stack - but actives do not and will instead use the highest bonus. In the case of inspirations, a Tier 1 inspiration will always be superseded by a Tier 2 one of the same type, and so on.
