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.

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:
See Attribute#Allocation for more explanation.

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.
