Finishing Blow is a Rogue ability in Pillars of Eternity.


Description[edit | edit source]

The rogue looks to finish off an injured opponent with a precise, deadly strike that increases in damage the less Endurance the target has.

Exact damage calculation[edit | edit source]

Because of its vague description, it is hard to find out how exactly the ability bonus works.

The exact formula for calculating the damage bonus is:

Damage Bonus = 50% + (3% per each % below 50% Endurance)

So an enemy with 25% of their Endurance left will be hit for 2.25 × base damage (i.e., 125% bonus damage).


The Devastating Blow talent further increases this bonus by an additional 2% of Endurance lost by changing the formula to

Damage Bonus = 50% + (5% per each % below 50% Endurance)
