The Hunt for Eothas[edit | edit source]

Following the destruction of Caed Nua by Eothas, who occupied the adra statue devoted to Maros Nua, the Watcher ends up with a maimed soul and a desperate need to find the god to save his soul and himself. However, they will find out more than they bargained with, as with their hunt for Thaos.

Quest experience[edit | edit source]

All quests grant a predetermined amount of experience spread across a series of objectives. This total amount has two multipliers applied to it - a per quest multiplier (always 1), and a global multiplier of 1.35.

Quests that do not have this "predetermined" amount instead calculate the granted XP using the quest's level and weighting - though currently there are very few quests that need to do this. For all quests that do not, there is no correlation between the quest's "XP level", "XP type" and the amount of experience gained. These values and any code that references them only exist as remnants from how experience was calculated in Pillars of Eternity.

The only quests that calculate their XP amount with their experience level and type are:

On quest completion, no additional experience is earned (other than that of the final "end state" objective), however if there are objectives that have not been completed, the party will be granted experience equal to the value of these remaining objectives.

Objective experience[edit | edit source]

Upon completion of a quest objective, the exact amount of experience gained is calculated using:

  • totalObjectiveWeight - The sum of the experience weights of all objectives in the quest, plus one for the end state. Most experience weights are 1, so this is commonly just the amount of objectives in the quest plus one.
  • objectiveWeight - The experience weight of the completed objective in question, which is used as a multiplier for the objective experience.
  • experienceAmount - The amount of experience granted by the quest. This refers to the ExperienceAmount in "global.gamedatabundle", and is shown on the wiki page as "Experience amount". Remember that this is then multiplied by a global "QuestXPMultiplier" of 1.35.

The objective experience is then:

xp = (experienceAmount / totalObjectiveWeight) * objectiveWeight
If a quest has 4 objectives with an experience weight of 1, completing any objective would grant a 1/5 of the total quest experience. Using the above formula, and a total quest experience of 1000 (including QuestXPMultiplier), each objective would grant a base 200 XP.
If one of the objectives has a higher weighting, it is granted more "portions" of objective experience, and the experience granted to other objectives is reduced to make up for the fact. Using the same example of 1000 total quest experience, and a weight of 3 for one of the objectives, the singular weighted objective would grant 428.571428571 XP (3 portions), and the others (and end state) would grant 142.857142857 XP each.

Upon quest completion, the end state XP is granted, and each party member will have earned the experienceAmount, not counting the below bonuses, which are applied on every experience gain.

Party size bonus[edit | edit source]

After this initial amount is determined, a party-size bonus is applied, which gives more experience the fewer characters there are in the party. A bonus of +25% experience is granted per missing party member under 5. The bonus is calculated with the formula: 0.25 * (5 - numPartyMembers).

Party size Bonus XP
5 -
4 +25%
3 +50%
2 +75%
1 +100%

Player–companion adjusted experience[edit | edit source]

The amount of experience given to each party member is adjusted individually based on the difference between the player and the companion's level (this adjustment is not applied to the player). The adjustment multiplier is calculated with:

((playerLevel - companionLevel) * 0.2) + 1

For example, if the player's level is 7, and the companion's is 5, the companion will be granted an additional 40% experience. Note that the difference between levels is limited to a range of -5 to 5.

Level difference Adjustment
0 -
±1 ±20%
±2 ±40%
±3 ±60%
±4 ±80%
±5 (and beyond) ±100%
