Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire crew members
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire features a large number of crew members who are necessary for the operation of The Defiant. Each crew member has a distinct race, personality, and several job traits that increase with experience. To place a new sailor on the ship, you must be in a port. Click an available sailor from the Known Sailors section and move them to an open role on the ship. Note that each sailor has different talents. Not all sailors will be well-suited for a given job. Filter through the Known Sailor job types to see who excels at each role.
Your crew consumes both food and drink while adventuring. The type of food and drink you feed them will adjust their morale. More expensive provisions make them happier. Cheap food and drink will lower their morale over time.
Few things will impact your crew's morale as badly as letting them starve. A starving crew with low morale may mutiny. If neglected for long enough, some may even die. Every crew member needs food, water, and money to support. Normally, each crew member consumes one unit of food and water per day, and one copper piece per trait and +1 per trait level above 1.
Jobs[edit | edit source]
There are several jobs on the ship that the crew needs to fill while sailing. Every ship needs deckhands, cannoneers, and a helmsman and all ships benefit from having a cook, surgeon, and navigator onboard. The larger ships even require a boatswain to keep the deckhands in order.
- Boatswain: The boatswain counts as a deckhand, but is more important for their ability to accelerate the completion of special events (such as putting out a deck fire) on the ship by coordinating their actions.
- Helmsman: A helmsman is required for turning and jibe actions in ship-to-ship combat. More experienced helmsmen make the ship harder to hit after performing turn and jibe actions.
- Navigator: The navigator increases speed on the World Map.
- Cannoneer: Cannons cannot fire without a cannoneer assigned to them. The more experienced a cannoneer, the more accurate their fire.
- Surgeon: The surgeon increases the rate of healing for injured crew members in Reserve, both in combat and while traveling.
- Cook: Reduces food consumption while traveling.
- Deckhand: Deckhands are required to perform any maneuvers in ship-to-ship combat. If a ship does not have enough deckhands, it will move more slowly on the World Map. The more skilled deckhands a ship has, the faster it will move in combat.
Each job can have five proficiency levels (technically six, as each crew member can also be Unskilled):
However, since a crewman can only earn four ranks overall, they top-out at Master level. Furthermore, once they have four ranks (in any combination), they cannot level up anymore. As such, picking specialists is usually the optimal choice.
In scripted interactions involving your crew, your crew's skill in a certain job can be tested. For jobs with more than one slot (for example, Deckhand or Cannoneer) the check will be the sum of the proficiency level of that job for the crew members assigned to that slot, otherwise it is simply the proficiency level of the single crew member in the assigned slot.

- Cianca/Giani/Rall all have subpar stats (all set at 10, the rest of the crew have 15 more total stat points usually 3 13's and 3 12's, Birta has great stats and starts at level 9, Audr starts at level 14 - might add a level column later).
- Does anyone know if this equipment will scale to their level (go from normal to fine to exceptional etc) or whether it will stay the same?
- Worthless Idiot has a primary ranged attack (dual) and a secondary claw attack (dual).
- Need to find a couple of crew to complete them
