Pillars of Eternity Wiki

In response to patch v1. to Pillars of Eternity (June 6, 2024), the random loot tables shown on the wiki have been updated. These changes may take time to propegate.

As a result, random loot data is no longer accurate to old versions of the game, including all console ports. We'll be working to provide a mechanism to switch between pre-patch and post-patch loot for console players.

Attributes in Avowed are a set of 6 stats that represent a particular aspect of a character, and have a significant impact on their capabilities in combat. Attributes also serve a role during conversations and interactions, where they are checked to unlock or trigger unique dialogue options.

All attributes start at 0, and reach a maximum value of 10. Each attribute is given a base value of 1 or 2, which varies depending on choices made during character creation. Attributes may be improved as the character levels up, or by wearing equipment that grants bonuses to specific attributes.

The player may choose to spend an amount of copper skeyts Copper skeyts to respec their attributes at any time, which refunds all points and resets attributes to their base value.
