Bluff is a passive skill in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.


Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

All but the most honest adventurers find it useful to stretch the truth on occasion. Unscrupulous denial, feigned ignorance, gross exaggeration, and bald-faced lying are all covered by this skill.


As with other passive skills, Bluff is only used during conversations and scripted interactions, and otherwise has no effect on gameplay or combat mechanics whatsoever.
