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

Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Through physical imposition, raw intensity, and overt threats, Intimidate allows a character to leave onlookers shaken and cowed. Though not everyone responds well to intimidation, it can be used as an effective tool of persuasion.

Usage[edit | edit source]

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