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.

The Watcher's own standard.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire features a variety of factions and the Watcher's choice of alliances and antagonists will have a marked effect on the result of the Hunt for Eothas.

Faction mechanics[ | ]

Your standing with the factions is determined by your reputation which is tracked on two axes: Positive and Negative. These determine how you are treated. Every point of positive reputation gives you a -5% discount at any faction store, and each rank can give you unique options in dialogue with faction affiliates. Most quests will also present you with a variety of outcomes which generate different reputation effects and benefits.
