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.

Celestial Sapling Inn, in Twin Elms

Resting will restore characters to full Health and Endurance, remove Maimed, and other long-term afflictions (including injuries and fatigue), remove until-rest bonuses, and restore all per-rest abilities, spells, talents and item charges[1] and is the only way to do so.

The party can only rest at safe locations, and not during combat. You can choose to rest outdoors or at inns, which are found in certain urban locations or at Brighthollow, your stronghold manor, both of which offer long-term bonuses. Resting always takes 8 hours.

Similar to resting, in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire you may also choose to Wait, which is a way to advance time without resting. Waiting may be necessary to progress certain quests with time, to access locations only open at certain times of the day, or to talk to characters who aren't available day and night. Unlike resting, you may wait anywhere. Waiting is not available in Pillars of Eternity, though you may instead pass the time by moving between locations.

Resting outdoors[ | ]

To rest outdoors, all you need to do is press the "Camp" button in the toolbar. The game checks to make sure it's okay to camp in that location at that time and will give you the option to access your Stash or go directly into rest.[2] Generally the party may only camp in unpopulared wilderness locations. While resting in the wilderness the party is safe from the surroundings, since there are no random encounters[1], but creatures may re-spawn in certain areas if you do so, however, this won't always be the case.[3]

Camping supplies icon

During your adventures you can choose to rest in outside by using your Camping Supplies to build your own campsite. Each time the party rests in the middle of nowhere, they consume 1 unit of Camping Supplies. The party is limited to carry a maximum amount of Camping Supplies based on the current difficulty setting (currently ranging from 6 to 2). The supplies are a single item type and can be purchased from vendors (also rarely can be found in the world). The supplies represent a party count, like wealth, and are represented by a number in the inventory and on the rest button in the main GUI.[2]

Difficulty Easy Normal Hard PotD Story Time

You can unlock the ability to choose a Camping Bonus when resting in the wild, granting the character your choice of one of six possible bonuses based on their Survival level. This bonus lasts until the next rest.

PE2 Resting

The resting interface in Deadfire

Press the "Rest or Wait" button in the toolbar to display the resting interface. Resting outdoors requires the use of any food or drink item. Party members can be given food individually by assigning an item to them in the resting interface. At least one character must be assigned a food or drink item to rest, and regardless of how many and which characters have food assigned, all characters will undergo a "rest" (but only those with food assigned will have injuries removed). Resting is the only way to "consume" food items, and grant whatever bonuses they give. To rest without granting a bonus, Hardtack or Water may be used.

In addition to outdoor areas, the party can rest while sailing on the world map, and also while on The Defiant's Abovedeck or Belowdecks.

Inns[ | ]

Resting at inns (including your stronghold once you acquire it) can grant additional bonuses. Based on the room you select at the inn, you will gain temporary bonuses that generally correlate to the expense of the room. I.e., more expensive rooms grant larger or more bonuses.

Spending the night with a courtesan (from The Salty Mast or The Wild Mare) does not count as a rest, it is instantaneous and consumes no time.

In Pillars of Eternity[ | ]

  • These bonuses last for a specific number of non-bonus rests (camping, inn rest in a room without a bonus).
  • Only a single resting bonus can be active at a time, so you can't just chain-sleep for a collection of bonuses.
  • If you dismiss a party member, however briefly, their resting bonus disappears.

If you sleep at your stronghold (by interacting with the bed in the master bedroom of Brighthollow), you select from the bonuses you've unlocked from your upgrades. These tend to be less varied than those found at inns and you have to pay for the upgrades upfront, but after that it's effectively a free bonus of one specific type that lasts for a number of rests.[2] Other inns can give resting bonuses that you can't get with resting at your stronghold.[4]

  • All inn bonuses last until the character's next rest of any type, and they are not removed if they leave the party.
  • This means that inherantly only one inn-resting bonus may be active at once.
  • Engaging in the services of Aenalys, Rabyuna, Konstanten, or Ymir in The Wild Mare does not count as resting.

Some characters will allow you to rest by talking to them, typically after completing a quest. These rests give no bonuses, acting as if you rested using Camping Supplies.

In Pillars of Eternity

Forced rests[ | ]

There are several instances where the game forces the party to rest. This may be an issue for players who want to keep accumulated bonuses and "until rest" buffs, as they will be unknowingly cleared. In Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, the No Forced Rests mod can be used to remove these rests entirely.
