Spells are magical abilities that may be tied to a character's class or certain items. There are variety of spell types:

Pillars of Eternity[]

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire[]


  • Powers – spells used by a cipher.
  • Invocations – spell-like abilities used by a chanter.
  • Scroll – Scrolls can contain spells, but are destroyed in the casting process.
  • Spellbind – A specific spell can be bound to an item – such as weapons, armor, clothing and accessories –, allowing the wearer of the equipped item to cast the spell a certain number of times per rest. The casting uses can be recharged by resting.
  • Spell Holding – Items also can "hold" a spell, that automatically goes off when the wearer of the equipped item is hit with a Critical Hit.
  • Spell Striking – A variant of the former holding is "striking" for weapons, where the spell goes off automatically when the wielder of the weapon lands a Crit on a target himself (1/encounter).
