Classless Character Development
We have a truly classless system - players can select different presets during character creation or can fully customize stats, abilities, talents, and skills. Our new tag system unlocks dialog options, with NPCs and the world reacting to you based on your gender, race, profession, and origin story.
New Races and Origins
For the first time in a Divinity game, players can choose from five races: Human, Elf, Dwarf, Lizard and Undead. Divinity: Original Sin 2 also introduces origin stories: different backgrounds that players can choose for their characters, which will expand and evolve through the campaign.
10 Ability Schools
With more than 200 skills and spells available, we’ve doubled the number of options for players. The eight existing skills schools were reworked and we’ve added two more: Summoning and Metamorphosis. Turn your enemies into chickens, summon demonic Incarnates, grow wings and fly - and so much more!
Spellcrafting and Runecrafting
Customise and upgrade your unique character to your heart's content. Rune crafting allows you to use magical stones to modify your weapons and equipment, while skill crafting lets you combine existing skills together to create plenty of potent new ones. For example: combining any Fire skillbook with any Necromancy skillbook will yield a Corpse Explosion skillbook. Ka-BOOM!
