Following is a list of attribute and skill boosts that can be acquired in Pillars of Eternity post-character creation.

An important feature of the game system is that bonuses from the same source generally do not stack: only the the highest bonus from a category counts, while the lower ones are "suppressed" and appear greyed out in the character tab. Thus, a character can have only one active bonus from each of following categories at any time: worn items, food (for attributes only), rites (for skills only), resting, boons, and special talents rewarded for completing quests.


Items Edit

Most armor pieces can be enchanted with an additional +1 or +2 bonus to any attribute. See Crafting#Armor
