Pillars of Eternity Weapons

Players can place enchantments on a weapon to acquire their desired effect, hence creating a uniquely customized weapon. The weapons are not restricted to any Class or Race, but some weapons are better suited to certain classes.

Although weapons are primarily differentiated by certain attributes such as damage, attack speed and accuracy, each weapon contains some special properties which make it unique from other weapons.

Some weapons are found with built-in enchantments called mod. Mods tend to increase certain stats of a weapon, making it different from its standard variant.

Despite the fact that any character can use any weapon, there are certain specializations. Characters can specialize in one of many categories and receive advantages such as improved accuracy.

  • Adventurer: Pollaxe, Estoc, Flail, Wand, War Bow
  • Knight: Battle Axe, Sword, Morning Star, Crossbow, War Bow
  • Noble: Dagger, Rapier, Mace, Sceptre, Crossbow
  • Peasant: Hatchet, Spear, Quarterstaff, Hunting Bow, Blunderbuss
  • Ruffian: Sabre, Stiletto, Club, Pistol, Rod
  • Soldier: Great Sword, Pike, War Hammer, Arbalest, Arquebus

Similar to weapons, players can craft a range of enchantments and apply to their weapons. In order to craft an enchantment, a creature part, a plant/herb, and a gem are required.
