Divinity Original Sin 2 Skill Combos

We have listed some cool and useful Skill Combos here for you to try out and deal maximum damage to your enemies.

Skill Combo #1
Combine Necromancer with Retribution. When combined, Necromancer will heal 10% of your health while Retribution will return 10% damage. With this, you will be nearly impossible to kill but you will need necromancer abilities to deal damage.

Skill Combo #2
For this combo, you can combine Warfare, Polymorph, and Hydrosophist. With all these combined, you will become a great and strong damage dealer and you will be able to crowd control easily. Couple these skills with a Sword or an Axe and some heavy armor to look cool too. You will have a variety of attacks at your disposable with unique effects. However, with this build, you will require help from your teammates and you will be a melee fighter and will need to get up close and personal to deal damage.

Skill Combo #3
For this combo, you need to combine Aerotheurge, Hydrosophist, Pyrokinetic and Geomancer. With all these combined, you will have a very large variety of spells and abilities at your fingers. You will deal massive amounts of damage from a distance but you cannot take any damage. Avoid being hit with this Skill Combo if you do not want to die quickly. Use the range to your benefit.

Skill Combo #4
Combine Huntsman and Polymorph for this build. You can easily travel across the entire battlefield with this build. This build does high physical damage from a range and can escape very easily. However, melee attacks are deadly so avoid getting close to enemies.

Skill Combo #5
Combine Dagger and crossbow along with Huntsman, Scoundrel, and Necromancy for this ultimate build. Deal massive damage but avoid being hit. Use the daggers to keep the enemies at bay. Switching weapons also sets this build back as each time you switch, it will cost you 1 point.

Skill Combo #6
Combine Geomancy, Scoundrel and Summoning to have a really tough build infused with poison. With this build, you can poison enemies while also heal your teammates. You can use Staff, two daggers or a dagger and a wand with this build. This build is also highly maneuverable. However, keep a distance from melee enemies and undead opponents. They will make short work of you.

Skill Combo #7
This build is a tank. Combine Warfare, Hydrosophist, and Pyrokinetic. You can use a two-handed mace or a mace and a shield for maximum effect. Use your mace to break faces, combine it with fire to burn your enemies and use Hydrosophist ability to heal teammates. Deal damage and take damage with this build. Naturally, this build is slow and very hard to escape in tough situations. In addition, you will need points for skills and attributes.
