It has been a while since I last left a blog post, (9 months.... ouch) but with today's news from Larian, it felt like a good time to give an update on all things Divinity.
Of all the games in the series, Original Sin 2 has no doubt had the most spin off content. Beginning with the Divine Ascension DLC release, followed by gift bags (Larian endorsed mods, not really spin off content, but worth mentioning) then the board game, we now have the Godwoken graphic novel that was announced today, in standard and collectors edition for €/$22.99 and €/$59.99 respectively. This book looks into the pre game history of each of the Godwoken. On top of this, there is yet another gift bag that has been released today for Original Sin 2.
Fandom staff approa…
Good day readers.
As you have noticed, activity dropped this week from an editorial perspective. After spending 25 hours heading home between Monday and Tuesday, I'm sure you can appreciate I'm a little worn out.
This week as said above hasn't been too busy. Now I'm home though Dakiatte has seen some action, moving Divinity II articles from the old default titles into game specific articles. Why are we doing this? The simple answer is that with so many games, we need to make it easier to see where the game specific articles are. Divinity II's content, as great as it is will have less visibility in the search, so by moving it to a game specific title (such as Divinity II books and notes, it makes it clear that this relates to content for this…
*Cough* *cough* is this bard working?
Bad fantasy microphones jokes aside, welcome to the first news post on Divinity Wiki since *checks* 2015! Whew, its been a long time since anyone made one of these.
I imagine most readers who come here have no idea who I am. As my user name goes, I am Sakaratte, also known as the (King) Catmin, or if you ever visit our Discord, I also go by Arhu, because he polymorphs into a cat. I'm sure you can see a pattern emerging here. My first game in the series was Divine Divinity, which I first played back in 2003/2004. I discovered this wiki back in 2017, when looking at the RPG games footer on the Fallout wiki back as a patroller there. That was when I realised there is a whole freaking series of games and prompt…
- It takes place after Divinity 2. I'm already quite angry that DOS2 took place after Divinity 2, because it means that the only canonical way to end it is surrendering to Lucian.
- It fixes how Divinity 2 crapped over all the nonhuman races.
- Imps and Orcs are playable, along with undead versions of them.
- At last the final defeat of Damian. Oh, and make Damian a compelling villain, not the moron from Divinity 2.
- 1 word, 8 letters: Bellegar.
- 1 word, 6 letters: Zixzax
- An encounter with the God-King, and references to DOS2, for example Lucian's true colours and the Godwoken.
- An awesome Game Master mode, improved upon the one from DOS2.
- Less humanocentrism, or whatever it's called.
- Reuse the Divinity 2 Demon design. That's one thing I r…
Anyway, for starters I'd like to report that the Add more information at the bottom of the infobox does nothing. Do you have any idea why or what it is supposed to do?
I'm going with it was planned as a way to add extra fields to the templates but the host never finished it. Unlikely to as they're planning to take visual editor away.
ok, for the layouts, could we add the no include tags only for stubs and categories? That way the infobox and the rest of the staff would be visible to the user.
You mean includeonly? No reason why we can't treat is and see it pulls through.
Could we add a rename template so that if someone thinks an article should be renamed they could note it ?
Can do. Th…
So I'll worry out layout designs when I'm home. Let's start with infoboxes
is that the start of the meeting?
Yeah let's go lol
Should have called it to an open.
ok, for the infoboxes we have capitalization and an edit for books/manuscript show that they have previous and next fields
For previous and next, what are you thinking usage wise?
prequel and sequel
if they have one of couse
Works for me. I'd just been collecting on one page.
It doesn't look the nicest tbh.
Each one to a page with a previous and next would work better.
Should we put all parts of a series of books in one article?
Web can look to add a see also at the bottom if people want to skip along.

This build will go in depth on one of the most powerful builds in DoS:2 as of 11/6/2016. I will do my best to update the page and keep it in line with new balancing patches. On to the build!
When it comes to the starting race the ones I most recommend are in order of best to worst: Elf, Dwarf, Human, Lizard.
Elves have one of the best racial abilities in my opinion. Getting one extra AP AND then +25% extra damage for 3 turns all for -X Constitution is a good tradeoff for this build. This build can normally clear the entirety of the people you're fighting within a turn or t…
It’s time for the first update of 2015!
In addition to a number of bug fixes (thank you for all your feedback!), we’ve gone through all of the encounters in the game and made a ton of balancing changes that we think will make combat even more fun. We’ve also activated the Steam Cloud saves, and we have good news! PC & Mac savegames are compatible. For the modders out there, we can finally release the exporters that will allow you to import your own models and animations into the game.
Here’s the list of the most important changes and a few important remarks about Cloud saving:
When you enable cloud for Divinity: Original Sin, you will see your cloud quota in the save/load screens. Only new savegames will be uploaded to the cloud …
- Fixed start of fight conditions for Witch Cabin fight with Immaculate Mage
- Fixed Arrest scenes in Cyseal (mortician for example), while using a forbidden door during arrest sequence
- Fixed issue with Watcher/imps quest not completing
- Fixed companion dialogues when they were being triggered at the same time in multi-player
- Fixed issue with performing crimes when the guards are already talking to another player
- Fixed dialogue issue with Zixzax in Luculla forest (Homestead attack warning)
- Added reactions when characters are blinded
- Prevent start listening when already in a dialogue
- Fixed issue where sheathe/unsheathe state could get out of sync
- You can listen to NPC's too now, instead of only player characters
- Added option to turn off ca…
"If you see any update flash by today, we fixed two missing dialogs for French, Russian and German. We also removed "zero width space" characters from all text in the game because our font does not support it and would show a square"
For the recent Mac OS update 10.9.5, we have released a hotfix that solves signature issues.
We seized this opportunity to also fix the combat log disappearing for some of you, and fix jumping journal entries.
If you load a savegame in which the combat log was gone, you may have to drag it above the skillbar to be able to resize it again.
On the Mac version, the GodRays effect was distorted and this was fixed as well.
Divinity: Original Sin is a hit, having already sold more than 500,000 units, and while that obviously doesn't put it in the league of Call of Duty it's quite an achievement for an unapologetically old-school, PC-exclusive isometric RPG from Belgium. Even so, the work isn't done yet: The latest update to the game adds makes significant changes to the dialog system and adds two brand-new companion characters.
There are plenty of bug fixes in the new update, the full list of which you can catch over at Steam, but the biggest change (aside from the new NPCs) is the addition of "listening functionality," which allows players to listen to dialogs between characters, and records a full log of what's being said, in case anything is missed. Some tw…
- Added listening functionality to dialogs. Now you can listen to ongoing dialogs and see the complete history to better follow what is being said.
- Fixed issue with logging for cooperative dialogs
- A lot of fixes for savegames that refused to load
- Sheath/Unsheath fixed timing of attachment of shields.
- Rare crash fix in specific script calls
- Rare crash fix in extinguish surface action
- Fading objects and fog triggers now work for all players instead of just the local player.
- Fixed issue where rotation on objects could get corrupted, resulting in huge objects
- Bugfix in character movement while mouse is pressed
- Fixed some UI's that were always loaded in memory. Now they are loaded when needed.
- Fixed issue when swapping character during a rock-paper-sc…
Currently, working on a project to update the appearance of Divinity Wikia. If anyone has any questions or suggestions, feel free to post on my talk page or comment below.
- HP Bug on loading
- Changes to resistance cap (80% Resistance Gear Cap) that were supposed to be in the patch but did not make it in (zombie talent fix, can go over cap with potions and temporary effects)
This update mostly brings some overdue fixes on the code and balancing side of things, although there are some small improvements to UI as well. Several story and ganeplay fixes have also been incorporated.
We've also done some re-balancing in the Dark Forrest area, which should hopefully make things a little more difficult.
You can check out the full changelist below:
- Leech only works in your turn
- Rotation corruption fix in savegames
- Unique object fix
- Allow resurrect skills when vision is blocked
- Added level names to localization
- Added combination stats to loca parser

The Divinity Engine:

- Fix for corrupted packed files
- Fixed the modding menu

- Several rare crash fixes
- Fix for newly introduced save/load issues (Mac)
- Fix for crashing on saving (Windows)
The first official Divinity: Original Sin patch has been released, boasting a litany of fixes and changes that's far too long to get into here. More significantly, it also introduces "AI personalities," a big update to how your characters interact that Larian Studios boss Swen Vincke talked about in an interview earlier this month.
Even in single-player mode, Divinity: Original Sin features two protagonists, and it's not a situation where one character is "you" and the other is a mule. They're equals, and they'll sometimes disagree, and it all sounds a bit weird because you're effectively arguing with yourself; but the new patch promises to give those arguments a little more flavor, because your AI counterpart will now actually have a perso…

Patch Notes v1.0.53 (Jul 4, 2014)
- Fix for wrong alignments (this should also fix existing save
games). This for instance solves the problems with the bone totem

About the Global Chat: We switched it off for now as there was just a bit too much profanity and insulting, and while we have good hopes that it may get better if people read this this, we'll also install some proper moderation tools & processes. Once that's done, we'll switch it on again.
Note for 32 bit users: The problems you can experience are related to the game running out of memory which can be remedied by lowering the quality settings. We are working on optimising memory usage and will soon have a number of fixes for this. Until then, we recommend setting your texture qu…

- Fixed: Crashes on saving
- Fixed: Dialogs locking up when talking to certain npcs with two players
- Fixed: Extremely big pool of blood
- Fixed: Cloud artifacts
- Fixed: Crash during unlearning active skills
- Fixed: Steam cloud saving (the Steam from Valve that is, the Steam cloud in game was already working :)

- Fixed: Corruption caused by video playback on Mac
Could i get help with this?
That would be great plus it gives me some information on what happens and everything else. It could be an FAQ or a walkthrough because i don't know what is going on in this game. I just started the game, and i don't know what to do anymore.
