Source skills[]

Pure source skills[]

Pure source skills are skills that rely solely on the use of Source and do not rely on any combat abilities such as Hydrosophist for example. These skills in particular are abhorred by the Magisters and using them in their vicinity may draw their ire. Following table shows all pure Source skills which the Godwoken may learn during their travels through Rivellon.

Icon Name Effect Ability SP Cost
Bless (Original Sin 2) Bless Bless your target or self. Sourcery 1
Curse (Original Sin 2) Curse Curse your target. Sourcery 0
Source vampirism Source Vampirism Drain Source from your target in order to gain Source Point and destroy a spirit. Sourcery 0
Spirit vision DoSII icon Spirit Vision Allows caster to perceive spirits. Sourcery 0

Mixed source skills[]

Mixed source skills are skills that rely on both source and prowess in combat abilities like Warfare. In order to use these one must have enough prowess in said ability and enough source at hand in order to use these. These skills more often than not are also harder to remember and therefore may cost more Memory Slots.

Special skills[]

Special skills are skills that have special criteria in order to be used. One such criteria are weapon skills which need corresponding weapon combination equipped in order to be learnt and used. Some skills are also exclusive to summoned creatures such as the Swap Places spell of the Black Cat.

This category specifically includes:

Origin Source skills
Racial skills
Weapon skills
NPC skills

Uncategorized and NPC skills[]

Skills in this category are skills that are used by NPCs and/or are accessed only in Game Master Mode. These skills are not meant to be used by the player characters, therefore some of these may lack additional information (such as images). Especially if said skill is not found in Game Master Mode but is being used by NPCs in game.
