Scoundrel skills have access to the most Status Effects besides Witchcraft, but deal damage as they inflict them. With almost half of the skills requiring a dagger to be equipped, this is a skill tree best dipped into for Fast Track, Walk in Shadows, Cloak and Dagger and Charming Touch. Otherwise the damage is lower than the other physical abilities; often if a dagger is equipped for 2 AP to attack, attacking 4 times and using Daggers Drawn exactly equal.

Divinity: Original Sin[edit | edit source]

There are 3 abilities available in the Scoundrel tree, based on the skill level:

  • Level 1 - Back-Stabber: Allows a character to backstab with daggers and knives.
  • Level 2 - Swift Footed: Grants a 20% movement bonus.
  • Level 5 - Headstrong: Grants a 20% resistance bonus against being Frozen, Stunned, Petrified and Knocked Down.

Level 5 of Scoundrel is not required by any skill and only unlocks the talent "Headstrong" which makes the character more resistant to being immobilized.
