Divinity Wiki

Shocking Touch is a Aerotheurge skill in Divinity: Original Sin and Divinity: Original Sin II.


A short range shock attack that has the potential to stun the target. Unlike Lightning Bolt, it cannot be directly applied to surfaces, however it can cause surfaces below a physical target to become electrified.

Original Sin[]

Shocking Touch can be utilised with a single point in the Aerotheurge skill tree to any target within a 3m range; however, the Far Out Man talent extends this range. In the classic version, there is a 100% chance to set stunned, this is reduced in the enhanced edition to 80%. Targets with the Wet effect have a 30% increase in the chance to be stunned. The stun change is reduced by the target's Willpower.

Original Sin 2[]

Shocking Touch's stun chance has been restored to 100%, but unlike the previous game, it will be unable to stun the target if the target has any Magic Armour after the attack has been unleashed.



Following table shows all NPCs who are guaranteed to sell hydrosophist spellbooks, with their location and coordinates in the right column, from them. The location shown in the table (and the coordinates) are only for the initial location the NPC is in. Note that some of these may have other spell/skillbooks and goods to sell. Almira may follow the Godwoken on Lady Vengeance if her demands are met. Also note that Lizard Dreamer requires a persuasion check to be passed in order to speak with him, otherwise he (and the whole encampment) will turn hostile.
