- 6 Helpful Tips for Pillars of Eternity
- Make sure you pause the game when you need to give out orders to multiple party members. This is a game of patience and strategy.
- You get more XP by exploring and finding new areas, so the game encourages players to be thorough.
- Make sure you bring camping items to rest on your journey. You won't always be near an inn.
- Some spells can only be used again after resting, so it creates another incentive to find an inn or set up camp.
- Be careful of friendly fire when using powerful spells. The game tells you if an attack will hit a party member, so pay close attention.
- Always put your stronger characters in the front, to protect mages and the like. The formation of your party can be the different between life and death.
