General Tips



Divinity: Original Sin channels the spirit of old classic RPGs and in turn presents a fantastic experience. It also channels the difficulty of old RPGs and does little to hold the player's hand. Thus, the opening hours of the game can be especially challenging, but these tips should help newcomers to the world of Divinity.

  • Pick a couple of main stats to increase along your playthrough. Levels don't come often in Original Sin, so spreading the wealth is not the best option.
  • Focus on variety in your party, and try to include one wizard.
  • The Loremaster ability is important because it allows you to identify items. Put at least one point into the ability.
  • There's a shovel near the first battle with the orcs in the game (on the beach). Pick it up and bring it with you - you'll need it.
  • The Pet Pal talent allows you to talk to animals, and they often have insightful things to say. It's a talent worth investing in.
  • Complete side quests. This may sound obvious, but experience is needed in the opening hours before you venture into new territory. Complete a lot of the early side quests to level up a bit.
  • You need multiple ability points to level up a single ability past level one. So if you want a level two ability, you need two points.
  • Elements play a huge role in combat. See the ground covered in fire? Use some kind of water spell to clear the field. Combine fire and poison to create explosions. Try out a series of combinations to see what works best.
  • Pay attention to weapon durability, and keep a repair hammer at the ready if you have the requisite crafting skill.
  • Steal paintings, sell them to merchants for a lot of gold, repeat.
