Don’t want to resort to Divinity II Developer Mode but keep getting stuck due to the strong enemies, low levels, inadequate equipment, etc? In that case, you should check out the hints down below.
- Be willing to spend in-game cash to pick up items such as weapons and armor.
- At the early stage of the game when you have next to nothing, stick to a bow as it will let you take down hordes.
- It is wise to stock up on food instead of portions since they are cheaper. During combat, you can consume food to replenish your HP at will.
- Some quest items like rings and amulets prove essential in the late part of the game. Thus, do not sell quest items.
- Invest in skills like Lockpick, Mindread, and Wisdom.
- Always read books as they contain pieces of information that help you through quests.
- Don’t be afraid to purchase expensive mindreads as they are worth it. Usually, they allow you to play extra quests, provide passwords, spawn chests and earn different points.
- The righteous, moral and truthful quest paths are not necessarily the most beneficial/profitable.
- To maximize XP gains, only battle with enemies on the same level as you. Aside from that, make sure all enemies in a level have been defeated before proceeding further.
- Destroy every vessel you come across, such as barrel, crate, urn,… then retrieve valuable items such as levers, switches and pressure plates.
- Save up gold so that you can buy new weapons.
- Make at least two saves per level so in case you miss something, you may go back.
- The number of Malachite Gems in this game is limited and you need them late into the game. On the other hand, Malachite Ore is abundant and you shouldn’t mistake one for the other.
