Attributes are the base stats of your characters in Divinity Original Sin 2. In that version, when you create a new character, you will start with 10 points into each attribute, and you will have 3 attribute points to allocate yourself, and then gain another attribute point whenever you level up.


Your Skills are affected by the Attributes. You need a minimum of ? points into the target skill's main attribute for it to be effective. Each point below this number makes the skill 10% less effective, and each point above it makes it 5% more powerful.
Each attribute will cap at 15 points - but you can surpass this by equipping gear with + Points.
