Classes available in Divinity Original Sin 2 will be shown below. When starting the game, the player will create a character with different Origin and type. During this customization, many aspects of the classes can be altered - both gameplay choices (Attributes, Abilities, etc) and cosmetic choices (gender, skin color, hair style, portrait icon, etc). All characters start with 10 points in each Attribute. Each character gets 3 more Attribute points, 2 Combat Ability points, 1 Civic Ability Point and 1 Talent point to spend as they see fit.
Choosing a particular class affects the starting gear and items a player has. In Divinity Original Sin 2, your class/origin in particular also affects your gameplay. Your background has varying consequences. While the extent of these consequences remains to be seen, it is evident from this video that it will affect dialogue choices and quests
