Combat Abilities in Divinity Original Sin 2 are listed here. These abilities represent the character's prowess in a given field. They increase the character's damage with weapons or elemental magic, provide defensive bonuses, and/or allow them to learn more combat skills. Characters start with 2 points and gain one point each time they level up. If you pick the All Skilled Up talent, you'll immediately receive a single extra point to spend. If you pick the Lone Wolf  talent, the value of your combat ability points will double so long as your party has two or less members. No skill can be raised above the base value of 10 upon level up, although you can boost abilities above 10 with bonuses from equipment.
