Polymorph Skills in Divinity: Original Sin 2 are located on this page. Polymorphs are inspired by nature and their magic takes some of the best and worst aspects of other creatures and puts them to combat use. For example, you can grow wings and fly over surfaces, and then chain that with the Flight skill for longer distance flight. The Polymorph combat ability gives players one free Attribute Point to your avatar for every Ability Point invested. Compared to other schools, Polymorph has highest versatility and can be used to mixed alongside any other builds. On its own, Polymorph can provide skills with high impact for physical melee players or many tools to supportive players.

    • A lot of good skills to pick up if your warrior and looking to become the Swiss army knife of the battlefield and be able to aid anyone in your group, I've suggest taking a few points into Polymorphing to all my warrior friends. Wings give mobility, spider legs give CC and flay skin help set up your casters if you have any. If you decide against going full on warrior (KRONK SMASH) then strongly consider taking this up as a secondary skill line. The skin abilities get a lot of flak for being trash but I personally believe they can come in handy if you've got a AoE hungry Pyrokentic caster on your team and your in the middle of all the enemies and you just KNOW his next spell could hit you. Set it up and knock them down.

        If you are going to make a lone wolf character that only specializes in one skill this is the one to do it. Polymorph at high levels is absolutely busted. Not only do you get utility that no other branch does(For example, being able to spew oil, set it on fire, then walk around as a poison blob exploding everything and everyone in said oil you created before deciding "You know what, I'm going to teleport this fiery oil field across the screen at those guys") but you get a FREE attribute point for no good reason at all with each invested point. You get debuffs to completely neutralize enemies regardless of their physical/magic armor. You get crowd CC. Oh, and to top it off, you get to cast the majority of your powerful source skills FOR FREE once you have Apotheosis.

        And let's not talk about Forced Exchange. "Damn, these mobs managed to get me to 1 HP. Guess I'll just set that enemy to 1 HP and full heal myself."

          What stat does Polymorphing use? The Metamorph class starts with strength but is that what all skills are going to scale with?

          • Anonymous

            WTB master level skills for turning into a wolf (bonus melee dps) bear (bonus tanking) and cat (bonus to sneak).
