Skill Books in Divinity: Original Sin 2 are how the player acquires and learns new Skills. Players can purchase or find Skill Books as they progress the game, and can combine Scrolls with Blank Skill Books of their corresponding Schools in order to obtain that Skill Book. Players can even combine 2 Skill Books to create a brand new Skill. Below are a list of Skill Book Locations:

 

Skill Book Locations

All Skill book traders will recieve the next tier of skill books when the player reaches levels: 1, 4, 9, 13 (source skill), 16.

Blank Skillbooks can be purchased from most vendors that sell crafting ingredients, the earliest being Exter in Amadia's sanctuary. In Driftwood, there is Trader Bree, Ghangha in the Undertavern, and even the Advocate. In the Nameless Isle there is the Black Ring Alchemist and the Priestess of Duna. In Arx, Trader Keyren offers his services.

Geomancer Skill Books

Huntsman Skill Books







 Two new Infusion recipes, discovered through The Summoners' Lament, part 1 book that can be found as loot.
Blood Infusion- Combine any Summoning skill book with any Necromancy skill book.  Same effects as if you summoned your pet in blood to start with. Requires Necromancy and Summoning 1.
Oil Infusion- Combine any Summoning skill book with any Geomancer skill book AND an oil barrel.  Gives the pet the Fossil Strike skill.  Requires Summoning and Geomancy TWO, rather than the usual 1 and 1.  Effects tested as identical at Summoning 3 and 11 for both this and the Blood Infusion skills.

Crafted Skills

A total of 48 additional skills can be crafted by combining two skillbooks of different types. Elemental skills can only be combined with non-elemental skills to create new skills. Any skillbook can be used as a component; however, if one of the skillbooks is a source skill — a skill that requires the consumption of source points — then the outcome will be a different skill that also uses source. Having both components be source skills will not produce a different result than when only one source skill is used. Keep in mind that crafted skills require points in both of its components' Combat Abilities.

 

Skill Crafting Recipes

Skill Crafting in Divinity: Original Sin 2 allows the player to combine two different Skill Books and get a brand new Skill. For example if you combine a Necromancer Skill Book with a Fire Skill Book you will get the Skill: Corpse Explosion. Below is a list of all the Skills you can make via Skill Crafting.

The skill book needed for basic skill crafting needs to be a blank skill book, of the same variation as the scroll.

      Notwithstanding I have points in multiple schools of magic and injected books for those schools, It seems none of the newly learned skill books' from newly learned schools of magic are appearing on the skill page. Just skills from the initial 2 schools of magic. So is there a limitation somewhere that you are restricted to the initial 2 schools of magic?

        4 Summoner Skill books are missing on this page (possibly from Larian Crafter Kit gift bag or some patch in 2019 or 2020): Blood Infusion (summoner book + necro book), Cursed Blood Infusion (source summoner book + necro book OR summoner book + source necro book), Oil Infusion (summoner book + geo book + oil barrel) and Cursed Oil Infusion (summoner source book + geo book + oil barrel OR summoner book + source geo book + oil barrel OR source summoner + source geo + oil barrel). KEEP IN MIND NOT ALL SKILLBOOKS ARE VALID FOR THESE RECIPES! For example i could not make any of these using the Inner Demon source summoner book. Try with several different books from the adequate spell schools - it will work..

          Source Necromancy + Summoner books or Source Geomancer + Summoning + Oil barrel yield some results?
          Like the other elemental infusions which become a source versions of themselves?

            Thank you for such a valuable information. I've been looking for a solution to this problem for a long time and I finally found one. Really appreciate your reply!

                I looked for the recipes to craft Blank Skill Books on the internet but never found them. So far, i've discovered the recipes for crafting Blank Geomancy Book, Blank Pyrokinetics Book, Blank Hydrosophist Book, Blank Aerotheurge Book and Blank Polymorph Book. I've yet to discover the recipes for Necromancy, and the physical Skills (Scoundrels, Warfare and Huntsman, if they exist at all). First, you'll have to craft a Leather cover book by combining: Leather scrap + Leather scrap + Knife. This will be an ingredient for all Blank Skill Book recipes. You'll also need a quill (can be used only once) by combining Feather + Knife. Now... Blank Geomancy Skill Book: Leather cover + Distinctive Amadouvier + Quill Blank Pyrokinetics Skill Book: Leather cover + Disctinctive Boletus + Quill Blank Aerotheurge Skill Book: Leather cover + Disctintive Tea Herb + Quill Blank Hydrosophist Skill Book: Leather cover + Distinctive Faranghite + Quill Blank Polymorph Skill Book: Leather cover + Distinctive Whisperwood + Quill I suspect Necromancy may use the same recipe with a Trumpet of Death. Which i have yet to find (i'm at the end of act 1)

                  Hello, I'm a newby, so please bear with me. What happens to the older skill books at the vendor when the new ones get added? Are they replaced or just added to? I'm trying to figure out when will be the optimal time to pickpocket them. Should I steal the lower level skill books and then murder them to get the higher ones? Thanks, Corey

                    > All Skill book traders will recieve the next tier of skill books when the player reaches levels: 1, 4, 9, 13 (source skill), 16. This seems wrong. I am currently level 9 in Driftwood and while the traders don't have all skill builds they are selling some master tier and source skills.

                      So it doesn't seem possible to craft blank skill books like in the original, e.g. sheet of paper + elemental essence = black elemental scroll, then combine two blank scrolls to make a blank skill book of that element.
                      I tried combining a sheet of paper with an essence but nothing happens.

                        You can now get "high tier blank skillbooks" and the necromancy one is called "high tier witchery skillbook". I assume these allow you to craft skillbooks from higher skill level (3+) scrolls. It would be great if they could update this page to reflect that. I just crafted chain lightning and closed circuit.

                          Combining skill books of a specific type (eg Pyrokinetic Searing Daggers skillbook with Pyrokinetic Fireball scroll) does NOT yield a skill book of the scroll.

                          All of these refer to the use of BLANK skillbooks of the respective type of skill.
                          Someone correct these to clarify.

                            I found my first empty skillbook on the lady vengeance before getting attacked. I would assume you combine an elemental essence with paper to get a blank skillbook. Not sure but I'll give this a try.
