Source Skills (not to be confused with Sourcery Skills) in Divinity Original Sin 2 are a new type of skill that require Source Points to use. These skills are very powerful and have limited uses due to the scarcity of Source Points. Use these skills wisely to absolutely devastate your foes.

The first place to acquire source points is in the hidden cave/vault with the soul-jars; afterwards it can be obtained by stepping in green glossy puddles of Source or consuming spirits. To obtain source you must have already removed your collar. Using the skill will use up the source power.

How to acquire source point:

  1. In Divinity Original Sin 2, there are some areas covered with source water, let your characters stand on them and you will gain source points. For example, in first chapter, there is a pool of source water in The Hollow Marshes and another in Necromancer's Tower.
  2. Some skills can also grant you source points, such as Source Vampirism.
  3. Absorb souls from soul jars, you can find those soul jars in quest Withermoore's Soul Jar and The Cursed Ring
  4. Source fountains are renewable means of replenishing source points. They can be found in the Decrepit Ruins in Act I, under Meistr Siva's house in Act II, and in Arhu's prison in Act IV.

To increase the number of Source points you can hold (up to a maximum of three) players must seek out powerful Sourcerers for their aid as part of the Powerful Awakening quest.

      I know I haven't tried tactician mode yet, but as a solo lone wolf source skills make most fights too easy. The AoE damage source skills will straight up CC all the enemies hit or get them so low that I can kill them next turn. The buff/summon source skills turn the fights into easy mode. I'm not even using Apotheosis :-( It's probably just Lone Wolf making my solo character too strong but it still bugs me...
