A quick combat reference chart for Pillars of Eternity

How to use table:

  • Bookmark this page and reference it when fighting a certain monster or in advance when you know an area has certain monsters
  • The first column is the monster name, sorted alphabetically. Click on it to get more details on the monster.
  • The second column is the monster level. If it is a lot higher than your party's level, the fight will be very difficult and you should use only the recommended attacks.
  • The third column is the base Damage Reduction of a monster.
  • The next columns are the Damage Types.
  • If a damage type is listed as HIGH, than it is HIGHER than the monster's base damage resistance and you should AVOID using attacks that do that damage type since they are less effective.
  • If a damage type is listed as LOW, than it is LOWER than the monster's base damage resistance and you SHOULD USE attacks that do that damage type since they are more effective.
  • If there is no HIGH or LOW specified in that column, the base DR is used (3rd column). You can use those attacks if you don't have other ones.
  • The number in parentheses is the actual value. The further it is from the base DR, the more/less effective your attack will be.
  • The last two columns show the highest and lowest defense of that monster. Avoid targeting high defenses since it will result in lots of Miss and Graze. Targeting Low Defenses will result in Hits and more Crits. See: Attack Resolutions
  • Right click on your abilities or weapons to see what damage types they do and against which defenses.
  • EXAMPLE: When fighting a Swamp Spore, use weapons with Piercing Damage and spells that do Corrosive Damage. Avoid weapons that do Slashing Damage or spells that do Freezing Damage. Also, try to use attacks that target the Spore's Reflex rather than it's Fortitude.
