This page lists and explains the difficulty modes in the game Divinity: Original Sin 2:


The difficulty Levels will affect how hard or easy it is to beat the game.

Difficulty Level affects the following:

  • Player HP
  • Player Chance to Hit
  • Enemy Chance to Hit
  • Enemy Spell List


  • Explorer Mode: This is an easy level for those who want to focus on exploring rather than combat. Players gets increased HP and higher accuracy while NPCs get less HP and have a penalty on their chance to hit the player. Also, normal (non-boss) creatures do not possess any crowd control spells. For more info see: Explorer Mode.
  • Classic Mode: This is the normal level that is meant to challenge the player. Player has a small boost to HP while creatures get no penalties and have all their regular spells, including crowd control spells.
  • Tactician Mode: This is the HARD level. Monsters will be stronger and smarter.
  • Honour Mode: Honour Mode is like Tactician Mode but you are limited to one save, which will be ERASED if your entire party dies.
