Divinity: Original Sin 2 Skill Book Combinations

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Skill Book Combinations

Most depictions of magic in popular fiction are not unlike depictions of science; while it may employ certain arcane rules and knowledge, at its core, it’s mostly just a matter of throwing concepts at the wall and seeing what sticks. Just like mixing two kinds of chemicals, mixing two elements of magic can yield fascinating (and deadly) results. Here’s a list of Skill Book combinations for Divinity: Original Sin 2.

In Divinity: Original Sin 2, you can combine Skill Books, books that bestow various magical and non-magical skills upon your character, together to create brand new skills. Any two Skill Books can be combined to create something new, though it should be noted that different skills will be created if one of the Skill Books you’re using is for a Source Skill, one that consumes Source Points when used.
