Top 15 Best Pillars of Eternity 2 Mods in 2021


Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is an absolute beast of a game to have mods at. It isn’t open-source, but the amount of things you can do in a game with mods is limitless. What I really like about Pillars of Eternity 2 is the way the gameplay feels like a better Baldur’s Gate.

Not to diss Baldur’s Gate, but there’s a lot more to it that Pillars of Eternity 2 fills in the gaps. With mods, Pillars of Eternity 2 shines even brighter than its regular gameplay. But don’t worry, the base version is already good. We just like to put some mods in between here and there.

Pillars of Eternity 2 mods - Bonus Ability Points on Level Up

Created by: middle of nowhere

With this mod, you can now get bonus ability points once you level up. Normally, you wouldn’t be able to do that. But this mod adds so much value as to why leveling up and going higher is the only way to go.

You can also choose how many points you’ll get, based on what you value as fair and outright cheating, even though modding itself is kinda like “cheating”.
