Resting bonuses stack with active abilities? in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Characters Builds, Strategies & the Unity Engine (Spoiler Warning!) Posted March 24 · Edited March 24 by Eddizel Well, I don't mind resting bonuses stacking with actives, in fact I think they should, only makes sense. But that screenshot of stacking all kinds of food buffs together, that is just some extreme cheese lol, I hope that doesn't exist anymore. Also I was going off thelee's gamefaq, which I thought was the bible pretty much for this game. I have read the permabuff no rest guide thread before. Just to be clear, we are not talking about stacking up all kinds of resting bonuses together (like alchemist pool, and inn/food, and luminous bath etc etc), we are talking about those buffs stacking with active inspiration/modal buffs in combat.
