newbie needs help with well rounded druid build in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted June 27, 2020 draego - did not know that armor bonuses did not count while you shift. is it just body armor or anything you wear - gloves , ring , etc. What about potions or edible you consume before shifting Boereor does seem to be quite knowledgeable about the game ( and so do you ) I will follow his advice and go with the boar I am hoping to restart this weekend. I expect the beginning will be more difficult as i learn the mechanics of the game using a full party. Even though i have played all the infinity engine games ( that was around 20 years ago ) this seems so much harder. It has been a very long time since i played a real time with pause game. I recall really liking it a lot in those games so will have to see how it goes.
