Types of Equipment Bonuses in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted September 24, 2012 Trying to figure out if an item would be better than what you already have can already be a troublesome affair. Having to consider stacking is even more troublesome if there's no fast and easy way to see all your current bonuses. Actually, having large bonuses that don't stack make this a lot easier. Are you wearing a strength item? Yes. What's the plus on it? +6. Well, this one is +7. Will I do more damage if I take off the +6 item and put on the +7 item? Yes. It's a very simple comparison. That works OKish under the presumption that most items only add one or two bonuses. With a wide spread and lots of bonuses comparing gets slower if you have to do everything manually. (...) But figuring out WHICH bonuses you have is really easy. Easy as in anyonone can do it; yes. But easy as in quick to do and easy to read, still requires proper UI elements. In most newer UIs you can get popups of all the items on your screen, but you will also have a lot of useless information (in regards to doing the task we're talking about) along with it and you have to manually cross-reference things.
