Survival Skill - Suggestions for Improvements in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted May 17, 2015 The Skills basically have no bearing on the game play. Besides Endurance just so you don't have fatigue all the time. if you left everything elase at Zero the game would play exactly the same way. There would be very little difference. Skills are a great idea but they really need to be expanded on. They should be as important as abilities/talents since you get them when you level up. If they aren't that important why are they in the game?
