The 'Changes for Balance' Thread in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted June 12, 2018 · Edited June 12, 2018 by Yenkaz Look, I took down the late dragon with one empowered level 9 spell on hard and I coasted through the game after having found veteran in POE to be quite a challenge. Meanwhile in this game I only ever struggled against the damned fampyrs and their charms. If anything the weapons of POE2 are more powerful than the ones in POE were. +15% action speed, for instance, is *huge*. The game was too damn easy.
