Divinity Original Sin 2: Skill Crafting Combinations and Book Vendors

Want to beef up your character with new spells in Divinity: Original Sin 2? You need to know where to find the skill book vendors and how to craft your own books on the fly!

While there are 14 different starting classes in Divinity: Original Sin 2your build is more determined by which skills you learn than by what class or origin you picked during character creation.

In addition to racial, weapon, and Source skills, the 10 main skill types are broken down into the Aerothurge, Geomancer, Huntsman, Hydrosophist, Necrommancer, Polymorph, Pyrokinetic, Scoundrel, Summoning, and Warfare categories.

The wide range of skill combinations makes for a huge number of build types (which we'll be covering more in-depth soon in our character creation guide). For now, you need to know how to get new skills, either by buying books or crafting your own.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Skill Book Vendors

Right now we only know the locations of Act I vendors, but check back soon for updates on the vendors in the other parts of the game.

Note that you can actually kill the skill book vendors (or get them killed in certain quest lines) and leave yourself out of luck on the skill front until you head to a different area with a new vendor. The Red Prince, for instance, has dialog options that lead to a lethal fight with Warfare skill book vendor Kalias.

  • Aerothurge - Gawin (Fort Joy Ghetto)
  • Geomancer - Maol (Fort Joy Ghetto)
  • Huntsman - Bahara (Sanctuary of Amadia) 
  • Hydrosophist - Rezik (Fort Joy Ghetto)
  • Necromancer - Mona (Fort Joy Ghetto)
  • Polymorph - Doctor Leste (Fort Joy Ghetto)
  • Pyrokinetic - Stingtail (Beach outside Fort Joy)
  • Scoundrel - Hilde (Fort Joy Ghetto)
  • Summoning - Nebora (Tent near western gate of Fort Joy Ghetto)
  • Warfare - Kalias (Caverns outside Fort Joy)

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Skill Crafting Combinations

While many skills are gained by buying books at different vendors (or found during the course of the game), you can actually directly craft your own skill books. Crafting these skills can make them available earlier than normal, or in some cases is the only reliable way to get the skill in question.

You just need the appropriate scroll and a book corresponding to the appropriate skill type. Obviously in many cases its better to have a permanent skill (assuming you have the Memory available to learn it) rather than just a single use scroll.
