About this mod

This mod ports a few items from the first Pillars of Eternity to Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Permissions and credits
Even though MaxQuest's excellent Spoils of Caed Nua (which I heartily endorse) already did an excellent job of porting some of the coolest items from Pillars of Eternity to Deadfire, there were a few missing items that I wanted. I figured I'd make my own mod and get them.

* * NEW IN v2 * *
The Belt of the Royal Deadfire Cannoneer is now a soulbound item with the same properties it had in Pillars of Eternity.

  • I'm still figuring out how to make Flame Shield pop when the wearer is
  • critically hit. Until then, Flame Shield remains a 1/encounter spell the wearer may cast at their discretion.
  • The first unlock condition should be to take damage from ranged enemies, but it doesn't seem to be possible to discriminate between
  • ranged and melee in Deadfire. For now the unlock condition is to take damage from enemies regardless of whether melee or ranged.

Here's what's included:

Marked Amulet
- +3 Constitution
- Grants Martyr when Knocked Out (+30% Action Speed to allies within range.)

Ring of Thorns
- +3 Dexterity
- +5 Reflex
- Resistance to Might Afflictions

Gwyn's Band of Union
- +4 Intellect
- Grants Blessing 1/encounter
- Grants Instill Doubt when below 80% health (Dazed to enemies within range.)

Glittering Gauntlets
- +6 Deflection
- Apply Dazed on target when dealing or receiving a Critical Hit.

Belt of the Royal Deadfire Cannoneer
- +3 Might
- Grants Firebrand 3/rest
- Grants Torrent of Flames 1/rest

!! In v2 the Belt is now soulbound like in Pillars of Eternity !!

You may notice that I had to adapt some of the items to Deadfire:

  • Ring of Thorns swapped the +50 to All Defenses bonus when Prone or Stunned for a more sensible Resistance to Might Afflictions, which I think plays better with Deadfire's mechanics.
  • Glittering Gauntlets are now procc'ing just on Critical Hits rather than Hits and Crits because Dazed is a more powerful affliction in Deadfire than it was in Pillars of Eternity. Since in Pillars of Eternity the Cloak of Greater Defection gave a +10 bonus and the Gauntlets gave +9, by the same token in Deadfire—where the Cloak of Greater Deflection gives a +7 bonus—the Gauntlets give +6.
  • Belt of the Royal Deadfire Cannoneer is no longer soulbound, because I couldn't figure out how to implement the unlock conditions. I retained only three of its bonuses as it would have been too powerful if it offered the full set right off the bat. This is no longer the case in v2.

So where can you find these items once the mod is installed?

  • Marked Amulet is sold by the Aumaua in Delver's Row.
  • Ring of Thorns is sold by Dimesa at the Treasure's Trove in Dunnage.
  • Gwyn's Band of Union is sold at the Dark Cupboard.
  • Gilttering Gauntlets are sold by Captain Thaenic.
  • Belt of the Royal Deadfire Cannoneer is sold by the Orlan Peddler in the Brass Citadel.

Thanks and acknowledgements:
MaxQuest, for making the Spoils of Caed Nua mod that inspired mine (and greatly helped understanding the code and scripting required.)
Boeroer for giving me tips on where to find similar effects to those I needed so I could borrow the code and modify it to suit my needs.
BMac from Obsidian, for releasing the soulbound items' sketches from Pillars of Eternity and helping me decipher soulbind unlock conditions.

To install the mod, simply drop in your override folder. If you don't have one, create it within the Deadfire directory.
To uninstall, simply delete the mod's directory from the override folder.
