Pillars of Eternity II – Best Class

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire sees the return of the eleven classes from the first game in the series, but with the new option to multiclass. Multiclassing lets you select any two of the eleven classes, giving 55 additional combinations, each with a unique name. Multiclassing gives the character access to abilities from both classes. However, the character will gain a power level in each class every 3 levels instead of every 2 levels. This means their abilities will be weaker, and they will have to wait until a higher character level to acquire most abilities. Additionally, a multiclass character will never get access to end-game abilities that require power level 8 or 9.

Ranking of the classes may involve consideration for using or avoiding specific sub-classes.
