Fighter Stances


Cast Time: Instant
Noise: Quiet 
The fighter trains in the ability to adopt specialized fighting stances. Each stance excels at handling a different aspect of combat. Defender Stance is apt for holding fast against groups of enemies, Cleaving Stance is effective when attacking several enemies at once, while Warrior Stance is best for standing toe-to-toe against a single enemy.

Fighter Stances is a group of modal Fighter Abilities in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire.  Abilities are usually class-specific, and players may opt to make a Multiclass character in order to pick from a mixture of two different ability trees. However, rarely some Abilities can be found in 2 or more Classes.
