Constitution

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Constitution is one of the six basic stats of DDO.

Constitution (CON)

Constitution represents your Player Character’s health and stamina. A Constitution bonus increases a character’s hit points, so the ability is important for all classes.

You apply your character’s Constitution modifier to:

  • The number of Hit points you get each level.
  • Fortitude saving throws, for resisting poison and similar threats.
  • Concentration checks. Concentration is a skill, important to spell casters, that has Constitution as its key ability.
    • A monk's stable ki level is also equal to his or her total Concentration skill.

If a character’s Constitution score changes enough to alter his or her Constitution modifier, the character’s hit points also increase or decrease accordingly.

Raising Constitution Scores[edit]

You can raise your Constitution score from different sources, among them:

  • Base
    • During character creation, you can add up to 10 points to your basic Constitution score, which means:
    • At the 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th, 20th and 24th levels, you are allowed to raise a single ability by 1 point. If invested in Constitution and the ability score moves to the even number, this will result in an increase in character HP.
  • Inherent bonus - A Manual of Bodily Health will raise the Constitution score by the appropriate value. For more information, refer to Tomes.
  • Enchanted Bonus - Unless noted otherwise, bonuses within a single category do not stack.
    • Item Enhancement - Items may come with the enchanted bonus of +1 - +8.
    • Exceptional Constitution - Some rare items may come with a +1 Exceptional Constitution bonus. (+2 Exceptional bonuses were changed to insightful bonus in Update 14.)
    • Insightful Constitution - Other rare items may come with a +2, +3 or +4 Insightful bonus.
    • Guild Airship buff shrines - Provides a +1 or +2 Artifact bonus. (Note: Modern ship buffs only provide +2, but +1 or +2 legacy shrines may still be purchased.)
    • Yugo Pot bonus - The Yugoloth Favor Potion, Essences of Desire, adds a +2 bonus to constitution for 15 minutes).
    • Potion of Health - The House Deneith Collector, Zolar Drexxian, may provide a Potion of Health +1 - +3 alchemical bonus, in exchange for particular collectables.
