Inherent bonus

From DDO wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A bonus to an ability score, skill, or other statistics, resulting from powerful magic, such as a wish.

  • Multiple inherent bonuses do not stack, so only the best one applies.
  • Inherent bonuses cannot be dispelled.
  • Inherent bonuses (to ability and skill) count for feat prerequisites, such as Power Attack or Single Weapon Fighting.

Sources[edit]

Reincarnation[edit]

All inherent bonuses are kept with any form of reincarnation. Skill and ability bonuses apply gradually as you level up (+1 and +2 at 1st level, +3 at 3rd, +4 at 7th, +5 at 11th, +6 at 15th, +7 at 19th, and +8 at 22nd).

On the character sheet:

  • You can see your current active bonus by hovering over an ability score or skill.
  • For abilities, you can check your total inherent bonus on the Feats tab under special feats.
  • For skills, there's no way to display the total inherent bonus for low-level characters.

History[edit]

Inherent bonuses on equipable items no longer exist as of Update 14.
