Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a game often lauded for the incredible depth in which players can sculpt their character, giving players a vast range of attributes and abilities at their disposal to create their dream RPG build. Comparisons to roleplaying icons such as Dungeon"s & Dragons and Pillars of Eternity are in no short supply. Divinity 2 has become a staple for RPG fanatics, especially after its successful port to console in 2018.

With the sheer number of skills and abilities Divinity 2 provides players with, it can be easy to make some ill-advised stat investments as one carves their way through Rivellon. After a run-in with a flock of teleporting alligators, for example, a player who prefers archery may decide they need to invest some points in their Warfare skills to assist in taking down enemies who get in close. It can be challenging to choose your abilities wisely in Divinity 2, and Larian Studios understands this. Players gain unlimited access to respecing via a magic mirror aboard the Lady o" War from Act 2 onward. However, while it"s nice to have access to the magic mirror at any time after Act 1, slogging through Fort Joy with mismatched skills and abilities can lead to some challenging fights later in the zone. Thankfully that"s changed, as players can now access a magic mirror before they ever even escape Fort Joy Ghetto early in Act 1.


Divinity Original Sin 2 Magic Mirror Fort Joy Respec
Introduced in Larian Studios" Gift Bag #2 update, players can find the Fort Joy magic mirror below the kitchen in the Fort Joy Arena. Like any of the mods added in Larian"s Gift Bag updates, the ability to access the magic mirror in Fort Joy must first be enabled in the menu by selecting "Gift Bag Features" and scrolling down to ensure "Fort Joy Magic Mirror" is checked. Then, for players just beginning their journey in Rivellon, the path to their first respec is relatively simple. Beginning at the point where the player awakens on the beach after the game"s prologue, head directly south down the path heading towards the Ghetto. Along the way, players will encounter a few points of interest, including a battle with two Voidwoken, the Black Cat, as well as the player"s formal introduction to the Red Prince. Once arriving at the Ghetto, the player (now potentially joined by the Red Prince) will stumble upon a confrontation at the front gates. After watching the brief cutscene, players will then be able to enter the Fort Joy Ghetto itself.


Upon entering the front gates of the Fort Joy Ghetto, players looking to respec should continue south towards the waypoint statue. Head through the doorway behind the statue and players will find themselves in the Ghetto"s kitchen, which is run by the leader of the local gang, Griff. Players can speak to one of Griff"s consortium, Noosey, to learn about the Arena of Fort Joy, a place for fighters to prove their mettle. Conveniently, the hatch used to access the Arena of Fort Joy is immediately next to Noosey. Interact with the hatch and head down into the staging area of the Arena, where players will find the sparkling new Fort Joy magic mirror and finally be able to remove those points they put into Necromancer because they thought Raining Blood sounded cool.


And that"s it! Players can now edit their stats and appearance at any time they"d like in order to best suit their tastes, or whatever the tides of battle may call for. Larian Studio"s commitment to their crowdfunded masterpiece is endearing, considering the game"s now 3-year lifespan. Updates to the game continue to add quality of life improvements such as the Fort Joy magic mirror, additional skills, and abilities, as well as more lore-focused content such as new items, characters, and quests. It"s great to see Larian continuing to prop up their iconic entry into the CRPG genre, even with their continued work on their new, huge projects like Baldur"s Gate III. The continued upkeep of Divinity 2 is sure to keep players coming back to relive the adventures of the Godwoken in Rivellon for some time.
