Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Blessings and Achievements Guide - how to get Berath's Blessings

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has, of course, numerous achievements to earn. While that's not exactly all that exciting, what is a little different about Deadfire is the presence of Berath's Blessings. Each time you earn an achievement in Deadfire, you will earn a certain number of points in order to spend on any new games for extra bonuses and a bit of a leg up. If you're at all familiar with the Grade system found in many Tales of games, then it's highly similar to that, only you don't need to finish your file in order to make use of the bonuses.

We've put together a list of all of the achievements in the game, as well as all of the possible bonuses these can confer on your followup playthroughs.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Berath's Blessings Guide

Once you've gathered some or all of the possible Blessings, you can spend them on buffs for your new playthrough. Note that there are seemingly at the moment only 79 points available and getting all Blessings would cost 82, so it's not possible to get all of the possible Blessings (unless you get a bonus for having all of them -- we haven't been able to confirm if this is the case.) 

+5,000 Starting Money (3) - Begin the game with additional money to buy higher quality equipment, consumables, and ship upgrades.
