In such a case, piling on deflection for them may be a relative waste the flipside to diminishing returns is increasing losses, so it would be hard to dig your way out of a deep hole. An accuracy and deflection on par with characters actually expected to go toe-to-toe. In this same example, a critical hit has a 50% chance to interrupt. Most players who have played the game before probably have experienced this reality with Eder who will most likely be outfitted with Wary Defender, a large shield, and Weapon and Shield specialization, helping his deflection skyrocket to hardy levels. You can also cast spells from scrolls of level equal to or less than half your current lore.
Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition brings back a rather old-school method of play: the tactical role-playing adventure game, with heavy narrative elements, looting, and open-ended story options.

Poison and disease are a little more common than you think, being a subtype of other attacks. Thus, each damage spell generally fulfills a different niche.
Remember that recovery time is dependent on attack frames. Still not exactly world-beating, but not bad. Slower weapons will benefit less since they already do so much damage that getting an extra 5 may not be worth the -20% penalty to recovery time.

It's not always consistent, but you should be aware of this, both on defense and also when dealing with enemy casters. The problem with high-level chanters Chanters are great versatile additions to a party, but suffer from a curious problem: the more powerful your party, the less impact a chanter has.

Vessels cover similarly problematic enemies: Dargul, Adra Animat, Death Guard, and Fampyr. And even later on in the game, when accuracy is high, the additional +12 accuracy further increases the likelihood of proccing these crit effects.
Notably, the monk and ranger are in a health multiplier tier higher than their endurance tier, which suggests they are expected to take more damage than other classes in their endurance tier. This is because higher-level chants take longer to sing and higher-level invocations take more sung chants to use. Likewise, wearing -50% plate is not that much worse than -45% mail, whereas -5% priest robes is comparatively much worse than 0% simple clothing. This is because as a defense rises in number and the attacker's miss range increases, each additional point taken away from the attacker's hit range is a greater proportion of the remaining hit range.

This sounds like a weakness, but is actually a strength because this means that much of the chanter's power comes built-in. In any situation and in either strategy, whenever your monk eventually does take damage, Lesser Wounds increases the likelihood that you get a meaningful amount of wounds out of it. Improvements to attack rate also help, so Gunner or Two-Weapon Style are good choices depending on your weapons of choice. In addition, there are still a couple of core abilities that are fantastic.
