    Default Question on soul tree abilities

    will abilities stack...for instance, if i have 2 warrior souls each with points in endurance/stam or each have 5% armor increase will the two count as 10% or would half the points be wasted?

    Passive branch abilities stack.

    They're actually working for the most part in a multiplicative manner. So you get 5% of 100% and 5% of 105%.

    In the case of +Attribute, yes. But didn't we come to the conclusion things like +Crit and +Hit are additive?

    Yes, those seem to be additive.

    No, the question was, can you take abilities from multiple sources and see them stack.

    So if you have one that gives you more endurance, for example, can you get another ability that gives more endurance? The answer is yes.

    Actually the answer is no, specifically for Endurance Buffs from say, Cleric souls. Tested this in B4.

    However, abilities like +3/6/9/12/15% Endurance from one soul Branch DOES stack with the +% Endurance from another soul tree's Branch, which was the original question.

    Yea, I didn't get to test Warrior and Rogue Souls as much as I would have liked.

    Yep. For those who actually read the whole thread and understood it: answer is yes. (And multiplicative for non percent-based things . . .)

    I have no issue with clarifications. What you said, however was this:

    That is not a clarification, it is a contradiction, and not relevant to the OP.

    Your wording is the issue, not your content.

    If you take umbrage at me pointing out that you obviously did not clearly read and understand the OP and formlate a suitable reply, I cannot help you.

    In the future I would suggest that you make your clarifications more clarifying and less contradicting. That way they can be taken as such. Because the way your post reads, it contradicts the original (and correct) answers given.

    For clarification: many buffs do not stack. Some do. But as far as traits go (inherent bonuses from souls, the subject of the original post) I have not yet found any that do not stack in either an additive or multiplicative manner.
