Dishonored 2 Bonecharms

There are several kinds of charms in the game:
  • Regular bonecharms grant a variety of enchantments, such as improving the effects of elixirs and remedies, swimming speed, jumping ability, and strengthening Corvo’s and Emily’s supernatural powers.
  • Corrupted bonecharms have powerful beneficial effects, but they are counterbalanced by penalties. They have both positive and negative traits, and it is up to player to see if the penalty is not too severe and decide if the charm stays equipped.
  • Legendary blackbone charms are pretty powerful. They are rare and hard to find, but they have strong traits, almost godlike.

How to craft bonecharms in Dishonored 2

There is a new system in Dishonored 2 that lets you craft your own bonecharms. Every bonecharm you find can be dismantled. When you do destroy a charm, you’ll learn its traits. After you’ve found some raw whale bone, you’ll have the chance to craft your own.
As you upgrade the charm crafting power, you’ll be able to make stronger charms. You’ll first unlock more trair slots (up to four), then the ability to stack traits. For example, when at max level, you can use up all four slots with a trait that gives you the ability to jump 5% higher, for a total of 20% more jump height.
Be wary, though – there’s always a chance you’ll create a corrupted charm, which is a waste. According to the developers there are around 400.000 charms, when you factor in all the traits, with the maximum number of slots and the ability to stack. Tough choices are ahead of you.
