The Reverberation Condition, Explained

BG3: the character

First and foremost, when you affect an enemy with the Reverberation condition, you will decrease the following abilities of your opponent:

  • Strength
  • Constitution
  • Dexterity

With this effect, these abilities will be reduced by -1 each turn. For example, an enemy has 2 turns left, its powers will be reduced by -1 in the first turn and another -1 in the second turn, resulting in -2 total. In addition, starting from four or more turns left, enemies will receive 4 Thunder damage, with a slight chance that they will be knocked Prone. Your opponents will also suffer a -1 penalty to their saving throws each turn. However, keep in mind that when your opponents have Thunder resistance, they are automatically invulnerable to the Reverberation condition.
