Devotion is a passive skill system intended to provide players with an extra level of character development. It gives access to an array of constellations that in turn grant the player new attributes and abilities.
Earning Devotion[edit | edit source]
Devotions are unlocked by finding and restoring various Shrines scattered throughout the game world.
- Ruined Shrines must be repaired using rare materials.
- Corrupted Shrines can be purified by defeating the corrupting power hidden within the Shrine.
Restoring a shrine grants a single point of Devotion. A total of 50 Devotion points can be obtained across three difficulty levels (55 with the Ashes of Malmouth Expansion). Devotion Points are spent within the Devotion Window, which is accessed through the Skill Window.
Devotion Points can also be purchased in The Crucible by using tributes. The amount of tributes required to purchase Devotion Points goes up as the character obtain more Devotion Points.

Spending Devotion Points[edit | edit source]
Devotion points can be spent to unlock stars in a Constellation. Each star provides a passive bonus, which can include attributes, damage, resistances, and so on. Completing a Constellation grants an Affinity Bonus, which is then used to unlock higher Constellations.
Affinity[edit | edit source]
Each Constellation is aligned with a combination of Affinities:
|Ascendant:||Ascendant beings have risen to godlike status through immense feats or reverence from their lessers.|
|Chaos:||Chaotic beings crave entropy and destruction above all else.|
|Eldritch:||Eldritch beings represent the wild forces of magic and the metaphysical realms beyond the veil.|
|Order:||Beings of order cherish harmony and balance in all things.|
|Primordial:||Primordial beings embody the powers of creation, life, death, and reality itself.|
Celestial Powers[edit | edit source]
Some Constellations provide special bonuses known as Celestial Powers. Celestial Powers (50 in total) are unique skills which can be linked to normal Mastery or Item skills, and have a chance to trigger off the skill as a secondary effect. Celestial Powers also earn experience, increasing the skill level as they are used. They can also be changed at any time within the Devotion Window, and any experience earned is saved, although it will not earn experience while it is not assigned to a skill.
Assigning Celestial Powers[edit | edit source]
A skill can only have one Celestial power assigned to it at a time, but there is no hard limit on how many different skills have secondary effects. They can also be linked to granted skills from equipment and Components; should a piece of equipment be switched out, the skill assignment will remain, but the celestial power will no longer be active or gain experience.
With skills that summon multiple pets (i.e. Thermite Mines, Wind Devils), Celestial procs will have a shared cooldown.
Refunding Devotion Points[edit | edit source]
Devotion points can be refunded using the Spirit Guide, however a Constellation cannot be undone if it grants an Affinity to another Constellation that has points invested. Constellations can support themselves if they grant Affinity they require, allowing you to refund Devotion points from Constellations used to reach them. Devotion points can also be completely reset by using a Tonic of Clarity, which can drop only from Nemesis bosses.
