Constitution, abbreviated as Con, is a character attribute in Planescape: Torment.

Effects Edit

Constitution allows characters to have more hit points and regenerate hit points faster.

Constitution is retroactive. That is, if The Nameless One's Constitution is increased, he will gain all the Bonus HPs as if he'd had that Constitution from the start of the game. Conversely, it does not help to increase Con before leveling up.

Constitution and Hit Points Edit

In a game where there was no healing (almost hypothetical, but say, resting only), or where damage is very large compared to the Hit Point pool, then the HP pool would become of great importance. The pool is also more important in games where damage output of enemies is fast in relation to the time it takes to heal, which can be true of Torment, unless the Autopause functions are engaged. Call it cheesy, but you can't call it ineffective: no character will ever die in Torment if Autopause is set to engage when characters are at low health, the characters are healed to an HP level that is higher than the enemy is capable of damaging in a single hit, and characters still have healing items in their inventory or the inventory of another character close by

If a player chooses to use this function, then the game becomes less about reaction time, and more about preparation; specifically how to maximize damage output, reduce damage received, and maximize the efficiency of healing and the Copper commons costs of all these things. Constitution becomes of no consequence compared with Damage bonuses, THAC0 values, Armor Class, Resistances, Kiting and other forms of Crowd Control, Overkill, Concentration of Fire, or even money supply.

Permanent Gains Edit

Aside from increasing Constitution with character points acquired at level up, The Nameless One has some opportunities throughout the game to increase his constitution permanently:

That makes the maximum permanent gain to constitution possible +6, +5 without specializations and +3 without the Ancient Scroll.

Equipment Bonuses Edit

Some tattoos grant a bonus to constitution while equipped:

Some accessories also grant a bonus to constitution:
