Warrior SkillsMage SkillsRogue Skills

 

Each class has 6 different skills to choose from. Since there is a limited amount of skill points in the game, choosing the right skills for your character early on is key for your party's survival. The only way to max out a skill is to concentrate on only 1 or 2 of these at a time. Skill points are very rare, and since the only experience you have is from combat, you can't afford to put any skills in something you will never use.

 

Below I you will find the skills separated into the 3 character classes that can use them.
