The art of drawing upon arcane powers to produce a desired effect, these skill trees require talent, intense study, and practice. With a high build point cost required to access them that include attack, defend, and move type skills, these trees are character defining. Beyond the skill trees, characters can choose from various custom schools and specializations. Each individual skill has an associated attribute that is used as the base score, adding the overall skill tree points and any modifiers to determine its overall score.
After a specialty skill tree has been acquired during character generation, players are able to purchase a number of novice skills to enhance their overall capabilities based on the number of build points they have remaining. More advanced Expert and Master level skills can be purchased after a specific number of skill tree points have been gained after level advancement, and may require some specific prerequisite skills. All skills that are available to be purchased are included in the specialty.
