Skill Overview

Skills give players special or improved abilities. Some require that you learn other skills first, and a few are available only to certain character classes. Skills are bought with XP.

Certain skills, like haunting scream and basic tracking, unlock actions which consume AP. Other skills, like trekking and close quarter combat, are passive and do not need to be activated after being purchased for the player to benefit from them. While most skills in a tree have effects that stack on one another, haunting scream and shocking shriek remain individual skills (but banshee wail will replace shocking shriek).

Cost of Skills

Learning an initial skill costs 100 XP. After that, each learned skill costs 25 XP more than the previous one, until you reach level 30. Hence the formula for a skill's XP cost is 100 + 25 * (your level). (Your character's level, which you can see in your profile, is the number of skills you have learned.) To go from level 30 to 31 costs 1000 XP, and each level above that requires an additional 200 XP. So the above formula is modified to read 1000 + 200 * ((your level) - 30).

Below is a Chart, which shows the overall number of XP points to pay for a complete skill tree.
