Magic, Combat, and Crafting Skills[edit]

This is an introduction to each of the skills and what they can offer. A better understanding requires knowledge of Stats, Damage Types, and the skills system[1].

Combat is achieved with a skill bar that is comprised of your Deck. A deck is made with Noble Skills, Focus Skills, and Slugs. Some of the slots may be Locked Slots[2].

Magic[edit]

Main Article: Magic

Magic is one of the two skill rings that involve offensive and defensive abilities in Shroud of the Avatar. It has an outer ring written in Runic that translates "Lunar Rifts And ~ Forsaken Virtue ~ Are The Costs ~ Of Colliding Moons ~ But There Is ~ Yet Hope For ~ Those Who Seek ~ Knowledge In Chaos"

There are eight magic schools on the skill ring that include: Sun, Earth, Life, Water, Lunar, Air, Death, Fire. The center of the ring creates an eight point Chaos starr and is also included as a magic skill with a few variations.

Combat[edit]

Main Article: Combat

Combat is one of the two skill rings that involve offensive and defensive abilities in Shroud of the Avatar. It has an outer ring written in Runic that translates "Only a Last Resort ~ Legitimate Authority ~ Redress of Injury ~ Proper Intention ~ Achievable Success ~ Proportional Harm ~ Imminent Danger ~ Avert Noncombatants"

There are eight combat schools on the skill ring that include four offensive schools: Blade, Polearm, Bludgeon, Ranged; and four defensive schools: Gambeson, Mail, Plate, Shield.

Crafting[edit]

Main Article: Crafting

Crafting is the skill ring for Gathering, Refining, and Production to create nearly everything in the game. The majority of the game content is created by players and recycled into the system. To allow balance crafting was given a separate skillset and experience pool to level. Just like Magic and Combat, it has an outer ring written in Runic that translates "Craftsmanship is Earned ~ Honed through Practice ~ Attention to Detail ~ Elegant and Functional ~ Refined and Durable"

There are 15 crafting skill schools that are broken into the three groups.
