Prestige Abilities are extra abilities your character can learn in addition to the basic weapon and skill abilities.
These abilities are learned via prestige skill books that drop in the world that will simply be titled the name of the prestige ability. Each prestige ability requires the character know a certain skill to an adequate level, and the book will show the requirement to learn the ability. It also costs a certain amount of ability points (visible on your character sheet by hitting "C"). If your character meets all the criteria, you can visit the appropriate trainer (Fighter, Mage, Rogue) in town to consume the book and add the ability to your hotbar.
Prestige abilities are permanent unless overridden by a different ability.
A character may learn three abilities of any level (for example, three level 1 abilities) but may only have three learned at once.
Attempting to learn a 4th prestige ability will prompt the player to pick one of the currently existing known ones to replace with the new ability.
**Note** As of last patch Tier 1 Undead (Skeletons/Zombies) no longer drop Skillbooks.
Requirements[edit | edit source]
To train a prestige ability you need fulfill three requirements.
- You must first obtain a prestige skill book. Each individual ability has a prestige book meaning you can mix and match prestige abilities from all of the classes.
- You need the requisite amount of ability points depending on the tier of prestige ability you are training. Ability points are obtained by gaining prestige experience by killing monsters. Gaining 1000 prestige experience gives you 1 Ability Point
- Level 1: 3 Point
- Level 2: 10 Points
- Level 3: 25 Points
- You must have the requisite skill levels on your character. This requirement varies by prestige ability and level.
