Skill

From Legends of Aria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Legends of Aria relies on a proficiency based system, therefore skill points are gained by performing actions. Upon character creation players are allocated 100 skill points that can be distributed between four skills. There are currently 29 skills available, but each character's skills are capped at a total of 600 skill points. Skills can be accessed by pressing the K key or by clicking on the blue book on your characters paper doll. Skills can be set to a maximum level with a slider found that specific skills page. Skills can be tracked or untracked on the right side of the UI by clicking the "Track Skill" button on the top right of a skill page. Up to 6 skills can be tracked at one time.


There seems to be a bug in Early Access (v 0.8.3). If a skill is at 0.0 (even if it is set to raise), it will never succeed nor will you get skill gains. You 'must' train some level of proficiency at a trainer before you will get any skill gains.
