Skills determine the abilities of a character and their prowess with weapons and armors. They are improved with Skill Points, which are obtained upon leveling up.
Legend of GrimrockEdit
There are three different sets, one for each of the Classes:
- Warrior Skills (Athletics, Armors, Axes, Maces, Swords, Unarmed Combat)
- Rogue Skills (Assassination, Daggers, Dodge, Missile Weapons, Throwing Weapons, Unarmed Combat)
- Mage Skills (Air Magic, Earth Magic, Fire Magic, Ice Magic, Spellcraft, Staff Defense)
A fourth set, Ranger Skills, is exclusive to Toorum, and holds a mix of the Warrior and Mage Skills. Upon leveling up, each character receives 4 Skill Points to distribute among their Skills. Each Skill can be increased to 50.
Legend of Grimrock 2Edit
