The three different skillsets in GreedFall. Each is represented with a different colour.

Skills are a huge element in GreedFall to create the desired player character. Players unlock a new point as they gain a new level.

Skills dictate which weapons you can use, provides a bonus to certain aspects of the weapons (damage amount, armor stripping, stunning, etc.), or opens up the ability to do things like apply magical or poisonous potions to your weapons. To plan your build, scroll over each node to see what benefits you're going to receive.

For example, if you wish to use Two-Handed Heavy Weapons, you need to start with One-Handed Heavy Weapons and purchase all the nodes between it to the Two-Handed Heavy Weapons node. Only then can equip Two-Handed Heavy Weapons and begin using them.

When you are out in the world exploring, you should keep an eye open for Skill Altars — discovering these give you a free Skill Point. From a distance, they appear on the map as question marks, but when you get closer, you can see if they are Skill Altars or some other point of interest.

Best skills to start with[]

Skills affect your hero in every way. They determine what you will be able to do and how you will behave. If you don't buy weapon skills you won't be able to use any weapons.

But you don't have to worry - skills aren't mutually exclusive.

Warrior - the perfect skill for strong, determined warriors is a skill tree dedicated to this class. These skills develop attacks and increase their strength. In addition, it will be a good idea to develop a roll. It will allow you to quickly dodge opponent's blows.

Magic - a good idea, in the case of this character class, will be not only developing a tree of magic abilities, but also investing in magical healing. It will regenerate 250 points of your health.

Technical - in the case of this class it is worth to invest in the skill of Shadow Impact. This attack not only knocks away enemies but also makes them more vulnerable to damage.
