Secondary Skills

Realm of Strife™ > Secondary Skills

Secondary skills are not dependent on a particular class mechanic list and represent an assortment of skills that can significantly impact combat capabilities, but also the provide the ability to craft items, generate wealth, or improve role-playing mechanics. Secondary Skills are broadly defined as either Standard and Specialist Secondary Skills.

The secondary skill system has recently undergone a massive update and some items are still in development or exist as placeholders. For generic information on a particular discipline of secondary skills see the legacy secondary skill pages. Where detailed descriptions of skills differ from the table below, assume that the new updated table below is correct. With many new skills now available, it is important to check older characters (created prior to Q3 2022)  for any legacy secondary skills that have been updated or even completely reworked. As an example, the legacy Scholar secondary skill has now been split into several new skills found in Academic and Mystical schools.
