Character Skills are skills leveled by ability exp or just over time. To activate skills go to the Character window and access the Skills page.
There are currently 3 ways to level a skill once activated:
- Active skills which gain experience by fighting enemies that reward ability experience.
- Passive skills which gain experience from fighting enemies, trade skill activity experience, and a passive gain (currently 35exp/10 seconds).
- Special skills which currently don't do anything and will be removed in the future.
Note that the Activated skills (one Active, one Passive) are the ones gaining XP. You gain the benefit from ALL the skills that are level 1 or higher.
