Skills and Talents in Elder Scrolls Online
When you swich to the "Skills" tab you can see all avaliable skill lines. There are 4 major categories of Skills in Elder Scrolls Online that are avaliable from the start:
- Armor Skills - responsible for armor efficiency and for your defence.
- Weapons Skills - responsible for weapon strength.
- Class Skills - special abilities restricted by your class.
- Crafting Skills - crafting abilities
There are also skills that can be discovered through exploration. Your character can get access to these lines only if he joins specific guilds or discovers them while traveling:
- Mages Guild - become available if you join Mages Guild.
- Fighters Guild - becove available if you join Fighters Guild.
- Dark Brotherhood - becove available if you join Dark Brotherhood (Will be added in post-launch updates).
- Thieves Guild - becove available if you join Thieves Guild (Will be added in post-launch updates).
- Vampire - skills that allow you to use Vampire abilities.
- Werwolf - skills that allow you to use Werwolf abilities.
Each category has sub categories with active or passive abilities.
Passive abilities do not require any actions from the player; when you invest skill points in passive abilities you automatically receive the result. For example you can increase your passive defense or damage. Effects of passive abilities are permanent.
Active abilities require player’s actions for activation, such abilities must be places on your hotbar and can be activated from the hotbar only. The example of such an ability is dual-strike – you hit your enemy with both weapons at once.
Leveling and Progression
When you have definite abilities on your hotbar and use it during the game you receive experience for that ability and the more you use it the faster your progress will be. When you reach the 4th level in Weapon skill or Class skill you can Morph it by adding new effects to the skill. For example, you can add knockback effect or stunning effect. Morph abilities change for different skills, this system allows you to create a unique character with a unique set of skills. You can manage your abilities and extra effects yourself.
A general idea of Elder Scrolls Online is to let player pick up any weapon and explore different abilities and talents. It doesn't matter how you begin, you can change your specialization any time. There will be enough skill points to unlock all your talents and try different builds.
The information about changing specialization was renewed: ESO provides player with many skills and a player may want to redistribute points after some time. You’ll be able to reset your skills, receiving room to try new things or undo choices you aren’t happy with. Though it is possible, it will cost you money and the price will be rather high. Thus it’s not a cheap option that can be used every hour.
