Skills are an adventurer’s area of expertise. Each time you complete a task, you’ll select the skill you primarily used to complete it. When you create your character, you choose skills that you think you’ll use often from the big list. These are the skills your character is “trained” in, and will appear at the top of the skill menu when you complete a quest for ease of access.
The more tasks you complete using a certain skill, the more skill points (SP) you receive in that skill. As you receive more points in a skill, you will level that skill up.
