The skills in EUO can be divided into three categories:
- Class Skills are skills that contribute to your class points total, thus defining the class of your character
- Crafting and Gathering Skills are used in the creation of items
- Miscellaneous Skills are utility skills that are helpful to all players
Level of Skill
All skills, be they crafting, class, or other go up via a percentage based on usage. You generally start out with 0.0% in a skill, but that increases the more you use the skill. Here is a summary of titles based on your skill percentage.
|Skill Mastery||Percentage Range|
Naturally, you may eventually become a Granmaster in multiple skills.
Skills can be increased simply by using them, but often this process is slow. If you have some spare gold lying around, you can buy training in many of the available skills.
The place to buy training skills is at the University of Tanelorne - located at 135' 66" - you will know it because it is between the twin cities of Montor East & West.
Once there, check out the training rooms, and when you think you have found a trainer, press b (buy) to see what training is on offer.
Some Skills are Limited by Stats
Class skills (ie skills that contribute to your class cap) are usually (if not always) limited by your stats. For example, it requires 100 intelligence to get 100 magery.
This is explained in full on the Classes page here.
