Skills are enhancements that boost a player's effectiveness in doing certain tasks, such as shooting, running, and resource gathering. Skills may be bought using experience obtained from harvesting resources and killing NPCs. Upon death, half of the levels bought in non-specialized branches (see Skillsets) are lost, as well as half of acquired experience. It takes a total of 3820 experience to buy all skills without the influence of skillsets (Which halves the cost of the specialised skills)
