Determination Notes and Trivia

  • Points are first placed into the core skill (e.g. Melee) of the specialized skill (e.g. 1-Handed Melee) which improves all of the specialized skills in that group up to Rank 50.
  • Once it reaches Rank 50, skill points can be directly added to the specialized skill to increase the effect up to Rank 100/ 150 (Only available with Peril on Gorgon DLC).
  • Some armor, consumables and status effects can temporarily raise and lower the effects of your skills.
