Skills in Pax Dei


Pax Dei has taken the approach to skills with “You learn by doing.” This means things in gear and weapons might require you to have a skill of a certain level to activate. 

The outcomes of crafting and some other actions are influenced by your skill level. Crafting doesn’t simply map to a recipe having a skill level requirement, as opposed to having a crafting difficulty rating and the outcome depends on your skill level. There is no feature right now for learning from books, but this is in the plans.
