Perks and Traits

Perks and Traits are passive boosts to your character, providing stat boosts or other unique effects. Perks and Talents are unlocked through a mixture of gameplay and assigning perk points, which are acquired by gaining levels (one per level, and an additional two every five levels).

As of version 0.3.5.9, a level 50 character will have 69 perk points.

From the top we have the trait bar, with one occupational trait, two equiped traits, and four empty slots. Next row down are currently acquired knowledge perks. Below is the perk tree.

Perks (circular icons) are always active. Traits (square icons) must be equipped in a trait slot before having effect, but are often much more powerful.

Knowledge Perks

Knowledge perks are gained by reading books, and provide a damage boost against a given race. Knowledge perks can not be deactivated once acquired, but given they are pure bonuses you have no reason to do so.

Occupational Traits

Occupational traits are selected as part of character creation, with your selected option being permanently active. There is no way of changing your perk after character creation.

Perk Tree

The perk tree is unlocked by spending points, top to bottom. The tree is broken down into three branches: Physical (which improves health, physical damage and shielding, and weapon damage), Arcane (which improves spell damage, aura, and reduces spell costs), and Lust (which improves lust damage, shielding, and other sex related events). The perk tree can currently be reset at any time outside of combat.
