Level up to unlock new skills. By investing development points into each of them, you can create unique builds for different situations. The game allows you to save several builds at the same time and switch between them as necessary. For example, you can invest your points in different skills, some more suitable for PvP and others for PvE, then simply save both combinations and use them interchangeably.
This applies to both skill and stat builds. Additional pages for your builds for 7 or 30 days can be purchased from the city reputation vendor (Cloud hanging points in unofficial translation) or through the cash shop (you can buy cash credits from other players with in-game money).
You can switch between the builds any time as long as they are not expired and you’re not in fight. All your builds have the same amount of stat and skill points that you had unlocked previously for the main build.
You can reset your stat and skill points within a selected build freely up to level 58 (included), on 59+ you will require special item to reset.
You get some of them from questing, but don’t use them just to experiment, you might end up needing one of them later on when you realise that your stat or skill distribution is not optimal to your play style.
TALENTS FOR EACH OF THE SKILLS
All skills have their own development tree — a range of additional modifying talents. These talents can increase inflicted damage, reduce mana consumption, burn or freeze targets, and more, allowing you to create a truly unique build, selecting the most effective combinations. The higher your character’s level and the more milestones you unlock — the more talent points become available to you. You can get them by spending experience points and Asterion Taels (cloud coupons?), earned by completing quests and killing monsters.
Talent builds are tied together with your skill build pages. Talents, unlike skill points, can be changed any time outside of combat, for free.
Some talents are available for use right from the start, some will require you to use a talent book to unlock them. Books can be acquired through various ways:
Buy from a merchant for coupons + God pages (this NPC has all of them, but it gets expensive).
Buy from PvP / PvE (Exo) merchants (cheaper as you use reputation credits instead of money, but requires a certain rank to become buyable, and only limited selection of books available in each case).
Drop in dungeons of corresponding level range (hard versions and God modes typically). Those books are tradable and can be bought / sold through the market.
Drop from world bosses. Those books are tradable and can be bought / sold through the market.
It is pretty simple.
1 – Buy/unlock 1 talent point (grey on screenshot as this character already has 10 out of 10 bought, and it is the max for it’s current level). Click on that button and it will tell you how much you need to pay in order to unlock 1 talent point. The more you have unlocked, the more expensive it gets.
2 – Distributed points/available (bought) points. The menu cuts off with the English patch, but it’s 0/10 in this example as I have 10 bought and none of them distributed.
3 – Talent that is available for leveling. Left click to put a point in, right click to remove.
4 – Talent that needs a book activated in order to become available.
5 – Talent that needs a higher character level to become available.
