Yesterday I talked a lot about the weapons available in the game. Well, weapons are not the only way to get stronger. Like all good MMOs Ryzom has a leveling system and a skills system. The skills you learn can also be upgraded through the stanza system. This is a pretty cool trick. You take the skill learn, then select edit skill, then you just balance the credits and the upgrades until you have the greatest skills you can imagine. You get to control exactly how your skill works and what its strengths and weaknesses are. Talk about giving you the creative control.
