The latest and very comprehensive FAQ has appeared on the Crowfall site that aims to give fans a more detailed look at skills and how they progress for characters throughout the game. Developers are also looking forward to the discussion that the FAQ will generate as well.
Topics in the FAQ include:
10. WHAT KINDS OF SKILL TREES ARE THERE?
Skill trees are divided into two main categories: general and archetype.
General skills are further subdivided into three major gameplay activities: combat, crafting and exploration.
The skills contained in each tree are what you might expect to find. Skills that are useful across every archetype, weapons and armor skills in the combat trees, crafting skills in the crafting trees and gameplay actions as stealth, harvesting and animal husbandry in the exploration trees.
Archetype skill trees contain specific skills related to each archetype and their promotion classes. Each archetype has a dedicated skill tree, and three promotion class dependent trees that allow further class specialization.
These are just a few of the questions presented on the Crowfall site. Head on over to check out the rest along with the detailed developer answers.
