Each character in Atlantica Online has one or more Skills aka Magic Skills. Each hero (main) character can have up to 5 skills (eventually as the hero levels) and each mercenary can have numerous skills, how many and which vary by mercenary.
Some skills can be used by more than one Main Character or Mercenary, others are limited to a single class.
New skills are learned and existing skill level increased by consuming skill books.
Atlantica Online has a huge list of Magic Skills. Therefore, they are listed in several different lists on separate pages:
- Skills List: Complete Skills List of all 250+ skills.
- Combination Skills: Combination Skills are triggered by multiple Skills being cast on the same character(s).
- Healing Skills: Skills that heal character(s). See the Healers page for these.
- Skills that deal with Stuns: See the Stun page for a discussion of these.
Hero (Main Class) Skills
Each Main Character (Hero) can have up to 5 skills, 3 skills prior to level 100. After the level 100 upgrade quest line, the hero can choose a 4th skill. After the level 120 upgrade quest line, the hero can choose a 5th skill. While a hero has a choice of several level 120 skills, a hero can only choose 1 of the available level 120 skills.
Each mercenary has the possibility to learn several skills, as defined in Atlantica Online under Game Info > Classes. That mercenary can, but does not have to, learn all of the skills available to that mercenary, limited only by the available skill points.
Skill Points determine how many skill levels a given character (main or mercenary) can learn.
Atlantica Online has a huge amount of skills, which are listed here as a reference, but it might make more sense to look at the skills each individual Main Character and/or Mercenary has. Also see the Healers page for Healer Characters and their Healing Skills.
Skills can be unlearned in the Skills Window. You must have 1 Skill Decrease Book for each skill level you wish to decrease (can be crafted or bought from the Market) or use Atlas Ore Fragments instead (this is more expensive). Legion Mercs cannot unlearn skills.
