Warbook skills are different specializations in combat. Skills are automatically used and there can be three active skills at any given time. These can be switched whenever needed.
There are two kinds of skills, passive and procced. Passive skills provide their effects at all times, procced skills trigger when certain conditions are met. For example, "Procs every 4 attacks" means that the effects of the skill are applied every fourth strike when in combat.
- First attack - The effects are applied only at the first successful attack in combat.
- Every X attacks - The effects are applied at every X attacks.
- On hit - The effects are applied whenever the character is hit by an enemy.
- On combat initiating - The effects are applied straight away on initiation of combat.
There are no character classes in the Staglands, but different kinds of character builds can be achieved with different skills and equipment.
Certain combinations of skills can be very effective. For example Quick Strike grants faster attack speed at the expense of damage, but the faster attack speed results in more frequent "Every X attacks" -procs. Combined with Poison Weapon, you have a character that attacks very quickly, causing very little physical damage with every hit, but causing unblockable poison damage with each hit.
Likewise, "On hit" skills Hydra and Fortitude are less effective when combined with skills such as Agile Fighting and Reckless offense, which decrease the chance of getting hit by enemies.
