Skills

Skills are automatically gained when a character reaches a certain level in their current class, depending on whether they are currently assigned a Base Class or an Advanced Class (or a DLC Class). There are four additional skills that you can get through DLC chapters, and certain characters, such as Walhart and Aversa, have their own unique skills.

Because of the Class Change system, a character can amass an extensive collection of skills from their Class Change options. To balance this, no character can have more than five skills outfitted at a time. Nevertheless, you can decide what those five skills are from all the skills a character has ever learned.

Children characters will inherit a skill from each of their parents. They will inherit the last skill on the parent’s skill list of skills each of their parents has currently equipped, even if it’s from a class that they cannot reclass into because of their gender. Because of this you can pass down a skill like Galeforce from a female avatar to Morgan, and a male avatar can pass down any Fighter or Barbarian skills that they may have picked up to their daughter. However, skills from Downloadable Content cannot be inherited.

There are also eight enemy exclusive skills, which can be found on the Enemy Skills page. Only Dragonskin will appear on all difficulties while Hit Rate +10 and Rightful God will appear on Lunatic and higher. All 5 other skills will begin to appear on Lunatic+. All enemy skills will appear on all difficulties of Apotheosis.
