Physical Skills Page

Physical Skills are almost entirely Combat skills. Skills are used to customize Scarlett's abilities to the players taste.


Weapons Classes Edit

Physical Skills are broadly divided into four classes of weapons, plus some miscellany:

  • Scythe - This applies mostly to the Moonblade.
  • Sword - All the blades that Scarlett will encounter, from the dervish knife to the bastard sword.
  • Hammer - This includes war hammers and battle axes.
  • Spear - Spears, used with Shields.
  • Rogue Skills - Sneaky stuff only Venice's thieves would use.
  • Miscellaneous - A pair of non-combat Physical Skills.

Within those categories, the physical skills are arranged in a hierarchy. It is necessary for Scarlett to learn prerequisite skills in the category (with at least one level of mastery) before she can learn the more advanced skills.

 

Using Physical Skills Edit

Active physical skills need to be invoked explicitly by the player for Scarlett to use them, while Passive physical skills are invoked automatically when appropriate.

Quickbar ps3

In order to use an Active Skill, the player must first assign that skill to the Quickbar (a collection of keys or buttons, depending on the platform.) For example, if Scarlett has learned the Twilight Rift technique, it must first be assigned to one of the buttons on the Quickbar, and then it can be cast easily. (This means the player should adjust which skills are available on the Quickbar according to the situation or opponents.)

Some skills are Passive: they are invoked automatically when they are applicable, sometimes modifying existing actions. For example, if Scarlett has the Sword Mastery skill, the damage bonuses are applied automatically each time she swings a sword. With the Beast Knowledge skill, when invoking the "Search/Loot" action on a slain Creature, it will also include harvesting the animal's useful body parts (hide, horns, beacons).

 

Learning Physical Skills Edit

Most Physical Skills have more than one Level of Mastery: after learning this skill, it is possible to improve Scarlett's proficiency in that skill by expending more Skill Points on that skill. This may increase the damage or duration of the skill. The maximum Level of Mastery depends on the Physical Skill, and varies from one to six.

Physical Skills are assigned on the fifth page of the Inventory Book. The player can use this page when Scarlett is with a teacher of physical skills to select which new physical skills to learn, or the player can use it any time to assign active physical skills to the quick bar so she can use them.

Scarlett can only learn a new Physical Skill, or improve an existing skill, when she is with a Teacher who is able to teach her the skill desired. Not all Teachers know all combat skills. Generally speaking, the teachers Scarlett meets early in the story can teach her basic skills, while teachers she meets later in the story can teach more advanced techniques.

Learning all the Physical Skills associated with a given weapon's class (with at least one level of mastery in each) earns an Achievement as a Master of that weapon class.

 

Physical Skills With Necromancy Edit

Some of the advanced Combat Skills include an element of Necromantic power as well. These draw on Scarlett's Mental Energy to increase the effectiveness of the weapon's attack. Scarlett must have sufficient mental energy to invoke the skill (the amount of Mental Energy required depends on the Skill and its level of mastery.) Those also have Casting Time, the time it takes Scarlett to initiate the skill. (If Scarlett is struck by a physical or mental attack during that casting, the Mental Energy is lost, and the skill fails.) Most of those also have a Cooldown Time, an interval that must elapse before the skill can be used again.

 

Basic Weapons Skills Edit

 

Physical Skills Edit

Combat Skills are divided into hierarchies by weapon type (plus some miscellany). Within each hierarchy, the skills must be learned in order: Scarlett must learn prerequisite skills in the category (with at least one level of mastery) before she can learn the next advanced skills.

 

Moonblade Skills Edit

The Scythe or Moonblade skills apply to Scarlett's use of the Moonblade, the unique weapon only she may wield. Learning all five skills in this category, with at least one level of mastery, earns the "Scythe Master" Achievement (Trophy).
 

Moonblade Mastery Edit

Moonblade Mastery skill icon

Moonblade Mastery is a Passive Physical Skill that allows Scarlett to extend the chain of attacks in a Multiple Attack Combination with additional blows when using her Moonblade. Each Level of Mastery further extends the length of the Combination.

A Combination is a simple but effective sequence of weapon attacks. The Player executes the Combination by timing each subsequent attack immediately after the previous swing ends, such that each new swing flows naturally from the follow-through of the previous strike. Each blow in the combination scores progressively more damage to the enemy's Health than the preceding blow, making long combinations quite deadly.

It is not necessary to actually land any blows to advance a combination. It is therefore possible to begin a combination while the enemy approaches, and let them run into the advanced strikes.

Moonblade Mastery
Level of Mastery Strikes in Chain
1 add 3rd strike
2 add 4th strike
3 add 5th & 6th strikes


Moonblade Mastery is a Passive Skill. It is invoked automatically whenever Scarlett is wielding the Moonblade and times her attacks properly.

Moonblade Mastery is the first skill in the Moonblade category, and is a prerequisite for all other Moonblade Physical Skills.

Twilight Rift Edit

Twilight Rift skill icon

Twilight Rift is an Active Physical Skill that allows Scarlett to use her Moonblade to channel her Necromantic Power, opening a rift to the Twilight World. The enemy she strikes is drawn into that rift and slowed down, becoming vulnerable to attack for the duration.

Twilight Rift has three Level of Mastery, each increasing the duration of the rift slowdown effect, at the cost of slightly more Mental Energy. While the slowdown lasts, the enemy's attacks are slowed greatly and it can be attacked freely.

  * Note: Although the official listing states the Casting Time is zero, Twilight Rift takes a full second to "charge", during which time Scarlett is vulnerable to attack.


Twilight Rift is an Active Skill. It must be placed on the QuickBar so it can be used. It can only be used while Scarlett is wielding her Moonblade.

Scarlett can only learn this Physical Skill after she has learned at least one Level of Mastery in its prerequisite, Moonblade Mastery, and has sufficient Skill Points.

(Read more about Twilight Rift...)
 

Moonblade Block Edit

Moonblade Block skill icon

Moonblade Block is an Active Physical Skill that allows Scarlett to enter a defensive stance with her Moonblade to Block Sword attacks of her enemies. Successfully Blocking an Attack prevents that attack from causing any damage to Scarlett's Health.

Also, successfully Blocking an attack will momentarily throw the attacker off-balance, disrupting any Combination and leaving them briefly open for a counter attack. The counterattack is available once the enemy has attacked but is foiled by the block. Until that time, pressing the attack button while the block is up will not do anything. It is not necessary to release the block to make the counterattack.

Moonblade Block has only a single Level of Mastery. Scarlett can only invoke this skill when she is wielding her Moonblade. Moonblade Block is only effective against Swords and other Sythe Weapons. It is not effective against Hammers or Spears. Scarlett can only block attacks from enemies in front of her.

Moonblade Block is an Active Skill; it needs to be placed on the QuickBar so it can be used. Once Scarlett enters the defensive stance, she can hold it for as long as the designated key/button is pressed. Using the skill does not cost any Mental Energy.

Scarlett can only learn this Physical Skill after she has learned its prerequisite, Twilight Rift.

Deadly Injection Edit

Deadly Injection skill icon

Deadly Injection is an Active Physical Skill that allows Scarlett to combine her Moonblade with her Necromantic Power, using the blade to inject a toxic venom into an enemy. The enemy she strikes is poisoned. While the venom lasts, the enemy suffers repeated damage to Health each second, until the full damage potential is inflicted (or the enemy dies.)

Deadly Injection has three Level of Mastery, each increasing the total damage to the enemy's Health and the duration over which the damage is inflicted, at the cost of slightly more Mental Energy.

3 297 10 sec 16 ME 0 sec 2.5 sec


Even an enemy that has been fatally poisoned can still attack Scarlett until the accumulated damage kills, so it is prident to avoid such enemies while the spell continues working.

Deadly Injection is an Active Skill. It needs to be placed on the QuickBar so it can be used. Pressing the configured key or button combines the skill with a swing of the Moonblade (just like a normal attack). If no enemy is in range or the blow is Blocked, then the attack fails and the Mental Energy is wasted. This Physical Skill can only be used while Scarlett is wielding her Moonblade.

The initial attack affects a small area, so if multiple enemies are very close together, they can all be affected by the initial tick of damage. Only the nearest target continues to take damage over time. The damage can be doubled with Deadly Silence.

Scarlett can learn this Physical Skill (or increase her Level of Mastery) from any of several of the Physical Skill Teachers she meets: Rangar, Ulrik, Abd el Malik and Akbah.

Scarlett can only learn this Physical Skill after she has learned at least one Level of Mastery in its prerequisite, Twilight Rift, and has accumulated sufficient Skill Points.


 

Deathburst Edit
