Skills and Trainer Locations

For the most part, each settlement usually has two trainers. You can occasionally get some skills for free or from people who aren’t full trainers.

You only have 3 unlocks of special skills, which are the ones in the middle of the skill table that cost 500 silver. You have to unlock this skill to unlock the higher tier skills which cost 600 silver. I have yet to find any way to increase the amount skill points you get, but if somebody has please let me know. I’ve denoted the skills which use those skill points as point skills because I’m really clever. The skills listed before the point skill are all the unlockable ones, the ones after the point skills require it.

The lowest level of skills cost 50 silver, then the ones above them usually cost 100. Then 500 for the “skill” skill, and 600 for the top tier ones.

This is a WIP, I’ll be adding others as I go along.
