Feats are a maneuver system under the Player System Manager similar to Combat Maneuvers for warriors, rogues, and monks. Feats may be granted automatically when Weapon Skill requirements are met, or require training like the other systems. The FEAT verb provides access to this system.

  • Feats may not be unlearned without a FIXSKILLS.
  • Confirmation is required prior to learning a Feat.
  • Squares will have a feat unlocked at level 25, 30, 40 and 50.


  • Buff - Buffs are skills that must be activated via use of commands, and assist the user with either their attack or defense.
  • Attack - Attack skills utilize and enhance the user's normal attack.
  • Passive - Passive Buffs are skills that are automatically active once learned, and assist the user with either their attack or defense.
