Skill Types[edit source]

Why does the Skill Types section exist? It's based on a misunderstanding of something Cain said in one of the updates (he was talking about player goals, not any kind of in-game categories), and we now know what all of the skills are, so this section seems completely pointless.

I wouldn't say its misunderstanding, just that they scaled back the skills since. Regardless I agree, it is pointless atm. --AnotherArk (talk) 23:51, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Skill bonus[edit source]

What if we change the table layout into something like this bellow, or do you guys find the current variant more informative?

Skill bonus\Class Barbarian Chanter Cipher Druid Fighter Monk Paladin Priest Ranger Rogue Wizard
Athletics +++ --- --- +++ +++ --- --- +++ --- --- ---
Lore --- +++ --- --- +++ --- --- +++ --- --- +++
Mechanics --- +++ --- --- --- --- --- --- --- +++ +++
Stealth --- --- --- --- --- +++ --- --- +++ +++ ---
Survival +++ --- --- +++ +++ --- --- --- +++ --- ---

We can also use strong/lesser ( minor/major or wait for specifics numbers ) to indicate the skill focus (e.g. Barbarians all have a strong skill focus in Athletics and lesser focus in Survival). I also removed the references, since they aren't necessary unless the relevant class entry don't mention/reference their skill focus, which they all should.--AnotherArk (talk) 19:19, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
