The Tree of Skill in Salt and Sanctuary is where the player will spend Black Pearls and Gray Pearls to acquire Skills. You can acquire Black Pearls by spending Salt in a Sanctuary, or by finding them through out the game. Gray Pearls will refund you Black Pearls, should you choose to respec a Skill.
To the left of the Skill Tree is a seperate window that displays your character stats. You can use L2/R2 to cycle between the panels. This will give you a more accurate readout of how each stat change will affect your character.
The Skill Tree is laid out in such a way that Magic users will put points into the left side of the tree, Dexterity users will put points into the upper left part of the tree, Strength users will put points into the upper right part of the tree and Wisdom users will use the right side of the tree. In between these parts - where they come together - you will see a mix of Skills that would be beneficial to hybrid users.
Some skills will unlock specific features, like unlocking higher class equipment or gaining more healing items at a Sanctuary. Other skills are purely for stats, and these skills can be purchased repeatedly (5x times each) to allow your character to gain higher stats on a specific path.
- Note: If you see weapons or armor with two red lines forming an X, it means you don't have the requirements to use the item. If you see only one red line (over weapons) it means you must two-hand the weapon to use it effectively.
- Note: Similar to weapons, magic/prayers will not be enabled until the appropriate skill level/class is aquired - you will see an X across the skill until you aquire the skill/class. e.g. Prayers cannot be used until you aquire the Cleric Class (bottom right quadrant of the skilltree)
