In-Depth Proficiency List

Physical Proficiencies

  • Weapon Proficiencies - all weapon proficiencies, bladed, blunt, ranged, and martial, are about using a weapon of a particular style and govern how effectively the character can use that weapon. Additionally, weapons may have a minimum proficiency requirement, making the player unable to equip a weapon without meeting that proficiency. This also means that players who do not have a proficiency cannot equip weapons of that type at all(E.G.: a player without bladed proficiency cannot equip a sword).

  • Shield Proficiency - a shield can be used along with a single-handed weapon and grants additional armor. Certain facets can also be used with shields to produce special effects. with the right facets, a player can even equip two shields and become nearly immune to melee attacks(though sacrificing the ability to make melee attacks in the process). Players using a shield are also granted a minimum DV.
    • Shield Proficiency

  • Armor Proficiencies - armor proficiency, like weapon proficiency, deals with what sort of armor a player can equip, and how effectively it will protect him or her.

A character may only equip armor for which they have the appropriate profiecy.
