Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem Skills and Skill Trees refers to Character Progression by investing Skill Points into Skill Trees that unlock active & passive abilities in Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem. There are two main categories which are Active Skills and Passive Skills, active skills are usually executed on the battlefield that either inflicts damages to enemies or grants various temporary buffs and ailments. Passive Skills, on the other hand, are skills that are permanently applied to the stats of the character. This page covers a full list of all the skills that are shown in the game.

 

See Builds for Wolcen Builds for all styles!

 

How to Get Skill Points

Obtaining points and upgrading a skill is different for both Active and Passive Skills. For active skills, these skills are learned through enneracts or tomes that can be looted or purchased. Players will need to equip and use the skill frequently to increases its potency and to obtain skill modifier points which grants various buffs and effects to a specified active skill. For passive skills, players obtain a skill point whenever their character levels up.

 

How to Spend Skill Points

To spend skill points, first, for the passive skills, simply open the Gates of Fate or the Passive Skill Tree, there you can fully choose the path of your skills with the help of rotating ring and choose which passive skill you want to unlock. On the other hand, for an active skill, simply open the active skills menu and choose which skill you want to increase its level as well as unlocking an active skill modifier by spending the skill modifier points.

 

Can I Respec My Skill Points?

Players can respec their skill points by using Primordial Affinity instead of coins. Simply open the menu for either the active or passive skills and select reset.
