Hero Skill Tree

As Heroes level up, players are given points to put towards Abilities. Some Abilities will increase the Hero's attribute scores, while other Abilities will offer more specific bonuses. As the Hero has a maximum level of 20 it means that you can pick 19 Abilities (or 21 (including Cyberskilled) if you pick up Cyberskilled).  Note that in Disharmony, the maximum level has been raised to 25, resulting in a corresponding increase in the ability count to 24/26.

Some Abilities require the Hero to have a specific Hero Class.
