Submission and discussion of possible new skills for the game can be found on the Suggestions page.
Skills allow characters to improve existing abilities or gain new ones. Skills are purchased with Experience Points (XP). The cost of a skill depends on which class was chosen during character creation. Once purchased, skills cannot be deleted. Survivor skills can only be purchased while living, and zombie skills can only be purchased while dead. The number of skills a character knows determines their level.
There are five skill categories. Four are available to survivors and the last is available only to zombies. The categories are:
Civilian skills cost 100 XP each regardless of character class.
Science Skills cost 75 XP each for scientist classes, 100 XP for civilian classes, and 150 XP for military classes.
The Zombie Hunter skills can only be purchased after the character's level has reached 10 or higher. They cost of 100 XP, regardless of character class.
All zombie skills cost 100 XP, regardless of character class.
Completing the Skill Tree
Currently it takes the following amount of XP for the different classes to complete their skill trees:
Civilian characters require only 2200 XP to max out their skill tree.
Characters of the Military class need 2275 XP to complete their skill trees unless they started as a Medic. The Medic starts with a scientist skill and thus only requires 2200 XP to max out.
Science class characters need the most XP to max out; 2950 XP.
Zombies require 2200 XP to max out the skill tree, unless they started as a zombie. Starting zombies receive Vigour Mortis and thus require only 2100 XP to max out.
