Sampling from the best of both worlds, Crowfall will allow both offline passive and online active skill training for characters.
In a dev update posted today, the team explained that players can pick up to three skills to learn while they are logged out of the game. The lore excuse here is that priests are praying for your hero to remember skills from a previous life. Offline training will be the main method of advancing your character’s abilities, although you can advance skills through active use as well. The team said that a skill slotted for primary training will rise to 100% in a month’s time, while a tertiary trained skill will take three times that.
The studio also posted a behind-the-scenes interview with Crowfall’s artists, so give that a watch after the jump.
