Skills are actions or modifiers you can use in combat. There are four types of skills:
- Attack Skills - Square Icon - Form a word and attack using these skills.
- Instant Skills - Round Icon - Do actions before attacking.
- Passive Skills - Diamond Icon - Modifies your stats without the player having to take any action.
- Defense Skills - Diamond Icon - NPC only skills that can be activated in response to the player forming a word.
