While weapons and clothing are a large part of your life in Sunrise City, there are also a set of trainable skills which can help a player further standout from the rest of the crowd. Skills can greatly change the way a player fights in battle. Choose the skills that appeal to you the most, and experiment with others. Everything in the skill and abilities system comes down to the player’s choice.
You can access the skills menu by clicking on an ability slot on the character tab of the main menu. When clicked, the ability screen will appear where you will be able to equip, buy and upgrade abilities.
The first stage of abilities can be bought with either cash, or gold bars. They can then be equipped to one of the three ability slots for use in battle by clicking on the corresponding buttons. Abilities can then be moved to any slot the player chooses by right clicking on them.
As a player levels up, he will have the option to upgrade each of his abilities two more times. Upgraded skills increase the effectiveness of each ability, sometimes adding completely new statistics to it. Upgrading skills requires an increasing amount of cash or gold bars to acquire.
Once an ability has been bought, it can be accessed and re-equipped at the player’s discretion.
There are, generally, two types of skills: Passive and Active. Passive skills are always active. Once they are equipped, they will never be disabled or turned off during match play. These skills are primarily defensive or tactical improvements for the player, focusing on improving a player’s survival and success in combat. Active skills are triggered by pressing a hotkey while in a match. These skills are always special attacks that a player can deploy against his enemies. Active skills typically are limited in duration or in the number of times they may be deployed and have a recharge timer. Active skills are always refreshed when a player is defeated, so the only time a player should have to worry about running out of his active skills is if he’s dominating his opponents.
