The Game - Professions Details


Professions
  • The seven professions available at launch are Armortech, Weapontech, Biotech, Chemist, Inventor, Harvester, and Soldier for Hire.
  • You can do ALL professions but only specialize in one main profession.
  • You can get up to 200 out of 1000 skill levels in all professions.
  • The maximum skill for your main profession is 1000.
  • In order to obtain and advance professions, you will need to find the NPC trainers who are specialists in the profession you wish to learn.
  • You can change to a new main profession at any time, however, doing so will reset your current main profession to a maximum of 200 skill levels. (Your level won't change if you're at less than 200.)
  • Your profession skill level cannot exceed your overall skill points, meaning that you cannot be at level 200 in your profession if your character has only 199 skill points.
Materials
  • Materials can be obtained through Harvesting, Vendors, Trading or Salvaging existing items.
  • Salvaging will return the same materials made to make the item, but in diminished amounts.
  • Failed attempts to create an object will not result in the loss of materials.
  • The quality of materials used to create an item directly affect the grade of that item.

Schematics
  • You can learn schematics of any skill level, but need to have the appropriate skill to be able to make an item.
  • You can reverse engineer an item to get its schematic. Please note that reverse engineering does not give you the raw materials back as in salvaging.
  • Schematics can be stolen from other factions. This is accomplished by stealth/spy classes.
  • Some items cannot be reverse engineered.
