Jump to: navigation, search

Skills and Perks are used by the player's to increase their effectiveness with many different Game Mechanics (although not all of them). They can make the player more proficient with certain type of weapons. They can help the player collect resources at a higher rate with Mother Lode (Perk), or teach the player to craft new items or higher quality items. Skills and Perks are the player's way of progressing in 7 Days to Die, and is a very important part of surviving.

Skill points are awarded every Character Level, granting the player 1 skill point each Character Level to increase the level of Attributes and Perks. Skill points can also be acquired from completing Quests.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

There are 5 main Attributes: Perception, Strength, Fortitude, Agility, Intellect, each having 10 levels requiring one skill point and gives a bonus in that category with every level. The difference between Attributes and Perks are that Attributes must be learned first, as most Perks require a certain level of Attribute, which also require a certain Character Level.

Perks[edit | edit source]

Perks are used to more effectively and immediately to affect the player's ability to do things. This can range from giving a flat bonus damage to shotguns using Shotgun Messiah (Perk) or teach the player a new ability such as Master Chef (Perk). Perks also require a certain level in either the Character Level, or a level of a certain Skill. For example a player must achieve level 20 before the option is available to purchase the Advanced Engineering (Perk).
