Each level, and there are 200 levels to gain, players receive improvement points to spread among 75 different skills. There is no rush to spend points, its fine to just let them build up so if you’re uncertain what weapon you want to specialize in just yet, don’t allocate points. Everyone who really gets into the game should go online and read a detailed guide about their profession but I’ll try to quickly explain the skill breakdown here. 75 skills may sound daunting at first but the way they are broken down makes them much easier to manage.

The first 6 represent the 6 attributes: Strength, Stamina, Sense, Agility, Intelligence, and Psychic. The rest are broken into 9 categories; body, melee weapons, misc weapons, ranged, speed, trade & repair, nano & aiding, spying, and navigation.
