# 1 Player Ability List
01-29-2010, 10:04 PM
Player abilities are abilities captains know, that are much like BO abilities. I shall investigate further! You also cannot put points into abilities, and instead must buff them via your player skills.

Abilities now unlock during a tier. The level listed indicates that you should spend ALL of your skill points you've earned up to that point.

Every active skill you learn are upgraded at the beginning of the next rank, from I to II, and II to III. The max rank of an active skill seems to be III.
