Menu knowledge.png

The Knowledge interface

Knowledge (or proficiency) is a set of skills the player can invest points in to gain additional attributes. After reaching level 5, the Knowledge menu is unlocked, allowing the player to start allocating earned points to various skill trees. Each knowledge are categorized in tiers, unlocked by investing the maximum number of points in the previous tier.

Knowledge categories[]

There are four types of knowledge: gather, combat, workshop, and social.

Leveling[]

Each category has its own experience meter and points. Knowledge experience is gained from performing the corresponding action, such as gathering scraps to gain gathering experience or socializing with Sandrock citizens to gain social experience. There are 25 levels per category. Upon reaching the next level of a specific category tree, one skill point can be expended to that respective category; each category has its own skill points allocation, for example: gathering points cannot be invested in the combat tree. Each experience bar resets back to 0, while also adding an increment of 40 experience points per level.
