Perks

From FOnline: Reloaded Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There are three types of Perks:

  • Level Perks
    • Max 8 per character (6 with Skilled Trait)
    • Ends at Level 24, but can be delayed through Level 29
    • On-screen indicator prompts player to choose
  • Support Perks
    • No hard maximum
    • Not Level-specific
    • No on-screen indicator
    • Available via NPC dialogue, even after Level 30
  • Weapon Perks - built into certain weapons

Level Perks

A Leveling Perk can be gained every 3 Levels normally, or every 4 Levels if the Character has the Skilled Trait. An on-screen Level indicator is shown when a character has leveled up, and anytime there are leftover Skill Points or a Leveling Perk to choose. Open the character screen to choose a Leveling Perk when applicable. Leveling Perks end at Level 24, so all player Characters are limited to 8 each, or 6 if Skilled, although choosing the last perk can be delayed until Level 29. At Level 30, any leftover perk choice options are lost.

Regardless of its type, gaining a perk permanently unlocks its bonus, e.g. gaining Lifegiver forever increases the character's number of Hit Points. Short of a Reroll, there is no possibility of reverting the choice of a perk once the decision has been made. It is entirely up to the player to decide whether or not to gain a perk when given the option; perks are not automatically or randomly selected in cases when the player does not choose.

Some perks have more than one rank, i.e. it is possible to gain them more than once. Typically, the higher the rank of a perk, the greater the bonus it gives. Requirements may vary for different ranks of a perk. Usually the higher the rank, the higher the skill/level requirements.

NOTE: When determining which perks can be gained, the game checks the character's SPECIAL statistics. It is therefore impossible for a character whose base Strength is 5, to take a perk requiring 6 or more points of Strength. Temporary boosts, like from Drugs, do not satisfy perk requirements.

NOTE: The player is not forced to choose Leveling Perks immediately, but these perks can be lost if the choice is delayed too long, so pay attention when leveling up, and don't lose any Perks. Perk choices do not accumulate, so if you delay choosing a perk long enough to earn another perk, you waited too long, and the first perk choice will be lost.
