4.4.5 Traits

What are traits?
Traits are a way to customise your character beyond the basic choices of race
and statistics. By selecting various perks and advantages, you can enhance your
day-to-day life in Achaea from roleplay to combat to crafting. Some examples of
the benefits traits can provide are: increasing the rate at which you recover
balance, or increasing the durability of clothing that you craft.

Each trait falls into one of three categories:

        MAJOR TRAITS  - Wide-reaching combat advantages.
                      - Gained at levels 20, 50, and 80.
                      - May carry slight disadvantages.

        MINOR TRAITS  - Smaller utility or roleplay enhancing advantages.
                      - Gained at levels 30, 40, 60, 70, 90.

        RACIAL TRAITS - Special traits tied to each player race.
                      - These are granted to you automatically and do not
                        take up a trait slot.

Please note that some traits conflict with one another, or they may have
special requirements, such as a minimum level requirement or another
prerequisite trait. Not every trait is useful for every character, but there
are many to choose from.
