Feats
Feats are a new addition to Ashen Empires. To access them, you need to have the Tides of Fate expansion as well as player level 100. If you do, press "I" in game to bring up the feat window.


Kinds of Feats
There are two general kinds of feats: passive and active. Passive feats give bonuses that will apply automatically. For example, the Body Magic feat Lay Hands gives a bonus 5% healing per point for all healing spells. This applies whenever you cast a healing spell without the need to activate the feat.

Active feats require that you use them in combat to activate them. Active feats often have a timer which you can see on the icon.

Obtaining a Feat
You are not restricted to the number or kind of feats you can learn! To gain a feat, you first need to get enough experience for a feat point. Feat experience can be earned any way that you gain overall player level experience: crafting, quests, combat, etc. When you open you Feat window, move the slider to a %. This will split how much experience goes to overall level and how much goes to feat experience.

For example: I just turned level 100 and I want to get a feat point fast! I open the feat window and move the Feat slider to 100%. From now on until I change the slider, all of my experience will go towards Feat experience instead of my level. Once I have a feat, I decide now I want to focus on reaching level 101. I move the slider to 0%. I won't get any experience for feats.

Once you reach 110, all experience earned will automatically go towards Feats.


Using a Feat
To use an active Feat, drag the Feat icon from the Feat window to a Hotbar. Equip the correct weapon. Press the Icon or corresponding Hotbar key to activate the feat.

Feats on a Hotbar

For example: To use the Small Blades feat Backfist, drag the Backfist icon to a Hotbar. Equip a small blade weapon such as a dirk. The feat will be greyed out on the Hotbar unless you have the correct weapon type equipped.

Your skill level doesn't matter when it comes to feats. You can have level 0 in Small Blades and still be able to train and use the Small Blades feat.
