Core Skill Icon

Core Skills are the basic skills - they include skills that allow movement such as Feather Jump, the standard attacks such as Hack, and other combat skills such as Controlled Fall and Deflect.

Core skills are tied to weapons, not vocation, and so often do not need to be relearned when switching to a new vocation.

Use of core skills doesn't consume stamina, unlike other skills.
