There are a multitude of abilities in DoC, some of which stemming from a set path, offering stat boosts specific to that path. Other abilities can only be obtained by meeting certain conditions, or by abstaining from certain actions. Abilities may also be obtained throughout the story, via decisions and actions made by the player. There are also some Abilities that are gained passively, either due to the player's current stats, the region they are exploring, or simply given to the player during certain times. Finally, there are a total of 4 (four) abilities that the Player may earn upon completing the game and reaching one of the endings. These abilities are classified as "Memories" and carry over to subsequent "New Game+" Saves, offering various, permanent upgrades. It is possible to have all 4 (four) Memories at once, by completing the game multiple times and earning each of the Memories. Note that a single Memory does not stack with itself, as they are unique in this way.
When the Player gains a Level-Up, they gain 2 Stat Points & 1 Ability Point. This Ability Point can be spent to obtain a new ability, or to upgrade an already obtained ability to a new rank. Some Abilities can also 'Evolve' upon reaching maximum rank, granting even stronger stats.
CLICKING ON THE NAMES OF THE ABILITIES WILL LEAD YOU TO A PAGE DESCRIBING THAT ABILITY IN FURTHER DETAIL.
