  • Crit – Increases critical strike chance by certain %. 
  • Specialization – Bonuses from this speciality differs for each class, but generally it increases effects(damage, cooldown, recovery etc.) of your special and awakening skills .
  • Swiftness – Increases attack, movement and cooldown recovery speed.
