List of PvE-only skills

Disambig icon.png "Pve skill" and "List of pve skills" redirects here. For skills that have a PvP version, see List of PvE versions of skills. For temporary skills available in PvE, see List of temporary skills.

PvE-only skills are only accessible to roleplaying characters and only usable in PvE areas. PvE-only skills can be learned by a roleplaying character, but cannot be unlocked for the account. A character can only equip three PvE-only skills at a time.

Some titles provide passive PvE-only effects when selected in the hero panel. See Title (skill type) for a list of those effects.

Some special skills are available while playing in PvE areas. Although only available in PvE, those are not considered PvE skills by game mechanics.
