Certain quests, upon their completion, will award skills. These skills do not cost any gold nor require a skill point. The skills available through skill quests may also be acquired through skill trainers later on in the game, but at a cost of gold and one skill point. In Factions, only Canthan characters may undertake skill quests.
Due to the mounting cost of skills from Skill Trainers, it is ideal to pursue skill quests. While viewing a Skill Trainer's available skills for purchase, it can be difficult to know what skills may be attainable through later or earlier/missed quests. Below is a list for each profession containing all skills that can be acquired through skill quests. Do note that for Core skills, it is sometimes only available as a skill reward in just one or two campaigns; not all of them.
