Default Skills

These skills are granted automatically as you gain levels. The effects of many of these skills are improved in various ways by your choice of specialization and how you spend your trait points. Some skills may also be replaced by an improved version of the same skill as you increase in level.

Stance Skills

Based on your current Stance, these skills change into one of three different versions.

These manuals do not require the Minstrel and the trainee to be in proximity of each other, as Mentoring does.
For example, Mentor- Horn-icon.png Mentor : Horn becomes Scribe Manual - Horn-icon.png Scribe Manual : Horn, which allows you to create a Manual of the Horn.

The cooldown also extends to 10 days.


Mounted Combat Skills

These skills can be used only while riding a war-steed, and only while in the regions of East Rohan, Wildermore, and West Rohan. Passive skills which improve the war-steed's defensive capabilities remain effective even in other regions, but serve only to prevent forced dismount due to enemy attacks.
