Ability can be changed at any time by just changing gear. If you want to be a spell caster instead of a warrior, you only need to wear a casting staff instead of a sword.
All skills in Albion Online are associated with gear as well. These skills are applied on gear when you actually craft the item, and most items are crafted, or when the item actually drops. Some items will drop from humanoid enemies, so if you see a guy using a bow, there’s a chance he can drop a bow of his relevant tier. For example, if he’s a tier five enemy, he can drop a tier five bow.
Skills change also depends on items. Spear is going to have a different skill set to a bow although they are considered under that similar style of being a ranger or being a hunter. In addition, when you craft your own gear, you have choice to decide which skills you want it to have. More skills become available as you progress.
It goes the same way with armor. There are several types of armor in Albion Online and each of them has a various types of skills as mention in this beginner guide. You can have a choice to choose which skills you want through crafting as well. For example, when you craft a chest armor, you have choice either you want to have self-healing skill or a berserker buff.
Crafting can be quite expensive but it’s a good way of an investment. And it’s going to be the main focus on the game since classes are entirely dependent on gear. Because of this, Albion Online character progression is very complex.
