Skill Tree - Origins

The skill tree in Assassin's Creed Origins.

The skill tree is an in-game user interface that allows the player to upgrade the abilities of Bayek of Siwa and Aya of Alexandria. A total of 60 skills can be unlocked and are assigned to one of 3 trees, Hunter, Seer, or Warrior. Skill points are earned every time the player conducts a microtransaction or gains 1000 XP. In turn, the points are used to unlock skills, which are either passive in nature or require a command prompt to be activated. The path through the trees is not linear, with players able to allocate points anywhere as they see fit so long as they have one linked ability unlocked, and some abilities can even be linked across trees. With the sole exception of Animal Taming, no skill has an absolute requirement of another particular prerequisite.[1][2]
