Right now, in our Beta, our combat system is very simple. You will know your Faction, Class, and Utility from Character Creation. A good rule of thumb is to have your character be skilled in their Class tree, one Faction Talent tree, and one Weapon tree (for Rogues and Warriors) or their Class tree, and two Spell trees (for Mages.) Combat on S&S is currently moderated by Staff, and the frequency of power use is on the grounds of 'be reasonable.' Staff will perform the rolls on the backend, and provide narration of the outcomes at the top of each Combat Round. A good rule of thumb for frequency of Talent use is about one per round, with exception of pointing out Passive abilities.

This is the basic structure of the trees for each Class tree, Talent tree, Weapon tree, and Spell tree in our game.

You will likely need to reference the Dragon Age Wikia for detailed rules on what each listed power does. They are listed in left to right order of progression.
