PASSIVE SKILLS

Passive Skills are split into two categories. Some are always active – like Deadeye, a Helmet skill that increases your Critical Hit chance with bows. Others are triggered by certain actions, like the Savagery skill, which decreases your active skills’ cooldown every time you make an off-hand weapon attack.

Passive Skills can only be found on the Defensive Items in your Inventory, such as your Helmets, Breastplates, Gloves, and Greaves. Passive Skills are not triggered manually and they usually serve as a supplement to your weapons.
