PH3 Debut: Skill Powers In-Depth

Shazbot (aka Josh) pointed out that skill powers are in the latest Character Builder update…neat! Skill powers are a suite of utility powers that you can choose from as long as you’re high enough level and are trained in the skill. There are no other requirements demanded, meaning its similar […]
