Knowledge

Knowledge points in Fractured are used to teach player characters new talents and unlock new levels of proficiencies.

In Fractured Online, Knowledge Points can be seen as a meter of your personal progression, which you acquire over time while playing the game and especially by going to areas you have not been yet. Once you reach enough Knowledge Points, you will be promoted to the next rank. The rank will define how many Talent Points you can use and your maximum Proficiency in a school, which will determine how powerful your Skills of that school will be.

Earning

Earning Knowledge Points is possible in a few ways. You can find a complete list here: List of KP possibilities.

KP Sharing

Finding resources or exploring areas will always give the full amount of KP, no matter how many players are in your party. This is not true for killing monsters. In this case the number of players and the challenge rating of the monster will matter.The sharing of KP is based on a target amount of players which are expected to participate in a kill of a certain monster. The higher the difficulty of the monster, the higher the number of expected players. As long as you are within this number, each additional party member after the first one will reduce the total amount gained by each one by 10%. This means that if 2 players kill a monster, each will receive 90% of the full amount. A party of 3 will receive 80% of the full amount to each party member. As long as you keep your party numbers under the target value, the sharing of KP is very generous. For each additional party member over the target number, each party member will get 20% less KP. So in the previous case if the target number was 3, adding a fourth member would mean that each one is now gaining only 50% of the full amount. With five members, each one would receive only 30%. Note that the knowledge system is not a leveling system, so no matter what your rank is, you will always get the same amount of KP from a certain monster. This means that there is a fixed amount of kills you have to score on a certain mob to reach the full knowledge of it, regardless of your rank. After you reached that amount, you will get no more KP from it. The target number of party members and the kills required to reach full knowledge of the monster can be found in the following tables:

Target number of party members per challenge rating
Challenge Rating Target Number
1 1
2 1
3 2
4 2
5 3
6 3
7 4
8 4
9 5
10 6
Kills required for full knowledge of the monster
Challenge Rating Required number of kills
1 20
2 40
3 40
4 40
5 30
6 30
7 20
8 20
9 20
10 20

Note that some particularly rare monsters require only half the amount of kills expressed in this table. In that case, you will find the indication "Requires Only Half of Kills: Yes" in the monster page of this wiki.

Talent Tree

Talent Tree Fractured Resized.jpg

At a superficial look, this is not much different from a canonical MMORPG talent system. The amount of Talent points you have access to depends on your Rank. The Talent Points you have – up to 60 – can then be assigned to the nodes of your Talent Tree. The latter is divided into six branches, each focused on one of the main character attributes, plus six “hybrid” branches.

Unlike other MMORPGs, Talent Points can be re-assigned as many times as needed during a Resting phase (by sitting down in front of a fire to change all your Talents to match the stats and abilities of your character). You can also handily save pre-defined configurations.

Ability Learning

Fractured Online's magical and combat abilities are obtained through discovery.

Abilities menu.png

When you open your Character Abilities window for the first time, most of the abilities listed in each School are in an Undiscovered state (greyed out). To discover that skill, you have to study a creature which uses that skill. To study a creature you have to find where it lives and hunt it down until your knowledge of that creature reaches a specific threshold and you discover that skill. Beware though, as most abilities are only associated to a specific family of monsters, which reside in a specific continent of one of the three planets. Not all skills are available on all continents. Once you have discovered that skill, you can include it in any skill preset.
