The following is a list of Passive Skills in Outward.
For active skills, see Active Skills.
Passive skills provide passive effects, usually related to the player's stats, though they can also have other unique effects.
- You can have up to a maximum of 3 breakthrough passive skills.
- Faction-exclusive passives are granted through quests within factions. Joining a faction will exclude you from passives exclusive to other factions.
- Tier 3 passives require the breakthrough unlocked on that tree before they can be unlocked themselves.
