Square Enix shared the latest details and screenshots for Dragon Quest X Offline today, which focuses entirely on the RPG’s Character Builder. This overview primarily covers the use of skills.

Here’s the full rundown, courtesy of Gematsu:

Character Builder

– The game lets you develop the hero and your party members via the “Character Builder”
– Unlock panels by using the Skill Points you earn as you level up to learn new abilities, spells, and Coup de Graces, as well as gain skill effects
– Which panels you unlock is up to you
– Skill Points can be spent at any time from the “Skill Settings” menu under “Tactics”
– Each character’s Character Builder starts from the center panel
– New panels can be unlocked from there
– The panel displays the names of the abilities you can learn and the points required to unlock them
– If you have enough Skill Points to unlock an adjacent panel, you can learn the ability, spell, or skill effect that the panel represents
– There is no fixed order for unlocking panels

Secret Panels

– The Character Builder has special “Secret Panels” marked with a “?” which by unlocking the surrounding panels will reveal a powerful ability or spell you can learn

Skill-Up Panels

– The game lets you level up skills and spells by inserting a special “Skill-Up Panel” in an empty slot surrounding the abilities and spells you wish to enhance
– Use this feature to further strengthen your moveset
– Skill-Up Panels have ranks
– The higher the rank, the higher the level increase
– If you come into possession of a high rank Skill-Up Panel, use it to further strengthen your abilities, spells, and skill effects

The Hero Has a Skill Tree for Each Weapon Type

– The hero has a skill tree for each equippable weapon type
