Specializations - Midkemia Online Online Help

8.3 Specializations

Specializations are the choice a class has for their third (called tertiary) skill, chosen at level 20. Whereas the first two skills are determined solely by Class, the third represents a choice in how the player wishes to specialize.

Some specializations are open to everyone of that class, and others are restricted in some way -- though you must be at least Level 20 to learn a Specialization.

The exception to this are Priests, whose specialization is always determined by their Divine Order. To learn a different specialization, a Priest must join a different Divine Order. See HELP GODS to learn more about the Gods and their Divine Orders.
