Cook / Mix † - This skill is learned during the tutorial. Once learned, a player can use this skill to mix ingredients to make different assortments of food, potions and other goodies. There are many recipes, but please do not give away recipes in public chat, as this is considered a spoiler.
Craft † - This skill is learned during the tutorial. Once you have a blueprint of an item, you can use this skill to craft the item from the blueprint. Some items are harder to craft and require more raw materials. Both int and dex will increase your chance of success when crafting an item.
Create blueprints † - This skill gives a player the ability to make blueprints of items, using blueprint kits, in order to craft the items afterwards. Blueprint kits are easily available from Loomer in Goadlo once the skill is learned.
Egg Frying - This allows a player to fry up some delicious eggs for dining on. This uses up 1 of whatever egg is fried. Using the skill requires a pan to use; however, the pan is not used up when you fry the egg. The type of cooked egg produced varies with your skill level.
Fishing - By using a fishing pole, this skill enables player to go fishing. The player must be next to or on a water tile. Players can use a few types of bait to catch certain fish. The rarer the bait, the rarer the fish gets. Your skill level determines your chance of failure and sometimes failure produces non-fish items.
Gem crimping † - This skill allows you to merge gems with various items. To do so use a magical gem in your inventory.
Gem cutting † - This skill allows you to cut gems from "raw gems". Use your gem cutter to do this. This skill is influenced by dexterity, intelligence and skill level.
Heal others † - This skill enables the player to heal other players, either in location chat or outside, using a button on the player's information popup.

When you are healing someone in battle, you are restricted healing that player once per battle.
Herbal harvesting - This skill enables the player to gather herbs in NEAB. All these herbs can be mixed to create potions that can help players. The player will need a sickle to do this.
Looting - Dead body looting is done by simply walking over the dead body of a fallen NEaBian. You gain a certain % of the gold they lost in the fight when they died there. The exact amount of gold gained is determined by your skill level. At a maximum you can gain 30% of the gold the player has lost. This can also be done to your own body as well.
Mining - This skill is learned during the tutorial. If you have a pick equipped, you can mine for metals. You can walk into rocks in the underground mines to get metal. Sometimes your efforts are not rewarded with metal, though. The average distribution of the types of ingots mined (iron, gold, or platinum) depends on your skill. The amount of ingots gained varies and is generally higher the greater your skill and the greater your strength and dexterity; however, there is a cap on the amount of ingots mined. Praying to the gods can also have an effect.
Pickpocket † - With this skill, players can attempt to steal gold from other players. This can be done in location chats. High dex will increase your chance of success, while high int will protect you from other players using this skill. Each player gets a max amount of attempts each day and can only attempt to pickpocket the same person once per day. Beware, though, that if caught, the victim can report the attempt to the castle guard, and the thief must pay a fine of 1500 gold the next time he/she enters Castle Soupir.
