This also applies to loot that is found in chests. Players have two choices of weapons, "light" (Scythes) or "heavy" (miscellaneous) as well as the ability to preform magic through necromancy. As the game progresses, players are able to upgrade their equipment and unlock new skill through skill points that are awarded after either leveling up or completing certain quests.
