As your hero progresses through the story, they will discover many special abilities that they can use in combat. There are four types of special ability in DestinyQuest. These are: speed (sp), combat (co), modifier (mo) and passive (pa) abilities:
Speed abilities usually influence how many dice you can roll for your attack speed or reduce the number of dice that your opponent can roll for speed.
Combat abilities influence your damage score by boosting attributes or rolling extra dice. They also allow you to block or dodge your opponent’s attacks.
Modifier abilities allow you to boost certain attributes (such as brawn or magic), heal your hero or allow you to re-roll dice.
Passive abilities allow you to do continuous damage each round, for the duration of a combat. Examples include venom and bleed.
