KoA: Re-Reckoning New Player Help
There are 9 Skills of 10 levels each in Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning and since the level cap is 40, you should at least get to max out 4 by the game's end. Try to take advantage of the racial bonuses available when creating the character to help you plan out your build.
Each time you level up you get a point to spend to Might, Sorcery or Finesse. There is no limitation on the combination of points and you can mix between classes as you see fit.
Each time you level up in Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, you'll be prompted to select a Destiny. These works as classes in the game, giving you different passive bonuses. You can see all the Destinies in-game in the Destinies Tab and you can change it anytime there as long as you meet the requirements of the Destiny you are selecting. If you decide to change your play style, you can seek a Fateweaver and pay him to refund all your Skill and Ability points so you can respec your character.
Jack of All Trades
Try to spread your skill points at first, so you can be able to do a bunch of things early on, and then try to focus on 3 or 4 Skills.
Buy health potions
When playing harder difficulties, buy health potions anytime you can. You will use a lot and if you are in a long dungeon without health potions, traveling back and forth to restock can become very annoying.
Try to get the house on Webwood (Gossamer End) as soon as you can. This will allow you to store up to 200 items there. Buy Backpacks to increase your carrying capacity.
