This is information on the special skills that are available in the game. I've noted if you can train in it once you've bought the original level, but some skills cannot be trained in, so it's best to buy those up to level 5 as soon as possible, and if the price is cheap, then it's best to train up to Level 5 by purchasing it anyway, since this allows you to save a few skill points for other things.
