Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Outside System Skills

Outside System Skills (OuSS): As its name suggests, are skills that are the users own, unlike Sword Skills and magic that are provided for by the game engine.

  • Switch: A technique where two Players switch positions in-between an enemy's attack to recover Hit Points, chain attacks together without worrying about an aftercast delay, and/or burden the learning abilities of enemies if they are AIs.
  • Hypersense: The act of sensing hostile intention or killer intent, allowing the user to somehow react to attacks done outside of their field of vision.
  • Distinguish: Allows the user to eliminate background noise to focus on unnatural or certain sounds around the user.
  • Sword Skill Imitation: Imitating the user of Sword Skills without the system's assistance, removing the aftercast delay, but sacrificing the power and speed of the actual skill.

Sword Skills

Sword Skills (SS): A series of movements that allows the user to attack much faster than they normally could, but the movements required to perform the Sword Skill are fixed and cannot be canceled by the user after they begin performing it. Contrary to their name, Sword Skills do not have to be used with a swordCannot be used in Alfheim Online pre-New Aincrad (Can only use imitations).


Magic: Allows the user to use race-unique and Alfheim standard magic. Agil, as a Gnome is naturally inclined towards earth-based magic. Alfheim Online (ALO) Agil only.
