Grim Dawn's skill classes are known as Masteries.  Each Mastery has its own skill tree which represents the various character archetypes within the game. On reaching level 2, a player chooses a Mastery for their character to specialize in. At level 10, a second and final mastery may be chosen to complement the first choice and create a dual-class character.
