Darksiders 2’s skill trees revealed
Publisher THQ has provided us with the skill trees for the upcoming Darksiders 2.
The skills that protagonist Death can learn are split into two seperate section. Loosely speaking, the Necromancer Tree is based on magic attacks while the Harbinger Tree focuses on melee combat.
Players can unlock skills in both trees throughout the campaign, allowing you to mix and match abilities that suit your play style.
