This is a list of passive abilities in the game. The data is up to date as of patch 1.0.2.
Each character can have a total of 4 passives. 2 passives are automatically set from the character's current class, as long as they have spent the AP to unlock that passive ability. The remaining 2 can be selected from any passive the character has learned, regardless of their class. In the Missions and Monsters DLC, monsters can have up to 6 passives, 2 bound to their class and 4 extra bound to their two Variants. In the list below, those only available to Missions and Monsters DLC (either because the character only exists in DLC or because it requires an event in DLC) will have a mark in front of it.
