Starting at level 10, the Dark Templar can begin investing feat points to gain new abilities and spells, strengthen existing abilities, and specialize how he/she functions. Refer to the entry on Feats for more information about the Feat system.

Dark Templar feat trees Edit

The Dark Templar's two unique feat trees are Depravity, focusing on combo-orientated feats, and Desecration, focusing on spell-orientated feats. Being of the Soldier archetype, the Templar also has access to the Soldier feat tree - a general tanking and survival line.

Which tree the Templar invests points in determines his or her role in parties and raids. Depravity Templars mainly focus on DPS, while Desecration Templars excel in their healing and tanking roles.

Please note that while the game is still in beta stages, these feats should not be seen as the final product. It's a work-in-progress.
