Gives bonus to speed and extra chances to receive stat increases on level ups.
This is a passive skill. It is used to raise your physical attributes by training your muscles and movement powers. Whenever you raise a level, this skill influences your chance to raise a physical attribute. Athletics works especially well for characters with low stats.
Athletics also affect your speed score. At 70+ you gain +1 to speed, at 75 you gain +2 to speed, at 80 you gain +3 to speed, at 85 you gain +4 to speed, at 90 you gain +5 to speed, at 95 you gain +6 to speed and at 100 you gain +8 to speed.
Speed bonus is obvious from manual.
The skill passively trains some stats — Strength, Dexterity, Appearance and possibly Toughness — often making them more likely to receive increases when the character levels up. If this does not give immediate increase, there is a small chance of receiving extra raises even afterward.
The skill appears to train itself; there are no certain circumstances known that result in the skill being trained.
