The developers have also added the rest of the spells to the scroll system, with these spells you'll be able to level spells normally while using them along with increasing their gains with the spell scrolls.

There has also been some changes with racial skills that include some minor tweaks along with some new skills that include, but not limited to longer buffs and debuffs for Humans and increased damage with bows for Mirdain. All the races have had their racial skills tweaked with some having entirely new skills added as well.
