Profiles gives an added boost in combat. As skills are unlocked over the course of the game, players will also start gaining access to the profiles system, choosing from up to seven unique types of profiles that add bonuses to suit their play style. The more invested in certain skill groups, the higher the level of related profiles that will be unlocked. It can be accessed from the Main Menu.
Profiles can be swapped at any time, keeping the action fresh, giving players numerous ways to approach every battle, and ensuring they never feel locked into a particular style of play. Players can also create favorites, which represent a quick way to map three powers and a single profile to one slot. At any time during combat, the player can switch between four favorite slots, giving access to up to 12 powers and 4 profiles during the course of a single fight.

The profile unlocked by the corresponding training will be available at Rank 1 for the entire game.
The Explorer profile doesn't correspond with any of the training choices. You can only unlock the Explorer profile by spending the required skill points.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Resetting skill points also resets all profiles except the corresponding profile chosen during Character customization, which returns to Rank 1. Further ranks and all of the other previously attained profiles will need to be unlocked again by spending skill points.
