Talents are a unique ability that allow a character to perform extraordinary deeds. These deeds cannot be done by just anyone, and are primarily based on that particular creature's Class. Every Talent can be found in a Talent Tree, which is a collection of Talents with similar functions.

At 1st level and every odd-numbered Heroic Level thereafter (3rd, 5th, 7th, etc.), a character gains a Talent from any one of the Talent Trees available to the Heroic Class or Prestige Class. Any Talent in the Tree may be chosen, but the prerequisites (If any) must be met. No Talent can be chosen more than once unless expressly indicated.

Talent Trees, in general, can be divided into two primary types: Class Talent Trees, and Force Talent Trees. Class Talent Trees are Talent Trees that are only available to specific Heroic Classes, or Prestige Classes, and are noted on this page.
