Ponyvania: Order of Equestria Wiki

Each race possesses a number of skills that can be used to battle enemies. There are two types of Skills: Active and Passive. Active Skills are direct attacks that are powered up as they deal damage. Active Skills grow at different rates but when they are finally powered up, they receive a 20% increase in power as well as other bonuses. The damage dealt by skills is determined by the skill's power and the user's Intelligence. Passive Skills grant a beneficial effect while equipped. These effects can range from boosting a stat to summoning a familiar. The higher the player's level, the greater the effect of all Passive Skills.

Earth Pony Active Skills[]

As Earth Ponies have lower Intelligence and rely primarily on their main weapons, Earth Pony skills tend to be less powerful and are mostly used to attack enemies from a distance. Their skills consist of special weapons, each one with a different effect or use.
