Passive skills are skills possessed by all three character classes in Torchlight. They do not require any activation, do not expend your mana pool, and are active at all times. The only differences carried by passive skills between classes are the level requirements for each rank in the skill. The destroyer, for instance, can gain ranks in Dual Wielding before either the alchemist or the vanquisher.
The following table lists all the passive skills and the level requirements for each class to obtain the first rank in them.

|Defensive Spell Mastery||10||10||10|
