Divided into [Five Classes & Six Grades]:
Internal, Aura, Manifestation, World, & Divine.
Each category further divided into four grades:
Low, Standard, Superior, & Pinnacle.
Internal-based refers to self-contained art, typically one that relates to themselves/internal/channeling. An example would be an art that enhances one's physical agility, physical defenses, or senses.
Aura-based would use one's vital energy to create an aura/domain to affect or enhance one's abilities/affect your opponents.
Manifestation-based is to manifest your attacks or defenses into a solid construct, either Vital, Qi, or Soul-related. World-based is attacks that are on a grand scale, typically affecting a greater area.
Divine-based arts are unique arts with miraculous effects that are outside of standard means, typically forbidden and requires a cost to be used.
Master Level of each specific art is determined by four stages of success:
Initial Mastery --> Minor Mastery --> Major Mastery --> Perfection.
