Misc ability trees stand alone from any one weapon type and can be used in a variety of builds. There are three Misc categories. These appear as green areas on the outer ring of the Ability Wheel.
- Main article: Survivalism
Survivalism focuses on personal survival and the ability to escape and live through situations they may not have otherwise. Compared to the group-friend abilities in Subversion and Turbulence, abilities found in survivalism are of particular use to solo and Player vs. Player players, with its focus on self healing, movement and crowd-control negation.
- Main article: Turbulence (Cell)
Turbulence focuses on the ability to manipulate 'Hate' - the Secret World's unit of measurement for how much an enemy considers a player threatening. The higher an enemy's Hate for a player, the more likely they are to single that player out first before dealing with any other foes. Unlike Subversion, however, Turbulence is intended to increase Hate, rather than decrease it, drawing the enemy's attention towards the player, and encouraging them to leave weaker allies alone.
- Main article: Subversion
Subversion focuses on the ability to manipulate 'Hate' - the Secret World's unit of measurement for how much an enemy considers a player threatening. The higher an enemy's Hate for a player, the more likely they are to single that player out first before dealing with any other foes. Unlike Turbulence, however, Subversion is intended to reduce Hate, rather than increase it, drawing the enemy's attention away from the player, and encouraging them to target someone else.
Subversion will allow the player to erase portions of Hate, generate less of it, and even transfer Hate they've generated to a larger, stronger ally. Higher-level abilities will reward players with the ability to boost their damage potential, punishing enemies for taking their eyes of them for even a moment.
