The Soulmask you choose when creating your character will give a boost to some of your stats and combat abilities, and the choice you make should be governed by the style of combat you prefer in action survival and RPG games. That said, if you’re strongly into RP or just here for the excellent crafting and would prefer you choose by style, you can, especially if playing on a very easy level.  

The Civilization Mask
