Abilities are special moves that Stella can unlock by using Obols on shrines. Shrines are scattered across the world in different locations, each offering a different ability for the cost of 2 Obols. Some abilities will unlock special blueprints for structures to place on Stella's boat.
Many locations, resources, and treasures will be inaccessible to Stella without specific abilities. At Kalstein Mines, speaking with the denizen standing outside the mine will make this explicitly clear, adding the Shenanigan "Training Wheels" to the Captains Log. For this quest, Stella is required to learn Double Jump, Glide, Zipline before entering the mine.
