you get them with guild marks that you get from doing the ~10 and ~20 guildleves.

Use the marks to buy special abilities and traits.
(much like crafting buys synthesis techniques from the guild)

EDIT: forgot to add....
you buy them with the guild marks from NPCs either in the guild in your city, or if your city does not have specified guild ... there is a representative NPC somewhere in the city that does. (atleast there was one in LL during CB)

Physical level 7, or rank 7 in the class you're playing? If you're rank 7, you should have gotten three abilities for DoM/DoW already.

You sure, because my rank 8 miner certainly don't have any abilities. I have three actions, but no abilities.

Miner is a DoL (Disciple of Land) not a DoM (Disciple of Magic) or DoW (Disciple of War) class.

The fact that we need to dig this deep on the internet to understand something that should be basic for the game is rather alarming.

I also got to rank 8 with no abilities, until I read about it in another site's guide, does anyone have found something remotely resembling a tutorial for this inside the game?

I'm pretty sure somewhere it shows you how to get to the abilities screen, not necessarily how to change/add them though.
And maybe its the nostalgia for me from XI but i like not having tutorials, fun figuring everything out on my own... well most of the time. *thinks back to not being able to move in XI for 15 mins since i didnt have my num lock on, so i ruled it out as to how to move for a while, fun times!*

Im sure the actual game manual will have a lot of info in it as to the basics though.

Whoops, brain ****, but the point still stands.

My 7 Galdiator has no abilities either. Again, several actions, no abilities.

Actually the main quest is suppose to teach u some of the basic interface, but SE reconginze it wasn't enough (in an interview somewhere).

The 1st part of the main quest where after visiting the 1st camp, u can speak to the starting NPC (the one that gave u a NPC linkpearl) she/he will tell you 2 short line of description regarding ability/trait + unlock 1 hidden skill.

Action: Gain as you level ur class

Trait: "Buy" with guild marks from the guilds

Ability: Involves in DoL/DoH, you get ur 1st ability at lvl 10. For DoL: Ability equip here will randomly active during logging/mining. For DoH: Ability will Randomly appear in ur list of action below the wait option

Very true. As this is beta we're only given some information as how things work. When in doubt, check the beta site manuals. Personally, I'm hoping the game manuals will be more helpful when it comes to crafting. :D

You're right; my wording was incorrect. Yes, you should have three actions. Abilities go in the bottom row, and you won't have any as Gladiator.
