Divinity Original Sin 2

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has a ton of different items and spells. You can create pretty much any character you want using its systems. A big part of that is the skills and skill books. A Divinity: Original Sin 2 Skill Book can be used to create specific skills using a set of different combinations. There are skill books for each kind of magic, and they each have their own effects.
