Starfield Instigation skill overview

The Starfield Instigation skill is a tier 3 skill in the Social skill tree. It, as with all Starfield skills, has 4 ranks, beginning at rank 1 and ending at rank 4. In order to progress up the Instigation skill tree, you will need to complete various skill challenges related to the skill in question, and increase your Starfield level to earn skill points. Each rank requires a skill point to unlock.

The Instigation skill allows you to force NPCs to attack their allies for a short time. As you rank up this skill you can use it on higher level enemies, with the final rank forcing the target NPC to attack their allies until they are dead.

This skill is a great way to manipulate your enemies to attack each other, saving yourself ammo and potentially giving you the upper hand in combat.
