Does the Apple pencil need any extra hardware to draw shades and tilted lines on an iPad Pro?

An Apple employee at my local Apple store told me that I need an extra $30 adapter (that fits over the tip of the Apple pencil) to draw shades, pressures and tilted lines.

I cannot find anywhere on your web site that talk of any such adaptor. Please clarify.

    The Pencil works great right out of the box. No need for any extras. In fact, it comes with a replacement tip in the event that you wear out the original. It performs really well and shading is super easy and integrated. It's also pressure sensitive, so you can shade in varying levels of concentration and boldness. Worth it, in my opinion. Even if it's just to edit PDF's... so useful.
