Skills are really important for people that strive to reach the top. It can turn the tables on a Battleground and can prevent wipes during Dungeons. It also increases your Might Rating a lot (remember that the top 10 might rating players for each class receives a title and a costume every week).
This page will be focusing more on Special Skills than Skills, since the system is more complex then normal skills.
Players unlock skills after reaching a certain level (until level 50, which is the last skill the player can learn). During the leveling process, players will receive skill points and can increase the level of already known skills to enhance the skill effects.
(From left to right: Currently Available Skill Points / Skill Points Spent / Maximum Skill Points)
Not only that, for each skill there is a Cultivation system, which is Arcane Arts:
For each skill, there will be a new tree that can provide additional effects or enhance an already existing effect of that skill.
Some of the enhancements will have a lock and will require players to unlock it by exchanging their Annex Benediction at their respective class Skill Trainer (All classes Skill Trainers are in the same location) [Sidus Ur | 1618, 1288, 91].
For lesser cultivation books, the player will spend 8 Annex Benediction. For advanced cultivation books, it will require huge amounts.
There are three different special skill ratings:
- 1 Star: The ones you obtain during tutorial/story quests.
- 2 Star: The ones you can buy using Special Skill Pages
- 3 Star: The ones you can buy using Special Skill Broken Seals
NOTE: Players can receive one 3-star skill for free on the 7th consecutive login (the event starts automatically upon character creation).
You can buy 2-star skills at the Demonslayer Bookseller Ninis Zu (Sidus Ur | 2094, 1580, 183), not only that but you can buy 2-star and 3-star skills at the Immortal Annex Bookseller (Big Brother) Usveex Peos (Immortal Annex | 3050, 302, 137)
