What is Skill?

Skills are abilities that are unique to each characters and used to draw a card, increase Life Points, and so on in a duel. Most of skills is activated only under a certain condition.

How to set skill

You can bring only 1 skill with your deck into a duel but can switch the one to the other in the deck setting menu. Note that you have to set a skill to a deck and achieve the trigger condition to use it.

#Procedure
1Visit Card Studio (a facility in a screenshot above).
2Move to Deck Edit screen.
3Tap Skill tab that is located above your deck.
4Choose a skill you want to use.

How to get skills

Level-up

One of the ways to obtain skills is leveling characters up. Each character can acquire up to three skills by reaching level 4, 13, 20 with except of Joey who gets his first skill at level 3 .

Duel reward

You can also get skills by winning a duel against Legend Duelists. What skill you find is associated with which character you use. If you find a skill that you already have again, it will be converted into gems. Some of reward skills, such as LP Boost skills and Draw Sense skills, are obtainable in common with some characters.

Skills by availalble character

Can I see the proof for Paradox getting Draw Sense: Spell/Trap? Both a close friend and I have gotten 30+ skill drops, with repeats on every single other one, and neither of us have that one.

So I can't get Destiny Draw on a character besides yami yugi? I had assumed it meant that only yugi would drop destint draw, and no other character. Therefore you could get destiny draw with any charactee as long as you are battling yugi. I assume this is wrong sadly

Guys, if I erase skill which I have learn, will it come again in DA reward? Or how many skills that we can keep? I wonder why I can't get "no mortal can resist" ishuzu's skill because of my skill space is full.

Restart skill VS duel, standby skill

When to use that skill for pvp and why? Give me a better answer. I am stuck at decision to use that two skill. Please help me
<< Anonymous(LZM)
Passerby 27days ago Reply
Restart is better when you need a certain card to be in your starting hand, example:gravekeeper recruiter, venus. Duel standby is better when you need a certain combo in your starting hand, example: naturia. But those two skill can replace each other, its just a matter of boosting consistency.

i see, so if i need blue eyes at starting hand so the best skill is restart? If i need 1 of 3 card for red eyes insight and 1 of 3 card for red eyes spirit,so the best skill is duel,standby?
<< Anonymous
Passerby 27days ago Reply
Yes, considering red eyes insight also search for red eyes spirit it will rarely bricked. Restart doesn't guarantee you have a better starting hand than initially, so use it wisely.
