May the force be with you.

I farmed bakura for very long time. Got >10 for all SR and necrofear. Still lacking 3rd trance. Gave up after I replaced his archfiend deck with other meta decks.

Good luck dude, I got his "shadow game" skill while he is at below lvl 10 and while casually auto duel LD in duel world.

You should try PVP, the skill drop is higher in PVP.

Did they nerf the crap put of the droprate of skills?

What is the droprate %?

Can you still get them from legendary duelists?

My Bakura recently became lvl 40 so that should qualify as using a character longer i guess.

That should help, but it is hard to tell. I have everything for Aster lv. 42, but Mai is 44 and is still missing some skills.

The droprates fro LD's are very inconsistent. I've gone months not getting any, but then got 3 skill drops over the past two days from farming Crawler during this point bonus event.
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
I read it was about 0.5% per drop against LDS (i.e. per 1000 points scored) and unlike SR/UR card drops it doesn't depend on the LD's level so 10 and 40 have the same chance of dropping a skill.

It may be a different in PvP duels (I suspect it's better) and it may depend on how many skills there are left to get.
