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

What is the droprate %?

Can you still get them from legendary duelists?

I don't know the rate, but you can still get new skills from the LDs. But I think you have more of a chance if you have been using a character longer, if that even makes sense. They made it so you can't get duplicate skills, but it also seems like the droprate is less.

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.
Anonymous 5days ago
Being able to buy 1 skill total for each character with gold would be welcome.

The droprates are next level low.

There is no one "best" Skill, what Skill to use depends on the deck :)

Most decks like Restart, but there are decks that prefer "Life Boost Alpha" (usually decks that needs high LP to function) or other Skills (for example, running Exodia deck pretty much locks you into using Yugi Muto's "Grandpa's Cards" Skill.)

I'm assuming you didn't notice there's a second page, huh. It's only missing Jesse I believe, which makes sense, since he's pretty new.

Casual Duel skills drop rate is terrible. Need to be increased not decrease

Skill drop rate from ANYWHERE (casual, ranked, LDs) is terrible, period.

Konami really should increase the drop rate of Skills.....

Also, let us trade the regular shared Skill (like the Draw Senses and LP Boost ones) for another regular shared Skill.
I have Draw Sense Spell/Trap on my Alexis, but I want LP Boost Alpha instead, I want to play Aromage with Alexis....
