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.

Quick Question Guys -

What is the Total Number of Skills a Duelist Can have?

Reason for asking is For Bastion I currently have 10 (Draw Sense + Field Spells for Earth, Fire Water Wind, Dark which is 10 Total) - I want to try to make him learn Light as well but if that goes over 10 - will i be able to or is 10 the most I can have? (Also same applies for Other duellists as well - both DM and GX)

Thanks in advance

Isn't the capacity unlimited?

The limit is less about a raw number of skills and more about which skills they can learn, which seems to be 13 specific skills. My Paradox Bros, for example, hit that number a long time ago, and it's limited to all the skills listed here: http://duellinks.gamea.co/c/fokay7k6

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.

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.

Been farming using pegasus against lv 40 LD. Maybe 10 times a day.
Still no its a toon world drop skill.

Its not like Balance was a perfect skill to begin w/. It was never a high chance to get exactly what you wanted/needed.
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
Actually, Balance did used to be a skill that gave you a 100% chance to draw what you want/need. Balanced used to be different (in the BETA): it used to balance your hand (2 monsters + 2 Spells/Traps). So, if your deck ran only 1 or 2 monsters or Spells/Traps, you'd always start with them.
