Actually, based on Konami's changelog, it should be raised instead of a fall.

I do feel droprate for skill in PVP is quite high.

Still people complain about less gems
ShadyPenguin
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
