How to get drop skills

What drop skills are

Some skills are obtainable as drops from Legendary Duelists from the gate or the ones that appear in Duel World, the skills that you can get are random from character exclusive skills, such as "Destiny Draw" of Yami Yugi and "Harpie's Hunting Ground" of Mai, to common skill drops, such as "LP Boost" skills and "Draw Sense" skills, that all characters can get.

Which duelists to farm

Lvl 40 Rex is the best!

You can fight any Legendary Duelists (LD) to get a chance to drop skills, the easiest ones being Tea Gardner, Weevil Underwood or Rex Raptor. Additionally it's better to duel against the lvl 40s since the chance of getting better cards, gems and skills are higher compared to the lower lvls.

LDs you may avoid

Some Legendary Duelists like Kaiba, Joey, Bandit Keith or Ishizu are known to be difficult to farm, especially if you are using standard farming deck using cerberus.

Be careful on spending Gate Keys

Keep in mind that the colored gate keys, other than white, are used by 2 characters. If you plan on choosing one then make sure that you check the other character to see if you want to get a specific card from them, so that you don't end up using all of that colored key.

Character featured events are chances!

There have been two event featured Pegasus and Yugi Muto in the game, and during those event period, players can challenge them without spending Gate Keys! The GameA website also shows decks to farm those LDs for a limited time with no set skill.

Decks to farm skills

The whole idea is to get the score as high as you can, with 8000 giving 8 cards which is the maximum number of drops that you can get from a single duel, and cerberus is often used due to how easy it is to get attack more than 9999 damage which gives 3000 pts.
→ How to get a high score

High Score Scorpion

I strongly recommend you to use this deck for the following three points:

  • No card from booster packs needed.
  • Can get around 6,000 score against Rex stably.
  • No skill is required that means you can use any character with this deck.

Deck recipe is currently in progress. Stay tuned!

High Score Cerberus

Basically your Yami Yugi, Weevil Underwood, and a character who has already acquired drop "Draw Sense: Light" skill, can handle a deck with cerberus and put 19 spell cards which includes stop defense works. Their "Sorcery Conduit" skill and "Draw Sense: Low-Level" skill allows you to get the monster to your hand. This is known to be an easy way to achieve a high score.

Other useful cards

If you don't have cerberus or scorpion then you can use any cards that can increase your attack points endlessly like Mystical Beast of Serket, Guardian Baou or Piercing Moray + Jam Breeding Machine. This will need to be used in a different deck using fusion summon, ritual summon and other ways to get a higher score.

Skills to aim for

While the character exclusive skills aren't a necessary thing to have, some skills are really good depending on your deck and some are fun to use.

Getting 5-6k is adequate for a drop skill farm ? Or must get 7-8k for higher chances of skill drop?

Each 1k point will reward 1 card or chest. Of course more points means more rewards and in turn higher chance to get the drop skills in chests.

I've spent weeks farming Tea, Weevil and Rex for Yami Bakuras Destiny Board skill and only got Draw Sense, Balance and LP Boost like 20 times.
And who was the one who finally dropped it? Random Level 10 Bandit Keith, who I didn't even duel. I used auto duel, so I had no high score (only ~3000 points) but there it was. I was so happy (even though i can't stand Keith, but i love him for dropping that) :')

Totally! They're probably the best way to get them without spending your keys.
