How to get drop skills
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.
You can fight any Legendary Duelists (LD) to get a chance to drop skills, the easiest ones being Tea Gardner, Weevil Underwood, Rex Raptor or Odion. 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. Rex is considered the easiest because he doesn't have any attack increasing cards other than his field spell, and most of his monsters have only about 1800 attack.
There have been multiple event featured in the game, and during those event periods, 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.
There's also a chance for a skill to drop when you play PvP. This only applies to Ranked Duels, and Casual Duels. Friend Duels won't give you any rewards. This can be a better option sometimes if you are low on keys, or don't want to spend any, and you can keep dueling other players without a limit. The common strategy that people like to do is to go to Casual Duels using decks that causes them to lose the duels fast, or simply keep passing the turns until your opponent beats you.
The main thing that you'll want to achieve is a high score, and can farm fast and consistently. Cerberus decks are often used due to how easy it is to get attack more than 9999 damage which gives 3000 pts, and the cards needed in a Cerberus decks aren't difficult to obtain.

I strongly recommend you to use this deck for the following three points:
Deck recipe is currently in progress. Stay tuned!
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.

Tethys deck can be used to farm easily farmable LDs like Rex Raptor pretty fast and consistently, and it also doesn't require any character specific skills so you can use it on any characters. Unfortunately, Tethys was only available through an event, but if there are future obtainable ways and you get 1 or 2 copies of her, you can use her in the Tethys fairy deck for skill farming.
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.
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.
