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.
→ Details of Gate 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.
→ High Score Cerberus: deck recipe

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.

How can I set/switch Skill?

In the deck edit mode, tap the skills at the top and it will show you a list of skills that you have unlocked that can be used.

What will happen if I get replicated skill?

Getting duplicate skills will automatically be converted to gems while duplicate unnecessary rare cards can be converted to gold or SR/UR orbs.

How to get hhg?? My Mai is Level 32 and i didnt get it..
anoymous 10days ago
The data could have been a coincidence. It is a waste of keys to farm lvl 40 LD.
Mihawk 14days ago
Playing vs lvl 40 LD is 8 times as expensive as lvl 10 (in terms of colored keys) but really easier
I seriously would like to know the drop rate of each :/
J 10days ago
the drop rate of farming lvl 40 LD is 4.xx% and if you farm lv 30 duelists it's about a 1% chance (for each chest) in the subreddit is a guy who collected the data of over 500 duels against lv 30 and 40 LDs
anoymous 11days ago
I've seen just common sense in the comments so far. The guy wants to know the % of drop @ lvls 10, 20, 30, 40 so he can evaluate the cost/benefict of farming the duelist @ X lvl. That's it.
Pegasus 13days ago
Incorrect. The higher the score, the better the rewards.
anoymous 13days ago
No, get rare Drops is better with LD lv40 because you need get a ¨Rainbow chest¨ and you get easier Rainbow chest with LD lv 40.
Mihawk 14days ago
I wouldn't be so sure...
anoymous 14days ago
That is a myth. Skill drop is equal across all levels.
Mihawk 14days ago
ofc I CAN drop skill, but it's rarer against lvl 10 and I want to know the difference of rarity ^^'
anoymous 14days ago
Skills, not cards, are dropped at every level. Specific cards are dropped at specific levels. Amount of cards/skills depends on score. Why is that so hard to comprehend?
ACiDvision 14days ago
Why is everyone so determined to get toon world skill? HHG is a much better field spell skill and even that is vulnerable but less so than toon world is. One despell and ur toons r useless. I guess now u get get a second toon world from lvl 35 Peg but controller is better. Toons are purely for the fun of the deck.

@anon "You could get a common skill drop about 1 out of 6 or 7 duelists in or out of the gate" you're just VERY LUCKY
anoymous 14days ago
You could get a common skill drop about 1 out of 6 or 7 duelists in or out of the gate. The rare skills unique to each character have a much lower drop percentage. In or out of the gate does not matter. I've gotten skills from multiple lvl 10's outside of the gate
ACiDvision 14days ago
Oops, i was wrong about getting toon world at lvl 30 lol my bad. I did want to ask though, does anyone no if its possible to get a drop skill from a LD outside of the gate?
Doritos42 16days ago
One question:For farm a specific skill(in my case "it´s a toon world"),its best to hit only one LD several times or may be different duelists?
anoymous 16days ago
I find that farming lvl 10 duelists is the best way to farm skill set. I get like 5 chest per duel and those chest can contain skill. Ive been testing it and ive gotten 3 skills so far in ny 10 duels.
Rimbatuz 17days ago
Can i get common skills (like draw sense:light) from CD or only from LD?
anonymous 17days ago
You need to get 10 skills on Pegasus character, and then you can get "It's a Toon World" skill drop from any Legendary Duelist (lvl 40 LDs are the best from getting drop skills).
anoymous 13days ago
I guess so.
Kanchi 15days ago
My Pegasus had 12 skills so it's still drop toonworld ?
anoymous 19days ago
I just got the "Welcome to toon world" skill after about a month of farming. Thank god it's over
anoymous 19days ago
Duplicate was from a level 10
anoymous 19days ago
I was farming level 40 legendary duelists. Although you can get the skills from the lower levels. I got a duplicate of the skill "creator" this morning. The toon world skill definitely felt impossible for a while, don't lose hope lol
Underkat 19days ago
What level were you farming??? I've been farming this for about a month also :((((((

I made a deck specifically for farming skill drops. Pricey but it works. Consistent 5k-6k+ scores. Works pretty much on any duelists and you don't need any skills. Rex is the best to farm though with this deck, since he's the easiest of all the legendary duelists.
I put in kuriboh, etaqua, mirror, and water balloons to stall.

If you don't have those pricey cards you can just use metamorph, etaqua and embodiment which you get from level rewards. Enemy controller works too.

Kuriboh - can be replace with Econ, etaqua, or embodiment
Mirror wall - can be replace by metamorph
2x moray - you need to must have atleast one moray. I have 2 because I happened to have 2. I want consistent draws. I've only use painful escape maybe once or twice so far.
2x yomi ships - can be replace by needle or any water monsters. I have 2 because I want to get rid of his high beatstick.
1x kaiser - have this cuz of its high atk and is water, can be replace by any water monsters or hunter with 7 weapons.
2x - jam breeding machines. You need to must have at least one for this deck. 2 for consistent.
1x balloons - can win you the match such a good card. Can be replace by any equip spells or umi.
I'll probably migh replace it for 2nd balloons though, but surprisingly I've been drawing umi consistently so I'm keeping it for now and you don't want to discard those water monsters so.
Micro ray - this is a good card if you want to get high assessments, if you don't have this you can replace it with riyoko and combo it with either stop defense or etaqua. Rex will have at least one face up monster. He use that trap card "Fossil Excavation".

There you go. Feel free to give suggestions and share this deck with others. I'm glad to help fellow duelists.

Is summoned skull in the game I seen a room one but not the other
Legend23 16days ago
@Lady- you dont need them it just there to stall. You can replace it with 2nd water balloon, etaqua, econ, kuriboh, half shut, or anything that can stall.
LadyRen 20days ago
I don't have metamorph or mirror wall, is there something else I could replace it with?
CreativiTimothy 21days ago
Great deck! I have a similar deck using Piercing Morays. My issue is when I draw the slime breeding machines before the morays which is when I have trouble. At that time though, I had o wonder balloons or kuribohs s I guess that makes up for it
anoymous 21days ago
Question, for the sake of just obtaining a particular characters drop skill, and not for cards/keys/gems, would it be more cost effective to farm Lvl 10 LD's? There are just a few skills I really want and frustrated I still can't get them even with high score farm decks. Any suggestions?
Underkat 31days ago
I've been trying to get toon world for the past week and must have atleast 10 skills for Pegasus now but still no toon world. So frustrating!
Gabriel 1/1/1970

anoymous 1/1/1970

hwtr 1/1/1970
i just got char spesific skill like buzz on (for weevil) when i defeat lvl 10 LD (bandit keith). its posible to farm skill on lvl 10 LD, depend on ur luck.
Clife 1/1/1970
Is it actually a bug or just a mispelling? Because for me it is written "below 100 lp" for the luck on your side skill of joey (playing in german) instead of 1000. Really riddiculous
Crisalid-X 1/1/1970
Thank you for this update!!!
Fatality 1/1/1970
I was wondering if to get skills drop have to fight legendary duels from NV 40 or can it be from NV 10?
Fatality 1/1/1970
But the legendary duelist can be of any level or he needs to be in the 40 ??
anoymous 26days ago
no need to be in lv 40. I got "destiny draw" long time ago from a lv 30 LD or maybe lower...cant remember :(( but its possible.
anoymous 26days ago
no need to be in lv 40. I got Destiny Draw long time ago from a level 30 LD or maybe lower..cant remember who :( but its possible
anoymous 1/1/1970
So the only way to get skill drop is from vsing legendary duels? Good to know. I'm looking for Draw sense: Low or Light w/e is call.

Commens and feedback

as usual. no gems for every maintence, unlike other games :(
You need to adjust your thought. Because the AI seems to know what you wanted the most and decide...
i am so upset that yugi muto didn't drop even 1 union attack but i have been fighting lv.30 ...
I see this more of a Zombie type rather than Fiend type.
