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, 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.

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 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.

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.

So, this question doesnt get asked enough. if all you want is a drop skill, does the level of the opposing LD increase or decrease chance of getting a rare drop skill? for example, I want titan showdown, should i aim for 8000 points against a LD lvl 40 or can i save keys and just do LD lvl 10s?

It seems that no one in this forum know this fact. Skills are specific for characters. Yugi has 14 skills. He has draw sense fire but draw sense light is impossible for him etc. No. of skill: Yugi 14, Kaiba 15, Joey 13, Mai 13...Number of skills is not too relevant as most of not useful. Just concentrate on collecting non-common skills is enough.

Why is mokuba icon is a dragon?
Maximilium bakura 29days ago
There is a skill you can get for mokuba that I haven't seen on anyone else, and that is draw pass. Instead of drawing a card, you can skip it and gain 400 life points and it can only be activated 3 times.

I'm starting to think GX characters cant gain skills from dueling Rex 40-done 1716 games with Jaden and reached over 8000+ and not gained a single skill yet? Can any one else confirm if this is the case?

my statistics of total 40 duels with only 6 skill is less than half of Japan site claiming 20 duels with 8 skill.
<< Anonymous

FYI, the Japan site said for 20 duels of 8 rewards: LV40 drop 8 skill which LV30 drop 3 skill so it is better to do LV40. However, the drop rate is marginally different and there is huge chance of mere statistic phenomenon since sample not large and it is highly probable to be character dependent. Rival characters may be better.

Its just rnd dudes. Just farm all the lds when you see them. Why bother with such statistics? My suggestion is don't farm for the sake of getting skill, just aim for the loot.

Japan site drop rate for 20duels 8 rewards:LV20:0; Lv10:1; and conclude that LV40 is best. However, statistic inference from small sample like this is not reliable. No one has such a lot keys to do big sample. I later add Pegasus vs Keith30 test result. Not much keys left.
For those who want to get drop skills : paradox bros are very easy to farm with a BEWD deck.

Yes, but the drop rate is beyond terrible. 60% of the chests are gold... So demotivating

Well i don't know which method he used, but there are a few combos to achieve over 10K damage. For example: - Piranha Army + BEWD + Secret Pass to the Treasure + Riryoku + Gift of the Martyr - Gravekeeper Vasall + some strong Monster + Secret Pass to the Treasure + multiple Union Attacks. Just browse around the site to see farming decks for the different LD's :)
do i duel the legendary duelist or use the legendary duelist to get the drop skill

Both you will only get skills fighting legendary duelists with the duelist you want the skills for.
I believe there are actual requirements that need to be met in order to obtain drop skills eg. could be something like if you destroy a certain attribute monster by battle enough times you get the 'Draw Sense' for that attribute. If only someone actually knew what these were...

Thats how im starting to feel about certain skills. Ive been farming Labyrinth Builder on the same LD's for a couple weeks and am only getting duplicates now.

That would explain why I mostly only seem to be getting elemental draw sense ones. I have only gotten about three drop skills: Draw sense Earth, Draw sense Wind, and Balance. When will I ever start getting the fun stuff?

No this is not the case it's all rng

Woah,really? I got two skills in one farm. Draw sense wind, and labyrinth builde.
Another Balance. Well, that's...nice, I guess. Too bad that I already have Kaiba using other stuff, though.
