Lost Ark: The complete guide to skill points, skill attributes, and skill runes

In the Lost Ark game, skill is an aspect that players care a lot about. Like most other MMORPGs, the Lost Ark skill system is very complex. A complete guide on using skill levels points and acquiring more skills. Today, we look at The complete guide to skill points, skill attributes, and skill runes in Lost Ark.

Each class can acquire a limited number of combat skills, but each class can be upgraded in different ways through skill points. At each level, your character gains a certain number of skill points. These can be used in the Combat Expertise tab to enhance abilities. Factors could seem just a little overwhelming at first, with icons and numbers all over the place, but it's relatively simple.





Lost Ark Guide: Skill Points

Starting in Season 2, the maximum bonus skill points from non-upgraded sources is 105. Each level from 51 to 60 has six additional skill points.

Significantly, level 55 can be upgraded to level 11, and level 60 can be elevated to level 12. Level 11 and 12 skills cost 6 points each, which is a significant improvement compared to skill output. Ten previous levels. Level 11 skill damage increases by about 9-10%, and level 12 increases by 6-7%.

Talent resets are usually at no cost and can be performed though you are not in combat or when changing skills is prohibited. If the instance has a skill, you can change the skill at any time in the workshop area.

Lost Ark Guide: Skill Attributes

Back Attack: When using a skill with a back attack to attack an enemy from behind, the skill deals 5% extra damage and increases the critical strike chance by 10%. Sculpting increases bonus damage by up to +25%.

Staggered (1-5): Determines the level of Neutralization of the skill. The damage does not affect the degree of Neutralization of the skill, only the number of hits and the staggering level. In some cases, skills with lower stagger levels will deal more serious neutralization damage than skills with higher ranks. Suppression skill runes can further increase the Neutralization, up to 30%.


Weaknesses (1-5): Attributes are used for specific mechanics that require you to destroy enemy parts, such as Kaiser's Legplates, Chromanium's Shell, Achates' Wings, or Dark Night's Yoho's Tail. Weaknesses can also be inflicted using Destruction Bombs. Corrosive Bomb applies a debuff to enemies, making all incoming weak points used at a higher level. If a skill or item has Weakness 2, it will inflict 2 Weakness HP. Boss body parts have hidden individual HP, such as 10.

Headattack: This is the opposite of a Back Attack. When an attack with the Frontal Attack attribute hits an enemy from the front, this skill deals 20% more damage and 10% more Nullification damage. Sculpting increases bonus damage by up to +25%.

Counterattack: Skills with the counterattack attribute will immediately nullify the boss when hit from the front in a counter attackable action. To complete the counterattack, the attack must be made from their show and the frame of the countable action, which can be seen when the enemy flashes blue light for a split second. It's possible to fight back after the enemy's attack moves have already started, but it's more challenging, especially if you're playing at a higher ping. The counter-movement is usually a dash. Not all bosses can be countered. This mechanic has become increasingly important since South Fern.

All classes have at least one counter skill, but most people will never use them because they may use skills that don't deal high damage or because they are classes that rarely appear in front of bosses. All classes must know how to use their counter skills in Legion Raid Valtan.

    Lost Ark Guide: Skill Runes

    You can equip any of your skills with special runes, including classes with shapeshifting skills. Each skill can be equipped with one rune, up to a maximum of 8 runes. These runes expressly grant extra bonuses when you use the skill. Runes come from a variety of content. They can be equipped and removed from their skills for free. Skill presets will also remember which skill is set to use which rune.

    In some cases, if the rune has multiple sources, you can get multiple copies. For example, you can copy a rune from each raid, the rune of the wind.


    In the case of Bleeding Runes, Bleeding does not stack from the same player (with multiple Bleeding Runes equipped) and deals the same amount of damage at all rarities. Different players can apply other bleed stacks to the same target.
