Skill Points Guide

Skill points in Lost Ark are a major way of increasing your character’s power and creating a variety of builds. They are used to increase the level of your skill, boosting its base damage output and gives you access to unlocking tripods. Skill Points are granted for leveling up, completing quests, gathering collectibles, doing instances and completing Adventure’s Tome.

Is it mandatory to obtain all skill points before entering endgame instances?

It is not mandatory to obtain all skill points before starting endgame experience but some classes benefit more from additional skill levels. Getting all possible skill points in the game is a time consuming process but totally worth it if you want to “min max” your character.

How many skill points are needed to level up abilities?

Number of skill points needed to level up an ability increases with its level and is presented in the table down below.
