Initial skills are the ones your character start with. Fighting skills are the ones which are used to equip different types of weapons. Collecting skills are used to gather materials needed for production skills. Production skills are the ones which give final products like armors, weapons etc.

Each skill is divided into 3 phases.

- When a skill reaches level 31 you won't receive any more experience unless you promote it to phase 2.

Phase 2
- Max level 100
- When a skill reaches level 31 it can be promoted to phase 2.
- Only 8 skills can be promoted into phase 2 at skill tutor.

- Promoting 8th skill costs 5 000 000 silver coins.
- When a skill reaches level 100 you won't receive any more experience unless you promote it to phase 3.

Stunt skills

Every skill have its own sub skill called stunt skill. These stunt skills can be passive and active. Active skills are ones you have to activate yourself and they require SP points. Obviously passive skills don't require SP points to activate, they are already activated or have chance to activate.

When you reach certain levels you will receive stunt points. Stunt points can be spent for stunt skills at skill tutor. You should have in mind you can't buy some stunt skills if you don't have required level. For example you can't learn stunt skill level 2 unless you have main skill level 7. Even if you have enough stunt points you won't be able to buy it until your main skill level reaches level 7. At level 61 and 110 some main skills have special stunt skills which are sometimes called ultimate skills. Ultimate skills level can't be learned at skill tutor you need special skill promoting book. Each of stunt skills cost silver coins, there's table below which shows how much they cost.

At level 120 you will receive total 31 stunt points. Means you can't raise all stunt skills to level 12 so you should pick wisely.  Table below shows on which levels you receive stunt points and which level min skill you need to unlock stunt skills which i explained above.



Titles

When you reach a certain level in some skill you will get option to buy title. Titles can be seen by other players when they roll over you. Titles are good for show of cause all players can see what level you reached according to your title.
