Elite Skills are a set of special skills characters have access to depending on their class combination.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Each class has a set of Class-Specific Skills and a set of General Skills that they may learn as they level and then train up using TP. Elite Skills are a set of Class-Specific Skills, learned every 5 levels starting at 15, that are unique to particular class combinations. A character with both the Warrior and Rogue classes, for instance, has different Elite Skills than a character with the Mage and Scout classes, and a Mage/Scout has a different set of Elite Skills than a Mage/Priest.
both classes must be at the level for the elite skill. If you have a mage/priest with the mage at level 25 and priest at level 15 you will only be able to learn the level 15 elites. You will be able to learn the level 20 and 25 elites when you get the priest up to level 20 and 25.

Regardless of the name, Elite Skills are not necessarily powerful, must-have skills. They are moderately difficult to learn, however, and help to further differentiate dual-class character experiences. All Elite Skills are Class-Specific, but you can learn both sets as long as you supply the materials for certificates to an Elite Skills Master while having the necessary class set as your primary.

Levels 60 and 70 require a quest series started by an Elite Skills Master in your home city. That means Varanas City, Obsidian Stronghold, Valley of Preparation, Morfantas City, or Heffner Camp.

Speak to an Elite Skills Master, such as Sigg Fletcher or Listi Pursdon in the Varanas Class Hall. He will request that you obtain some specific materials to trade for a Skill Training Certificate Skill Training Certificate for your level. Use it and ask the Master to train you.

See Skill Training Certificate Skill Training Certificate for a listing of the quests and materials needed.

New Method (15 to 50)[edit | edit source]

In the Coast of Opportunity and Xaviera, you will come across quests that reward an Old Bag Old Bag - these quests are infinitely repeatable and usually require you to use special abilities to achieve an objective.

Upon opening the bag, if both of your class levels are sufficient to learn a new elite skill, you will receive a Lv. X Elite Skill Certificate (Lv. 15, Lv. 20, etc.). Remember that you get two elite skills at each level point, based on your Primary/secondary classes. For an example, let's say you are a Mage/Warrior. You will get two skills at level 15/15. One for your level 15 M/W (Magical Talent), and a second for your level 15 W/M (Electrical Rage). You must switch Primary/secondary before you open the Old Bag Old Bag. If you mess this up all you will find in the bag is some gold, and you will need a new Old Bag Old Bag to try again.

These certificates can be turned in to Lowen Dunlit in Coast of Opportunity at Heffner Camp to learn the skill for your primary/secondary class combination. At level 50, you will need to have all the Elite Skills (of primary and secondary class) before level 50 to learn it. Also, at level 50, you need only one Old Bag Old Bag, as the skill you get will be unique to the intersection of your two classes.

Of course, this becomes more complicated if you have 3 or more classes but the rules above still apply.

Note: Shadowforge Dwarves do not need Skill Training Certificates Skill Training Certificates, they have their own Elite Skills Master, Sayen Glin, in Heffner Camp.
