Lost Ark is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game with a dynamic and diverse combat system. Each class in Lost Ark has access to various skills that can be customized and enhanced with skill points, skill trees, runes, engravings, and cards. In this article, we will explain what Skill points are and how to unlock all the skill points in Lost Ark.
What are Skill Points?
Skill points are the currency you use to level up your skills and unlock new skill tree branches. Each skill has its skill tree that allows you to modify its effects, damage, cooldown, range, and more. Skills can unlock Tripods when they reach levels 4, 7, and 10, resulting in an overall increase in Damage per Second (DPS) during battles.
