Skill Point Collection Guide

Introduction

This article details where and how to obtain all the currently available Skill Point Potions in the western version of Lost Ark. Investing more Skill Points allows you to allocate additional Tripods, resulting in an overall increase in Damage Per Second (DPS) during battles.

With level caps going above to 55 and 60, you gain 6 Skill Points per level. At level 55, you can upgrade your skills to level 11 for a 10% damage boost. At level 60, you can level your skills to 12 for another 5% damage boost.

For now, 22 Skill Point Potion and 5 Greater Skill Point Potion can be collected for a total of 348 Skill Points at level 50. With level 55, your maximum Skill Points attainable will become 378. At level 60, your limit will be even higher at 408 Skill Points. Collect them all to fully maximize your character!


Breakpoints

Skills gain Tripods when they reach Levels 4, 7 and 10. There are breakpoints where a certain amount of Skill Points (270, 285, 288, 297, etc.) grants access to an additional Tripod. For example, 288 Skill Points is an important breakpoint where 6x Tier 3 Tripods can be allocated.

The next two milestones would be at 312 Skill Points and 330 Skill Points because your utility skills get some good upgrades. The lull between 336 and 342 Skill Points is an awkward spot to be in. Most classes lose the utility skill at 336 if you are focusing on 7x Tier 3 Tripods. Some classes lose a distance increase tripod in their dash skill.

Of course, once you hit level 55 and 60, you should focus on immediately putting points into skills that do the most damage. The listed breakpoints to the right is the ideal combination for most classes. By no means should you only start upgrading your skills to Level 11 once you reach 348.

Collection Strategy

Quest unlocks are usually the easiest ones, while the collection unlocks are ones that require progression over multiple days or even months. I will detail the quickest Skill Point Potions to acquire, separated into three sections. The first section details what skill points are related to your gear progression on your path toTier 3. The 2nd section details which skill points are daily gated. The 3rd details the Skill Point Potions from side content that don't really have anything to do with your gear progression. You can complete the side content at any time you wish.

Progression Related

  1. The Skill Point Potion quests from East Luterra, Anikka, Shushire, and Serenity Isle can instantly be done once you hit level 50 for +12 Skill Points. You can even do the one from East Luterra and Anikka while leveling to 50 if you want.
  2. Once you have reached item level 420. Complete Floor 20 of Shadespire to be rewarded with Skill Point Potion. Subsequently, reach item level 540 to complete Floor 50 of Shadespire to be rewarded with another Skill Point Potion.
  3. The 2nd Awakening Quest chain rewards a fair bit of materials, and you can start your 2nd Awakening Quest once you finish Rohendel's main quest. Be aware though that the entire quest chain can take you 3-4 hours to finish.
  4. If you've been doing island quests for upgrade materials, you're most likely also trying to acquire Island Tokens. Depending on how well you know the easiest Island Tokens to obtain, you can unlock Greater Skill Point Potion as a reward for 20 Island Tokens. This can be done in 1 or 2 days. Check out the Fastest 20 Island Token Guide for the fastest and easiest ones to acquire.
  5. If you're now on T2 content, you can treat Floor 20 and Floor 50 of Fatespire as your next steps. You will want the rewards from the other floors of the tower either way.
  6. Upon completing Feiton's main story quest, you will be able to takeFeiton Purple Quest #1.

Daily Gated

  1. Once you reach Rohendel, you can get started on the prerequisites forReturn Trip. Since this quest requires 7x Una's Task Completion, at the minimum it will take you 7 days.
  2. Try to start Whispering Islet's Una's Task as fast as possible. It will take you at least 10 days to acquire the Skill Point Potion from this.
  3. One of Feiton's Skill Point quests requires, at the minimum, 4 days of quest completion since the followup quests don't appear until the next day.
  4. Finishing Punika's main story quest will allow you to start the quest chain for the Skill Point quest. Followup quests appear the next day, so it will take you 5 days to complete each quest.

Side Content

  1. There are 3 Skill Point Potions from East Luterra Adventure Tome Completion, North Vern Adventure Tome Completion, and Shushire Adventure Tome Completion. Depending on how quick you are, you can usually acquire them in less than 2 hours each.
  2. Rohendel's Adventure Tome takes more time than the 3 previous Adventure Tomes. You can attempt to do it, but don't prioritize the Skill Point here.
  3. Skill Point Potions from Giant's Hearts collection are your long term goals. Try to be conscious of acquiring them as you play the game.
  4. Collecting 2 Omnium Stars shouldn't be too difficult. Collecting 6 is extremely difficult as the 6th is from Punika's Field Boss, Moake. There is a low drop rate for this boss.
  5. The Greater Skill Point Potion from 8 Ignea Tokens is most likely the one that you will require the most amount of time invested, as maxing Rapport for NPCs is one of the most time-consuming activities in Lost Ark.

The Luterra quest starts inside the castle. This is a straightforward quest, so just follow the in-game instructions.
