Update History


Revamped Skill (K) Window

Major Update: Revamped Skill (K) Window


We've revamped the skill window with a new UI. We combined each skill's levels together to present each class' skills in a more intuitive structure and added the Skill Preset function you can use to save skill configurations before making any changes. Skill Presets even saves Skill Add-On settings, and completing Succession and Awakening quests will award one preset slot each, while completing Talent and Ascension quests will award two preset slots each. This means there is a maximum of two preset slots available per class. 

This new skill window is quite a big change from the previous version, and we fear you might find it awkward. Please share your feedback with us, so we can find ways to make any improvements, if needed.

  • You can view skill demos whenever you wish in the new skill window. Select the skill on the right, which will display the skill demo on the left along with detailed skill descriptions. You can also always hover your mouse over the skill icon to read the text bubble with the skill description.

  • Succession and Awakening skills can be accessed from the top right of the skill window once your character has completed their Succession or Awakening quests.



  • ​​​​​​You can toggle displaying skill demos with the button on the bottom of the skill window.



  • Main Weapon skills have been divided into Main Skills, Secondary Skills, and Passive Skills.

    • Click each tab to see the skills in each category.



Skills are also divided into Main Weapon, Awakening Weapon, and Skill Enhancement categories.



  • Press LMB on a specific skill icon to learn the skill.

  • Hold Shift + LMB on a skill icon to learn the maximum level of that skill available to you.

  • Characters below Lv. 56 can freely reset all the skills learned to free up their skill points.

    • Press RMB on a skill icon to reset each individual skill.

    • Hold Shift + RMB on a skill icon to reset the skill to its lowest level.

  • Use the Toggle Black Spirit's Rage function to toggle Black Spirit's Rage skills.


  • Use Skill Cooldown Slot function to set how your skills' cooldowns will be displayed.



Added the Skill Preset function.

  • Skill Preset saves all currently learned skills and Skill Add-ons so you can restore them later.

    • There is a maximum of two preset slots available per class.

  • You can save Skill Preset anytime, but to load Skill Preset you will either need a Secret Book of Old Moon and be in a Safe Zone, or go find a skill instructor.

    • Using a Secret Book of Old Moon to load previously saved Skill Presets will lock you to a 1 hour cooldown, while talking to a skill instructor only has a 10 minute cooldown.

    • When loading a Skill Preset, your character will act out a special motion.

    • You can reset your skills without a Secret Book of Old Moon or Armstrong's Skill Guide item by clicking on a notification about skill reset if it pops up while you are saving or loading Skill Presets.

      • You cannot use the Skill Preset function if you do not reset your skills, so make sure to reset your skills by clicking on the notification.
