Skill Basics / Learning Skills

All units have specific skills which they can learn. To learn skills, the character needs to have enough Skill Points (SP), the "currency" for learning skills, in order to learn that skill. These points can be earned through battle by doing damage to enemies, levelling up, and successfully killing enemies. Additionally, some skills can't be learned unless the hero is at a high enough rarity to unlock that skill.

Skills are split into four categories:

  • Weapons
  • Assists
  • Specials
  • Passives

A character can only have one weapon, assist skill, and special skill equipped. For passives, these are split into Passive A, Passive B, and Passive C. Certain passive skills belong in certain passive slots, denoted by the letter in the skill picture.

Only one passive can be equipped in each Passive slot.

Equip Skills

Typically, a character will have multiple skills that can be equipped in a certain slot. For example, some characters have two different Special skills which they can equip, but you can only choose one to take into battle.

A player can go into the Equip Skills menu and can equip different skills with on a hero. There will be a confirmation asking a player to use the stamina to change skills; however, Nintendo indefinitely kept the current cost for changing equips using stamina to 0 as part of the Launch Celebration event.
