Other ways to get skill points[edit]

Has it been conformed any other ways to get skill points besides the challenges. Like if at 80 you get skill points instead of leveling. Anzenketh 06:13, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

you do continue to "level up" beyond level 80 and get a skill point eacht time instead of a next level. This way you can gather skill points to spend at the mystic forge and whatever use they may have as well now or later. -- 10:50, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Skill points in skill's list‎[edit]

I have a suggestion. What in list of profession skills ‎would be interesting to add skill points to unlock cost? The reason is to have quick access to all how much they cost without having to enter one by one.

I do not know where would be the correct channel for this idea but I think this is the best place to discuss it.

PvE and WvW[edit]

Since you can level your character in WvW only if you wanted, and get skill points in there for skills, but you also have all your skill challenges in PvE, and your character is exactly the same in both... does that mean that if you play one or the other only, you miss out on skill points that could open up more skills to you? And vice versa, if you play both, do you get an advantage in that you have more skills you can unlock to slot in your heal/utilities/elite bar? Is it possible to go collect them all and unlock nearly every skill available to you, while missing out on this opportunity if you play only one? ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 20:11, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

I can't imagine why anyone would want to miss out on the beautiful PvE of GW2 anyway :P
But to be serious, while Anet has said that it's possible to level to 80 entirely in PvP, I don't believe they ever said that PvP could be entirely separate from PvE. I didn't really think abut it before (I play PvE predominantly) but I think that we probably will need to do PvE to get as many skill points as most people will want. We might see (for example) skill points popping up in WvW, though, so I wouldn't pass judgement until the game is out. Thunderduck 20:37, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
In the BWE I'm currently in, you gain skill points by leveling. I got one at level 5, and at level 14 I have a total of 14 skill points after completing 5 skill challenges. This would imply that you actually get a skill point every level, so leveling by PvP only is entirely viable (with regards to skills, anyway). Of note, however, structured PvP does not provide experience in this beta. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 20:16, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
So you get a total of 76 points for leveling, possibly more if you keep earning them after level 80 (like GW1). The skill challenge page says that there were 182 skill challenges in the BWE. Which is more than enough to buy every profession and racial skill. So the real question is, what do we do with our excess skill points ? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Anzenketh (talk).

You can spend them to buy some things Miyani --Nick123 User Nick123 sig.jpg 10:02, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
So characters obviously gain skill points after reaching max level. Mediggo 10:07, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Merge with Skill page[edit]

This should be merged with the skill page.

Confirm Requested - Miyani WvW[edit]

I know I saw an npc with the same vendor list of items in Stonemist Keep in WvW, but it can't be Miyani, can it? And gaining control isn't that easy for my smaller world, so I can't go checking whenever I want... Can somebody find out what the name is, confirming it, and update the page? ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 23:57, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Pretty sure it's just "Mystic Forge Attendant", but next time I get the chance I'll check to be sure. --Pie Formation 09:01, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Banking Skill Points[edit]

Do we have information on how many Skill Points can we bank? I'm getting close to the magic maximum number (250) so I'm wondering if Skill Points are treated as stacks. --Sir Vincent III (talk) 16:37, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

I've currently got 254 Skill point.png --Felbryn (talk) 05:57, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Now see if you can pass 255. After that, we'll have to wait until someone gets to 511. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 06:00, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
260 Skill point.png now. I would be very surprised if there was any limit small enough to care about (considering how much space must be devoted to peripheral features like obscure achievements, it seems very unlikely they'd jump through hoops on a major game mechanic to save a fraction of a byte). --Felbryn (talk) 05:34, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
