Skills are your character's proficiency in certain actions. Skills have levels that start at 0 and can be increased through experience.
All your skills don't initially appear in your menu when check it. You need to do the required action first and gain experience before it will appear in the Skills menu.
The maximum skill level is 100. At this level, your skills are at max proficiency and will allow you to get the most out of your skills. It can take you a while to grind the experience to get to level 100, but it can be made easier with our skill grinding guide.
Skill Leveling Guide
Dying can punish you by lowering your skill level by 5%. It doesn't seem like much at first but can add up if you keep dying. There is some leeway. Upon respawning you have a buff that will prevent skill level loss for a few minutes. If you want to know more information on what happens when you die, check out the guide below
