Skill Books in Dust 514
Skill books in Dust 514 have the same function as they do in Eve. Once purchased a new skill is made available for use by your Merc. They can be purchased either in the Marketplace or direct from The Skill Tree.
These improve with each activated Skill Level up to Level 5. Access to other skills can also be allowed once a particular skill has reached a certain level. This is known as a prerequisite.
There is a basic Skill Point requirement for each skill. This is known as the Training Cost Multiplier.
Training Cost Multiplier
The base Training Cost Multiplier, or x1 is as follows:
Level 1 = 6220 SP
Level 2 = 18,650 SP
Level 3 = 43,530 SP
Level 4 = 87, 060 SP
Level 5 = 155,460 SP
So the total SP requirement to get a base x1 skill to Level 5 is 310,920 SP.
As an example, the Weaponry skill has a x1 Training Cost Multiplier but the Caldari LAV (Light Attack Vehicle) skill has a x8 Training Cost Multiplier. Meaning that it requires 8 times the number of SP that a x1 skill like Weaponry needs per level.
As of the open beta the Training Cost Multiplier of various skills are x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x8, x10 and x12.
|Skill Rank||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3||Level 4||Level 5|
