Advanced Class Subskills

Advanced Class Subskills require Advanced Skill Points, which you can get by training your class skills above level 20 in Lyceum.

Each subskill costs 1 Advanced Skill Point, to get an advanced skill point, you will need two specific skills to 21 (Drone Deployment means you will also require Piloting at an equal level) to obtain your first advanced point, you can get a second advanced skill point by training two more specific skills to 22 (not necessarily the same ones as before), the required skills vary between what focus you have.

To train an advanced subskill, you will first need both required skills. Once you have both required skills for your focus, a mission will appear in the central Lyceum base, this mission will train your focus skill to 21/22, and allow you train your class skill to 21/22 at your respective classes base. You can now pick your first (and later second) advanced subskill at your focus base in Lyceum. The only way to reset your advanced subskills is through the Neurodoc, so be sure you're happy with your choice!
