Absolute skills are also referred to as second awaking skills and are an upgrade of the main skill set of each class in Black Desert Online. Their mechanics are basically the same but they do more damage and/or hit more targets.
To get absolute skills you will have to do the awaking quests (level 56) and put skill points in the highest rank of the main skill that you want to learn the absolute rank of. And although the absolute skills are only available after awakening, they don’t use the awakening weapon, making it necessary to switch between awakening mode and non-awakening mode a lot.
Absolute skills will consume up to 56 skill points a piece, making the management of combat skill points are real challenge.
Absolute skills will be added to the game in EU/NA on 28-02-2018.
