Sekiro Skills and Skill Trees refers to Character Progression by investing Skill Points  into special Skill Trees that unlock Combat Arts or Techniques in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. There are 3 Skill Trees and players can allocate Skill Points into them to develop the player character. The Skill Trees are: Shinobi, Samurai and Prothestic Arm. Some of the Skills you unlock are passive Skills, meaning their effect will always be present. Others are active Skills called: Combat Arts or Techniques, that the player must actively use by pressing L1 + R1. Players can only have a certain amount of these equipped, and it is believed they must be changed at a Sculptor's Idol.


How to Get Skill Points

Players gain Skill Points by gaining Experience, which is done via defeating Enemies and Bosses. How much Experience you gain is thought to be based on your current "level", and the difficulty of the enemy defeated. For more information on this please see the Skill Points & Experience page.


How to Spend Skill Points

Players spend their Skill Points while resting at any Sculptor's Idol. Sculptor's Idols are spread across the game world (much like Bonfires in Dark Souls), so this can be done fairly easily.


Can I Respec My Skill Points?

Unfortunately that information is not currently known, but this will be updated once it is.

Shinobi Skill Tree

The Shinobi Skill Tree in Sekiro focuses on stealth tactics, and will be the predominant Skill Tree for players who prefer to avoid direct confrontation, and would rather remain in the shadows killing in one strike. However, because Stealth is likely to play less of a role during Boss encounters, players should also in other Skill Trees as well.

    • Shinobi Skill 2
    • Shinobi Skill 3
      • Shinobi Skill 4
        • Shinobi Skill 5
      • Shinobi Skill 6
        • Shinobi Skill 7

          • Shinobi Skill 10
            • Shinobi Skill 11


Samurai Skill Tree

The Samurai Skill Tree in Sekiro focuses on combat and sword play. This is the Skill Tree for the player who plans to be in direct confrontation with enemies often, and who does not care too much for stealth tactics. Because Bosses are likely to be fought in this manner, placing some points into this Skill Tree is recommended to all players.

  • Samurai Skill 1
    • Samurai Skill 2
    • Samurai Skill 3
      • Samurai Skill 4

            • Samurai Skill 11


Prosthetic Arm Skill Tree

The Prosthetic Arm Skill Tree in Sekiro focuses on the use of the Prosthetic Arm Tool that all players possess. It allows the player to modify some of the tools they use into the manner that best fits their style of play. Since this can be direct or stealth combat, it is advised that all players spend at least some points into this Skill Tree.

  • Prosthetic Skill 1
    • Prosthetic Skill 2
    • Prosthetic Skill 3
      • Prosthetic Skill 4
        • Prosthetic Skill 5

      Sekiro Skill Trees are now official! Exciting and hopefully something that will help create some fun for those looking for "builds", even if it's much simpler than Souls titles. I'm particularly interested to see how these passive trees work, and what skills we end up recommending to take with your first points.
