Skills in Gotham Knights are a core part of character progression, giving you sometimes massive boosts to your abilities, or even unlocking new utilities or moves themselves. These are purchased via Ability Points, which are earned from a variety of sources, like leveling up, completing certain challenges, or finding collectible sets. As you get more (and you can see how to do so with this guide), you might be wondering how best to spend them, since each character has 4 completely unique skill trees with a wide variety of skills.
The purpose of this guide is to help you figure out how best to spend your Ability Points for Robin, giving you level-by-level suggestions for what to purchase next. In order to get the most out of this guide, you should only purchase Perfect Evade (Marked “1”) before completing your Knighthood Challenge in order to unlock the Knighthood skill tree.
In order, the skills you should purchase are:
Perfect Evade – Slugger
Light Footed – Shadow
Turnabout Takedown – Shadow
Vantage Hanging Takedown – Shadow
Vantage Haning Takedown Mine – Shadow
Reduced Visual Stim – Shadow
Shadow Renewal – Shadow
Stealth Damage + – Shadow
Aerial Attack Smoke – Knighthood
Stealth Takedown + – Knighthood
Slideways Takedown – Knighthood
Elemental Charge – Tinkering
Sticky Pellet – Tinkering
Sticky Pellets x3 – Tinkering
Enhanced Sticky Pellets – Tinkering
Combat Expertise – Knighthood
Back Damage + – Slugger
Critical Expertise – Slugger
Precise Strikes – Slugger
Elemental Focus – Slugger
Microbot Target + – Knighthood
Microbots Cooldown Reduction – Knighthood
Elemental Resistance – Tinkering
Enhanced Elemental Effects – Tinkering
Elemental Burst – Tinkering
Elemental Decoy – Slugger
Exploding Decoy – Slugger
Note that this is just a recommended order for maximum efficiency, based on the utility provided by each skill. If you don’t want to follow this guide exactly, then you should keep in mind that, typically, skills that unlock new techniques should be prioritized, and that skills that complement each other (for example, those that improve criticals or health packs) should be purchased in blocks to maximize their benefit.
Now that you know how best to spend your AP for Robin, you are ready to take on Gotham and start earning those Ability Points. Or, maybe you want to check out the Skill Guides for the other characters, to make sure your whole Bat-Family is ready to go. And when you are ready to get all of the Ability Points, to eventually unlock all the skills for every character, you should see our “How to Max Out the Skill Trees” guide to find out how.
