Robin Skill Guide: How to Level Up Robin – Gotham Knights

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:

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.
