Hero skill point

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Like skill points, hero skill points allow the player to purchase skills. Hero skill points can be redeemed by a hero skill trainer much in the same fashion as skill trainers; however, hero skill trainers allow you to purchase skills from potentially any profession and without any gold or skill point cost.

Once a skill is purchased that way, it becomes unlocked for the account and learned by that character.

Hero skill points are the only way to purchase and unlock profession-specific PvE Sunspear skills.


Each character can earn up to 33 hero skill points in Nightfall and 40 in Eye of the North; these can be used in either campaign.

  • Two points for each Sunspear rank (the first two ranks earn one point each).
  • Two points for each Lightbringer rank (the first rank earns only one point).

You can also buy a hero skill point from any hero skill trainer for 1Platinum and 1 (character) skill point.

  • Trainers only offer this option if a character has no remaining hero skill points.
  • Since this is either identical to or more expensive than buying the same skill from a skill trainer, the only reason for using this option is to learn Sunspear PvE skills early in the game.


  • The only way to see how many hero skill points you have is to visit a hero skill trainer.
  • There is no limit to the number of points that can be purchased.
