Job Skill Ranks | Skill Caps | Combat Skill caps by job

Combat Skills and Magic Skills are stats that are natural to a character's job and are raised just by using them on mobs of a level appropriate to your skill.

There is a cap to each skill depending on the class and their proficiency with said skill. As your job level goes up, the cap rises as well.

Certain jobs excel at some skills, while other jobs excel at others. Make sure you know what skills your job excels at and raise them to reach the maximum potential of your character.

For instance an uncapped C skill, which caps at 230, at 220 becomes uncapped B+ skill of 246.)
