For each offensive melee skill in the game, there is a special quested Weapon Skill available. Each quest requires you to "break" a latent effect on a weapon, and then defeat an NM.

Each weapon requires a total of 300 "weapon skill points" to break the latent. In order to do this, you must fight Extremely Easy Prey or higher mobs, and perform weapon skills or close skillchains to build points. Once the elemental resistance bonuses from the weapon disappear from your equipment menu then you have "broken" the weapon and should trade the weapon back to the NPC that gave it to you.

As of the February 2019 update[1], these Weapon Skills gained a set of linked weapons for all save the Marksmanship Weapon Skill. The weapons grant all the jobs that can equip them access to the linked Weapon Skill while equipped, regardless of skill level or quest completion; as well as a substantial damage boost to the linked Weapon Skill similar to the hidden damage boosts for Relic and Mythic Weapons.
