    Yea that’s right. On Level the skill already grants you +30 ATT. However, it could be a editing error, and instead of 30 ATT on level 1, it was meant to be..3 for example.

    Hi Ayumi!
    Long Sword Mastery says it increase attack by 30 on lvl 1 and lvl 10, so it means that the attack is already maxed on lvl 1? Only the attack range increases with level?
