How do you level up the Assault skill-line?


To level up the Assault skill-line in the Elder Scrolls Online you have to participate in PvP activities and earn Alliance Points, often referred to as AP. To gain Alliance Points you have to kill enemy players, conquering keeps, participating in Battlegrounds etc. However, in contrary to the Assault skill-line itself where you have to earn Alliance Points in order to advance, the skills can also be leveled up by simply gaining experience points from killing monsters or completing quests.

The damage numbers of the skills that you see below are used for comparison. The numbers are based on a naked level 50 character without any skills, passives, attributes and champion points allocated.
