Dying Light Wiki

Legend Skills is a skill tree in Dying Light. It was added to the game with the Enhanced Edition, released concurrently with Dying Light: The Following.

The Legend tree is unlocked after gaining maximum rank in any of the other three skill trees, after which any experience that would previously have been gained in the previous tree is added to the Legend tree instead. Skill points are spent to increase attack power with various weapons, maximum health, increased stamina, and others. At every 25th rank a new outfit is unlocked.

Legend Skills

  • Unarmed Damage
  • One-Handed Weapon Damage

  • Stamina
  • Health
  • Health Regeneration
  • Stamina Regeneration


  • The number of Legend points rewarded for a given action is determined by the difficulty the game is currently set to:
    • On Normal difficulty, there is no multiplier.
    • On Hard difficulty, there is a 2.5x multiplier.
    • On Nightmare difficulty, there is a 10x multiplier.
  • One of the easiest and most effective ways to gain Legend levels is to repeatedly complete a quarantine zone which gives DROPS, such as Stuffed Turtle, on Normal difficulty, then switch to nightmare difficulty and turn in the drops all at once, rewarding you with 120,000 Legend points per DROP.
  • The number of Legend points required to gain a rank begins at 100,000 and only goes up by 500,000 every 25 ranks, making it easier than the other skill trees to calculate how long it will take to reach a certain rank by performing a certain action, as well as plotting your progress towards that rank.
