Each class has a set of Class-Specific Skills and a set of General Skills that they may learn as they level and then train up using TP. Elite Skills are a set of Class-Specific Skills, learned every 5 levels starting at 15, that are unique to particular class combinations. A character with both the Warrior and Rogue classes, for instance, has different Elite Skills than a character with the Mage and Scout classes, and a Mage/Scout has a different set of Elite Skills than a Mage/Priest.
both classes must be at the level for the elite skill. If you have a mage/priest with the mage at level 25 and priest at level 15 you will only be able to learn the level 15 elites. You will be able to learn the level 20 and 25 elites when you get the priest up to level 20 and 25.
Regardless of the name, Elite Skills are not necessarily powerful, must-have skills. They are moderately difficult to learn, however, and help to further differentiate dual-class character experiences. All Elite Skills are Class-Specific, but you can learn both sets as long as you supply the materials for certificates to an Elite Skills Master while having the necessary class set as your primary.
How to Learn Elite Skills
Dwarves, Levels 15 to 50
At 15, 20, and 25 he does NOT take the certificate, so you only need ONE per level instead of one per level per class combo. Because of this, you need only get Old Bag ×8 (you can get a few extra, because everyone messes up at least once).
Sometime in 2020 or 2021 they fixed this. You still have to talk to Pulin Shadowhammer [Elite Skills Master], but now he consumes the Certificates just like every other Elite Skills Master, so you need one for each class combo.
Humans and Elves, Levels 15 to 50
Levels 15 to 45
Speak to an Elite Skills Master, such as Sigg Fletcher or Listi Pursdon in the Varanas Class Hall. He will request that you obtain some specific materials to trade for a Skill Training Certificate for your level. Use it and ask the Master to train you.
See Skill Training Certificate for a listing of the quests and materials needed.
Note: This series is a pre-requisite to  Making an Epic Weapon. Although it says you must have your level 50 Elite Skills, this is how it knows. You cannot bypass this step for the easier, newer path if you want your level 50 Epic weapon (aka Moa Weapon).

New Method (15 to 50)
In the Coast of Opportunity and Xaviera, you will come across quests that reward an Old Bag - these quests are infinitely repeatable and usually require you to use special abilities to achieve an objective.
Upon opening the bag, if both of your class levels are sufficient to learn a new elite skill, you will receive a Lv. X Elite Skill Certificate (Lv. 15, Lv. 20, etc.). Remember that you get two elite skills at each level point, based on your Primary/secondary classes. For an example, let's say you are a Mage/Warrior. You will get two skills at level 15/15. One for your level 15 M/W (Magical Talent), and a second for your level 15 W/M ( Electrical Rage). You must switch Primary/secondary before you open the Old Bag. If you mess this up all you will find in the bag is some gold, and you will need a new Old Bag to try again.
These certificates can be turned in to Lowen Dunlit in Coast of Opportunity at Heffner Camp to learn the skill for your primary/secondary class combination. At level 50, you will need to have all the Elite Skills (of primary and secondary class) before level 50 to learn it. Also, at level 50, you need only one Old Bag, as the skill you get will be unique to the intersection of your two classes.
Of course, this becomes more complicated if you have 3 or more classes but the rules above still apply.
An email arrives that directs you to go speak with Daris [Leader of Adventurers' Association].
When both your Primary AND Secondary classes are at least 60, speak to the NPC to start a quest series that will award you the Elite Skills. You will receive 2 skills at the same time.

If you have not already, it is highly recommended that you drop some ink at Sanctuary of Balance and Fallen Throne of Embers (where the dragon is sleeping) the first time you visit them. If you have not, you are gonna wish you did.
