Do attack damage items also affect skill damage?

I know that there is a separate item for skill damage, but I’m just curious if attack damage also affects skill damage or simply your primary attacks and melee. Has anyone ever ran tests to confirm one way or another?

Just his basic attacks and melee.

Attack damage and skill damage are separate stats.


Thanks very much very clearing that up for me.

No problem.

Generally from my experience, the glove gear pieces give attack damage while the swords in a circle/oval give skill damage.

Though other gear pieces can give those stats as well, but those generally are the main sources for those stats, from what I can tell.
