Q: Class Build Advisor got me confused, cannot unlock skills further without non-advised skills.

Hello,
I'm playing a healer sorcerer, for it's build I'm using the skill advisor. It worked fine untill some of the (upgradable) healer skills required an X amount of levels from one of the other 2 specializations. Unfortunately the advisor does not tell me how to invest into these 2 others specs, it just says the amount of level. So now I'm unsure how to proceed using the advisor.
Is there another way to level these specs, witout investing skill points in them? I thought the advisor would tell me what to unlock.
Or do I have to put at least 1 point (or even multiple furter ingame?) in the other 2 specs, no matter which skill?

    Can you be more specific on which "2 others specs", @Eternicus? What skills or passives are you trying to get?

    For reference, here's a link to the UESP:

    That depends on the skill line itself.
    Weapon and armor. Skill lines can be levelled without investing skill points into them, the rest of the skill lines cannot.
    There are a ton skill points easily available in game, I would recommend picking up as many as possible and unlocking everything relevant to your build.
    If you have a skill that's locked in a skill line, unlock a previous but accessible skill until. You gain enough levels in that skill line.
    Later on you can refund unwanted skills for a small gold fee at many major cities so don't worry about picking up skills you won't be using later on.

    Ugh so sorry, I only clicked on the skill icons (on the upper left) of the advisor screen to level up my skils, not realizing they were restoration staff skills. Well now I know why my dps is so bad haha. I don't have points invested in any sorc class trait line so far.
    Sorry, I used to play alot of WoW years ago and that game has 3 specs for a class, and nothing more. I have to get used to ESO's trait line mechanic.

    Ah I read about respec but I thought it would cost a huge amount of gold (50 gold per point) at higher levels.
    But does that mean I can pick the skillls myself for refund? Or is it a full wipe of my toons build?

    I'm a bit confused. I made a toon for each class: 2 tanks (necro/dragon knight) and 4 healers (other classes). I'd prefer to play DPS while leveling my toons but I thought it would cost me tons of gold for a respec at maximum level. Or, lots of $$ for respec items from the Crown Store.

    Now I wonder, how long does it take (for a casual player) to gather the amount of gold needed for a full respec, when that toon is playing max level quests/dailies. My toons are about lvl 7 now, so each gold coin is precious :) I have no idea how much gold I earn for completing a max level quest.

    I went running around in the Imperial City Sewers for a few hours and left with a full inventory - sold it for ~25k gold to a merchant.

    Gold is cheap :)

    Thanks for the information everyone! After reading this I know I'll be fine with respeccing. I play 7 toons, each has one profession to master. It's going to take awhile to level them but I already spent loads of hours in the starting zone (Solitude and surroundings) and I still love it to just walk around, loot stuff and do some quests.
    I purchased a 1year Plus subscription so I can loot all the crafting materials I find, and have enough time to slowly level my professions with those crafting quests :)
