There are four Skills in Hero World: Detective, Medicine, Electronics, and Swimming. The four skills have corresponding Missions. Completing a number of missions of a certain skill allows you to advance in that skill. The higher you advance in a skill lets you perform more advanced (and thus, more lucrative) missions in that skill, and increases your odds of successfully completing lower-level missions.
Advancing your skill to a higher level used to require a set number of Friends as well as missions and a fee. This was changed to require a waiting time in lieu of the Friends requirement. The wait can be skipped by paying a number of Hero Points. The waiting time can be reduced by having a Friend in the "Professor Y" slot in Superfriends.
The Skills used to be found in a separate University tab; they are now found in the Skills section of the My Hero tab.
