New Soulbeast player - main dagger skills greyed out

I am a pretty new player and have all the expansions. Loving the game so far and have yet to finish the last chapter of the personal story. Last night I hit level 80 when leveling up my cooking and immediately picked the dagger specialization skill. But when I put a dagger in my main hand, no skills show up in slots 1 - 3. When I look at the build tab, that weapon category has 3 skills but they are greyed out.

I assume this is because my character hasn't finished some pre-requisite. But for the life of me, I can't figure it out. And Google isn't being helpful at all.
Any kind soul out there that could give me a clue?

    Elite specilisations work like the core ones you unlocked while levelling up - to use them you have to have them equipped on the build tab. That includes the weapons, you can't use a main hand dagger on a ranger without the soulbeast specilisation equipped.

    Go to the build tab, click on the bottom specialisation and change it to Soulbeast. Then you'll be able to use the dagger.

    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings"

  • That worked. Thanks! lol I should of figured that one out. **wry grin**
