BDO Profession Levels Calculate Life Fame
|Life Fame Tier||Daily Pay (Silver)|
Profession Levels are used to determine your daily pay from Life Fame.
How to Calculate Life Fame:
Write down the number of all your Profession Levels for every character on your account that has Professional, Artisan, Master and Guru. Find this number by converting the Profession levels into a number. For example, Professional 1 is converted into 31 and Artisan 2 is converted into 42. Ignore any Profession Levels that are Skilled or lower.
- Guru: (1-20) 81-100
- Master: (1-30) 51-80
- Artisan: (1-10) 41-50
- Professional: (1-10) 31-40
- Skilled: (1-10) ignore
- Apprentice: (1-10) ignore
- Beginner(1-10) ignore
Divide the total Life Fame Levels of all characters by 2, and round down any decimal. Add total Guru levels (Guru 1-20 is level 81-100). Take that total and add 1. That is your Life Fame.
Life Fame Calculation:
rounddown(Total levels of Professional/Artisan/Master/Guru)/2 + (Total Guru Levels) + 1 = Life Fame
If you had 3 Life Skills:
You calculate your Life Fame like this:
40 + 41 + 52 = 133
133/2 = 66
66 + 1 = 67 Life Fame
