BDO Profession Levels Calculate Life Fame

Life Fame Tier Daily Pay (Silver)
10-150 100k
151-300 175k
301-450 250k
451-600 325k
601-750 400k
751+ 500k

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.

  1. Guru: (1-20) 81-100
  2. Master: (1-30) 51-80
  3. Artisan: (1-10) 41-50
  4. Professional: (1-10) 31-40
  5. Skilled: (1-10) ignore
  6. Apprentice: (1-10) ignore
  7. 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:
Professional 10
Artisan 1
Master 2

You calculate your Life Fame like this:
40 + 41 + 52 = 133
133/2 = 66
66 + 1 = 67 Life Fame

BDO Crafts: Speed Leveling to Quickly Earn Daily Money

You can easily achieve 750 Life Fame by getting 10 characters to Professional 1 in 5 Life Skills. Each skill that is at Professional 1 level gives +15 Life Fame. Each alt would give +75 Life Fame.

NOTE: You have to switch characters or channels for Life Fame to update after raising Life Skill Levels.
