BDO Profession Levels Calculate Life Fame

Life Fame Silver/Day
10 – 150 100,000
151 – 300 175,000
301 – 450 250,000
451 – 600 325,000
601 – 750 400,000
751 – 900 475,000
900+ 600,000

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

Family Fame

Life Fame contributes to Family Fame. Add all three fame types together to obtain your Family Fame total:

Family Fame = Life Fame + Combat Fame + Special Fame

Family Fame Market Rewards:

A tax discount is applied to the Central Market taxes for selling items. The tax discount depends on the Family Fame like the below:
