301 – 450 250,000

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
Example:
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

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

Life Skill XP Changes on April 30th 2019

Patch Notes – April 30th 2019 Source

  • In order to alleviate the difference among Life Skill levels, the required EXP and obtained EXP have been readjusted for Hunting, Training, Farming, and Sailing.
    (However, Life Skill EXP obtained from quests will not change.)

    • We have decided to make adjustments for the 4 Life Skills above in order to alleviate the difference among Life Skills Levels. Therefore, we reduced required EXP for Sailing and increased obtainable EXP for Hunting, Training and Farming. We’ll bring our best to preserve the value of every Adventurer’s efforts.

      • Required EXP decreased – Sailing

      • Obtainable EXP increased – Hunting, Training, Farming, Sailing, Fishing, Trade

    • With the change of the obtainable and required EXP amount, Life Skill Level for Hunting, Training, Farming and Sailing will also increase proportional to the adjustment made.

Patch Notes – May 8th 2019: Source

  • Life Skill Level has been expanded.

    • While there are adventurers who have reached the Guru level in certain Life Skills, there are also certain Life Skills where adventurers are remaining at a relatively lower level.

    • Last week, we adjusted the amount of EXP required for each Life Skill in order to adjust for the amount of effort put into each Life Skill.

    • Also, in order to provide a target goal for adventurers who have already reached the top level, we have expanded all Life Skill levels up to “Guru 50”.

    • Due to the increase in Life Skill levels, you can now receive more benefits from the higher levels, and we will also continue to provide various updates to enhance the Life Skill content.
