Each profession has 5 ranks (levels) defined in points. The maximum number of points is 50 000 for each profession. You earn points for every action of a definite profession. Here is a list of ranks:
||0 – 10 000
||10 000 – 20 000
||20 000 – 30 000
||30 000 – 40 000
||40 000 – 50 000
When you reach the required amount of points, to advance to the next level, you will see up and down arrows next to the name of the profession. The “Up” arrows allow you to advance to the next rank if you wish. NOTE: you can’t level all professions in ArcheAge to Master. There are restrictions. There are 21 professions right now and each player can advance up to 5 of them to Apprentice rank, from which 4 can be Journeyman rank, 3 can be Expert rank, leaving only 2 which can be leveled to Master.
So the crafting cap for one character is: 2 Master rank professions, 1 Expert, 1 Journeyman and 1 Apprentice (5 in total). As you see a character will have to set focus on limited number of professions and can become Master only in 2 of them.
Benefits from Leveling
- -When you level up a profession you decrease labor consumption for all actions within that profession.
- -It’s a great way to spend less labor power.
- -Sometimes new ranks will give you new possibilities / recipes. For example you may be allowed to collect higher level resources or to use higher level items for crafting.
