(Redirected from Skill Up Books)


Skill Up Books is a collective term that refers to items that increase a character's Skills in Combat and Magic use.

These books were implemented in the December 2013 Version Update as a way to assist adventurers in raising their skill levels.

Every book costs 200 Sparks of Eminence from the Records of Eminence NPCs. They can be purchased in increments of 1, 3, 12, or 36 at a time, with no limit on how many can be purchased.

Books can be purchased from the Auction House under Others ➞ Misc. 1, and sell in stacks of 12.

Skill Gain Rate

The amount of skill increase gained per book is random between 0.1 to 0.5, but the maximum amount of an increase seems to be lower as the difference between the skill cap and the current skill decreases. Furthermore, at least 0.1 skill is guaranteed to be earned per book that is used.

Below is a table with a rough outline of how much skill is gained per book used depending on current distance from the cap.

Maximum Skill Difference from Cap
0.5 > 100
0.4 99.9 - 50
0.3 49.9 - 20
0.2 19.9 - 10
0.1 < 10
