# Skills

By clicking on Skills, this is where you can see your Combat level and your Mining Level.

You can hover over these and they will display the following:

* Level —> Your current level

* Experience —> Your current total experience

* Next Level —> Your total of experience needed for the next level

* Remaining —> The difference between your Next Level and Experience showing you how much is left to obtain

## Masteries

If you have obtained any Masteries, you will see them under the Masteries heading.

You can hover over them see what it does, what level it is, how much experience you have, the next level and how much experience is remaining for you to gain a level.

These are purchased with Gold and you also have to meet certain requirements through the Unlock Masteries button and if available, you will have a “Add To Queue” button next to each Mastery that you have. Each Mastery has a maximum of 5 tiers to obtain.

Masteries can be quite complicated and it is entirely up to you as a player where to focus your efforts but we will go into further detail later on.

## Mastery Exp

The amount of exp required to level up masteries depends on the multiplier of the mastery. Higher multipliers multiply the exp required at each level.

For a mastery with a 1x multiplier, this is the exp required to reach each level:

Level 1: 12 Exp –> 1 hour

Level 2: 60 Exp –> 5 hours

Level 3: 252 Exp –> 21 hours

Level 4: 828 Exp –> 69 hours –> 2.9 days

Level 5: 1,980 Exp –> 165 hours –> 6.9 days

## Mastery Queue

This shows you what is currently being researched by you. Only 1 Mastery will ever level at a time and it is done automatically. You earn 1 experience automatically every 5 minutes.

If you add anything to the Mastery Queue, you must ensure you click the Save Queue button in green, otherwise it will not update. If you don't have VIP, when you save, only the top 3 masteries will remain. To have an unlimited queue, you may want to think about getting VIP Status.

## Unlock Masteries

If you click on the blue Unlock Masteries button, it will bring you to a section where you can purchase masteries with gold to unlock them and then train them to get their benefits.

They are filtered into 3 sections:

Clicking on either will take you to that particular mastery set.
