Proficiencies
Every action that consumes labor points in ArcheAge is part of a proficiency. This includes everything from mining or construction to farming, cooking, and gear crafting. Some of the more advanced gear and other craftable items, and even some harvestable nodes, require a minimum level in a given proficiency.

Proficiencies are raised by performing the related activity but in parallel the character gains experience too. That means one can raise the character level by proficiencies instead of combat if one choses to.

Last but not least using proficiencies causes a character to gain vocation points as well.

Labor PointsEdit

Labor points are the backbone of the crafting system in ArcheAge. Every "action" consumes labor points, from cutting down trees, to mining ore, to making cloth, and crafting gear. The amount of labor points consumed depends on the type of action and the level of that action within a category. For example, it takes more labor points to craft a level 40 piece of gear than it does to craft a level 10 piece of gear. Labor points regenerate at the rate of five labor points per five minutes, or in essence one labor point per minute. Unless you happen to be a Patron, if this be the case, labor points regenerate at 10 every 5 minutes while online and 10 labor points per 5 minutes while offline.

Labor Potions Edit

These can be consumed every 12 hours. This increases your labor by 1,000. Labor potions are tradeable and can be bought from the Marketplace.

Skill Tiers/LevelsEdit

Proficiencies reach a new level/tier evf the proficiency reaches the next 10.000 it is capped there until one chooses to unlock that proficiency for the next level/tier. There are currently five tiers possible:

Skill Points Skill Tier/Level
0 - 10 000 Novice
10 000 - 20 000 Apprentice
20 000 - 30 000 Journeyman
30 000 - 40 000 Expert
40 000 - 50 000 Master

A character can only have 5 skills/proficiencies at Apprentice level and higher or more precisely: one can have a maximum of 2 skills at Master level, 1 additional skill at Expert level, 1 additional skill at Journeyman level and 1 additional skill at Apprentice (makes a total of 5 skills at Apprentice level or higher). But this rule can be overcome by an item available in the Marketplace which allows to have more skills at Apprentice level and higher.

Increasing a skill/proficiency causes you to need less Labor Points for the same action and might give you other benefits.
