Applying for an Advancement Exam

  • To pass the exam, you use the skill being tested to score points.
  • You may only pass one exam per day.

Taking the Advancement Exam

  • After applying, you will be transferred into the examination room.
    • You will role-play as your own character with an Advancement Outfit of your Dan Rank, modified weapons and tools.
    • You will also retain your own character's skills and their rank during the exam.
    • Your stats inside the exam will be modified.
  • The following are also unavailable during the exam:
    • Titles
    • Potion Poisoning
    • Bonuses from Foods
      • However this only applies to short-term food effects and not long-term temporary stat gain.
    • Transformation Skills (Paladin/Dark Knight, Falcon, Beast)
    • Escape Bombs
  • The enemies in the exam may drop potions.
  • When you exit the examination room, your experience points, skill proficiencies, hot keys, and titles will be restored to their former values.


  • If you die during a combat-related Skill Advancement Exam, you lose 100 points. After 10 seconds, you will automatically be revived with Full Recovery.
  • When doing the Combat Mastery Advancement Exam, normal attacks and any melee attacks give points, using Defense also provides points.
    • When taking the exam for Combat Mastery, note that it's a good idea to use Windmill because it will help gain more points in 1 attack
  • When doing Ranged Attack Advancement Exam, only damage hit by using a normal range attack will count as score points. Magnum Shot, Arrow Revolver, Mirage Missile will not count as score points.
  • When doing Water Cannon Advancement Exam, half the damage of your highest Water Cannon hit will be added to your score as bonus points at the end.
  • Important: When doing an exam involving combat, you are assigned specific skills. They keep the ranks that your character has before going in, however. Due to this ranking skills related to your test to 1 (or the cap) will give you an extra edge in the test.
  • When you go into an exam relating to life skills, there will be an Examining NPC in the middle of the room.
    • The Examiner will have an equipment worn besides the Advancement Suit on its Body, Hand, and Foot. Your task is to make the same item that they are wearing. You can only know what it is by looking at the Examiner NPC.
    • The needed materials to make the equipment can be obtained by pressing [Trade] with the NPC. The Gold needed to buy the materials will be given to you at the starting of the exam. However, the amount of gold is limited and you will not be able to obtain more gold than what you are already given, so beware that you do not buy any unnecessary materials.
      • You can make multiple items of the same equipment and choose the one with the best quality to be given for examining.
    • You will be graded on the Quality and time it took you to make the item.
    • Talk to the Examiner NPC to hand in the equipment for examination.
      • If you give the Examiner NPC a totally different item from what you were required to make, the Examiner will not take the item.
