Skills Skills are a player's attributes that can be advanced throughout the game. Skills are trained by repeating actions that give experience in the skill until enough experience is earned to advance to the next level. Skills range from cooking food, to chopping trees and to casting magic. Some skills are "interlaced", meaning that they can be used together. For example, logs obtained from Woodcutting can be lit for Firemaking, which can then be used to cook food for Cooking.

A player levels up a skill.

There are 22 different skills in Anarchy.

All skills start out at level 1 except for Hitpoints, which starts at level 10. Players can advance any skill to level 99. After that, they can increase their experience up to 1,000,000,000 but get no more levels for doing so. See the HiScores for the relative rankings of the different skills.

All players are currently displayed on the HiScores regardless of level attained.

Experience increase

The amount of experience needed for every level-up increases approximately by 10% for every level. This is shown in the way that it is 83 experience between levels 1 and 2, but 91 experience between levels 2 and 3. (10% of 83 is roughly 8, therefore the next level-up would require 91 experience.) The required experience for each level-up grows exponentially; the growth of experience gaps between levels gets larger and larger at higher levels.

In addition, the experience required doubles approximately every seven levels. For example, the experience needed for level 92 in a skill is almost exactly half of that needed to reach level 99.
