Skill Titles & Order by Wolfheart Dragon, edited by Xena Dragon & Beans Baxter
Skill titles consist of two parts, the first indicates the level of competence, the second is the professional title.

Skill Titles
Skill Title Base Skill Needed
Legendary 120
Elder 110
Grandmaster 100
Master 90
Adept 80
Expert 70
Journeyman 60
Apprentice 50
Novice 40
Neophyte 30
No Title 29 or below


When a character has one skill over 30 (and believe me, you have to try very hard to get all of your skills under 30 ;-), the character is assigned a professional title that indicates their primary skill. This title is not shown to other players until you reach a higher level of fame, but there is a sense of satisfaction when one achieves the title they have been looking for. There is also certain amount of pride that goes along with saying “I’m a merchant” and having the professional title to prove it.

This chart outlines all of the professional titles associated with their skills. The skill that is displayed in your paperdoll is, by default, the highest skill that you have that is marked up (to raise the skill). You can choose which of your skills is shown by selecting ‘open titles menu’ from your character’s context menu.

Titles Menu, Context

You will notice that most of the list is sorted alphabetically, but that some skills seems to be in the wrong place. This is because the list is sorted according to the “original” skill script name that was used in the early Beta days of Ultima Online. For example: “Animal Taming” is sorted as if it said “Tame” and “Provocation” is sorted as if it said “Incite”. Also, some skills have been added at a later stage (such as Meditation, Remove trap and Stealth). Those skills have been added to the bottom of the list.

  1. I have a title not on your list. I have the option to be a “Novice Driven”, and I can’t for the life of me figure out what “Driven” is supposed to mean. The character is a newb healer, and the other title options are for biologist, healer and medium. But I can’t seem to find any information about “driven”. This list is the first I’ve found, and is extremely helpful…except that it doesn’t solve my mystery. XD
