Another important aspect of the game. Life skills not only bring you wealth by selling produced items or providing certain services, your character can also gain various bonuses by leveling your literature skills.

You need Energy (体力) in order to perform most life skills. You will only get a fixed amount of energy per day, so if you finished your energy for the day, you will need to wait another day for your energy to regenerate.

Your energy regenerates every 5 minutes, amount regenerated is based on your hunger. Note that if your hunger is at 0, you will start losing HP, but you will still regenerate a small amount of energy. You will not die of hunger, but theoretically you will only have 3/4 of your maximum HP left.

Your maximum energy is determined by your highest level life skill, VIP and guild territory level.

You earn Life Skill Experience (心得) by performing life skill, and your life skill will level eventually, unlocking new recipes in the process. However, you can only accumulate fixed amount of experience per day. You don’t need to force yourself to reach the capped experience for the day daily as the limit will get carried over to the next day as long as you have been online for at least 1 minute.
