How am I able to get extra experience when training a certain skill? For example, are there any items to modify the amount of experience I get for a certain skill?

NOTE: Since 8 October, items such as pendants and recharge gems no longer need to be equipped to give bonus experience. If you have a pendant (they were removed 31 October from the Squeal of Fortune), right click it and select "gain-xp". You will get bonus experience in that skill.


There are many items which do this, most which are skill-specific:

Bonus experience items for all skills:

  • Not necessarily an item, but the Clan Avatar. Gives a 3% skill bonus if the clan avatar has a skill experience boost and is on the same world as you. Gives a 6% boost if you gain experience near the avatar.
  • The Wisdom aura. Boost experience gain by 2.5% for 30 minutes.
  • Pendants and Prized Pendants of skill. These are skill-specific, but there is one for each skill. You can't choose which skill pendant you receive.
  • Prismatic and Prized prismatic pendants, on the other hand, can be used to choose the skill of your choice. It will turn into the relevant pendant.

Note: Pendants are no longer obtainable but still exist in-game. They have been replaced by fallen stars

  • Fallen stars act the same way as pendants did. You use them up and they give you bonus experience.

Whoa, props for compiling such a complete list. One thing to mention, though, is that some of these items function differently than others. For example, some equipment gives a constant percentage boost while worn, some with set bonuses (i.e. lumberjack/artisan/etc. outfits). As of the most recent update, however, items like Citadel rings and skill pendants work differently: instead of requiring players to wear them to benefit from their XP-doubling charges, the bonus XP is transferred directly to the player to be gained over time, and the items become cosmetic or are destroyed altogether. –  Will R.

@WillR. Mhm, this is a recent update that should be mentioned. I'll edit my answer later:3 –  Haidro Oct 11 '13 at 20:07
