Virtual levelling is a feature that a player can enable. It allows players to see how far they have progressed past skill mastery (99), towards true skill mastery (120) (150 for elite skills). Virtual levelling was released on 5 October 2015. The maximum virtual total level is 3390 for members and 2106 for free players.

Although there is no content to unlock between levels 99 and 120 in any skill other than Dungeoneering, Invention, Slayer, Herblore, Farming and Archaeology players will still receive level up messages from other skills with this feature enabled. Players have the ability to set icons that will be displayed on a specific skill when it reaches the virtual level equivalent of level 120, and when the skill reaches 200 million experience.

To enable virtual levelling, players can find the feature in Game Settings under the Skills side menu of Gameplay tab in the Experience options.

Virtual levels are essentially cosmetic and has no impact on using the skill. Virtual levels are hidden when a Temporary skill boost is used.

Experience required[edit | edit source]

For non-elite skills the following experience is required for virtual levels 100-120.

Level XP Difference Level XP Difference Level XP Difference

For non-elite skills, virtual levels beyond 120 do not exist but can be calculated as follows.

Level XP Difference
121 115,126,838 10,853,671
122 127,110,260 11,983,422
123 140,341,028 13,230,768
124 154,948,977 14,607,949
125 171,077,457 16,128,480
126 188,884,740 17,807,283
Max 200,000,000 11,115,260

Elite skills naturally have true skill mastery at level 120 and follow a more linear experience curve. Virtual levels 121-150 can be calculated as follows.

Levels 121–130 Levels 131–140 Levels 141–150
Level XP Difference Level XP Difference Level XP Difference
121 83,370,445 2,751,791 131 114,558,777 3,433,547 141 153,104,021 4,214,231
