Skill titles

Version 0.21: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Your character will be given a skill title based on their current skill set. To determine the title, a character's skills are placed into five tiers: Lvl 1-7, 8-14, 15-20, 21-26, and 27. Your character's title is determined by their highest skill -- any time a different skill surpasses your current highest skill, your title will change to reflect it. Your title will also change when your current highest skill reaches a new tier. The first skill to reach level 27 will determine your character's final title.

**Determined by (upper) body size: Fly (Spriggans and Felids), Feather (Halfling, Kobold and Tengu, despite being middle-sized), Middle (Humans and everyone else not included in other categories), Cruiser (species with torso smaller than lower body, ie. Nagas and Centaurs) and Heavy (Ogres and Trolls).

***Octopode: Plane Wriggler; Tengu: Plane Glider; Naga: Plane Slider; Vine Stalker: Plane Stalker

**** The invocations titles above will be used if the character is currently following no god. A skilled invocations-user will otherwise use the title assigned by their god and piety level, such as "Missionary" for 3-star Beogh. A table for this can be found below.

***** Title determined by whether you worship a good or an evil god.

Invocations Titles

Titles for the invocations skill depend on piety level and god being worshipped. Gods which don't require training invocations still have titles based on them, although will mostly only be encountered when playing as a gnoll.

Gozag Pauper Entrepreneur Capitalist Rich Opulent Tycoon Plutocrat

Since Uskayaw has a different piety gain system, the invocations titles work off invocations skill:

God Level 0-7 Level 8-14 Level 15-20 Level 21-26 Level 27
Uskayaw Wallflower Party-goer Dancer Rapturous Rhythm of Life and Death


Xom: Toy, irrespective of piety or interest.

*For Kikubaaqudgha, having Necromancy as the highest skill will also result in these titles.
