Ratio of Master to Guru

I’m pretty new and I’m wondering what my ratio of Master to Guru to Apprentice should look like. Right now I have about 220 items mastered and 180 gurued. I try to keep my amount of items on apprentice from 30-70, but I feel like I may need to raise that to around 100 if you should have more items in guru than master. If anyone has any advice that would be great, cheers!

The higher tiers will usually have the highest number of items after a while, so most burns, then enlightened, then master, then guru, and finally apprentice at the bottom.


It takes 3 weeks to get an item from Guru to Master, and 4 weeks to get from Master to Enlightened, so in theory Master should have about 33% more items than Guru. In practice, Guru will probably have more items than expected because of mistakes.

Your stats look fine, but you also don’t need to worry about it - watching your Apprentice count (so you don’t get overwhelmed) is all you really need to do.


I tend to have more in master than guru, but only by a little, they are usually close, of course I have more items so it’s within a range of like 100 I’m counting by.

Either way, it doesn’t really matter though. As long as you’re learning.


I’m level 15 and mine currently look like this:

Your numbers look pretty similar ratio wise to mine, I wouldn’t over think it and just let the SRS do it’s thing.

The important part is just making sure you aren’t overloading yourself with reviews. I’m getting about 90 a day at the minute which is lower than I can manage, I normally keep my apprentice at about 120 and daily reviews around 140-150 is just about enough work for me, however my accuracy took a hit over the Christmas break so I rolled back the apprentice number until my accuracy went back up. (which it has so I’m gonna start doing a few more lessons each day, it doesn’t help I guru’d about 25 items this morning).

I’ve checked, and most of my levels the two had about the same number of items, it’s only once I stopped to do lessons that the guru count dropped significantly under the number of master items.

You’re fine.

Thanks guys!
