The Milestones of Wanikani Progress

Milestone 1: Having more Gurus than Apprentices.
Milestone 2: Having more Masters than Gurus
Milestone 3: Having more Enlightens than Masters
Milestone 4: Having more Burns than Enlightens

Which milestone have you reached? I’m at 3 and a quarter of the way to 4.

I’m at Milestone 2, but both Master and Gurus keep getting bigger and sometimes Gurus passes Masters

I have almost 93% burned, which means almost 13 times more items burned than unburned

Interesting, but I’m not too sure how much of a “milestone” these things really are. For example, you’re more than 10 levels ahead of me, yet I’ve reached your Milestone 4 a while ago just because I stopped doing new lessons for like 6 months. At this point nearly half of everything I’ve learned on WaniKani has been burned.

Yes, due the nature of the SRS it’s really just a function of how long you’ve been doing reviews. I’m in a similar situation as you with 1730 burned and a total of 1575 in all other levels.

you do have to get them right consistently to burn them though, so i guess it works as milestones.

Well I have Milestone 4, but took a break and forgot many things so I am not currently past any of the other Milestones. Thus if you intend these milestones to be linear, they are not.

I guess the milestones works linearly if no break is taken? Only at milestone 1 so far.

1 is still a milestone. would be a boring ride if you’d be done with the sights already and from now on, there’s only tunnel :slight_smile:

Currently at Milestone 1, but I was really excited when I started getting my first entries into Master! It really helped me feel like I was making good progress! Here is hoping that continues! =D

An update! I made it to the next milestone. It is nice to see when progress like this happens and I can see it because of a post like this from a few weeks ago! Makes it more real that way haha!

I’ve also made it to milestone 2! (A while ago, but forgot to look for it!)

After ages… it seems likes weeks, of just being on the edge, yesterday my number of Englightened items finally overtook my number of Mastered items :tada:
