That should help with the level question. As far as how long it takes, it varies. Some people flew up the ranks quick. I've been here for 15 months. It took me a almost 7 months to become Guru. But you also had more opportunities to earn Xper before. I know people who have been here for years that just Master this year. I guess it depends on how active you are.
I have been here for 1 year, 3 months and 19 days and it took me a little bit over just one year to become guru. I have actually went through the effort of making some calculations and based on my estimates, it will approximately take me a whole year to become a master. So that's one year to go exp1>exp2>exp3>exp4>exp5>exp6>exp7>exp8>exp9>exp10 And then another year to just go exp10>exp11
