Dou Qi Skill Ranking Edit
Dou Qi skill ranking is separated into 4 classes. The higher the level, the stronger the skill. Once you have reached Dou Practitioner, you are able to learn skills and abilities. Reading scrolls is the most common way to gain a new skill; however, there are other ways to obtain abilities. You can even develop new and unique abilities through rigorous training. Though uncommon, these are abilities that have never been seen before and are unique to you.
- Huang (Yellow): This is the first rank skill class and within each skill there is a further subclass as low/mid/high.
- Xuan (Black): This is the second rank skill category.
- Di (Earth): This is the third rank skill class.
- Tian (Heaven): This is the fourth rank skill class, it is the highest and most powerful skill class and as with each skill class there is a further subclass as low/mid/high.
- This ranking can also be applied to the Dou Qi practitioner's training methods.
This comes from the first line of the classic educational text, the Qian Zi Wen (Thousand Character Essay), which was written by Zhou Xingsi of the Liang Dynasty:
天地玄黄，宇宙洪荒. Tian Di Xuan Huang, Yu Zhou Hong Huang. Sky Earth Black Yellow, Time Space Primordial-Chaos.
This is a ranking according to how strong the person is. In this land whoever has strength, has dignity. Without strength you are nothing. As you train your Dou Qi level you gain status and rank, within each Dou Qi rank there are sub ranks indicated as stars when you reach nine stars you have the potential to rank up. e.g. - a nine star Dou Practitioner will rank up to Dou Master with his next Dou Qi increase. The gap between each stars will increase as each one pass each rank and the rate of increase would also increase.

Receptarier Ranking Edit
Receptarier comes from the word receptary (which means "that which is received"). They are basically alchemist and can mix various ingredients ranging from common to godly items, to create pills and potions. There are very few receptariers in the world, thus having one in your household is considered a blessing from the heavens. Receptariers are ranked from 1st Stage to 9th Stage. After the 9th stage there is a stage which has not been achieved for thousands of years, similarly to the Dou Di. This stage is known as the Di Stage.
