Strengthening the skills

How many times do i have to strengthen a skill until it turns gold (the strength level is 4/5, but i tried two times and it didnt turn gold). How does it work can someone explain it to me?

Sometimes it takes several strengthening tries because the skill strength is based on the strength of each individual word in that skill.


I think you just have to keep strengthening it until it turns gold. It happened to me a few times and that's what I did, hope that helps!


being gold is based on individual word strength so a weak word may not be coming up on general strengthens of this skill, try going back and doing all of the lessons to make sure you get the weak word
