There are calculators of skills in these 2 websites:

- https://tibia.fandom.com/wiki/Calculators

In this one you can easily calculate how many exercise weapons you will need to use to skill up. Every exercise weapon lasts 15minutes, so there is a maximum of 4 weapons that can be used every hour.

This one calculates how many potion/food/ammunition would you spend if you decide to manual training.

Using these 2 tools, I did some maths for my own, to give you an idea of the waste:

**To increase distance fighting from 118 with 80% to go to 119:**

__Exercise weapons:____With House dummy:__ 149 exercise bows (39kk), what would take me one day and a half of training.__Without House dummy:__ 164 exercise bows (43kk), what would take almost 2 days.

**Manual training:**__With Flaming arrows:__ I would spend 4.3kk, but would take me more than 4 days of 'double exp/skills days'.

**About magic level: to increase it from 33 with a 40% to 34:**

__Exercise weapons:____With House dummy:__ 65 exercise wands/rods (18.6kk), 16 hours aprox.__Without House dummy:__ 71 exercise wands/rods (18.6kk), 18 hours aprox.

**Manual training:**__With strong manas:__ It would take 3 days and 6 hours (22.5kk)

For me, as a RP I always prefer using rod/wands for training with dummy, and manual training for distance during the double exp weekend, and without it too.
