Alternate Advancement of all types is commonly called AA. Instead of gaining a new spell or combat art automatically, as is the case with leveling up, players earn individual points that can be "spent" to refine existing skills or add extra abilities. Pressing L while in-game opens the user interface window with all AA options for both adventure skills and tradeskills. For more details on the general way Alternate Advancement (AA) works, see the article on Alternate Advancement. If you would like to learn more about more about the Tradeskill focused AA that can be gained between level 10 and 90 see Tradeskill Alternate Advancement.

Tradeskill Prestige is a system of alternate advancement released with the Chains of Eternity expansion. A player can begin to earn Tradeskill Prestige Points once they attain level 90 in a tradeskill. For every 20% of a level past 90 a player automatically earns 1 Tradeskill Prestige Point or in other words 5 tradeskill prestige points per level.

If your character was already past level 90 when Chains of Eternity was released you will have Tradeskill Prestige Points in your alternate advancement window ready to be spent.

The Chains of Eternity expansion is required to be able to spend Tradeskill Prestige Points.
