The first fifty levels of weapon skill, is the most important levels to gain, after that you do not get much more firepower.
There is a very simple equation, to find how many weapon skill points you need for each level.
level x level x 120
Where level is the level you already have. Example if you have weapon level 20 and you want to know how many point to get to level 21, you simply type 20 x 20 x 120 = 48000 points.
You can also see how many points you need, by using the right click menu and click personal. By holding the curser over the line it tells you how many points you have and how many are needed.
You can also see your skill progress in the status bar by holding your curser over the S, if you selected in options, to have your skill progress showed as points, you will see the points you have and how many are needed. If not you will see a line, as you do in personal, just here you cannot hold curser over it, to see the points.
