Prompt to choose between timed and untimed practice.

Timed practice is an item purchasable in the Lingot Store.


Race against the countdown clock up to complete exercises. You begin with 30 seconds (50 seconds in X). Time gets added to the clock for each correct response you give. The practice ends when you complete all 20 of the exercises or run out of time. You earn 1 XP for each correct response. Once it's been purchased, it is accessible via either of the "Practice" buttons.

You also earn 5, 10, or 15 seconds for every question you answer correctly.

Timed practice is available only via web, both in the desktop site and in the mobile site.
