Because you aren't actually doing the actions your character is partaking in, there is no way for you yourself to get better at them. You roll a d20.

I'd just like to highlight that this abstraction completely undercuts any other point you can have about level abstraction as a button on a gamepad or mouse or keyboard is as much an abstraction as selecting actions and rolling a d20 in regard to the actual physical action. Your variables may appear different, but it is no closer to firing a real bow than the d20.
