Weapon MasteryUsing a weapon in combat against creatures results in gaining XP for that weapon’s Mastery when those creatures are defeated. Every weapon in the game can be mastered. Each Weapon Mastery has 2 Skill Trees, and each Skill Tree has a selection of active abilities, passive modifiers, and bonuses that are exclusive to that weapon. Leveling up in a Weapon Master grants a point that can be spent to unlock one of these abilities, passives, or bonuses. However, it is not possible to unlock everything between both Mastery Trees, so you’ll have to choose wisely. If you want to try out a different build for a weapon, you can respec its Mastery Trees in exchange for some Azoth. We will dive deeper into Weapon Mastery in the future.

Whether battling in wars with other players or holding back waves of The Corrupted, your combat skills will mean the difference between life and death. Next
