- Leveling up will allow accounts to gain Mastery Points which may be spent to customize Heroes via their Mastery Tree.
- To view the new Mastery Trees for an individual Hero, go the Profile tab in the Lobby and choose the Hero you wish to view. From there, choose the Masteries tab to view the available choice in that Hero’s Tree.
- Mastery Trees are currently available for the following Heroes:
- Items available to buy in the Mastery Trees include the following:
- Tactics: Change how your Hero plays by slotting the appropriate tactic! Some will be passive tweaks to the Hero while others give a chance for effect based on triggers in combat. Pick the ones that match your play style.
- Alternate Abilities: Improve or change out your Hero’s core abilities with these beauties. Designed to complement your existing abilities or flat out replace them, you can pick how your Hero plays!
- Some items purchased with Mastery Points in a Hero Tree are specific to that Hero while others can be used on any Hero!
- As soon as you unlock a Mastery, it is immediately added to your Inventory screen which is shared by all Heroes. From there it can be slotted on any eligible Hero. For example, you can unlock Cripple from Bax's Mastery Tree, which is a tactic usable by anyone. Cripple may then be slotted on any Hero you like - not just Bax! However, if you unlock Bax's unique An' Stay Down! Mastery, it's only usable by Bax himself.
- To slot a Mastery, click on the Mastery you want to slot and then choose the Equip button on the bottom to put it in one of the three available slots for the Hero you are currently viewing.
- Each Hero has 3 slots available to them that will each hold one eligible Mastery from your inventory. Any given Mastery may only be slotted by one Hero at a time. However, you may find or unlock multiple copies of a Mastery, which will then allow you to slot each copy on a different Hero.
- When a Mastery is slotted, the icon for that Mastery will grey out if that was your only copy. If you had multiple copies, it will decrement the counter for that Mastery.
- Masteries that are ineligible for a particular Hero or are currently slotted elsewhere will be represented in grey.
- To unequip a Mastery, click on the slot you wish to change and then choose unequip at the bottom of the screen. This will return the Mastery to your inventory as available to use and change the icon color or increment its counter as appropriate.
- As noted above, only some Heroes have populated Mastery Trees. That being said, any Masteries that are usable by any Hero can be equipped on other Heroes via the Inventory screen.
- Note that the Mastery system is being introduced in this Beta and may change significantly over the course of our Betas.
New to this version is the introduction of Chests as a potential reward for a Spin at the end of the scenario.
- Chests will be one of the available rewards on each spinner. The rarity of the chest will vary by Spinner and the contents of the chest are random.
- Note that contents of the Chests are currently limited to Gold and selected test Masteries.
