Masteries are special passive abilities that enhance a Champion’s performance by improving their Stats, upgrading their Skills, or giving them entirely new and unique bonuses.
Masteries fall under one of three branches - Offense, Defense, or Support - to help Champions specialize for their role.
Each Champion can only unlock Masteries from up to two Branches at the same time.
There are 6 Tiers of Masteries in each Branch. Champions cannot unlock Masteries that are from Tiers higher than their Rank. For example, to unlock a Tier 5 Mastery, a Champion must be Rank 5 or higher.
To unlock Masteries, Champions will need to win Scrolls from the Minotaur's Labyrinth.
Mastery Scrolls can only be found as a reward in the Minotaur’s Labyrinth, but you can instantly upgrade a Champion’s Masteries using Gems from within the Mastery interface.
There are three types of Mastery Scrolls:
- Basic Scrolls. Used to unlock Tier 1 and 2 Masteries.
- Advanced Scrolls. Used to unlock Tier 3 and 4 Masteries.
- Divine Scrolls. Used to unlock Tier 5 and 6 Masteries.
Mastery Scrolls are different to all other items in RAID in that a Champion has to earn them for themselves by participating in battles.
Every time you beat a stage in the Minotaur’s Labyrinth, one of the Champions on your team will receive Scrolls. Once a Champion earns Scrolls, they belong to that Champion and nobody else.
The Champion that receives Scrolls will be selected at random from those in Battle, after excluding those that cannot receive any Scrolls. Champions that have already earned all the Scrolls they could use from any given Minotaur’s Labyrinth Stage will no longer receive any more Scrolls.
Which Scrolls you can earn depends on the Stage of the Labyrinth; on lower Stages, you can only earn Basic Scrolls, but as you take on higher Stages, you will eventually be able to earn Advanced and then Divine Scrolls.
You can also get all the Scrolls needed to unlock a Champion's Masteries for 800 Gems.
You can only unlock Masteries on two of the three Branches at any one time.
As you unlock Masteries in each Branch, they get progressively stronger as the Tiers increase. You can only unlock Masteries that are adjacent to the ones you have unlocked, as follows:
- Vertically below, in the next-highest Tier
- Diagonally below, in the next-highest Tier
- Horizontally, in the same Tier, either the left or to the right
You can unlock:
- Only 1 Tier 1 Mastery in each Branch
- Up to 3 Masteries in total per Tier for Tiers 2-5 (across both Branches; no more than 2 per Branch)
- Only 1 Tier 6 Mastery (one from either Branch, but not one from both)
If you want to change a Champion’s Mastery setup after you’ve already unlocked and chosen their Masteries, you can always reset them and start again. Resetting a Champion’s Masteries returns all the Scrolls you had used and you get to freely select a new Mastery build.
Each Champion gets one free Mastery Reset, after which, each reset costs 150 Gems.
