Talking to Mods in the Beta, I can confirm that Mastery has been scrapped due to negative feedback from players. What are your thoughts on this? It's one less job to do!


My thoughts?
They shouldn't have scrapped it, but reworked it into actually rewarding the players who are going to be there making metal gear every day.

But that's me. I liked the original pitch of Masterwork and Energised gear, where it took 80 hours to make. :P

When I saw mod jack on stream he said he wanted to update the docs and re-release so I assume there's still some post 99 content, but if people are already complaining about the time it takes to make stuff maybe they're making it need more monster drops with less time or making it be different from just normal smithing for a really long time. Definitely needs post 99 content.

Invent is an elite skill, mastery was more giving people post 99 content that would be profitable or useful with little exp reward, so it would've taken weeks on the original design to make a tier 90 with 90 stats smithable armour set using different tier'd resources and some low level monster drops which could then be upgraded using higher tier monster drops to create the best melee armour in game (t92) and could then be upgraded again as combat was upgraded meaning you could always smith the highest gear yourself but it would take a long time and need more variety of materials. And anyone who didn't want to spend the time/resources to make it could either use monster drop equipment at lower level or buy energised T92 making the skill profitable for people who put the effort in.
