RIFT Nightmare Tide – Masteries

Masteries System Feature Image

Masteries are the new addition to the Soul system with the expansion RIFT 3.0: Nightmare Tide (22nd October 2014). Below you will find a basic run-down of the Mastery System in RIFT.

The Basics of Masteries

Here’s a rundown on the basics of what Masteries are.

  • Each level above Level 60 brings forth a new selection of Masteries.
  • Masteries are only visible at Level 61+. They appear to the right of your soul tree.
  • You gain Masteries instead of new Soul Points above Level 60.
  • You can choose one Mastery for each Level.
  • Your choice of Masteries are saved per spec, but you can change them when out of combat (so you don’t need to go to your Class Trainer to reset).

Some other things to note:

  • Abilities (mainly Level 65 Masteries) with multiple versions depend on your souls.
  • Ethereal Damage is a new damage type that currently has no resistance. You can consider it an armor/resist-piercing damage type.

    DAT MUCH masteries for DPS PVE, imho these masteries are the only bad side of 3.0, waiting for rework (now this look that everyone in role will use the same mastery for spec and for what we need here changing this without combat? Also too much copypasta)
    Almost every aspect of 3.0 seems good to me, but this is just like Bellamy said “meh”
