Mastery

  • Further reduces the regeneration penalty.


Properties

  • Increases existing armor (resistances).
  • Especially effective in combination with Toughness skill (which provides all armor types).
  • This skill will unlock item attributes that require Armor Lore skill (like "Defense (Armor Lore)).
  • In the later game, Damage Mitigation % becomes a fairly common armor modification that requires Armor Lore Mastery (75 or more hard skillpoints) to unlock.
  • "Item Level Without Penalty" reduces the speed penalties for equipping high-level armor, and can help with unmounted run speed. This skill doesn't allow equipping armor above certain threshold (which depends on character level - see Items/Usable Item Levels)


Breakpoints

  • Item level without penalty is increased by one for every two skill points spent, starting at character level value. It is capped at 250.
  • Regeneration time bonus depends on character level and item quality. It decreases at every level-up, forcing you to spend more points into this skill.


The Armor bonus at a given skill level x is given fairly precisely by the following formulas:

  • 400*(x+1.5)/(x+100) Pre-Mastery
  • 600*(x-32.5)/(x+66) Mastery

The bold marked numbers are the smallest upper bounds of this progression, which will never at any skill level be exceeded.

As an example, attack and defense at x=75: 75 is the first mastery level, so we take the mastery formula and we have

600*(75-32.5)/(75+66) = 600*42.5/141 = 180.85

This value compared with the table value is a good example of the precision the formulas offer.
