Mastery is a new mechanic that is permanently unlocked once the player reaches zone 181 for the first time. It allows the player to spend Dark Essence, a new currency gained by using the Scryer formation, on various new upgrades.
A new Scryer formation will unlock once the player reaches zone 181 for the first time, which will then always unlock after the player breaks the planet.
This formation allows the player to find Dark Essence, a new currency used in purchasing Masteries.The formation provides a 3% chance to drop Dark Essence per each cell in the world. The formation must be enabled for the entire duration of the fight for it to be active.
Dark Essence can only be found zone 181 or higher. Below that, the Scryer formation can be used to double loot from enemies.
OverviewEditMasteries are a system similar to perks, but made up of things that typically wouldn't make for good perks. The base cost for the first one is 10 Dark Essence, and increases by 3x each time a Mastery is bought. After 25 Masteries have been bought, the scaling cost increases from 3x to 6x.
There are currently 40 Masteries in total. At the beginning, only the first row (5 Masteries) is unlocked. Buying Masteries will unlock further rows.
- To unlock the second row, 3 Masteries need to be purchased in total.
- To unlock the third row, 4 further Masteries need to be bought, 7 in total.
- To unlock the fourth row, 4 further Masteries need to be bought, 11 in total.
- To unlock the fifth row, 5 further Masteries need to be bought, 16 in total.
- To unlock the sixth row, 7 further Masteries need to be bought, 23 in total.
- To unlock the seventh row, 5 further Masteries need to be bought, 28 in total.
- To unlock the eighth and final row, 5 further Masteries need to be bought, 33 in total.
For those Masteries, the previous tier has to be bought first if the player wants to buy the next tier. For example, even if the player has unlocked the third row of Masteries by purchasing 7 other Masteries, Headstart II will not be purchasable if Headstart I was not purchased, and the button will glow red indicating this.
For the price of 20 Bones, all purchased Masteries can be reset and the spent Dark Essence retrieved by pressing the Respec button in top right.

Dark Essence lootEdit
Dark Essence has a 3% chance to drop every world cell beaten fully with the Scryer formation. When it drops, it gives a set amount which is the result of the following formula:
(1.1683885 ^ ([Current zone] - 180)) / 3
The final result is rounded down. If the resulting number is 0, the game will drop 1 Dark Essence.
Once all current Masteries have been purchased its no longer possible to gain additional Dark Essence.
Here's a table depicting the results:
|Zone||Dark Essence dropped|
Mastery Costs Edit
|Mastery number||Individual Cost||Cumulative Cost||Zone to reach|
- ↑ This is the zone where you can pay the Individual cost in a single run, with average drop. In practice players will make multiple runs and be able to afford Masteries earlier.
- ↑ Starting from this Mastery, the price scaling increases from 3x to 6x.
- In patch V4.5, 15 new masteries are added as three new tiers. Also, the price scaling for these masteries are increased from 3x to 6x.
- After patch V4.3, the Mastery Table was changed in several ways, listed here:
- The Home Detector 1 and 2 Masteries where combined in to a single T1 Mastery, which now also includes Nurseries.
- The Tier 2 Foremany Mastery and Tier 3 Double Build Mastery were moved two columns to the right.
- The Metallic Coat Mastery from was moved T4 to T2.
- AutoStructure was added as a Tier 4 mastery, requiring Double Build.
- After patch V4, the Dark Essence drop formula was changed to use 1.1683885 as the per zone increase, instead of 1.11613, rapidly increasing the number of drops. 6 new Masteries were added, and a couple of the old ones were rearranged. Foremany II was removed and merged into Foremany.
- After patch v3.71, Dark Essence drop rate was increased to 3% from 1%, but the result of the Dark Essence loot formula was slashed by 3x before rounding. This makes the most difference at the very start when Dark Essence drops give 1-2 each, as the reduction doesn't apply/is far less in this area.
- Mastery was introduced in patch v3.7.
- Portal Generator and Bounty Hunter grant the rewards from the Dimension of Anger and The Wall respectively. This means that neither maps retains their unique drop, and will show up red after obtaining the mastery.
- Home Detector 1 and 2 don't pick up the Housing upgrades, e.g. UberHut.
