Masteries are a huge, and vital part of every champion build – at least those who you intend on taking to 60, as that final tier is oh so important! Getting these should not be ignored in any circumstance.
In Raid, there are 2 ways to obtain masteries:
But what’s the best way?
Farming Minotaur for a full set of mastery scrolls takes around 2000 energy per champion, which by no means is a small amount of energy especially if you do not spend on the game, which is why many people opt to spend 800 gems instead to instantly collect their mastery scrolls.
However, if you are able to, and have the time to farm Minotaur stage 15 (the highest level) you will be saving yourself around 140 gems per set of masteries if you instead convert gems to energy.
A full set of masteries works out as roughly 640 gems worth of energy refills which in the long run really does save you a huge amount of resources if you opt to do this, as not only do you get the masteries, you also accumulate some silver along the way – and if you’re smart about it, you can level up your champion at the same time!
Although this process is more time consuming, it is the kind of thing that can be done with an auto clicker such as RSL Helper and Bluestacks – RSL Helper even has a ‘Max masteries’ option that will automatically stop your runs when your champions have finished earning their masteries, so you do not waste energy while you sleep.
We would always highly recommend this approach as soon as you are able to farm stage 15 minotaur, or if you generally don’t have time to do this/no access to an auto clicker – in which case spending gems may be the better option for you (especially if you are a player who chooses to spend in the game, you may have a lot more gems than the typical F2P player)
Buying your masteries on your first level 60 Champion is a HUGELY useful thing to do, as farming the scrolls before stage 15 will take you a very long time, and this will speed up the process of you getting to that stage. You can also benefit from buying your first few sets of masteries if you’re unable to farm stage 15 yet.
so think carefully about your resources before you spend upwards of 100 extra gems for instant gain – this game is a marathon, not a sprint.
