# Do any of the high level players actually have unbalanced mana masteries?

#1

Just curious if anybody took a chance?
Thanks

#2

Depends on what you find ‘unbalanced’. My masteries are 99, 99, 100, 100, 100, 99 for blue, green, red, yellow, purple and brown respectively…

@MarvelKit Baka? Haha. I think he means having way more on one than the others. For example 66/103/65/63/66. I think this can´t be done. After a certain quantity of points, the system doesn’t let you choose the mastery to give it more until you have the others mastery closer. Well, I think that’s how it is.

#4

it’s impossible as you say, @Serale. When you choose yourself, you always get the two colors that have the least mastery. Not sure how that works with guild bonuses, though.

#5

Well my purple was about 40 when the others were only 10, it worked well when I was a noob due to getting carnax very early. Im about 100 even too now.

#6

Oh I see. Well, nice to know that, I had no idea to be honest, I never tried since the masteries have their cap, meaning the more you have the less worth each point. Instead of giving you 1% chance it decrease to 0.1% for example. (I dont know the real math but am pretty sure that’s how it works.)

#7

For any math-heads out there, we use a pretty common diminishing returns formula for Masteries & Mana Surge

``````SURGE CHANCE = MASTERY/(100+MASTERY)
``````

So:

• Mastery 0 = 0% chance
• Mastery 20 = 17% chance
• Mastery 50 = 33% chance
• Mastery 100 = 50% chance
• Mastery 200 = 67% chance

So it goes from 1 all the way down to 0.3? (The extra chance you get from each point)
To be honest I’ve never been good doing math. XD

My masteries are all within 1 point of each other… I change my team too often to risk having them unbalanced…
