Masteries: Unasked questions


After clarifying what masteries are and understanding the great importance they have for your champion, there comes the next question: how many mastery pages should I build? Are there 2 pages, one for AD, one for AP, enough to fulfill my needs?

Best Masteries

League of Legends

I would say no and I propose 9 pages of masteries classified by the type of champion you’re playing and its role in the game. Of course, this number is not the standard. After you get more advanced in the game, you might make your own masteries pages depending on what role you play in the team and on what your champion’s needs. This being said, the 9 pages you’ll need are the following: Standard Marksman Page; two pages for mid lane – AP burst caster, AD Assassins; support masteries – AP supports, Ranged Utility Supports, Tanky Support Masteries; Jungler Masteries – AD jungler and AP jungler; Top Lane Masteries – tank top laners.

Marksman’s Choice

Marksman masteries

For the standard page for marksman, we’re definitely starting with the Ferocity (offensive) tree first as the main job of an AD carry is to kill as many crits as possible. So, the 30 points would go to, on one hand, Ferocity18 points and, on the other hand, Cunning 12 points as it goes: 5 points in Sorcery, 1 point in Feast, 5 points in Vampirism, 1 point in Bounty Hunter, 5 points in Battering Blows and 1 point in Fervor of Battle. The 12 points in Cunning should be allocated in the following manner: 5 points in Savagery, 1 point in Secret Stash, 5 points in Merciless and 1 point in Dangerous Game. The only exception to this build-up is Graves, who, as a result of its strong synergy with the item Death’s Dance, almost always should get Warlord’s Bloodlust.

Mid Masteries

Mid masteries

If you choose to go mid lane, then you would need to choose between AP burst caster or AD Assassins. You should know that the mastery Thunderlord’s Decree is still in the top preferences among the burst casters and assassins, but some sustained damage dealers are choosing Deathfire Touch for the increased damage it assures over time. Mastery Planner for AP is made out of 12 points in Ferocity and 18 in Cunning. The points repartition in Ferocity: 5 points in Sorcery, 1 point in Feast, 5 points in Natural Talent and 1 point in Bounty Hunter. For Cunning: 5 points in Savagery, 1 point in Secret Stash, 5 points in Merciless, 1 point in Dangerous Game, 5 points in Precision and 1 point in Thunderlord’s Decree.

Something to pay attention to – for AD mid laners such as Zed or Talon, the mastery page is very similar, except that it is more useful to swap the Secret Stash with the Assassin mastery. So, if your mid champion is an AD Assassin then masteries should look like this: 5 points Sorcery, 1 point Feast, 5 points Vampirism and 1 point Bounty Hunter in Ferocity. For Cunning there goes: 5 points Savagery, 1 point Assassin, 5 points Merciless, 1 points Dangerous Game, 5 points Precision.

Masteries: Resolve


Resolve Mastery Tree

lol Mastery guide

The Resolve Mastery Tree from League of Legends’ Season 6 is one of the three Mastery branches. It replaces the defensive mastery tree of previous seasons. It works best on champions who need to build defensive items.

Analysis of Talents

League of Legends Masteries

The Resolve masteries on Tier 1 are Recovery and Unyielding. Recovery offers +0.4 Health per 5 seconds (for one point) while, for the same point, Unyielding offers +1% Bonus Armor and Magic Resist.

On Tier 2, you can allocate only one point on either Explorer for +15 Movement Speed in Brush and River, or on Tough Skin that grants you less damage from champion and neutral monster basic attacks.

After investing 6 points in Resolve, the 3rd tier is unlocked and you can allocate 5 points on Runic Armor and Veteran’s Scars. As the name suggests it, Runic Armor offers you shield, healing, regeneration and lifesteal in order to make you stronger. So, in the Resolve Tree it gives you an excellent boost on heal. Veteran’s Scars increases your Health with a maximum of 50 units.

The next step is choosing between Insight and Perseverance. Insight reduces the cooldown of Summoner Spells by 15%, while Perseverance offers +50% Base Health Regen, increased to +200% when your champion is below 25% Health.

On Tier 5, Swiftness increases Tenacity and Slow Resist, Legendary Guardian helps the team as it offers Armor and Magic Resist for each nearby enemy champion.

The last Tier consists of three masteries: Grasp of the Undying, Strength of the Ages and Bond of Stone. Grasp of the Undying – every 4 seconds in combat, your next attack against an enemy champion deals damage equal to 3% of your max Health and heals you for 1.5% of your max Health (halved for ranged champions), deals magic damage. Strength of the Ages – you permanently gain Health (300 maximum) for you or allies killing certain nearby units: siege minions: +20 Health, large monsters: +10 Health. At the max bonus, these kills instead restore 6% of your Maximum Health. Bond of Stone – +4% Damage Reduction. 6% of the damage from enemy champions taken by the nearest allied champion is dealt to you instead. Damage is not redirected if you are below 5% of your maximum health.


LoL Masteries

The mastery choice in the case of tanky supports is “Grasp of the Undying” vs “Bond of Stone”. Grasp of the Undying deals more damage, but Bond of Stone helps reduce damage all around. It is important to mention that tank support players tend to allocate 5 points for Recovery, 1 point for Tough Skin, 5 points for Veteran’s Scars, 1 point for Insight, 5 points for Legendary Guardian and 1 point for Bond of Stone. For tank junglers, a good pick would be the Strength of the Ages keystone mastery since Grasp of the Undying isn’t worth it anymore, after the nerfs. It provides decent scaling and it suits the majority of champions that are there for the utility and already have a decent amount of sustain.

Masteries: Cunning


Cunning Mastery Tree


Cunning Mastery Tree is the successor of the utility mastery tree from previous seasons. However, in the current season, Cunning Mastery Tree works as an alternative offensive mastery tree. It grants supplementary effects, such as increased buff duration or bonus movement speed after dealing a burst of damage. On the other hand, the Resolve Mastery Tree replaces the defensive mastery tree of previous seasons and it better suits champions that build defensive items. If you play as a marksman, you might choose Cunning over Resolve as it gives more immediate benefits.

Tier 1

On Tier 1, the Cunning masteries between you can make your choice are Wanderer and Savagery. While Wanderer increases your Movement Speed out of combat with a percentage of +0.6%, Savagery offers 1 bonus damage to minions and monsters for single target attacks and spells. For most proactive players, Wanderer would be the best choice, but it is very important to mention that it only works when you are out of combat and it isn’t very useful until your creep score is perfect.

Tier 2

On Tier 2, there are Runic Affinity, Secret Stash and Assassin. Runic Affinity makes buffs from neutral monsters last 15% longer. Secret Stash makes potions and elixirs last 10% longer, also Health Potions are replaced with Biscuits that restore 15 Health and Mana instantly on use. Last but not least, choosing Assassin makes you deal 2% increased damage to champions when no allied champions are nearby. Assassin is not necessarily the best choice for marksmen as usually they are not alone.

LoL Masteries 6 season

Next tier consists of Merciless which deals 1% increased damage to champions below 40% Health and Meditation that regenerates 0.3% of your missing Mana every 5 seconds.

On the following Tier, you can add 1 point in either Bandit to gain 1 gold for each nearby minion killed by an ally, either Dangerous Game which offers a restore of 5% of your missing Health and Mana for every champion kill and assist. The gold from Bandit is considered slow and useful only for supports.

Precision and Intelligence are the masteries on the 5th Tier. Precision offers Magic Penetration and Armor Penetration, while adding the points to Intelligence, your Cooldown Reduction cap is increased to 41% and you gain 1% Cooldown Reduction.

League of Legends

After investing a maximum of 17 points in Cunning, the last point can be added to one of the following: Stormraider’s Surge, Thunderlord’s Decree or Windspeaker’s Blessing. Stormraider’s Surge grants you 40% Movement Speed and 75% Slow Resistance for 3 seconds with 10 seconds cooldown if you deal 30% of a champion’s max Health within 2.5 seconds. When it comes to Thunderlord’s Decree, your 3rd attack or damaging spell against the same enemy champion calls down a lightning strike, dealing magic damage in the area. The last one, Windspeaker’s Blessing, makes your heals and shields 10% stronger. Additionally, your shields and heals on other allies increase their armor by 5-22 (based on level) and their magic resistance by half that amount for 3 seconds.

Masteries: Ferocity

How to build masteries – beginner’s guide

Mastery season 6

Let’s start by clarifying what the masteries are and why it is important that you use the correct ones in your matches. Firstly, pay attention to the season! Every new season has got new masteries. The current League of Legend Season is 6, so this guide is made according to the actual version.

As a summoner, you can focus your magical training into three specific categories which are widely known are masteries. When you gain levels of power, you have the possibility to choose where to invest them. The three categories you can develop are: Ferocity (grants clean-cut offensive boost), Cunning (grants supplementary effects, such as increased buff duration or bonus movement speed after dealing a burst of damage) and Resolve (increases defense). Each of them has a maximum number of points you can allocate. From the total number of 30 points, you can spend up to 18 points in any of these categories.

League of Legends

How to allocate the points? It depends very much on the champion you’re playing and its role. Read very carefully what every mastery offers you and choose the one that suits you best. Don’t forget! You can build up to 20 pages of masteries and select the proper one before every match. A category has around 13-14 masteries placed in rows. On each row you can invest either a maximum of 5 points, either a maximum of 1 point. The rows are unlocked only by allocating the points in the rows above.



On the first row, Ferocity is made up by masteries like: Fury – it offers you Attack Speed and it’s the best choice for Marksmen. The next one, Sorcery, gives you increased Damage from Abilities. After investing a maximum of 5 points in each of them (of both), the next row is unlocked.

From the next row, you can only choose one mastery between Double Edge Sword (deals an additional 3% damage, but receive an additional 1,5% damage), Feast (killing a unit restores 20 Health) and Expose Weakness (damaging enemy champions causes them to take 3% increase damage from you allies).

The next two are Vampirism and Natural Talent. Vampirism increases Life Steal and Spell Vamp, while Natural Talent offers increased Attack Damage and Ability Power. In late game, Vampirism offers more survivability, so it might be a better choice for marksmen.

League of Legends

On the following row, you can choose either Bounty Hunter – you deal 1% increased damage for each unique enemy champion you kill, either Oppressor – you deal 2.5% increased damage to targets with impaired movement (slows, stuns, taunts, etc.). For a champion like Ashe, Oppressor would be more useful during early to mid-game, but its uses are still limited.

After investing 1 point in one of the above, the next masteries are Battering Blows which offers Armor Penetration and Piercing Thoughts which offers Magic Penetration.

Last but not least, one single point can be added to either Warlord’s Bloodlust – gain increasingly more Lifesteal based on your missing health against champions (up to 20%). This lifesteal is 50% as effective against minions (25% for ranged champions), either Fervor of Battle – you generate stacks of Fervor by hitting enemy champions with attacks and abilities, or Deathfire Touch – your damaging abilities cause enemy champions to take magic damage equal to 8 + 60% of your Bonus Attack Damage and 25% of your Ability Power over 4 seconds.

Everything you want to know about Gold

Basics about gold earning

How to make Money in LoL

Gold can be earned in several ways. The core is lasthitting enemy minions and monsters in the woods. Solid reward given to you if you kill the enemy hero, in addition you will receive smaller bonus if you helped to score a kill. Some characters have the ability to increase income. There are talents, runes, summoner spells and items that generate a small amount if gold. Finally, each character gets one coin per second. As an emergency measure can be recommended to sell unnecessary items to replace it with more appropriate.

Gold from minions

LoL Gold

To receive an reward for a minion, it is necessary to finish him. The number of attacks does not matter, because the money is given only to the one who struck the last blow. The amount of gold depends on the type of minion (ranged minions minions are worth less than melee, and those worth less than siege minion), and the length of the match. The longer the game, the greater the reward for minions.

Gold from monsters

If a monster live long enough then reward for his head grows to a certain threshold. In addition, the most powerful monsters give gold to the whole team at once, regardless of who struck the decisive blow.

Gold from heroes

The reward for killing the hero depends on how many murders he had committed since the last death. The more a series of murders, the more reward for his head. If he, on the contrary, was killed too often, then award will be reduced. Deal a finishing blow to the enemy and you will get full reward.

Gold with skills

These skills have a direct impact on the style of play . Example – Gangplank, bringing additional income, if he kill someone. Passive skill of Katarina increases her reward for the killing and assistance to 25 coins.

Passive income

This category include all income that not derived from taking action. Each character gets the coin in the second after the first minions will appear. Such income can be provided by runes, talents, or specific objects such as Philosopher’s Stone.


League of Legends

Items are resold for 70% of the purchase price, and items, that passively increasing income – 50% of the purchase price. This is not always effective, but sometimes it is justified.

League of Legends

League of Legends Review

In spite of its numerous gameplay and customization variables, League of Legends is a shockingly available MOBA that brags an expectation of gathering detail that is less hard than other legitimate MOBAs. Dota 2, one of its key rivals, has many moving parts, for instance, connections with Creeps and crazy results for kicking the bucket. The prohibition of these mechanics gives League of Legends a chance to thrive as a top-level MOBA, without distorting the experience.

League of Legends clash

Here’s the means by which it works: League of Legends takes the typical five versus five, two group, a three-path methodology of your ordinary MOBA, and includes a back and forth movement that makes offense and barrier tradable. Matches happen on the Summoner’s Rift map, with every group’s base situated on either side. Between the three paths lies a wilderness that has the animals you kill for additional buffs. Thankfully, League of Legends admirably gives you a chance to slaughter the beasties on the adversary’s side of the field. This prevents the resistance from taking control and also provides you an opportunity to guarantee those buffs, too.

In the interim, followers explore every part of the paths from every base of the group to assault the other safeguard of another group. They can be butchered for gold and experience, which gives you a chance to step up a capacity’s capability. Each group features three turrets for each path that endeavor to crush contradicting followers and Champions, however, those mighty towers leave a few Inhibitors—the structures that square your significant Nexus—powerless. This is a key gameplay component, as the amusement closes when your Nexus is destroyed. You have to assault and safeguard astutely.

Once an Inhibitor’s devastated, hazardous Super Minions rise out of the Nexus to dispense enormous harm on the adversary group. Coordinates typically last from 35 to 45 minutes, and the most recent couple of minutes more often than not end in the confused group versus group fights amongst the worn out bases and toppled protections. Nonetheless, Inhibitors regenerate if the match isn’t wrapped up rapidly enough.

We are the champs

Achievement is the aftereffect of turning out to be personally acquainted with your Champions. For instance, the as often as possible banned Mundo is perfect for top-path play as a result of his high Hit Point recovery, capacity jabs that make it simple to assault carefully, and Escape Utility. Sadly, overwhelmed Champions aren’t unprecedented, which requires Riot Games to dole out a constant flow of nerfs to convey them down to a notwithstanding playing field. This is an issue that prompts lots of disappointment in the League of Legends people group.

League of Legends champs

Different Champions are best used to make others sparkle. For instance, Blitzcrank, my undisputed top choice, is best utilized as a part of a bolster part for his long-extend hook capacity that reels in adversaries.

Champions likewise have their particular extraordinary detached positions other than the ones they have dynamic amid battle. Annie, the Dark Child, has an idle role that incidentally paralyzes rivals after she throws four back to back spells. Class of Legends has more than 100 Champions to purchase or open, so there’s a considerable measure to investigate as far as uninvolved and dynamic capacity variety. I’ll examine purchasing Champions in a bit.

Most capacities measure a negligible amount of Magic Points to cast and are adjusted by generally short cooldown periods. As a result of this, the battle is quick, and adversaries can be violently harassed with one spell after another. Then again, the tables can be turned in a moment with appropriate arranging. Skillshots

Add to the officially mad battle. Pointing merely perfectly fine attacker, and executing auspicious evades as the guard, is the center of League of Legend’s fun attempt at manslaughter gameplay.

Gold Farming, Item Building, and Customization

The gold you cultivate from murdering followers is utilized to purchase gear that supports base details, for example, Movement Speed, Attack Power, and Magic Points. Cronies are anything but difficult to murder, however, luckily, you don’t lose any gold if you happen to nibble it while doing combating them. This, alongside League of Legend’s “suggested” thing list makes thing building to a lesser degree a bother than the procedure is in an amusement like Smite. The “denying methodology,” a playstyle connected with Dota 2 in which you murder a crony or tower all alone group to keep the adversary from winning gold, is a non-element in League of Legends. This keeps your emphasis on restricting enemy Champions and keeps crony cooperations from getting to be repetitive.

League of Legends assassin

You acquire Experience Points after each match—regardless of the possibility that you lose. Each level-up opens a Mastery Point that improves Offense, Defense, or Utility abilities. All things considered, their augmentations are not observable in easygoing play.

Impact Points open other Champions, corrective skins, or Runes. Up to 30 Runes can be utilized per Rune Page, and they can be supplanted by all the more intense Runes as you level up. Lamentably, similar to Masteries, the detail expands Runes give have almost no remarkable preferred standpoint amid matches the way gear does, and it’s one of the weaker components of Champion customization.

You can likewise buy Riot Points with actual money to purchase Champions, Skins, and Runes if you do not have the tolerance to open them. Champions cost anywhere in the range of $2 to $8, and with ten default Champions inconsistent revolution to play like every week, you’ll see one that suits your play style. Thankfully, this is discretionary; it isn’t important to purchase Champions with a specific end goal to have an edge in matches.

Positioned Matches and Other Modes

Maximizing your Summoner level to 30, and opening/buying 16 Champions (the most extreme sum), is the point at which the genuine rivalry starts. After contending in countless matches and meeting the requirements, positioned solo and couple games get to be accessible. In these modes, League Points are at stake on the off chance that you win or lose.

League of Legends melee

Association Points are utilized to rank players in levels from Bronze to Challenger, with each more elevated amount level holding more handy colleagues and soldiers. Botches turn out to be all the more excessive as you climb the step. The most adroit gamers set your squad on a descending winding in a while, changing League from an easygoing diversion to a legitimate eSport. This is the spot where Runes and Masteries turn out to be extremely crucial, as their additional information rewards have a bigger impact.

The Summoner’s Rift features some modes to dally with when you require a break from the center gameplay. The Howling Abyss, Crystal Scar as well as the Twisted Treeline maps are every fun battle zones. Precious stone Scar is a little five versus five paths depict concentrates on catching focuses. On the other hand, Howling Abyss places irregular Champions on a solitary path delineate plays like the last five minutes of a Summoner’s Rift match. Turned Treeline has a comparable way to deal with Summoner’s Rift, yet constrains groups to 3 versus 3. These games ordinarily play out in altogether less time than the typical 35-to 45-moment Summoner’s Rift coordinates and are extraordinary for a fast impromptu game on the off chance that you don’t have an hour to kill.

Illustrations and Specs

Association of Legends’ striking hues and awkward, beautiful art make the character models and environment pop. A few Champions depend on legendary animals and figures of authentic mythologies; others are eccentric, tongue-and-cheek characters. There’s a considerable measure of visual appeal. Class of Legends’ low-affect illustrations can be played on any advanced set-up, and moves at a 60-outlines per-second clasp. You can change situations, character models, and enhancements, as well.

The online customer is somewhat old, be that as it may. It can take a while to discover individuals to play with and to begin a match. All things considered, League of Legends once in a while experiences any internet gameplay hiccups.

A True Legend

A group of Legends’ openness is one of its sparkling focuses. However, that does not mean it needs sophisticated center gameplay components. The way skill shots, cool downs, exceptional capacities, and gear work couple makes League of Legends the substance of MOBA gaming, clobbering any semblance of Dota 2 and Heroes of the Storm. Once you’ve gotten used to those consistent contradicting movements, gameplay gets to be fulfilling, aggressive, addicting, and amazingly liquid.


Class of Legends is a fabulous diversion with something for players of all aptitude reaches to appreciate. Despite the fact that it’s ideal to play with companions, you are not left to your particular gadgets if you tend to mind your own business. The early hours can disappoint as you take in the ropes, however, once you are cleared away by the recurring pattern, it’s hard to oppose the steady excite of the amusement’s various fights. When League of Legends has its snares in you, don’t be stunned to discover you’ve spent a couple of hundred hours looking for advanced popularity in one of video gaming’s finest battlegrounds.

League of Legends

However, even however you play on the same few maps with comparable things, there’s so much profundity and procedure going on that no two matches of League of Legends ever feel the same. Its unmistakable style energizes shock assaults and regular utilization of expertise shot forces, and its bright craftsmanship style makes everything pop on the screen. Figure out how to take advantage of its characters and to end up a resource for a group is a long and testing process, yet once you have it down, it’s fantastically fulfilling to cooperate to crush your foes in this astounding MOBA.
