How to Unlock Masteries

Alright, to kickstart your Mastery journey, dive into Chapter 1: The Western Frontier. There’s this quest waiting for you, named “Explore the Town,” and it pops up once you hit Folca Town. Your mission? Hunt down a bunch of NPCs while you’re chilling in town.

Top of the list? Give a shoutout to Katalina. Find her, have a chat, listen to her wisdom, and voilà – your Main Menu will now be rocking the Masteries section. You’ll spot her hanging around the edges of town, probably giving a dummy a hard time in some training session.

Once you’ve cracked open the Mastery vault in Chapter 1, you’ll be face-to-face with two main categories: Offense and Defense. Now, if you’re itching to unlock a Mastery node, you gotta throw some MSP (Mastery Points) into the mix. Keep an eye on the top right of your screen for your MSP count, and remember, the cost per node likes to shake things up as your character’s mastery levels up. Get those points, spend ’em wisely, and become the master of your domain!

How to Earn Mystery Points

Mastery Points is the currency used to unlock Mastery nodes in Granblue Fantasy Relink. Characters will earn Mastery Points through various ways:

  • Mastery Points are earned as characters level up
  • Can be retrieved from Treasure Chests
  • Normal Story Progression
  • Completing Side Quests from the Quest Counter
