The Skill Mastery book allows one of your Companions to upgrade one of their class skills. After using the Skill Mastery book, the chosen class skill will be upgraded. For instance, here is what the Hunter (Recoil Shot) skill will change if chosen:

  • Original: Targets an enemy within 8 meters. Deals medium damage, knocks them back 2 meters, and applies Slowdown for 1 round.
  • After Skill Mastery Book: Skill damage boosted slightly, knockback goes from 2 meters to 3 meters, and Slowdown now lasts 2 rounds instead of 1.

With the latest update, you must be level 4 on the red path before obtaining them. Once you have reached this level and path, you can then find a Skill Mastery book in the following locations:

  • Smot’s Arena
  • Training Camps
  • Vertusian Province: You will find a Skill Mastery book in a secret chest at the very north part of this location.
  • Champion of Vertusian Province: You will find a Skill Mastery book in a secret chest near this location.

It isn’t possible to upgrade 100% of the class skills in the game, but there is a ton you can, which means you will have a lot of flexibility when upgrading your Companions to your specific playstyle.
