General Newb Guide: Selecting Mastery in Odyssey

(_ Prerequisite : Read the General Newb Guide section 7.3 first to understand this guide better._)

This guide for new players aims to demystify the random-number generator (RNG) action in “Mastery Selection” after the completion of the first Odyssey. Some of you may be confused by the “gambling” action of the Mastery RNG. By its very nature, the RNG is a roller-coaster ride—the values generated by the RNG’s “roll of the dice” can go up or down. So, you need to sit at this gambling table with sufficient Gold & Wisdom… and some luck!

Let’s take the case of the first-time Odyssey play. The target Fame points is 100 for acquiring a Mastery. For our first Master,y, let’s seek “Health” stat at “Best” level. 


(1) Stage 1 of 2: REROLLING MASTERY

Upon achieving 100 Fame points, this screen is presented with 2 Mastery choices. As “Health” is not offered, let’s just press “Reroll Masteries” for 621 Wisdom points. 

(1.1) Roll #1: After first roll of the RNG, we get 2 new Mastery offers, but not the one we’re seeking. Let’s roll again, but at an increased cost of 812 Wisdom points. 

(1.2) Roll #2: The 2nd roll of the RNG also has not presented our preferred stat. Let’s roll again. Cost goes up to 1051 Wisdom points. 

(1.3) Roll #3: Well, the 3rd roll tempts us with another valuable stat “Leadership”. But, for the sake of this guide, let’s move on. Cost = 1366 Wisdom points. 

(1.4) Roll #4: Alas, our gamble hasn’t still paid off. But the 4th roll offers a sparkling “better” quality for a useful “Life of Hit”. It’s a good deal, but we must hunt down that elusive Health, even at the cost of a scorching 1776 Wisdom points now. 

(1.5) Roll #5: Finally, the 5th roll yields our target Health stat. Unfortunately, its quality is just “OK”. We can improve this by “rerolling quality”. Let’s try our luck there, shall we? 


 (2) Stage 2 of 2: REROLLING QUALITY

We’ve selected Health as our preferred Mastery. But, out of a maximum of 3.03% increase, we only got 2.56% for this stat. We need more, so let’s just press “Reroll Quality” for 24000 Gold. 

(2.1) Roll #1: Alas, the first roll of the RNG is negative, we slipped to 2.25%. Well, that’s gambling, so let’s move on with 36000 Gold.  

(2.2) Roll #2: The 2nd roll is somewhat better, but still way below our opening number of 2.56%. Here goes 54400 Gold. 

(2.3) Roll #3: Great! Third time is a charm, indeed. We got 2.83% sparkling “better” quality. But, as is the gambler’s wont, let’s go for more. Roll again for 80800 Gold. 

(2.4) Roll #4: Ouch! And as is the gambler’s fate, we’ve fallen down to 2.46%. No more sparkles. The faint of heart may quit the table now, but not us. Throw 121600 Gold at the RNG. 

(2.5) Roll #5: Hmmm… it seems we’ve come full circle, back to 2.56% at the very beginning. Shall we cut our losses or throw good money after bad money? Too late to pull back… let’s go all in or nothing! One last throw for 184000 Gold. 

(2.6) Roll #6: Eureka… Eureka… EUREKA! We did it… “Health” stat at full-glow “best” quality. Can’t get better than this, so let’s collect our gains pack up.

(_ PS : I was motivated to write this guide after encountering posts of some players misunderstanding the concept of RNG venting at the developers. I hope this will put all at rest. Peace! _☺️)

@AriesRising I think you should use igmur or any other image sharing site to upload the images or use compression software to compress the images.It all looks messy.

If you need them I can provide a very cool open source compressing software that can convert any type of images in batches.

 

Also I want to share some other vital info with you that you could not add here.If you need that.

That’s very informative could you Also explain the 5 slots on the left of screen
