Players must be Commander level 18 or higher to interact with masteries. Once you reach level 18, you will gain one mastery point per level. The maximum amount of points you can earn by leveling up is 33 at level 50.
Mastery Point Recovery
You can recover your points and rebuild your mastery tree as many times as you like. There is no cost to reset your masteries. However, this action will not refund the Gold or Energon you have spent leveling up each skill in the past. Cores are not lost when you recover your mastery points, and any unlocked nodes will remain so after recovering.
This means that any cores that were purchased to unlock mastery nodes will not need to be purchased again, but you will need to spend the Gold or Energon to rank each mastery up.
Why Are There Some Masteries I Cannot Unlock?
It is not possible to have every mastery active simultaneously, as there are not enough mastery points for that. This means you will have to choose where you put your points based on your style of play or what works best for your bots and squads. The reset option lets you try again if you do not like the mastery selections you have made, or to try something new if you are bored with your current setup.
