How long do you want a mastery to take? It really seems like people want to be able to take a character from 0 xp to elite status in one sitting.
It’s supposed to indicate that you’ve played a character for a long time and have now mastered all of that character’s abilities. You can easily debate that some mastery goals don’t encourage you to play the character the proper way, but that’s an entire conversation on it’s own.
We have 15 Hunters. I’d be fine calling someone a master trapper if they played 2 hours a night every night for 2 weeks. So for me, I’m going with around 28 hours from start to elite. People mastering characters entirely through solo grinding (hey oh!) seems pointless. I’ve finished a mastery or two in solo defend, but it was in situations where I felt it was harmful to the team if I tried to get it in online play.
So, what do you think? What does elite status mean to you?
