Brawling Mastery
31,735 views | 18 Comments | Brawling / Traits / Weapons

Brawling  is a slow, brutal style using fists to inflict maximum damage.. Weapon Mastery, introduced in Game Update 36, allows player to perform cross-weapon combos.

Brawling can combo into select Two Handed and Martial Arts attacks.

To unlock Brawling Mastery, players must spend 20 skill points in Brawling tree. Depending on their needs, they should spend skill points on required Statistics for their Power role. Furthermore, they must unlock the next Brawling Combos:

  • Back Fist
  • Haymaker
  • Stomp Smash

Brawling can be accessed as a Cross-Weapon from the following weapons:

  • Dual Wield
    • Ground Pound Mastery
    • Launching Uppercut Mastery
  • Hand Blaster
    • Ground Pound Mastery
    • Haymaker Mastery

Purchasing Brawling Mastery causes required attacks combos to hit for increased damage. It will also increase critical strike damage and resistance to control effects while using Brawling.

Weapon Mastery Tips

Unlocking as much weapon mastery as you can will grant you access to the Weapon Mastery Points which require you to spend 21 skill points in that weapon tree.

We suggest you to focus on your Main Weapon tree (Brawling) and both Cross-Weapons’s tree (Two Handed & Martial arts).

Cross-Weapon Combos

Using a super power at the moment Cross-Weapon Combos impact will increase the super power’s chance to crit by 360% and its critical damage significantly.

On healer, tank, and control role, using a super power at the moment Cross-Weapon Combos impact will decrease the super power’s Power cost.

  1. Hi, I just want to say thank you for this great guide, I wish I read it before starting playing the game.
    I do have one tiny question though,
    My first weapon is brawling. It opens Martial Arts and Two-Handed.
    I have already finished Brawling and MA, now I want to open Hand-Blaster, because TH is just awful.
    How bad would it be? It is a MUST to open all 3 weapons of the mastery tree THEN move on to other weapons ?

      It is recommended to unlock your cross weapon masteries first. However, if you wont use TH Combos then you wont have any problem skipping TH
