One Handed Mastery
25,235 views | 13 Comments | One Handed / Traits / Weapons

One Handed is a fast melee style using a combat weapon held in one hand. Weapon Mastery, introduced in Game Update 36, allows player to perform cross-weapon combos.

One Handed can combo into select Dual Wield and Hand Blaster attacks.

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

  • Air Lunch
  • Spin Chop
  • Flip Slash
  • Focused Blast

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

  • Rifle
    • Flurry Mastery
    • Air Launch Mastery
  • Staff
    • Cleave Mastery
    • Air Launch Mastery

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

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 (One Handed) and both Cross-Weapons’s tree (Dual Wield & Hand Blaster).

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.

      One Handed can be accessed as Cross Weapon if you choose Rifle and Staff as your main weapon. If you choose One Handed as main weapon you can access Dual Wield and Hand Blaster as cross weapons
