Scythe Mastery

Jump to: navigation, search

Scythe Mastery is a dervish secondary attribute.

Scythe Mastery increases the damage you do with scythes and your chance to inflict a critical hit when using a scythe. Many skills, especially scythe attack skills, become more effective with higher Scythe Mastery.

— In-game description

Inherent effect[edit]

Each rank of Scythe Mastery gives you a higher chance of a critical hit and increases the base damage of the weapon.

For information on the damage dealt with increasing ranks, see Damage rating.

Notes[edit]

  • Unlike other comparable attributes, such as Swordsmanship, not all of the attack skills in Scythe Mastery actually require a scythe; some are simply melee attacks.
