Yesterday, Konami released a brand new trailer showing off the mastery system in Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2. The mastery system builds blood levels after use of the iconic blood whip, the healing Void Sword and the shield breaking gauntlets. After playing the game for a short period, honestly, it was hard to tell what the mastery system does in the game. After watching the trailer, and some discussion with other players, as the mastery level increases so does the power level of attacks.
Increasing the mastery of a weapon is as simple as using skills and using the weapon on enemies. After using attacks to their full experience level players will receive a mastery point. Using the mastery point will increase the damage done by that specific weapon. Every weapon can have a mastery of at most level 3. Using new skills directly after unlocking them seems to be the best way to build up mastery quickly.
