Hey guys Delyndia here, and I want to talk about the new masteries coming with the new Living World episode Whisper in the Dark.
I like having masteries to do that will give me a benefit in open world, sense mounts have been added we haven’t had many I think essence manipulation will be a good change from just trying to get your mount’s masteries done so you can get over a canyon.
I like the Rock, Paper, Scissors mechanic, it means you can’t just have one Essence maxed out and kick everything’s ass. You will need to use different Essences for what your fighting, such as, if you want to defeat a mob with valor you can’t just be all maxed out in vigilance you need to put some training in resilience as well.
How to tell the mobs Essence :
Svanir embody the essence of Vigilance.
Fallen embody the essence of Resilience.
Aberrant embody the essence of Valor.
How do we unlock Essence Manipulation? :
You’ll need to unlock the second tier of the Raven Attunement Mastery track then choose an essence to start with and train it by gaining experience and mastery points.
If you want to learn more, Anet did a livestream Friday, November 15. You can view it below.
Whisper in the Dark is due to release November 19, 2019, so make sure to check it out.

Character build and gear templates are going to be added to the game so you can change builds and equipment loadouts easily.
