Introduction

The goal of the PvME Mastery System is to allow players to set goals and track progress towards mastering specific boss encounters. Roles that are granted are kept permanently, no matter the meta that they were achieved under.

Mastery Roles Explained

The PvME mastery system is formed around five distinct ranks. Each rank is meant to be representative of a particular 'snapshot' in a player's journey.

Initiate

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Making the transition from a learner to the start of mastery; the primary goal would be to keep building familiarity with the encounter so as to continue climbing through the ranks.

Adept

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Once fully familiar with a boss at surface level, starts taking larger steps to understand its nuances and explores methods of optimization.

Expert

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Attempts more efficient tactics with varying degrees of success; establishing the foundations to become a master.

Master

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Displays an extensive understanding of the encounter; utilising efficient tactics with a high degree of proficiency in the relevant style(s).

Grandmaster

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• A true expert achieving peak performance; the most rapid, precise, and difficult tactics are leveraged with near-perfect execution with a focus on high consistency. Grandmasters can take advantage of any form of good luck they encounter to push for a faster time. A player at this skill level would be content to achieve these timers once per hour (applies more literally in some places than others).

Submitting for a Role

A submission should be provided as follows, with your in-game name visible:

Initiate / Adept / Expert

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Screenshots or videos are both accepted unless otherwise stated.

Master / Grandmaster

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Only videos are accepted unless otherwise stated.

Please post your submissions in #unknown-channel so that they can be reviewed by staff and/or role reviewers. Submissions will be evaluated according to our rules, as follows,

Mastery System Rules
⬥ All roles requiring multiple kills will use average times. ⬥ Any timer denoted with ≤ ("sub"), e.g. "≤ 1:00", signifies that anything up until and including that time will be accepted. ⬥ Decimals are ignored entirely for all timers, including averages.     • E.g. 1:00.6 and 1:01.8 would be considered 1:00 and 1:01 = 1:00 average. ⬥ All rules used by the PvM Records community apply     • Full list is available here.     • Any new bugs/exploits added to the list that are used prior to being disallowed may result in submission denial ⬥ Power creep may place submissions on hold.

Special Roles

In addition to all of the listed mastery objectives, we provide special roles for those who go above and beyond in mastering multiple different encounters.
