Weaponmaster Training allows you to equip a weapon from any Elite Specialization of your class without locking yourself to the Elite Specialization trait line. It is one of the new features that were introduced with the Secrets of the Obscure along with the Wizard’s Vault and a bunch of other things.
This means that you can be a Holosmith that carries a Hammer, or a Tempest that carries a Sword. The possibilities are endless. If this sounds interesting to you, keep reading to find out how you can unlock this option.
How to get Weaponmaster Training
To get this Achievement, you have to own The Secrets of the Obscure expansion, then make your way to the first map in Horns of Maguuma by following the story. Once you are in Skywatch Archipelago, do the following steps:
- Get to chapter 3, Mother of Stars
- Head south from Wizard’s Ascent toward the big building
- Enter the Beacon Command Center from the second floor.
- Speak with Frode for some time
This will complete the Weaponmaster Training achievement, and you can now enjoy all the weapons that your class can carry.
Note that unlocking this Achievement doesn’t mean you can use the Elite trait lines of the Specializations. You will still need to own the expansion that this Specialization belongs to before you can unlock it’s traits.
Moreover, completing this achievement will unlock this option to your entire account.
What are my possibilities?
With so many choices to choose from now, here is a list of weapons that every class will be able to carry after completing the Weaponmaster Training achievement.
The Mesmer, Thief, Elementalist, Ranger, and Warrior will also gain some additional stats to accommodate this change, so go ahead and try it for yourself, and I give my regards to all the theory crafters out there.
