Masters are five special NPCs that randomly spawn in Wraeclast and offer the player missions. Each master offers unique mechanics and rewards to reap. In exchange for completing these missions, players can unlock crafting recipes on the Crafting Bench and gain Favour for buying decorations for your hideout.
Masters must be encountered in the wild before they start appearing in various towns in Wraeclast.

Masters can be encountered in most zones, where they will offer a mission. Zana can only be encountered in Maps.
After you complete a map, a map in the Atlas of Worlds will be marked to show a master is located in that map. Opening an instance to that map will guarantee the master to appear there. If the objective of the same master is already on the Atlas when it spawns, it will move to a new place. Objectives can appear on any non-unique map, but will favour completed maps or maps adjacent to completed maps.
Atlas Objectives refresh every day at midnight UTC. The map tiers where Atlas objectives spawn is relative to the last map tier you've run before the reset.
Successfully completing missions for Masters grants you Favour. Favour is used to purchase hideout decorations.
Each master has a Favour level, which goes up to 7. Each Favour level unlocks new decorations to purchase.
Using the crafting bench in your hideout, you can add a master crafted mod into an item. Crafting recipes are unlocked as you play the game and complete missions for masters. Unlocked recipes are retained account-wide.
Adding crafted mods
The crafting bench offers a list of mods that can be crafted onto items of certain types for a cost. Usually, only one crafted mod may be added to an item; the crafted mod is shown in a brighter color than normal mods. Crafting a mod follows the normal affix rules. Specifically:
- The item cannot already have a mod of that type.
- The item must have a prefix or suffix slot open as appropriate. This means that a second prefix or suffix cannot be crafted onto a magic item, nor a fourth prefix or suffix onto a rare item.
Likewise, the existence of a crafted mod on an item prevents a mod of the same type from being added via an Exalted OrbExalted OrbStack Size: 10Enchants a rare item with a new random modifierRight click this item then left click a rare item to apply it. Rare items can have up to six random modifiers.
Shift click to unstack..
Players can unlock crafting recipes to a special mod which doesn't grant stats or bonuses, but affects other mods and may override regular crafting rules. These meta-crafting mods are treated as regular master crafted mods; they take up either a prefix or suffix spot but, like any other crafting mod, only one can be added at a time. This can be bypassed with the Can have multiple Crafted Mods mod.
Using an Orb of ScouringOrb of ScouringStack Size: 30Removes all modifiers from an itemRight click this item then left click on a magic or rare item to apply it.
Shift click to unstack. on an item with the "Prefixes/Suffixes Cannot be Changed" meta-crafting mod will not remove prefixes/suffixes.
Removing crafted mods
Crafted mods may not be directly exchanged. They are removed if the item is randomly rerolled using an Orb of AlterationOrb of AlterationStack Size: 20Reforges a magic item with new random modifiersRight click this item then left click a magic item to apply it.
