Masterwork is a fully upgraded piece of equipment. It is marked with a golden pattern on its border.

Upgrade

Weapons and armor can be upgraded with Glimmer, Legendary Shards, Enhancement Cores, Enhancement Prisms and Ascendant Shards. Only Rare or better armor can be upgraded. Only Legendary weapons can be upgraded. Exotic weapons can be Masterworked with Catalysts.

Upgrading weapons gives them a small bonus to a random stat. Year 1 weapons with fixed rolls can be reworked to relocate bonus points to another random stat. Masterworked weapons generate Orbs of Light on multikills. These Orbs are dropped from defeated enemies. At tier 6 the weapon receives a tracker perk. The player can choose between tracking Guardian kills, enemy kills, or do not track kills with this weapon at all.

Upgrading armor increases its capacity for Mods, each tier adds a segment to the energy bar. Rare armor always drops at tier 5.

The maximum upgrade tier is 10, at which the piece of gear becomes Masterworked. Weapons receive +1 to a specified stat with each upgrade tier, with a total of 10. Masterworked armor pieces gain +2 to all stats, for a total of +12. Exotic weapons gain a special bonus depending on their Catalyst. It might be a simple stat increase, like with Riskrunner, or an additional perk, like with the Ace of Spades.

Other items

Several other items can receive the Masterwork border.

  • Eva's Holiday Oven, a quest item from The Dawning event, becomes Masterworked when the player bakes every cookie at least once. The Masterworked Oven consumes less Essence of Dawning per recipe.
  • Chalice of Opulence, a quest item of the Menagerie, becomes Masterworked when the player buys all of its upgrades. The Masterworked Chalice gains the Perfected upgrade, which makes it so the player gains runes from loot sources which normally grant Imperials.
  • Seasonal Artifacts become Masterworked when the player uses up all 12 Mod unlocks. It does not provide any additional benefit and the item gains a blue border instead of a golden one.
