The Masters are the apex duelers of TIN, standing above even the knights. All masters have climbed the ranks from the very bottom to the top, proving their dueling and theoretical skill many times over. They are the best players in the clan and the best teachers to choose from.
There are no theory requirements for masters.
There are no additional systematic tests for masters.
To become a master, you must fulfill two major criteria.
- Win a clan-only dueling tournament organized by the council. (Keep in mind that not all tournaments count toward the rank.)
- Train and mentor an apprentice of your own to pass the knight trials. These students may not be picked from already capable duelists, and must be in big part mentored by you. What qualifies as a proper mentoring is at discretion of the council.
