There are 35 ranks that characters must climb to reach their full potential. When a character is promoted to a new rank, their Mastery level is increased. Once you pick a character, as you progress further in the game with them, their level increases and specific rewards are unlocked with each level of mastery.

As you play in the Kombat League, you will be faced against different characters based on your strategy and performance, and you may level up in rank accordingly. Fighting more formidable enemies will bump up your XP and increase your rank. 

Mastery Rewards

Mastery rewards are character-specific rewards you will earn as you play them to rank up their Mastery. The rewards come in builds, fatalities, gears, brutality, taunts, and more. Gaining mastery for certain players provides great battle strength and an advantage to conquer various difficulty levels.

Once you pick a character, stick by it and perform various missions with them to increase their mastery level. The mastery rewards for all characters are essentially the same but vary in their abilities to perform. 

The following are some of the best ways to increase the level of a certain character.

Test Your Might is an event in invasion mode of Mortal Kombat 1 that can help you rank up your character by increasing their XP. All you have to do is trigger the button of the given device and break the skull provided into two halves. To do so, follow these instructions:

  • While in Invasion Mode, choose any of the maps.
  • If you choose Fire Temple, you must search for a key to access the Test Your Might challenge. 
  • You can choose any characters to fight with when you enter the mode.
  • After choosing a particular character, complete the task by triggering the prompt button to gain XP.
  • Repeat until you get your invasion character to level 30 for maximum points. 
  • You can equip a relic with a 15% increased XP if you have a relic.

The primary way to increase XP is to fight a lot; to do that, you need to engage in several battles. Flawless wins boost XP. Some of the following techniques can be useful to rank up faster through battles:

  • Repeat events that can increase your account levels, like a triple threat or squad-up events.
  • Online matches provide higher XP, which helps in leveling up fast.
  • Flawless victories are the best way to earn XP, especially during the earlier fights.
  • Boast about the attack of the character before starting a fight.
