Title Style Master
Collect and learn [10 / 25 / 50] full motifs.

True Style Master and its preceding achievements are awarded for learning 10, 25 and 50 complete style motifs. A completed style motif is defined as learning all chapters in a particular style. Generally, a complete motif is split into 14 chapters, all of which must be read in order to receive credit. Some motifs however are not split into chapters, rather they are compiled into a single book that counts as a complete motif.

Locations[edit]

Motifs can be found in numerous ways. Most of them can only be found from specific locations or under certain circumstances but drop rates are typically small. These include:

  • Random loot — including treasure chests, lockboxes and containers
  • Enemy drops — including regular enemies, Delve bosses, World Bosses and Group Dungeon bosses. The final boss of a Group Dungeon killed in Veteran Hard Mode is guaranteed to drop their associated motif chapter.
  • Possible reward from daily or weekly quests
  • Bought from special vendors associated with the Alliance War and Battlegrounds
  • Pickpocketing
  • Fishing
  • Crafting
  • Psijic Portals — crafting motifs associated with the zone the portal was found in (e.g. Sapiarch motif chapters found in Summerset portals)
  • Crown Crates — Offers various DLC-related motif books or chapters, depending on the season.
  • Crown Store — Offers exclusive Crown Store styles, alongside motif books from the base game and selected DLCs.

Guild Stores[edit]

Players can bypass manually searching for most motifs and buy them directly from Guild Stores. While this is popular method can prove to be expensive in the long run, it gives all players the chance to find particularly rare motifs or motifs from DLCs they don't own. Almost all motifs, with the exception of Crown Store exclusives, can be found for sale in Guild Stores.

Achieving 50[edit]

Learning 50 complete motifs can be both expensive and time consuming. There are currently 64 known crafting styles, but this achievement cannot be earned with the base game content alone. DLC-specific motifs account for over half of the known crafting styles, meaning players either require access to the DLC or must buy DLC motifs from Guild Stores.

  • 27 motifs are found in the base game
  • 31 motifs are introduced in DLCs
  • 3 motifs are Crown Store exclusives
  • 3 motifs were only available during holiday events, though the event motifs are usually still available in Guild Stores.

Full List[edit]

While the source of motifs can be checked in Menu > Collections > Armor/Weapon Styles and hovering over the image of the item, the descriptions are sometimes vague or incomplete. Below is a full list of exactly where each motif can be obtained from (not including Guild Stores).
