    Title: Lunar Magic Specialization / Mastery does nothing
    Reproduction Rate: 5/5
    Blocker? no
    Details:
    Lunar Magic Specialization increases attunement, but does not add mastery effects to any moon magic skill.

    Specifically, I observed the following on an offline character: No regen bonus on Vanish, no dexterity bonus on Fireflies, no move speed buff on Shadow Form, no increased heal on Cocoon of Night, no cool down reduction on Meteor Shower or Shooting Star, no radius increase on Moon Beams, no mesmerize on Night Step.

    Partially (Night Step only) reported before at https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...c-night-steps-of-the-moon-do-not-work.164613/

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Precondition: Player character with all moon magic skills and a suitably high Lunar Magic Specialization level.

    1. Cast Meteor Shower
    2. Time the cool down period
    3. Compare cool down period to base 30 seconds
    Expected: Less than 30 seconds
    Actual: 30 seconds

    1. Cast Shooting Star
    2. Time the cool down period
    3. Compare cool down period to base 15 seconds
    Expected: Less than 15 seconds
    Actual: 15 seconds

    1. Cast Tap Soul to damage self while not in combat
    2. Observe and note non-combat regeneration rate
    3. Cast Tap Soul to damage self while not in combat
    4. Cast Vanish
    5. Observe and compare non-combat regeneration rate
    Expected: Non-combat regeneration rate increases under Vanish
    Actual: Non-combat regeneration rate stays the same under Vanish

    Similar scripts can be written for each other moon magic skill.

    Figured it out.

    Specialization needs to be set to "Training" or "Maintaining" for Mastery to work.

    Probably working as intended.

    Sorry about that!
