Do I get anything from mastering in a class? Or should I just find a good loadout and get xp by playing more? Is there something like challenges, where if you master a weapon you get like 1000xp?

You should clarify if you mean "should I pay a bunch of XP to immediately master a class", or "should I put effort into mastering a class' equipment". – Tacroy Jul 26 '12 at 21:46

No, there are no extra hidden bonuses or rewards for fully unlocking a class, other than whatever the individual upgrades provide. However, it's a good idea to max out anything that you actually plan on using.

You can earn Badges (like achievements), which provide one-time XP bonuses, but these are awarded through gameplay, not completing upgrades.

I wish they add challenges and one time xp bonuses for mastering weapons. could be a way to get xp faster. – pvinis Jul 27 '12 at 0:51
Getting XP faster without paying for it isn't really in the business model. – Koviko Jul 27 '12 at 1:34
And that is the issue with Free to Pay games, they often become Pay to Win – Gareth Jones Jul 27 '12 at 3:20
@GarethJones: Compared to a lot of other F2P games, Tribes: Ascend is definitely not Pay To Win. – Brant Jul 27 '12 at 4:57
I dont know, cause I havnt played it, however ive seen it in other F2P games – Gareth Jones Jul 28 '12 at 4:58

I find the best thing to master is the armor of a class, since you get far more upgrades for the 15k exp, and they are very useful on lighter classes that have low HP to begin with.
