So the wiki says I won't get any mastery points from leveling up a forma'ed weapon or frame but just yesterday I forma'ed my Rhino and levelled him to 10. i have 1.7k points before I can qualify for rank 5, I'm not familiar with the point distribution but my loadouts while leveling Rhino only levelled once for my primary, and once for my secondary. I don't suppose that 2 levels will contribute 1.7k mastery points right? So does leveling a forma'ed equipment give mastery points now? Thanks!
At that time I brought along a maxed out Death Cube and DC Rifle. If I did get exp from a forma'ed equipment I guess its good news. Really sucked how you'll have to re-level after forma without any upside to it aside from the polarity slot.
You can't gain more mastery points from a weapon/warframe if it's been forma'd, no. However, if you buy/build weapons that you know you'll never use, you can level those and gain the mastery points from them and then sell the weapons when they hit 30.

Why did you necro a post from three years ago that was already necro'd two years ago? Let the dead horse stay burried. Old Wilbur just wants to rest in peace! D:
You cannot and never have been able to get any MR from formaed gear. This was true in 2013 when this thread started and it is true now. Changing it would defeat the whole purpose of the mastery system as we would have MR7,000 players running around with MK1 gear.
For those who can't read too well "Take note that each individual equipment will only grant its mastery points once per rank per variant — Polarization, selling a Rank 30 equipment and then purchasing & reusing it will NOT grant mastery points again, including in the event that a copy of an already max-ranked equipment is obtained and used. If an equipment below max rank is sold, then purchased and reused, only the ranks previously not gained will grant mastery points."
Hey i found this interesting an I started thinking too, should or do certain polarities on weapons increase the focus generated by said weapon/warframe? Like say i have 4 Madurai polarities on a weapon would that weapon earn more when gaining focus for the madurai treetree than one without polarities?
Also an good way to go about earning extra mastery from formaing weapons would be to gain 250-500 extra mastery points for leveling up (This would only apply to the first forma to reduce grind and balance) 500 points is an absurd amount on its own but it COULD work? Anyway the point of extra mastery from weapons after maxing them out the first time is to make players go back and take notice of a weapon that has potential that may require forma. It can change the meta too and might start seeing certain weaponz used more often than whats mainstream rn..
