MPS Item: Heart of Gold (Removed)

Heart_of_Gold

Sad news that Heart of Gold is being removed from the game, as a support I will be missing those extra health and gold generated from Heart of Gold.

In exchange, Riot add new mastery called pickpocket where it give gold for every hit to enemy champion (5g for melee and 3g for range attack).

While it sounds good, it need 16 mastery points in Support Tree to unlock it. Also to be as effective as Heart of Gold, every minute you need to attack enemy champion at least 10 times (for ranged support). I will not mention melee support for this mastery, since it will create a big risk to be in the firing line just for an extra 5g and when it come to late game, most of the time support will roam or stay in safe place prior to team fight.

*Heart of Gold = 5g per 10 second, 30g per minute*

In my opinion, pickpocket is a good passive to help support generate extra gold. But, I hold my reservation toward putting (at least) 17 points to Support Mastery Tree

Pre-Season 3 Patch Notes

For those who looking for Patch Notes 3.0.1, click here.

By now most of you should have read Riotgames Season 3 Patch Notes or the Season 3 intro page.

There are a lot of changes to items, jungles, masteries and summoner spells where summoner spells received the least addition or removal.

So the next thing to concentrate are masteries and items since both of them receive a lot of additional option.

Also I heard that the armor and magic penetration will be changed (forgot if it’s already confirm or not, it could be mention in the pre-season video) where % penetration will come into affect first then the flat penetration. Because of that, there have been a lot of discussion that AD bruiser and carry become stronger on season 3. Some even said that a full AD team is viable.

This update have not been finalized by Riot, so until the start of season 3 there could be a lot of tweak in the change stats.
