So there's an item that affects champions' pets and traps? Could you expound a bit?

Any really neat masteries that potentially act as a mini Lich Bane for mages?

Good point! Currently we have different gold amounts for Ranged and Melee champions, and we'll continue to adjust these values as needed. We want to reward melee champions for the additional risk they take in any engagement from this mastery

Singed should like the new Utility Tree
Welp after all the Yorick nerfs I guess it's time to stop playing Yorick.

Pickpocket actually sounds really interesting. Sona with her super poking will definitely enjoy that mastery.

What does striking entail? Auto attacks, or any Offensive abilities? Only abilities that do damage?

i hope there will be a long internal cooldown on the pickpocket mastery (in the range of 10 to 15 seconds), or ranged carries and anyone who builds attack speed or has attack speed boosts in his kit would have a crazy advantage over other champs.

same for sustained damage casters like cass or ryze who can spam their abilities nonstop.

Tristana. That Range + that Attack Speed Boost.
