That sounds amazing. I love playing an active role even when I am Soraka, so I'm glad to hear there will be tangible rewards for doing so.

The one mastery we are adding specifically gold related in Utility is a mastery called "Pickpocket" that grants gold upon striking an enemy champion. This will allow active supports a bit more gold while harassing their opponents, while also being useful for other character types that spec into deep into Utility.
This actually sounds interesting...
A few questions?

1. What's the max amount of gold you can receive per hit (for Ranged+Melee)?
2. Related: Is the amount gained always flat, no matter the attack or skill, or dependent on certain factors (ie. Range, damage dealt, AA vs. Ability, ect.)
3. Does Lulu get gold off of Pix's magic blasts with her AA? (Never mind, the below response answered this)

Thanks!

There is a cooldown before the effect can triggered again.

Already excited for season 3 as support, but pick pocket set me over the edge. I want all the changes now :/

How does Pickpocket interact with Tiamat? with multiple tiamats? With Shyvana Dragon form? With shyvana dragon form with tiamat? etc.

Will Barrier make you immune to CC like with Morgana's shield or will it just mitigate some of the damage?

By the way, what will this new mastery have to be undesirable for solo laners? Because while intended for supports, solo laners might just pick it up anyway? Unless that's fully intended anyway.

Because it may go back to the GP10 problem where it's fine for supports but a bit silly when stacked on a solo laner.
