The one mastery we are adding specifically gold related in Utility is a mastery called "Pickpocket" that grants gold upon attacking 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.
I foresee many bananas in the future. Many many many bananas.

I don't even play support because of its passive nature and lack of gold. This pickpocket idea/change really makes me want to actually consider support and not be upset about it. Good job Riot.

Pickpocket is more generous to melee support?

I don't think Blitzcrank has more risk related to him being melee.

I liked more the idea of the Synergy mastery, I was hoping that when we play supports we could buy items and do something more late game, making the support role more fun. I understand that the Synergy mastery would force all supports to spec into the support tree, but the Pickpocket mastery feels like it discriminates some supports and favors others and I dont see it beeing balanced equally to everyone (the risk of getting killed on some supports is lower compared to other supports)
I think it also makes you lose even more if you are already behind. Also if you are against a burst lane and you are playing with soraka, it might not be the best idea to go aggressive.
Alistar can also abuse this with W> auto atack in mid air > enemy champion goes flying > you retreat.
Also if the other champions can take this mastery, some champions will get the same quantity of gold the supports are earning, so we will be at the same gold distance again, defeating the porpouse?
Upgrading from a toaster to windows 2000, while everyone is using windows 7, doesnt make anyone want to be that toaster guy.

This is just my opinion, I just want the support role to be more fun, cya. (im from euw, sorry for the random smurf)

Do you plan on tweaking the flash cooldown depending on if u use it aggressively (as gap closer, getting closer to enemies) or defensively with benefits to aggressive use?
