[Mastery] Greed...

Is it worth it? 1g every 10 seconds seems too spread out to be of any help, especially when you're successfully last-hitting. I've never noticed a difference myself.

In a 30ish+ minute game its gold value makes it very worth it for a single mastery point, yes.

But if you're taking it over a generally better mastery - for example, 3/3 mana regeneration, movement speed or cooldown reduction, or 2/2 neutral buff timers, you're generally better off with them because their effects are obvious all game rather than just later on.

If a game lasts 25 min you get 150 gold. Think of it that way.

If you do the math:

1g per 10 seconds

6g per minute

45 min game = an extra 270g

Not really worth it in my opinion.

1g per 10s
6g per 1m
240g per 40m

If your game goes 40 minutes, you only made an extra 240g.

I've never invested mastery points into Greed because nothing has ever managed to convince me that the mastery is actually useful. The gold income is minimal and hardly significant; you'd be better of focusing your endeavours elsewhere, daughter.

Consider it in relation to other values you can get for your one point - amazing gains such as 2 MR, 3 AP, and 1% attack speed.

By that metric a couple free wards/potions or half a longsword is a pretty good deal.

This thread is now about math apparently.

By itself, it's not worth it, When used with Quints and an item or two that gives you gold per 10 seconds it's worth it.

4g per 10s from quints and mastery, another 10g per 10s from two of the items, and a passive 10g per 10s. You're getting 24g per 10 seconds, or 144g per minute, doing nothing, This happens EVEN while dead. Effectively using your passive gold earned, you make
5760g in the course of a 40 minute game.

This allows you to buy items sooner, since you have more gold coming in even while farming. This is effective to use on a hero that can't farm very well. Or on a dps if you want to get your items faster.

If you look, most mastery points are not worth 200 gold. 2 Armor? Worth about 33 gold. 1.65 mp/5? About 90g. The difference is you get these benefits upfront.
