Utility Mastery: Increases the duration of shrines, relics, quests, and neutral monster buffs by 15%/30%

Seems to me that increasing such regular bonuses to health, mana, speed, ect. by 30% would make it almost necessary for any champ playing Dominion to take the Utility Tree for it. What think you?

i think the health/mana pickup is instant so that one wouldnt be effected, the speed boost and relic would though. How many times in a given game are you going to be able to get the relic though? Im curious how this works for quests

I believe your team gets a buff for completing a quest, so I think it just increases the duration of said buff.

Indeed. Completing a quest gives your entire team the Mark of the Conqueror buff, which the mastery would increase the duration by 30%.

I guess it depends how the pickups work. If they regen a certain amount over a certain period of time then the time/amount may be increased by 30%. I dunno, seems like a "must have" mastery to me.

Not necessarily of fair comparison because people do Baron less, but does everyone get the duration buff because it makes Baron last longer?

The mastery only effects the buff on yourself. You all get the buff at the same time, but it's still technically a different buff on every person--one person dies and loses it, but it won't take it away from anyone else, etc.

30% isn't a huge deal, but it's definitely significant.


I really think the offensive mastery tree needs a buff.
Stats like Brute Force and Lethality are hardly worth putting points into unless you're a hard carry or assassin.

This makes it hard to get to Havoc even if we wanted to.
