so is pickpocket really worth it?

what's the math? for a ranged support hero, how many autoattacks do you ever really get in? multiply it by 3.

how many hits can you get in with melee? your best bet is probably a blitzcrank or someone, but that's still only 5g per hit. does it end up being worth getting this mastery?

i like it, it might not be "worth it" but i find its effectively 3 gold every 7 (pushing it) seconds

As someone whom normally plays Sona, I always have a smile on my face whenever I see that they have a melee support.

Its basically free gold.

Actually, since Wedge Antilles > Carriers, and Carriers = Instant win, then it should be Wedge Antilles > Instant win. He's just that good XD -PsionicDude

playing a game with blitzcrank right now and didn't have time to change my masteries from my ranged support. so here we go with pickpocket, guess i'll need to get a lot of grabs to make it worth it xD

Yeah, only really worth it on a Soraka or Janna or something. Someone who can easily fire off a projectile without worrying too much about getting wrecked in return.

Even then, I haven't noticed a huge difference in gold, even when taking effort to get an auto every five seconds or so. Worth it to that extent, but if you're pulling out hair over whether to grab it or something else, go with something else.

Until you're against a Leona and they realize how predictably you're about to go up and auto them. Didn't know if you noticed that Sona can be slightly squishy.

Its not worth it, but it gives you something for your harass, and if you are going 21 in utility as a support, theres nothing better to get IMO.

worth it on ranged supports, not worth it on melee supports
