I'm kind of confused about these mastery changes with 5.3. Patch Notes said it got nerfed by 2% yet i lost over 10% of mastery over night. Did i miss something here?

For Holy, right? You now need more mastery rating to get 1% of mastery than you needed in 5.2 (I believe it's 480, up from 400, but I could be wrong). Because of this, everyone loses a lot more than just the base 2%.

It's a scaling nerf as well. Basically it's a 16.6~% nerf, or multiply your old mastery by .83 to get your new mastery. It won't affect group/raid play much (you'll notice most on solo play).

I had the same drop. Why wouldn't they put that in the patch notes? With this nerf is it better to switch to crit or haste as the main secondary stat?

Mastery is king of consistency, crit is king of rng. Your choice. I don't know more than a handful of legit paladins using crit builds, and they're doing it more as a test than anything, often switching back to mastery within a few days.

This was a much needed holy paladin pvp nerf. We were doing way too well already.

I'm definitely sticking to my mastery build. Maybe now our resto druids can actually get to outheal the tanks since there's more healing to go around :D
