I don't think another hit to DS takes mastery totally out of the equation like you're making it sound, indeed it brings "the equation" back into play, which is working as intended. Mastery was getting too close to being "the clear answer", which is something Blizz wants to avoid like the plague. When it comes to reforging, enchanting and such, there's supposed to be a choice, not a clear, unquestioned "everyone says do this" answer. We're supposed to hem and haw, season to taste, and perhaps even maintain a healthy balance. Blood shield was getting far too close to "after stamina, stack this, no question", and that's wrong.At the end of the day, the guys writing the encounters are working for the same company doing the class balancing. This is their class design: that mastery is attractive, but not a no-brainer to tunnel vision stacking debates. We have no choice but to trust them, or not play. I like playing, so I shall do so.

I WAS using a balanced set-up, now I'll be ditching Mastery ASAP.
