    All the specializations say +xx% __________ Mastery

    I have no idea whatsoever what that effects on any given skill tree.
    Please add descriptions to those Specialization skills so we know what they do.

    What does +xx% heavy armor mastery do for you?
    What does +xx% shield mastery do for you?
    Blades mastery?
    Bludgeon mastery?

    I'm not talking about the listed skill descriptions on each individual skill that say what is gained from mastery, but the actually passive mastery bonus you supposedly get.

    There is a passive mastery bonus? I don't remember hearing about that.

    It's like whatever it says it does to a skill it does mastery% of that effect, but it's not really consistent or clear. This is another part of a big problem with lack of, unclear, and misleading information on what your stats and skills do.

    I was always under the impression the lack of 100 percent transparency on algorithms was both intended to curb cheating or gaming of the system and also to protect trade secrets.

    Hmm sorry what? I presume that the specialization will +%% be for ALL the skills/passives in that tree right? If not I am so going to brake my keyboard.

    As far as I know, it is a +% to ACTIVE skills only in the tree and only the effects that are spoken off in each active skill. Ex, Bludgeon Mastery will increase the Damage Reduction effect of Break Weapon, but no the damage of the skill. It will increase the damage of Knockback, but nothing else for that skill. It will also not effect the passives at all.

    Now, with spells, you do have the added Attunement increase that it provides, so it will indirectly give a passive benefit in that way. But I do not believe attunement effects the passive skills either.
