MD; still worth using these days?

Pretty much just wondering if people still find MD worth the points currently, and if so what level you run it at. Relatively speaking I'm fairly mystic heavy in my top champs, I have 3 r3 mystics out of 10 and I use em pretty frequently.

Currently I have level 3 MD. But I'm pretty heavily debating on putting the points elsewhere, or pulling one point from elsewhere and going 4/5 MD.

Do you run MD? At what level? And do you find it's worthwhile on offence?

    With how much I'm playing diablo these days, yep, 4/5

    I run 4/5, but unless you have a bunch of high level mystics who benefit from it, you can stick to 3/5.

    Lvl 3 seems to be enough for me for now but I would consider adding one point for AW defense purpose in my case, just waiting to rank up sasquatch and dragonman for the same.

    I have it at 4/5 I believe and it is pretty useful. However I don't care much about masteries, I find them too expensive. I have WP1, DW5 and that's pretty much it. No Assassins and imo 1000ish units isn't worth the tiny upgrades in defensive tree. This amount of units is enough for a comfy clear of 7.2

    Got mine at 3/5 and when necessary I run mystic power boosts, but am slowly collecting cores to open it to 4/5 if ever needed. But 3/5 has worked well enough for me when I've used mystics.

    I run MD at lvl 4 and it's great generally but sometimes the push to full 3bars of power comes too fast like when I'm trying to get healing from Claire's sp2. The power meter just flies up to full before I have a chance to get the sp2 off but it's just great for controlling some tough fights.

    I'd like to run 4 or 5 but I only have 3 unlocked after the nerf and with full suicides and deep wounds I don't have the points needed for more anyway. Definitely worth it if you use mystics.
  • I run 4/5, I’m slowly saving for 5/5. I hate running mystics without MD like when I have suicides. Just isn’t the same, it’s a shame MD is here and it’s not just a basic part of most mystics kit or that you can’t have 5 points in a class based mastery without it counting towards your points cap

    If u are using magik, doom, manthing, sym supreme, sorc supreme and such champs then md is really great
  • SeraphionSeraphion Posts: 1,496 ★★★★
    For me MD lvl 4 is the sweetspot

    Just unlocked MD 3/5 today for Claire, Doom and Maw!

    Run MD 5/5 pretty much every day. It really just depends how often you use mystics and whether you do AW and place mystics on defense. It's still one of the most powerful masteries available

    I have R3 doom and Claire that I use a lot so I run MD4.
  • Will3808Will3808 Posts: 3,536 ★★★★★
    I run MD lvl 4. I really like it for when I’m running my top mystics.

    I run 5/5 always, its great.
  • TKS87TKS87 Posts: 372 ★★★
    Thanks for all the feedback everyone. Seems like the general consensus is that MD is still worth the mastery points and y'all have convinced me to keep it :). It's good to know that others still run level 3 and find it valuable. I might still sink the extra point to run 4/5 but for now, I'm content. Thanks again

    4 for me as well. 3 just wasn’t quite enough.
