Yeah, I got my ass handed to me as Singed last night...Strength of Spirit was an amazing mastery for him. I still gotta figure out a good set for him...
My phoenix udyr seems pretty sick though, the 3% spell vamp on him really helps sustain when cooking down jungles. Makes mealmost wanna try to come up with some funky FoN spellvamp AP/tank phoenix tank udyr build...... but not really.

I think favor is the wrong word. The old mastery system was a series of broad strokes that add up to big gains, this new one is a series of very narrow decisions, which feels less like another set of customization and more like an extension of your rune page. Champs that need a little of everything are going to miss out verses champions that only need 1 or 2 stats to survive.
