Protection Warrior - Nerfs in 8.1

Warrior
Just saw post on wowhead about upcoming patch 8.1.

And what did I saw..? https://www.wowhead.com/news=287352/patch-8-1-ptr-27826-class-changes-elemental-shaman-feral-druid-talents-and-taunt

Nerfs for my Prot..? What's the point..?
you cant nerf something that is already garbage
Well, as you can see, they realized the opposite!
Well Drekhan. As youve read the ptr notes, im sure you also read the red bold text saying the following:

Warning: This build seems to have many unfinished changes. Spell without any highlighted changes are likely just attribute/flag changes which have little impact on their use or functionality. This is the first PTR build, so nothing here is final.
Many of these changes are recent hotfixes being merged into the baseline spell data.

The only thing theyve done is removing our current mastery. That will obviously get replaced with something else, as mastery would otherwise give us nothing as a stat.
These things are far from final.
Good to hear that. Thanks mate!
As a blue post confirmed it already, they removed mastery and the crit block from Shield block in order to make something totally new. And they said that they will work more to Prot warrior’s defensives
