it means it provides the buffs of the base BUILDER when you use a mastery. So for example when you are in determination, shield bash, quick thrust, and Warden's Taunt provide a +2% buff to partial block, parry and evade chance. If you equip the master of spear trait and use your sp-sh mastery to make the boot, you will still get these +2% bonuses, which you wouldn't otherwise. Note that this effect only works in combat, and not while battle-prepping.
