Have weapons requirements been changed?

I was on my low level account (level 138), yesterday and I noticed that I have Mang unlocked, but my red/brown masteries are below 30! I looked at my masteries in hero menu and there’s components for each color (hero, guild, kingdoms, class & pets), do they have any effects on it? oh also, I unlocked Hammer of Urskaya after leveling yesterday, that has the same (40 red/brown) requirement.
