Love, love everywhere!
Hey there, brave summoners!
New patch, new post, this is the rule, right?
Let’s start with this fine lady Fiora! The Spotlight answered a lot of questions, like the counter of her shield. Blocking and attack and returning a portion of its damage? Awesome! Her passive can maintain her in lane for as long as she wants, she has a dash like most assassins, an E that makes her Master Yi’s daughter and an incredible ultmitate. I won’t go over the details, as I already did it on my last post, but believe me, this girl can be a nightmare against your solo top.
Talking about ladies, let’s discuss Lux! I like to think about her as a new kind of supporter, more like a “vision supporter”. The changes on Lucent Singularity were very well made as you can now slow enemies and light an area without worry about the cooldown, and the vision granted when she ults is just sweet. Of course a supporter Lux will still have to buy tons of wards, but the extra vision from her skills makes the lane as clear as your base.
Moving on, BROMACIAAAAA! Ehrm…sorry… I got a little excited about our favorite barbarian (Tryndamere says: “What…what did you just say? RWARRRRRRRRRRR *Undying Rage*”)! This great guy just got some nice and needed buffs! Axe Throw (aka Undertow) got increased damage, new scaling and reduced cooldowns. Whats is not to love about this? Maybe it could stun the first target it hits, since Olaf doesn’t have a dash and has only 325 base ms…but, oh well, I guess it’s too much to ask for now. At least he gets nice armor/mr buffs from his ult now. But keep on praying for more buffs, Olaf players!
Finally, just some minor changes. Increased mana cost on Alistar’s heal was expected, since dear Riot is nerfing every sustain resource (Fiora says: “Look at my passive, you mad bro?”), the nerf on Ziggs’ Hexplosive Mines are okay, the nerfs on Shen were also expected, but don’t worry, our ninja is still a top champion! Oh, and the changes on chat announcements are great!
By the way, there’s now a Blitzcrank bot! FEAR THE GRAB!
