In the spirit of sharing information I would like to give you all a preview of the support portion of the sustain remake that we are gradually pushing out to solve the sustain problems. The goal of the changes was to lower total healing per second, while trying to retain the saving power of the heals, or even increasing them. In the cast of some characters who suffer from lacking of things to do due to cooldowns, we've given much more power to their other abilities, and made them more frequently castable.

Once again a disclaimer: These changes are not final until they're live, and may be subject to change, please do not use this against me as I would love to continue this exchange of information.

More coming soon when I get the info. I don't have information on the other healers yet.
If you want to discuss healing changes, join the PVP.net chatroom "SupportDiscussion" , I'll try to hang out in there when I can.
sweet. Got sick of soraka heal all day.
Edit: On further note, these changes are still up for discussion. I like the fact that sustain is getting nerfed, however, I believe the soraka nerfs go a bit too far.
I don't think anyone likes the current sustain meta and i like the change in direction. However, at present, these changes to soraka's heal's are really detrimental to her viability.
wow, supports will be ****
Great news everyone!
i like it
Dayum. Soraka is gonna get hit hard.
