NOME SAVES THE DAY.

You shouldn't let Xypherous stay up so late... he starts to say funny things.

Well, he actually replied to my post but I don't think he got it....

Which means that if you don't get mileage out of the Heal / Regeneration passives from being a bot-laner, for example - This item would be highly discouraged. Essentially, the only character who would be able to pick this up and not suffer are Revive/Farm/Stall bot-laners - which is an acceptible niche, in my opinion.

Windmill or Roamers don't get much mileage out of regeneration and they definitely shouldn't pick this up before 7 minutes - otherwise they're giving up a huge amount of combat statistics. If you're picking this item up *after* 7 minutes - it doesn't matter. The 20% Revive passive won't actually give you any more revives due to how Revive's CD is calculated when you use it.

So - the only person you could probably "get away" with getting an extra revive on is bottom lane, which I think is actually kind of interesting from a strategic perspective as bot lane chara need more excuses to transition out after they've farmed the game.

Basically Xypherous doesn't know how Dominion works.

Nome you need to step in before he suggests changes. You're our savior!

Oh wait, he did.

Buy it at start and you'd be able to get the item slot back by level 6. Take bot tower, port back, buy boots, return. If this item is added it'll become the new starting item on EVERY bot laner, but I hardly doubt seeing it used outside of that. Prospector/boots top lane is too important to start with.

What I am worried about is there being changes to the other items to reduce the cooldowns of other summoners. Reduced Exhaust cooldown item? Reduced Garrison cooldown item?

I think you're wrong Chronicle. You go bot with no extra hp, AP, AD, or anything. You're likely going to have to blow your revive in no time, only to have the same HP as someone who started Prospector/Ruby crystal, but they still have more offensive stats over you, and their revive.

There are bot laners out there who just want to stall out the lane against hyper agressive champions, or just don't need much early game help. Gragas and Karthus can stall out the lane safely with the regen this item provides.

The item is interesting in that it is indeed niche, but is a trap most of the time.
