Xypherous, Can you take a look at Quicksilver Sash?? It's great because it can remove stuns and CC (taunts, slows, etc), but it shouldn't remove suppression.

EDIT: If you want stats and other info, you can check out my thread here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2383978

Phantom Dancer being a good item isn't a bad thing (after all, why would I want a bad item?). But I think Phantom Dancer is too good of an item. It provides the most attack speed and crit chance in the game. It's also incredibly cheap for what it does. Aside from IE and Tri-Force, all other crit items pale in comparison. Even the ones with a useful niche, like Executioner's Calling, are completely overshadowed by the sheer efficiency and damage increase provided by PD. Throw in the move speed bonus and there's really no contest.

I understand that you're now saying that you're going to reduce the cost efficiency, but I don't think that does enough to increase the viability of other items it competes with.

Additionally, it's always bothered me that AD carries get to transition more easily into their PD by means of building zeal where fighters going for Wit's End have to save up for a huge Recurve Bow. Shouldn't it be the other way around?

I do agree that MBR was a trap item but dam I can't rush it anymore on shaco when i'm ahead for the instant barron pressure and solo potential

Hey Xyph, It's awesome to see you active in this discussion!

For my actual question: I'm fairly sure I read something about more active items coming in s3 and possibly some of them with cc effects. If this is the case, will we be seeing mostly actives like Blade of the Ruined King's, or is there any chance we'll see some actual cc for champions whose kits don't have them? Something like a 1/2 second silence on a moderate cooldown would be an interesting active, especially if you find your team lacking Crowd control.

On a somewhat related note are the item changes and jungle changes suuposed to shift the meta away from 4 people starting boots on each team?

I am gonna ask a ridiculously stupid question.

If Ionic Spark and MBR were so bad, why not just buff them?

On the topic of noob traps what about recurve bow and how it can't builds into any viable items for ad carries, is that going to change?
