so what does that tell ya?
Unfortunately you can't judge him by that - CertainlyT helped me out on Zed while I was out of town but I was his main designer. And since he's my first, we're just going to wait and see rather than pre-judging him. I can tell you I've heard both that he's overpowered and underpowered so I think the jury is still out.

Hes a mele assassin, and for the most part his burst is highly iffy an hard to land. He seems UP-balanced imo, though his high end will be rewarded.

I think he's ok balance-wise, his ult has a REALLY long cooldown, and he kinda needs that (or to be fed) to beat anything besides the squishies of squishies, without lots of poking down first anyway.

I've only played the one game with him so far (gonna play a few more atleast today if I can), but I enjoy him so far, he's got lots of neat tricks you can do with practice, I can tell.

i dont think he will be very tanky at all if people want any sort of reliable damage out put on him. all of his skills sans ulti scale off bonus ad if i recall correctly and he really needs the swaps with his shadow he is to have any way at all of catching or escaping as an assassin

Zyra was OP, but Morello was a major desigenr of hers too and took the blame for that and Darius only took a 0.1 nerf on his apssive and the grace period, so he was not really OP but just a little too strong.
