Wait so is the Ravenous Hydra's active just a 1-hit active or does it last for a certain duration?

Xypherous, I'm curious. Would Kha'zix ever get this item? Or any AD/Caster Assassin?

I'd figure Kha'zix could get this to help isolate targets...but i'm not entirely sure.

This combined with black cleaver will probably make AOE damage more prevalent and increase the power of physical damage in general.

Have you considered reviewing the cost of armor to compensate?

inb4 bruiser meta :/

It's important to factor in a character's interactions with items when making them. Shyvana can get really ungodly Tiamat damage with her AoE on-hit, but fortunately it wasn't a good buy on her. Now Tiamat can be buffed without worrying about certain characters going completely over-the-top.

My question is, does the the lifesteal from other items work with the Hydras lifesteal passive. So if I had 100% lifesteal I would essentially get 100% cleave lifesteal as well correct?

No, the issue was if they created an aoe skill that applied on-hit effects then the Tiamat aoe would stack, causing a massive gibbage, like the aforementioned Shyvana dragon Q. It isn't as bad on the dragon Q because it's an ult.

Also, again is the splash true damage or not? Ie: does the splash/cleave factor in your enemy's armor or is the damage still quasi-true damage that's based on how much damage you deal to the target you initially hit?
Tiamat's splash was never true damage - so I'm not sure how this rumor ever started. :x

It's actually functionally impossible to deal physical damage that bypasses armor in our engine - so the quasi-true damage part was never true.

Edit: I have been corrected by various forum-posters. There is indeed a way to do this. Sorry guys. XD

It was possible to amplify an existing attack to deal true damage - but not a new separate instance.

It's an instant-cast cleave, allowing you to cleave without having a target.

I play AP Ez and having no way to clear minion waves hurts bad.
Xyph, can I get a hint about this?
Will the AoE ranged item give AD? Is there anything for AP's?

This is brings a whole new meaning to Bankplank.

Need farm the whole wave? Auto every minion once then fire a parrley. Suddenly coins shower into his beard. Sure the bonus is only gonna go off the first which may be a loss of gold... BUT THINK OF THE POTENTIAL!

Quoting for hopeful answer.
