The goal of the item was to beat health stacking, not for melee only to beat health stacking.

I know we're nerfing the active in a coming patch, because it's too good for ranged champion kiting.

Are we going to see X% speed steal if ranged and X% for melee or are you guys playing around with something else.

I suppose that addresses the biggest issue, but it still looks screwy in terms of efficiency when you hold it up next to BT.

Anyway...

What about Iceborn then? It shares a similar situation to BORK.

It offers a lifesteal + AD option instead of just having BT and gives AS for more AS heavy champions. The only issue is the active which is getting nerfed a bit. Making it melee only would hurt a lot of ADC range champions more than you might realize.

Riot needs to fix the active, not turn it into melee.

Is that why you added a MS steal to it?

Why not do this BEFORE you nerf Vayne? Vayne's power comes from rushing BoTRK, by nerfing the slow you are severely (and justifiably) nerfing Vayne... Youre gonna hit her with two seperate nerfs and she's not going to compare to other safe ADCs. :\

Why not change Botrk active to something simmilair to ghostblade active?
