I think that's why higher level LBs are leveling up their w first. But it's not a reliable waveclear since it's your escape and you're in melee range essentially and can be cced and burst down hard if you try to waveclear like that while having a turret seiged.

I think her biggest strength is how underestimated she is late game. Or ya know, you could just lose lane and try to win top or bot lane. Or kill the jungler at their red. Get fed some other way and sacrifice your turret. But personally, I hold that turret as long as I can. If it goes down and people are still laning, then I'm free to win other lanes.

In any event, I think she's perfect the way she is. I don't want to see anything change on her and I don't care if she has a low win rate. As long as I win with her I'm happy.

OPINION STARTING

I think the issue is less about LeBonk and more about the other assassins. Assassins used to have relatively poor farming tools. Akali stands out to me as one. Back in the Day™ Akali would have to be pretty exposed to farm via E and Q, which required using her W over the minions to farm. If bullied, she'd have to hard engage and fight them off, or suffer through lackluster farm until she hit 6, which is where she could force a kill or back, then farm up, and continue the trend of bullying.

LeBonk has a lackluster farm except for her R'd W, because she has rather strong bullying potential. Just poke and silence and then while your opponent plays cautiously, you auto attack farm at range. Even Kassadin, who has all of one farm tool pre-6, can get farm because of the poke designed to hinder mages (silence) and can "na-na-na-na-na-na you can't catch me" post-6.

Case in point, I don't really thing it's her farm that needs to be looked at because of her role and kit. I think it's more an issue with those other assassins have better farming tools in their kit, making them better/easier picks to assassinate someone with less risk.

I could be horribly wrong, but that's what I would like to see over LeBonk's W buffed to add minion damage to it (Seeing other assassins reduced in their ability to free farm far better).

LB would have to trade her god like laning phase trading for farm. not only does she deal truckloads of damage with a silence and snare and slow. it usually happens over 1-2 seconds.

This is just me, but I think there's room to change her E. If you make it more like Leona's "Haha I Touched You With My Sword Now I'm Licking Your Nostril," I think it could help. Make her chain go through minions and deal damage as it goes. It adds another wave clear potential and gives her the possibility to be more useful in team fights so she can avoid monsters and minions. Just a thought though.
