Is the new WotA really worth the gold any more?
Gunblade gives more AP and more burst, vs 10% CDR and some mana regen?

It's basically the old Spirit of the Spectral Wraith. Guys like Vladimir and Mordekaiser are still very likely to pick it up. In general, if you're not going to make use of Gunblade's AD/Life Steal/cooldown-on-autoattack you're better off with WotA

Edit: Life Steal, not Spell Vamp

Well, I tried it on Brand, and I must say I liked the results.

Brand is not very mobile, so the spellvamp is helpful to survive, and you also need the mana regen and CD reduction for extended fights. It could give a bit more AP to compensate for the loss of the aura tough.

they basically turned wota into wraith.
i miss old WoTA. i loved comboing them with swain / vlad or any ap spell vamp set up. it was the only way to make spellvamp actually noticeable.

Phreak replied to my thread!
My life is complete. Thank you.

Seeing how it's intended for characters like Vlad and Morde though, why not remove the mana regen in exchange for some AP?

The AP loss plus mana regen makes it really unpalatable to me now for manaless mages like Vlad. Mana using champs may find it more useful now though.

Not sure yet though.

I know one thing for sure, it is amazing on Swain now.

Have you considered reading feedback on the change? I among other people are not happy about it's MP5 and the usefulness of said MP5 in champions who use WotA...

Yeah, but now we can't stack spell vamp. Meanwhile no limit for life steal.

Seems fair.

Phreak is Challenger.
Morello is Gold.

We should give Morello's job to Phreak maybe it would be more balanced.
