Hey Scruffy,
What are your future plans for the assassin class? It kind of feels like they are going to all have to be reworked or are all eventually just going to be nerfed out of competetitive play. I want my favorite class to be strong but every time they are they get nerfed without even breaking a fifty percent win rate. Are you allowed to talk about this at all?

I wouldn't be surprised if they added some mobility to Taric through his ultimate (mini gap-closer into the slam we see, possibly a well rewarding skill-shot) but removing/lowering some the invisible power with his auras. That's complete speculation though.

I suppose Taric's always been very up and down when it comes to balance. Lack of counterplay is one of the reasons I'm guessing.

His new passive feels very good though. Good first direction. Adding some actual gameplay to his ult should make him feel more interesting.

I expected this.

Aside from Taric though, I feel only Soraka and maybe Alistar need a rework. Other supports, Janna for instance, just need tweaks until they feel stronger. I feel the range on her passive should be tweaked for instance (800 might be a bit low).

Something I'm wondering is why Sorceress Lux's splash art hasn't been updated yet despite people asking for the Chinese art for years.

Could you tell us anything about the next Champion up for a Visual Upgrade?

How is the Rengar rework going? Scarizard actually promised a new discussion thread about him like 6 weeks ago - no response yet. I'm really getting annoyed by the fact that his rework was said to be here "soon" when he's apparently not even remotely close to being finished...

for the sake of curiosity: Miss Fortune is on plan to rework?

Are you ever going to give Eve an ultimate ability, or are you just going to leave her in the dumpster (again)?

Thanks for starting a thread, Scruffy. I have a few questions on items I'd like to ask:

Is there any chance we can buff Tear of the Goddess right now? A lot of champions who used to use it no longer do, and just end up passing over it for other items like Rod of Ages or Ravenous Hydra.

What is the general stance on Armor Penetration and Magic Penetration right now? What's the direction you're planning on going there, if you're going to be altering anything?

And finally, what is the balance team's stance on Ravenous Hydra right now?
