That's an oxymoron. Mobility is the single most OP thing a champ can have in LoL.

Frankly I hope not. I'd rather Riot find a way to let assassins build how they're supposed to so they fill the role they're intended to fill instead of allowing them to limp along as a bruiser build. The problem inherent with assassins is that if they're capable of doing their job without having to make concessions to their item choices (ie: they're allowed to build damage with minimal survivability outside of GA), they get targeted for nerfs because these champions are designed to jump on the face of their target, blow them up, and hopefully get out alive. This kind of playstyle is, by and large, "un fun" to most people (I'm not one of these people -- stealth and nuke characters were always my favorites).

If they find a way to let Assassins build their intended items without ruining them or the game in the process, then I'll be much happier. The last thing we need to see is another pseudo-assassin like Irelia or Rengar, who were given the kind of kit that allows them to not only assassinate whoever they please, but continue to stick around in the fight as moderately tanky bruisers.

It doesn't matter how mobile you are if you can't do anything with it, and honestly his mobility isn't exceptionally spectacular anyway. You spend most of your time using your one shadow for burst damage or safe harassment, and the cooldown on it is pretty long, especially if you max it last. While his ultimate produces a second shadow that behaves the same as your normal one, it's always placed behind the target of your ultimate and that isn't usually a good place to try to jump to unless the target was so out of position that his team isn't anywhere near him while he tries to run away.

EDIT: more downvotes because I know what I'm talking about. Have any of you even played him on the PBE or anything?
