This looks like it will be amazing on Jungle Yi.

I'm still waiting on the items that will solve the AD Caster itemization issues and late game effectiveness problems.

What's it built from?

Why isn't the Tiamat the upgrade of the Hydra instead of the other way around?

If you get a ravenous hydra and a tiamat will the passives stack like most unique passives or only happen once still?

You have spared me disappointment by allowing for aoe on-hits.

PS Can you please tell the balance team to make Shyvana's scaling not so bizarre? Like give her W an AP ratio or something at least. Makes no damn sense for a champion to do almost entirely magic damage while having an armor debuff and two spells (one of which deals magic damage) that scale with AD, and it results in no items really feeling good on her in terms of making her scale.

I just realised this item on Zed allows him to instantly get max stacks on BC

Ult > Active + 1x Auto attack + 3x Shuriken (one from W and R clones) = instant 5 stacks for 30% armour shred waiting for your Ult mark to detonate afterwards

(Yes, that does mean JIV applies two stacks of the new BC with his passive.)

AE range is much larger than the old Tiamat - but you run into damage falloff there.

Basically, around old Tiamat range you get 60% damage. 100 units past old Tiamat range, you get 40% damage and 200 units past old Tiamat range, you get 20% damage.

The Active Cleave is even larger than the passive cleave - and gets to about 400 units.



I believe so - based on how Nasus' Q is hooked up. We might need to revisit this in the future but for now, let's see how it goes.
Hooray Nasus buff!

I like it, right now I am thinking OP but ohwell I don't have any clue on balancing items and such...

How strong is it if Jayce activates his Max Attack Speed thing and goes into Cannon Mode, allowing him to Hammer a person 3 times rapidly?
If you're in cannon mode, you're ranged. No Tiamat procs for you.

Tiamat is currently double regen items + long sword + pickaxe - but we've been pondering whether it should be a Health + AD item rather than a HP Regen + AD item and seeing what would be better.

Nope - note that their unique passives are both named 'Cleave' - this is part of our new tooltip terminology to basically state that if you have a unique passive named Cleave, you don't benefit from any other unique passives named Cleave.

you say it doesnt work with range, but will it work with parrrley?
Although Parley is a ranged spell, Gangplank himself is Melee, so Parley will trigger Tiamat.
