I don't see how this item helps Rammus at all.

What's the point of slow when they are taunted? Rammus isn't the kind of champion that weaves autoattacks and spells, you powerball into target and turn all of his spells on at the same time. Unless the AoE is huge for this slow, it's not going to help his ultimate either.

Well, for starters, the AoE slow will be great for following up into teamfights. Not to mention, 15% CDR reduction and a 125% boost to one of his autoattacks (which even for his base damage isn't necessarily small). AS an AoE.

On top of giving him armor and AP of course. AP, AD, and Tank Rammus (the unconventional build) will be strong as hell. The point of the slow is that usually when Rammus goes into taunt initially teamfights ensue. Now, factor that into Rammus already having low cooldowns in the first place, you can initally rush into a team with Powerball, and keep them almost perma-CC'd. Powerball into a group, AoE slow them, autoattack once, slow them again for 3 seconds plus do AoE damage, taunt one person, autoattack, slow AoE damage again (because a 2 second cooldown means nothing to Rammus when you have to factor him going into DBC again xD), Rinse, Wash, Repeat.

The item effectively turns Rammus into an AoE ball of goodness. Now, couple that with Frozen Heart, and GO WILD.

Or better yet, think Alistar.

125% of base AD only, not total, you know. The extra damage is not in AoE, only the slow.

I stated that Disc in the first sentence I wrote xD And unless they worded that horribly wrong, "surrounding enemies" sounds like a cleave, seeing as the wording changes when looking at other Sheen-proc (Spellblade) based items.

Will have to try it to make sure. PBE queue over 3 hours, so not right now

Check because right now in any case it's an all-around damage increase for someone tanky as Rammus if so

I am so ready to put Frozen Fist in my Leona build. People say she can't deal damage... but they will learn.

The queue is not working properly.

Just keep canceling and trying to log in and it should eventually let you bypass the queue. Hopefully.

This works.

Also, I have a custom game hosted. RiotNome's Dominion Test Game.
