Not intrested; alert me when a new affordable tank is released, since the last two were 6300.

Caster, Laser Bird? He's absolutely 6300.

He definitely needs more health to stay alive. Even with the lifesteal, he'll need at least 2 Rylia's.

JitB is an AoE fear.

I kinda hope they deviate from the norm a bit and give us a true mage that isn't 6300- though I'm certainly not banking on it.

With his skillset and mediocre scaling I think a tanky dps build will be best on him (Abyssal Scepter, Rylai's, Zonya's, RoA, etc.)

I might even consider an early sfc just because he has no good farming skills.

Hate to say this but...he looks pretty boring to play. He reminds me of a less creative version of Malzahar (who actually has character). Just my first opinions on seeing the video.

You mean the one titled "The Raven"? Who'da thunk

And it is and always has (at least since ptr) been called NeverMOVE. Patch notes verify this. It's a play on nevermore though

With the way Torment is worded, I assume the target takes extra from all of his damage, so a slightly hybrid build (sounds crazy) may actually be the optimum dps build. With DFG, Lichbane, Rageblade, and some AP stacking, he can pull out some crazy melee burst (which synergizes well with his ult, and the fact that he has slows and roots)

Something to try at least.
