And there was much rejoicing.

I hope this is a joke. It sounds pretty moronic, tbh.

Let's see, stealthed traps...teemo, shaco...hmm, who else?

That's all I can remember. An item that specifically hard counters two champions (or at least parts of their kit) is pretty ridiculous.

Nome, I take back everything I said. If what you said is true, I love the new Lightbringer now. Like, uber love it.

What kind of range will the active have? I was always upset with Grez's because I felt like it needed about 50-100 more range to activate.

Teemo is problematic on Dominion high Elo and TT.
Shaco is super toxic and ruins many games for low to mid-high Elo on Dominion.

This is a way to "nerf" these champions on TT/Dominion without affecting them on SR. Exactly what people asked for.

This is going to be especially beneficial for TT. Where Grez should be a required purchase for many champions as it is.

that seems like a really awesome idea, will that passive show up on hexsweeper as well?

Edit: are we suggesting passive names? I'd giggle at 'nerf teemo'

Nome, since every Unique ability has a name attached to it, can you dub this one "Fighter Disarm"? Especially if the range is so small that you trigger every trap just as it's revealed!

I feel this would be greatly appreciated, and I do presume to speak for everyone that answers to my name in the room I'm currently in. Also, it'd be a nice homage to the "No Thief" parties in BG games and various NWN worlds.

I don't know, I think the unique passive should be called "F*k You Teemo," but that's just me.

Don't worry, 100 magic dmg on AD Carries won't do anything, build a Mercury Threads /basic mr item that you'd normally have in your build any way and you won't even notice it. Now if it was physical dmg than it would actually make sense. 20% Chance to proc maybe 25dmg. OP....

It hard counters the primary method players use those abilities, yes. But then again, so does Oracle's, so this isn't really a new precedent. It's a 450 distance reveal range, so a Teemo or Shaco can still certainly lure you into a trap if you're not paying attention, or if they drop a trap in the middle of a fight, it's just as useful.

It won't be on Hextech Sweeper for now, since it's rather late to put stuff in for next patch (it gives our QA a lot more work). It will likely show up next-next patch. Until then, no passive name.
