What are you talking about... everyone's already doing that... even ADCs are building Warmog's eventually.

Here's a tip: There's actually two of it.

In before: Having %health damage and %armor shred doesn't make you OP automatically. Nope, but it sure as hell helps! Worst yet is Vi turns in to SuperJax late game while building no items at all. Seriously, remove %armor shreds and %health shreds from anything except VERY rare instances. You shouldn't be able to shred 15% or 20% of a target's armor off just because you touched them. At least Jarvan has to hit a skill shot and doesn't have 100% uptime.

One of these days I'm going to play Udyr, stack resistances, and not become useless in team fights because everyone and their mother gets free %resistance shreds these days.
Yeah - I think this is not off-point. It might not be what we hit in each, but I think this is a good commonality to look at.

When we get closer to messing with this (it's not the next patch), we'll talk more about the details. For now, theory away!

Drop the base values on Vi's W.

Reduce the armor shred duration on Jarvan's Q.

People will always think Morello is in charge of every single balance change, even though he is working on other things now.

The Nerf Master Suck Town reputation precedes you. D:

Makes me quiestion why people complaining abot this.

He's still the Big Kahuna. What else is there? Tryndamere, who pops up here and there, usually in response to the major community vs Riot threads and Zileas, who throws people off balance by talking about noodles.

We no longer get Guinsoo posts... pretty much ever. Phreak posts are rare, to say the least.

Have you ever given any thought to just how many people Morello had to slap around to make sure that the entirely of the Season 3 patch was against Irelia?

How much do you think toning down health will do to re-balance the bruisers? Elusive Xypherous quotes not withstanding, I'm just curious how much you think relatively standard dudes (J4, Xin, even Garen) becoming monsters in the past weeks can be chalked up to the Warmog's.
