Are we going to continue to act like Zed's W is fine? Because it's not.

Zed has too much slapped onto his W to max it last (the way riot wants us to do it it would appear). They nerfed E because Q was being maxed last. But Q or E will always be maxed last because of how important W is.

Mobility, Burst damage, utility, Deathcap like passive but for AD, gives vision, and gives you increased energy returns. Maxing this also gives your shadow a lower cooldown, which means it allows you to do all the above far more frequently.

How about instead of nerfing something that didnt need to be nerfed (Shadow Slash) you actually take some things from his W and spread them out in his kit.

  • Passive Bonus AD? Give it to his ultimate.
  • Energy Returns? Give that to Q and E, so that leveling it will also give you the ability to return energy. Suddenly Q doesn't seem so bad energy wise anymore if you choose to level it first.

You should be maxing E>W>R>Q

I can agree with what you say sir. The only problem I saw with nerfing him was he already has a crappy early game, and his energy sustain is terrible, but I can see how spreading out his kit more evenly would benefit his overall design.

thats what he's trying to say. it does so much that you cant afford to max it last or you'll lose out on all that delicious AD/mobility/energy refund.

Anyone who has played him a few times would not think that if they had actually tried maxing it early. It's great.

It also has an awesome habit of casting somewhere completely different then where you intended to cast it.
