please don't change Galio. He is perfect as is, my personal opinion but really. THere isn't anything wrong with him

I don't think much is changing. The last time rickless talked about it, the gist of it was moving the MR -> AP ratio to simply be MR ratios in the spells, then giving Galio an actual passive. Probably just number tweaks beyond that.

Lower mana cost and shorter cooldown on Idol makes me moist.

If you leave you him alone he's going to stay where he is, which is zero play in competitive play, and very VERY little play in game play.
The OP was spot on with the problems of his ultimate, its the fact that its a simple taunt. Keep in mind taunts duration reduces with tenacity. I feel like Shen's taunt is twice as useful than Galio's 140+ second cd ult, because atleast shen's taunt auto-positions because its a dash. He's just too sketchy.

it's not going to be a full-blown rework, but i do want to give him a new passive (while putting magic resist scaling directly into his kit) and then shift a few things around. i really want to get some changes on the pbe shortly after 3.11 goes live (i.e., when the pbe starts testing 3.12 content). once that happens, i'll be really excited to hear from everyone about how he feels.

Hope they make galio good because after the nerf he had about 80% of galio players gave up on him.

Rickless, since you are here, I'll just throw some suggestions for ya.

1. Can you somehow make the width of his E slightly larger (or atleast a better visual). Most of the time, my teammates don't even recognize it's available cause it's slightly harder to see. Also, the width of it makes it hard to utilize. It just seems like a strange ability at times. (The cast time makes it difficult to catch people with all the dashes and flashes). It just seems weird. What are your thoughts?

2. Can you make bulwark more noticeable as well? When others get shielded, they need to know they have a shield on. Bulwark, can be hard to see that it's on you (or others). I love a clutch cast of bulwark on my adc, they rarely actually notice that they had a 90 armor and magic resist bonus because it seems like it fades in the background of other effects. Your thoughts on this too?

I love the ideas for Galio you are throwing out. Keep it up!

Hey ricklessabandon, been trying to get a red answer to this question for awhile now.

Why is it that i can't see the burst range of Karthus Q with smartcast range indicators on? I thought you guys were against increasing difficulty via clunky controls.

You should change his ult to work like aatrox's q. Galio leaps in the air, slams down on target location and begins his taunt when he lands. This would remove his need to use flash every time he wants to ult the enemy team. It also provides some counter play by giving the enemy time to pull out a quick flash before he lands, if they have good enough reaction time.

Well then I will definately try to get on there and test him out for you.

What was with that unnecessary and fairly random nerf to his Q a few patches back? He already isn't a particularly strong or popular pick, lowering damage on him seemed contradictory towards making him more functional.
