First of all, are you people at Riot aware of it? Secondly, are you planning on fixing it? I think the difference between 15% and 35% slow is rather huge.

(Twin Fang works like an AoE spell and only slows for 15% instead of 35%)

Edits: So apparently this is not a bug, and it is intentional.
Having the description of an item being a flat-out lie doesn't sound like a very good idea. So as of now this thread is about fixing the issue.

It's OK on Ashe because she's squishy, doesn't deal much damage, and is balanced around it.

It's OK on Frozen Mallet because it's only 35% if it's a melee attack.

It's not OK with Vladimir's Q or Cassiopeia's E because they are very long range, spammable spells. It's a little different if XZ is on your face perma slowing you, versus if Cassiopeia is kiting/deadzoning you with a 35% slow on E. That is the working theory anyway.

You guys do bring up some good points that there are plenty of other reappliable slows in this vein. It's something we can investigate... we'll think about it. I *do* hate exceptions like this... with a passion.

A quite reasonable idea by Klaste:

The only problem I see with this for Cassiopeia is that she'd be unable to get the 35% slow, unless she for some reason uses Twin Fang first, making the item synergize rather badly. But for an idea, it's a first step.

Cassi has more bugs then the void.

Sorry for the very very bad joke.

Bump for fix.

This is quite a bug since it's her only single target spell, and therefore her only single target slow that should slow by 35%. Her W isn't a mobile slow option.

same with vlads q.
i think they tossed out some dumb reason. but then again, vlad doesnt really need any more advantage then he does already.

Because a constant application of 35% slow would be op

because she has two fangs.

thus, the slow is split.

...

right?
