If you are about to attack a turret that an enemy champion is standing right next to and you have invested a single point into W, do not attack that turret.

Because the allmighty stupid people have made it so attacking a turret will aoe out onto the champion and cause the turret to attack you.

Why do you think they added a toggle to Cho'gath's Vorpal Spikes?

or, just putting it out there, but you can activate the ability to do extra damage and remove the aoe splash instead and then you'll be hitting the tower for a larger damage and not have to worry about the tower targeting you cuz you accidently hurt the enemy

wrong, activating the ability does not remove the aoe.

Hey Temlam, i think they are making a new feature so that attacking turrets don't splash onto enemy champs nearby. Something like that, I read it on one of the Q&A threads with the developers

This is a good point, and is a justification that Malphite's W should be changed to a toggle, for the same reason as Cho's. unfortunately, it already has an active, so this is impossible. Honestly, i'd rather have it just not have the passive. It's pretty weak and E is a much better way to farm anyway.

I have honestly never taken note of that itself.
so basically, just activate w and wait 6 seconds for the active to fade and then attack the turret?

lol Id rather not put any points into w, the aoe is nothing when you build tank anyway hehe.
