Skarner, The Crystal Vanguard
  • Crystal Slash: Skarner lashes out with his claws, dealing physical damage to all nearby enemies and charging himself with Crystal Energy for several seconds if a unit is struck.

Finally the mana bonus on tear

About gp though really make his passive slow scale.Make it start from 2 stacks and scale up to 4 or 5.FM or Triforce slow for 40% while his passive for only 21%

Overall this patch is awesome , but i really do think orianna's laning needs to be tonned down a little.Not dmg wise just higher mana costs.This wont affect her mid-late game in any way.Seriously 5 or 10 more mana onto any skill will make a HUGE difference in her early game.

Really happy to see the borderless window mode, alt-tabbing can be dangerous with my horrid graphics card.

Good to see teemo's shrooms buff.

Why the pirate nerfs?

This came out earlier than usual...
And wow, I really like the way this patch looks on paper.
So many fixes for little annoying things. So many small but meaningful buffs for champions.
Thanks a lot, Riot!
