Shen can spam his skills? thats news to me!
Kennen is already worthless, he needs all the help he can get.

Not going to be a big deal.

Ninja characters are not that great anyways... the exception being Shen. The energy system actually hurts Ninjas really really greatly late game.

It's a big deal for kennen. Not so much the other two. Shen can still hurt people and tank while his energy is low. Akali is just all burst, and then she can just wait for it to come back. Kennen's the one that needs to sustain spells to keep up his mark of the storm.

10 more regen over 5 not a big deal? I'm pretty sure that anyone who's taken 3 points in Meditation for an extra 5mp/5 would say there's a difference. Pretty sure if you take a Meki and/or combine that with Meditation for what, 12mp/5 would say there's a pretty notable difference too.

The whole 'concept' of energy was so that these guys can blow off their skills then have to wait a little bit before doing it again barring cooldowns, but at the same time have a basically limitless supply to use those skills.

That'd be doing the same thing as giving Energy Champions more ways to spam their spells.
plz explain how allowing her to reduce the cooldown of her ult passed %40 is the same thing as the energy buffs.

Don't think the energy runes' stats are a big deal right now but I thought the 200 energy cap was to limit what ninjas can do.

Thank God energy characters are getting some more customization. Whether or not this ends up adversely effecting balance a consideration, true. But as is, energy characters are far more limited in their builds and planning than any other types. It makes them much more boring, really. And the mastery problem, as was pointed out earlier, is huge. Energy characters are sometimes forced to waste large quantities of mastery points simply because of the mana incompatibilities.

Why even have energy instead of mana if the 2 are becoming more and more similar? Doesn't really make much sense other than theme......
