its cool to have those new runes and all, but can we have some +energy items in game?
i mean im not asking for +400 but a little would be nice... like an item that gives hp and energy would be good for all ninjas.... etc...

Just got to be careful how they do the items, balance with them could be difficult, energy is all that hinders them late game.

Hes right, mainly its due to balance issues. Runes are more interesting because you are sacrificing other things but items are harder to balance for.

We did experiment with them internally, but they are tough to balance and weren't very well received. It's possible it could happen in the future, but I don't think it's a priority.

Except for Akali, her energy doesn't hinder her at all...and if it does, you're doing something wrong



I <3 Akali


Also: still wanting that Nurse Akali skin...
