Frozen Mallet isn't really required on him either - He doesn't necessarily need more sticking power, I don't believe.
AP-based damage is modulated by his skills' ability to apply it.

Amumu and Singed scale really well with AP since they are guaranteed AoE damage.

If they are unreliable, they need excellent ratios-- see Sion.

So this is what occurs in practice with Leona, no one builds AP on her, instead opting for Triforce or atmallet to exploit her W and simultaneously stick hard to reapply CC and deal sustained damage.

Of course I don't know this champion's ratios, passive, or complete skill functions, but it sounds as if that's what I'm gonna want to do with him.

Get in close with movespeed boost, begin sticking, get in front of target, anchor to wall at appropriate moment.
His E may do all that for me, I'm not sure. (Aside from the movespeed boost.)

Xypherous why are you so awesome?

I can only imagine that Xypherous is busy answering these questions on his smartphone while he's busy rescuing a damsel from an exploding munitions factory while being chased by an irksome dragon via swinging on a grappling hook out a window all the while being shot at by hordes of ninjas wielding enchanted SMGs that shoot flaming bullets as they whizz by his face close enough that he can feel the flames. But he doesn't care, he has a small smirk on his face because he enjoys giving us information out of a metaphorical eyedropper.

And he's got the kind of smartphone that can browse the forums while he uses his bluetooth headset to bark orders at the champion design team back at riot that he has working into the wee hours of the morning.

And he values the discussion too much to bring this up. Because he knows how awesome we already think he is without having to say anything.

I'm willing to bet that Xypherous walks around the riot offices wearing a large magnificent cape with a gigantic X on the back

I bet his ultimate is Kraken's charge on steroids.

And his shield sounds like the shield Shen was meant to have instead of his paper mache shield.

Well thanks for answering our questions, I think I have a clear idea of what to expect.

I have one question though.

Is he going to be as ugly as Urgot?
