Hammer of Halting [Advanced Tier Item]
250 health, 25ad, 15%cdr, 15%armor pen.

USE EFFECT: Target champion cannot exceed their base movement speed for 8 seconds. (60 sec cd) 2100g. The particle can be a little hammer that baps them on the head.

BUILDS FROM:
Ruby crystal(180hp 475g), brutalizer(25ad, 10% cdr, 15% arp, 1337g)

Who would buy it?
Primarily bruisers, melee casters, ad assassins.

Why would I want this?
Trying to counter and trap slippery (self speed boosting) champions such as yi, gp, garen, kennen, sivir, warwick, talon, udyr, rumble, teemo and more. It could also nullify speed boosts given to the champion momentarily (such as shurelia’s or song or celerity or time warp).

I'd be very interested to seeing more use items, since they encourage more strategic gameplay than usual. Thoughts?

Yi: Immune to slows. This is a slow. Would be pointless.
GP: Removes CC with his W. Would be pointless.
Garen: Removes slows with his Q. This is a slow. Would be pointless.

I figure this would use the same semantics as Judging with Seal of Justice from WoW, in that in limits your maximum runspeed to 100% (normal run speed), yet does not actually count as a Movement Impairing Effect or slow. It would be unique in that regard.

Why not Halting Hammer?

Frozen Mallet already fills this role.

Totally not OP. Frozen Mallet is already doing this job without going onto insane overkill. While there should be a chance for you to catch up, they should also have a chance of escaping.

...A slow IS a removal of speed. Period.

Whether the slow is a % or flat value is moot. You're still removing their speed (aka slowing them).
