I'm not gonna tirade on why I don't like it, because you either do or you don't. I don't even like barrier in Proving Grounds, though I accept it there because of the often randomed nature of PG games, and it allows people playing champions they aren't the best with some room for error. But adding it to Summoner's Rift? Now not only do I have to worry about the carry's heal, I have to worry about his barrier AND any support skills that'll be buffing him?

Will ignite at least reduce the shield it gives them?

You forgot to take into account the fact that most players take Flash/Ghost before taking any other summoner spells. You will rarely have a player who takes both heal and barrier. If they do, just have the jungler gank their lane.

Ultimately, I'm just buttravaged because I think it's a stupid spell. Don't mind me.

They're making Heal the support spell it's supposed to be - sounds like they'll be making it heal the full amount to teammates or something.

Inb4 Carry takes barrier, support takes heal, suddenly has 1.2k HP at level 1.

Im really hoping that this is one of the change sthey decide not to implement. It would make champions that have naturally high damage mitigatoin absurd in the early levels.

Support takes heal.

Ignite for those that regenerate (going against Morde/Mundo/etc)-- it's being nerfed.

Assassins will likely want Flash/Ghost/Exhaust/Possibly Ignite still

So.... What do tanks get? I'd say this is nice for them.
