Please fix her Riot!!!!

Unlike other AD carries who carry their team midgame, Tristana needs to be carried by her teammates instead.

The thing about her midgame is that in teamfights, she simply can't jump in to fight, and her autoattack damage isn't good enough yet. E active is a very weak DoT. So, all she has is her autos and her ult in a midgame fight, which is rather mediocre.

The problem with an ordinary buff.

Tristana is in an awkward place to buff.
If you buff her base damage, her early game will be nearly unstoppable with an hyperaggressive support.
If you buff her utility, her already godlike lategame will just become more godlike.

The solution:

As of right now, most of her early game burst comes from her jump.
What I propose is switching the damage source from her W to her E.

1. Reduce W's damage (hell, make it 0 for all I care), but keep the utility.

2. Make E active an AA modifier; that way, the range scales with level.
3. E active base damage is lowered, but it now scales off AD.
4. Half of total damage of E active is frontloaded in the first tick, rest are distributed over 4 seconds.
5. E passive can be toggled.
6. Lower the cooldown on E active as necessary. (16 seconds at all levels currently)
7. E active resets autoattack timer. (Like Sivir W)
I came up with a possible solution for Trist mid game around a week ago.
Along with the QoL changes, I think Trist can finally see some light...

Also, +1 and bump

Oh man, I wish I had seen this thread earlier! It is very well written and well thought out. I would definitely appreciate an E rework (it is a very lackluster ability outside of laning phase, imo) and some QoL tweaks (improved animation on Rocket Jump, removing the delay on Q, etc.)

If these things were implemented, then I would be a very happy Tristana player

Thanks!

Yeah, from all the other ad carries, I think she deserves more of the QoL changes and a change in her E as well as changing her clunkyness over all.

Glad you liked it!

i think they should make her e an auto attack mod. This would make it scale with her lvl. The problem with lowering the cd on e is that it would make ap trist even more of a bully in lane. I think if they cleaned up her auto attack animation and made w less bad, she be viable.
