Do you think it's a buff or a nerf? I can't seem to even understand why

Hextech Sweeper

  • Total gold cost: 1435 (combine cost: 150)

They reduced the cost to build by almost that of 1 amp tome, and reduced the ability power it grants by 5 less than the removed amp tome. And the active lasts longer.

Buff: get it faster and cheaper, and get 5 free AP while you're at it. The active now lets you easily knock out two shrooms in the duration rather than half-killing the second shroom.

Hell freaking yes its a buff.
My fast sweeper build just got even faster, and I'll be upgrading to the Kindlegem 435 gold earlier ^_^

Hextech sweeper was never bought for the AP it gave, but because of the reveals. The fact that it's getting cheaper just makes it better.

Yes, the reveal + CDR/health mean you will still keep it lategame. It's just too good of an item to ever think about selling.

Your fizz may be happy at the sweeper buff, but the DFG nerf is going to hit him hard. DFG was one of the most convenient pieces in the CDR buildset.

Teeeechnically it's barely an AP item anymore, it's just a good utility item nearly anyone can use efficiently now. Which I presume was the point of the change. Seriously, I can see bruisers buying this now.
