I agree with the sentiment that its usage can expanded now to bruisers

It's kind of a buff. It's really more of an alteration. Removing one of the Amp Tomes makes it more viable for tankier champs to pick it up. It's be interesting to see how it plays out, as now most champs wont feel bad for buying it.

My friend said that after the Wriggle's nerf (no life-steal, smaller procs) and the Sweeper buff, he moved to getting Sweeper on bruisers on TT (on the PBE, yes).

So no one at all is worried about the decreased power per slot of it?
I'll still buy it in the same situations I think, and possibly even more situations, since it's now even criminally cheaper, but might be more inclined to remove it from that most elusive of creatures, the full build.

@0shi nah, the monstrous utility of sweeper means it would still have a perfectly viable place in a full 6 items build.

It's only a difference of 15 AP, while it still gives full health and cdr bonus's.
Totally viable end-game.

@NavyGothic nah, Kassadin will still get away np. His blink pretty much out-ranges your missle-lock, especially if he blinks over a large wall.

Ssshhh, don't ruin my fantasies of slaughtering Kassadins. They're almost as good as my Jayce and Teemo murder dreams.

I thought about this, too, but it's only 15 AP worse. Imagine this: After 6 items, would you even invest 435g more to get 15 extra AP? Doesn't really matter.

It's more relevant that you're finishing items 435g earlier in the game and reaping the bonus stats for combining stuff.

It's basically a straight up buff. It costs less to FINISH Hextech Sweeper now than it did to get a Kindlegem and 2 Amp Tomes (=200 hps, 10% CDR, and 40 AP). I'd way rather have 300 HPs, 10% CDR, 25 AP, and a huge active.
