Xypherous PLEASE GIVE US DETAILS ON THE MELEE AD CARRY ITEMS <3


Specifially will you make ghostblade strong so that it fits into more endgame builds for melee ad carries?

We need more items that are BETTER FOR MELEE's and WEAKER FOR RANGED such as ghostblade to give melee AD carries the strength they need without letting their ranged counterparts get out of hand.

I hope that The Black Cleaver isn't having it's Attack Speed buff removed for Cooldown Reduction :/

That's what make's it so Necessary late game, The fact that you get 55 AD, 30% AS and it's passive.

I am curious if hitting multiple bullets of graves buckshot would trigger The Black Cleaver multiple times. It seems like it should based on the other abilities described, but those are all DoT effects and this damage is calculated all at once.
Buckshot does indeed fire 3 bullets that can proc Black Cleaver 3 times. Graves is an AD Caster.

The trade-off here is whether Last Whisper or Black Cleaver makes more sense for you and your team. Black Cleaver promises early lane dominance into team shred, while Last Whisper is a mid-late game selfish armor penetration.

Item Active abilities. These are severely under-utilized at lower play, but incredible at higher levels. Along with the DFG rework, what sort of options have you considered for rebalancing actives, or for keeping new actives in check?
In general, we're trying to introduce more actives that can be used either out of combat, or pre-combat and then adding some actives with lower cooldowns - so that people can get used to actives in their rotation.

However, we still don't want active overload, where the majority of your items are actives. That's actually been something that's been interestingly messy to combat. :P

@Xypherous

Are you remaking Tiamats and Rylias?

So if I buy a Black Cleaver and a Tiamat, will the splash from the Tiamat cause armor reduction?

So I'm correct in that the armor reduction will take effect AFTER the ability, not before? So when Garen Decisive Strikes someone with Black Cleaver, the 5% reduction doesn't take effect until the next AA (or Judgement in this Case?). That's how in normally is, was wondering if it would be compensated for abilities, because a single cast isn't going to benefit.

Also Renekton being able to Slice and Dice for % and Flat reduction on potentially all or most of a team would be an immense buff, would definitely increase his late game team fight presence for the 10% increased armor reduction he places on select targets. Casters in generall seem to be getting a good improvement from this

Definitely a good start here.
