How to win as wukong? Just rune and mastery for as much flat armor penetration as you possibly can, and get Black cleaver after picking up an armor pen item. 140 armor bruiser giving your team problems? NOPE. SUFFER ALL TEH DAMAGES
Well - Yeah. But then you run up into a 3k HP Mundo/Singed with 80~ armor and massive regeneration and you're like 'Wait a second, you didn't build any armor! ABORT. ABORT. I REGRET EVERYTHING.'

Will Tiamat be getting another buff with this itemization rehaul? I know that you guys have been slowly buffing it for years now, but it's still not worth the item slot cost, due to the low rate of occurance of the splash on champions.

One more question:

Will these new items affect armor pen quints/red runes????

It seems like since you adjust how you calculate flat armor pen vs % armor pen you'd also want to nerf flat armor pen runes to compensate.

It also does damage all at once( or maybe thats just how it is displyed) and the black cleaver shreds based on number of instances of physical damage. I know how on hit works, this new shred on ad dmg is strange and I'm not sure how it would work. After seeing xypherous say that graves 3 shot buckshot adds 3 stacks, I could see renektons W adding 2-3 stacks as well, becuase grave's q deals its damage at once in the same way

LOL.

@Xyph: Any plans for a Haunting Guise upgrade item, or any upgrades for the Tenacity items?

For example Morello's Evil Tome is a great item because it gives me AP and Cooldown Reduction, but when building for someone such as Katarina I don't get any benefit from the Meki Pendant. Sure I can buy the other items used to build Morello's first and save the Meki for last, but it just feels restrictive and some times I find myself buying an item that for the moment gives me no additional benefit.

Thanks for all you do. I'm excited about all the ideas you guys are working on. I appreciate you guys wanting to make changes and not just stay happy with what you have. Heaven knows you could spend all your time trying to make skins and things that make money instead of improving the feel of the game.
I'm trying to get him to respond to the post I made, about not having AP+Armor items.

So, Miss Fortune's ult can now apply AOE armor reduction? That might be really good... I'll try it when it comes out!

I can't recall if it does damage all at once or in instances, in either case, it does proc items 2/3x, and that's all that matters.
