What does it build out of now, since tear is now cheaper than meki+sapphire?
Is in now just a basic item?
If it isn't a basic item, would that make Seraph's the first T4 upgrade in the game?

The passive is mostly the same, with one key difference: Tear of the Goddess used to trigger on spellcasts; now it triggers when you spend Mana, including through the use of channeled effects. While these two effects are one and the same for most characters, any character that has a channeled effect that costs mana will now be able to use Tears to greater effect. Characters like Anivia and Karthus who were already excellent with Tear of the Goddess now have additional ways to trigger it, while some characters like Singed and Ashe will have a newfound ability to trigger Tear of the Goddess from their toggled abilities, opening up new item paths for those characters.


Tear/Manamune + Brutalizer/Black Cleaver Ashe new meta?

All the Manas, All the Volley Spam. Tons of armor-reducing poke that she can sustain forevers?

It sounds like Sapph+Faerie, like it used to be.

So I'm guessing all of Morello's posturing about a legendary sword that only becomes active after filling it is new manamune upgrade which is probably going to have some mana related passive/active like the new Seraph's Embrace item.

I'm glad to see more utility making it onto archangel's and I really look forward to using this on mages like Swain or Anivia who are already super mana dependent. I also like the fact that more of the MP5 and raw mana was dropped off of the item because most of the numbers there were somewhat excessive (also since the introduction of Athene's if mana regen is your need that seems a more likely choice anyway.)

My question is, since Tear costs 700 now and BW is 860 still, what will the new Archangel's run you? 1000 for the upgrade to 2560 total cost?
