NO! D: I love promote... It's a strategic option for pushing or defending one's lane, and the summoner slot can be worth it. Sometimes a slow but subtle victory can be a worthwhile option to consider.

I am guessing the new item will be an aura item similar to Abyssal scepter, or a minion specific item like Wriggles.

- Although both items are decent for pushing a lane they are not nearly as useful for seigeing a tower as promote.

-Out of one's lane, the item will be useless.

-In a lane, it will not be powerful against enemy champions compared to other items.



I know promote is considered a useless spell by some; but we have seen time and time again that just because something isn't meta, does not mean it is valueless. Even if people do not like it personally, promote adds a strategic choice and diversity that no item will be able to fill. I urge riot to reconsider removing promote, as it is beneficial and healthy to the game.

Don't do this to me! How will I split push effectively with AP Xin now?

Yeah, if your champion is manaless then expanded mind was a waste of points. Whatever you put into that skill did absolutely nothing for you. Insight, Recall, and 2x good hands (or 3x good hands and one of the other two skills, whatever) would've at least gotten you *something* for those points.

Im not sure how i feel about all this, i dont want my jax setup to be destroyed. will the tress remain primarily the same with some underused masteries removed, or is it an entire revamp, which will be more or less unrecognizable. cause once again, i dont want my jax setup ruined.
