Hey summoners,
For starters, we plan to make Barrier available across all maps rather than just the Proving Grounds. To ensure it’s balanced it we’ll be increasing its cooldown and reducing its duration. Barrier will require faster reaction time in its new form, but will remain the go-to defensive option against burst damage.

Can you explain the rationale behind this? Even on ARAM, I find that barrier denies too many kills. If ported over to SR, I'm afraid that barrier will at as a get-out-of-jail free card, especially when used with flash. Especially midlane, where it could block damage from burst champions such as LeBlanc and allow people to win fights that they are supposed to lose.

Could you give us a preview of some of the new masteries, feral pony?

For example, I always thought it was intensely unfair that AD champs and 100% free access to lifesteal in the offense tree (with little to no impact on their offense), while AP champions had to give up a lot of damage and spec deep into the utility tree just for 3% Spell vamp.

Is this something that has changed?


Spell vamp is really different to lifesteal though..... you are never really gonna buy more than 1 spell vamp item in game whilst you may well buy two or more lifesteal items....
IMHO spellvamp isnt really similiar to lifestea at all...

Could you give us examples? We were given a few specific juicy details/examples by Xyph and Statikk regarding items and jungle changes, respectively.
