Holy mother of God imagine this on a Nasus

Too bad cleave kills don't add to nasus' Q damage (unless changed in S3). Sion on the other hand would love this item.

Found this on the LoLWiki:

Parrrley - Every unit killed by Tiamat's splash damage will grant Parrrley's bonus gold and refund mana.

My question again too:

Can you have the Passive and the Active going at the same time?

I'm having the same problem.

I echo the suggestion of editing post 29 with a link to post 31 and a brief explanation for players (I had to go to your last post, then scroll backwards through them once I got to post 29).

I'll be honest, I'm liking the idea of Tiamat Talon. His E placing him directly on top of his enemies means he gets another 1.0 ratio added to his combo from the active.

Cleave means split. Tiamat deals split attacks. Tiamat cleaves.

I don't get it.

Is Tiamat going to be an item that can be built by junglers to increase clear speed by having an easy-access build path?
Or is the reduced emphasis on AoE clearing in the new jungle going to make it undesirable in the jungle for single target champs?

The only characters that swap between melee and ranged forms are Elise / Jayce / Kayle / Nidalee.

If you're in a ranged form, Tiamat's active and passive will not work. This applies to Jayce/Nidalee/Elise/Kayle/X.
Xypherous, you wouldn't happen to be hinting at anything with that "X" in there, would you?

Is this a case of sacrificing the awesome nailbiting lifesteal-tanking of carries in close fights for the sake of balance reasons, or is that very gameplay something considered crappy to be on the other side of?
Lifesteal is a weird statistic. That nailbiting lifesteal-tanking is fun up until the point where the carry can just sit there and autoattack you and gain health while doing no action.

There's this magical line that you cross from 'this is awesome and intense'' to 'I'm just going to stand here and drain-tank off of you because my LS is higher than your sustained damage.'

We're trying to find the right point such that we mostly get the nail-biting moments and not the boring 'Well, Jax/Warwick/Draven are just going to sit on my face and gain health because their sustained vamp is higher than my sustained damage.'
