On side note, with these new items there will be many cases of champion x getting overpowered with item y. So please keep an eye on this.
EDIT: Ninja'd by Nome.

BFG is getting a significant nerf next patch. It's known to be overpowered, and that was done intentionally to fully realize the ramifications

Nome, since AD is now cheaper, why didn't P. Blade get a bump in its AD? Is it because LS is now effectively more expensive, so it balances out?

With a side-dish of AD champs often being "good enough" already?

I'm rather worried about Wraith collar myself.

I and some other guys got together on the PBE, and the guy who got Wrath collar stood on the bot lane speed shrine, well inside the fog of war, and when he activated it, the wraiths went halfway across the map and hit the bots coming out of their spawn.

That item has an absolutely ludicrous range, and the wraiths don't even need vision to acquire targets.


Another thing. Are you planning to change Prospectors items at all, or are you fine leaving them as is?

Prospector's Ring has 40 AP and 10 mana regeneration. Not worried about Wraith Collar, because it's 2 minute cooldown right now.

You're leaving SOTD in...? Please review this? This is the most OP item in the history of LoL...

Am I right in assuming all of the new costs will translate over to Dom as well? If so, this kind of changes the stuff I wrote in your kitae/entropy thread (though not entirely).

On the ring - Any possiblity of taking away a little MP5 and a little AP and giving a little CDR?

30 AP, 5 mp5, 5% cdr?

I love getting the sword on ADs, and I hate the ring on APs. The change didn't make me feel much better about it. Still yucky, just less so.

Interesting, looks like Dominion is getting some needed refreshments. Thanks Nome and the rest of the team.

Is it? I main lux and Liandry's lament seems like it would be better - especially when poking. But of course I'm just speculating.

I don't like Blackfire Torch. By the stats it gives I feel this item will always be great on Teemo, and that little guy is terrorizing me enough as it is. (I really do feel Teemo players have fun at other peoples expense)

If it stays in the game, can we please get a safer way of stealth detection (or possibly just shroom detection)? I like the idea of an Oracle's Extract that is not lost upon death. Constantly walking into shrooms is what I find to be the most annoying thing in dominion at the moment.

Truesight buff from the speedshrines?
