Because Rabaddons was a complete snowballing item that allowed mages to wreck faces whenever they could afford it ?

It gives lower base ap and lowered ability power % increase for like 500 gold cheaper. Not worth it to me.


My guess is that they're overcompensating for the fact DFG now gives +100 AP, so they're nerfing Rabadon's so that DFG doesn't become too strong again.

THere are also several more AP items and a mastery that turns part of your AP into AA damage.

Mr and Armor are both have cost increases and with new dfg and Liandry's Torment everything should be about the same.

Pay attention to variety of AP items available come S3 and the ones that are already available and you'll understand why this post sounds silly.


variety doesn't always mean quality. bruisers have higher base stats across the board, therefor when stats become more expensive and full builds and big ticket items produce lower total stats those base stats will take games over.

FoN was removed.

Magic Resist in general got more expensive.

More good AP items available.

Deathcap needed to be weakened to allow for greater build diversity. Deathcap being core on almost all AP champions (to the point of being a semi-common niche purchase on Ryze) is not a good thing.
