You don't want anyone buying Sword of the Divine, do you?

Still, no longer restting on assists make it scream for killsteal and other flame-inducing behaviours. I can't possibly see what good can come out of this change.

It means its only going to have its active used to score kills.

no... it will cause flame such as "wtf why did you steal that kill now my sotd will have 60 seconds thx to you gtfo noob"

I really don't understand why it should only lower cd on kills, every other mechanic has assists included.

Not every other mechanic has that included. But I do agree that it's rather annoying at best.

Still...SotD + normal offtank build on darius = passive's stacked, burst damage from crits + W and Ult for the kill...

I see SotD fitting the niche on champions that don't build crit(or shouldn't), but can build a significant amount of damage or synergies well with it. examples would be talon, riven, Olaf, Rengar, Kha'zix, Warwick, Volibear, Jayce etc.
In s2 you saw a lot of top's and jungles building high damage items with crit like I.E(at least in blind/draft and low ranked) when it didn't quite fit the playstyle or role needed. Items like I.E and PD have always been for Adc's who need sustained high damage and build more to obtain a consistent ammount of critical damage, as compared to champions who do most of their damage in a burst and only need it to be consistent for a couple seconds.

Also take note that it also gives 100% AS for 4 seconds which makes it a great tower killer if you decide to use it for that.

There's still problems with it having CDR only for kills, and it being 60 seconds, but it's still an item I plan on getting on a lot of top champions because now I can build tanky dps + SotD instead of glass cannon to tanky high dps.

SotD is a clear choice for AD casters, but by having a minute long CD it just turned in to a second ultimate rather than a long CD item.

Some how I see this as a badly done ghostblade copy that is usable for ranged champions.

It's an AD assassin item, stop building it on your damn carries then complaining that it sucks. It's supposed to, it's bad for anyone who wants to build crit and AS!

It's pretty bad now. I thought the 60% attack speed and extra damage every fourth hit was cool, with the armor pen active (which could have been something else). Old Sword Of The Divine was my favorite.

I wonder how many people actually bought this item after the patch.. with the current stats its not worth it and will be the next tiamat/cloak and dagger but if it had passives like

Sotd cooldown reduced for each autoattack/single target spells or something that would actually make it usable it would be nice
