And sure, it made bruisers easier to kill, but it also obliterated true tanks from the game, which pretty much took a weak role and made it a dead role.
now that isn't fair at all. Aegis is the only item to give mr,armor, and hps making you far tankier againist all dmgs. Aegis was way better than fon unless you had like 4k hps

Fiora can tear people apart now. No longer are there "unkillable" champions for my French assassin.

AD Casters have become viable and powerful.
Tanks have more utility options than before. Tanks weren't good tanks because of resists, they were good tanks because they have devastating effects. If you think sitting there doing no damage and doing nothing special is how you play this game then you got to learn what tanking really is. Items like frozen fist and the plethora of other viable items have helped out a lot of people.
What's funny is I feel the exact opposite as you do. Tanks now have better itemization than before and can actually still do their job while splashing into more damaging items. Sej, for example, has several items that synergize very well with her with this new influx of items.
Sejuani isn't a TANK, not really. Look at her kit. Sej is a bruiser with good initiation, like Maokai or Shen. Simply because a champion is good at initiating doesn't make them a tank, what makes a champion a tank is that they scale best with a mix of health/mr/armor. That's not what Sej scales best on. Champions a la Rammus are kinda boned in the item department, in some really big ways.

The person I was addressing said that it was a good MR option to replace FoN. My point was simply that it is not that replacement. Spirit Visage might be, but not Aegis or its upgrade.

Iceborn Gauntlet Malphite will ensure that no one escapes. It very nearly if not outright breaks him.
