I like Guantlet+Phantom Dancer with Nasus makes him a lot better at chacing, though I don't think I'm as tanky.

It replaces Frozen Heart (which is so much more expensive now) on Ryze, giving him the same mana as the old FH, more damage from his auto, and a way to slow down enemies so he can stick to them better.

Frozen Heart was never worth 3000 gold; regardless of the aura. Even if the armor and mana had not been nerfed, the value of armor has been decreased so much by the penetration changes that it would not be worth getting.

Hurricane-Fist Ash: PermaStun (because toggles now count as skill uses for all kinds of things). I have to agree; the trade-off for aoe damage should negate that extra 50% damage; that is, it should be a 100% proc aoe, or only the slow should be aoe.

BTW, I was joking about Hurricane-Fist; because Fist creates "a field", the field overlaps and an individual wouldn't see a triple slow - they might see triple damage though . . . must test.

You can see where I'm going with this, right? I've recently been using this item on ez as part of my core build, and have been having some scary results. The aoe slow procs on ez's q. with max cdr and armor pen, this is one scary item. It lets ez kite while being extremely safe. And in team fights it is a game changer as it provides an almost perma slow to the entire team alllowing your team to easily pick the enemy apart.



You think that's scary?

Try synergizing it with Hurricane. THAT'S scary.

I've been loving it on Hecarim- he never scaled well on the Zeal portion of Trinity Force, and the AOE is fun to use with Rampage and Spirit of Dread.


Besides you know... gaining movement speed... which gives him damage..

Agreed. Hecarim's old core was Sheen into Glacial followed by Randuins, now there's an item that does aoe damage (more heal from w) and aoe slow (Hecarim lacks aoe slow).

Especially now that the movespeed on Trinity Force got nerfed so hard, you have to go Gauntlet for damage, cc, tankiness, mana, and cdr.
