her shield wasn't gutted, the power was just transferred to early game over late game.

honestly, this should make her easier to snowball and an even bigger lane bully than before, while making her a bit more hesitant to dive into an enemy team by herself.

Pretty sure buffing the base of the shield and gutting the ratio isn't a buff.
EDIT: Shen'd.

RIVEN TOO STRONG ZOMG

But serious, dem shields OP. I think it should be changed to AP scaling, like renekton's ult and lee's W.

She needs ONE of them.

When Xypherous talked about her, he said that the Regen was there because she had no sustain, but good Riven play meant you shielded it all. Apparently, they wanted to reward those who managed to get through her shields by letting the damage stick. At the same time, they said it felt good that Riven could time a shield to block damage.


So they nerfed both...?
