As a Leona player, I cringed.

I'm perfectly fine with her becoming an Ashe arrow, that sounds awesome...... but who will activate her passive?

Amumu now has a 50% chance to dodge minions and monsters.
Annie's E is now a passive.
Karthus now gains 100 armor and MR when below 50 mana.
Garen's basic attacks now apply a DoT dealing 1 damage per second for 20 seconds.
Xin Zhao's passive is automatically applied to the closest enemy champion as he begins casting his ult.
Fiddlestick's passive now applies to all nearby enemies, regardless of vision.
Leona's Zenith blade now has 20000 range.


The only one I'm not sure about is the garen one. Why is that a "nerf"?

Taric's Dazzle now only deals it's maximum damage ...

EDIT: This sounds more like Riot describing a Taric nerf, but I'm totally out of ideas.

Cause it keeps him in combat so his passive won't let him regen.

I feel bad correcting a Rioter.
But:
Garen's passive is turned off by damage TAKEN, not dealt.
And Fiddlesticks' passive already works this way.

That's not how Garen's passive works... Unless it's damaging him...and it counts as though coming from an enemy champion. In which case it's pretty obviously a nerf.
