on pbe, its getting bumped up to a whopping 345gold price. on dominion, sure it might be okay to buy, but on rift i dont see it being worth it anymore.

yes, it also is getting a slight buff to health and mana regen (health: 120 from 100, mana: 60 from 40)

i dont think 60 health and 60 mana buff is worth the new 120gold increase. makes it that much harder for supports to maintain sustain.

I could handle it if the price was 300 gold, as I usually only need 3 wards before getting Sightstone. But, I couldn't manage the same with 2 wards.

Too much of a price increase for little return.

say you are support, and u snag the +50 gold starting. 525 - 345 = 180. not even enough to get a faerie charm lol. and it definitely wont be worth buying AFTER you go back once/twice, youll be way too far behind. feel like flask will be long forgotten

I'll still get it on supports, but not mids and tops. I guess that was the whole point.

I still feel the flask is pretty worth it when playing top, mid or even adc (Though I rather start with a long sword + 2 pods as an adc tbh) I really don't see junglers getting it due to their sustain, I have seen multiple supports get these but currently Idk if it is worth it for supports but plenty sure it is if you do the math, it's just about how early you can get the flask really.

On supports to start, no. On laners that don't need boots, maybe.

For champs with mana, flask = 4 potions. 4 potions = 140 gold.

Current flask is about 7 potions (140 + 35 + 35 = 215, 10 gold less than 7)
Current flask pays off if you buy it and refill it once.

345 gold is like... 10 potions?
That means going back 3 times to pay it off, assuming you start with it. That puts you pretty far behind in lane unless you don't buy any other potions.
