Almost every physical champion in the game has an ability or two that scales with ability power. I.e. Sivir's boomerang, gangplank's heal and ultimate, twitch's expunge, tryndamere's q, and so on.

When I first started playing this lead me to believe most every champion was intended to have the capability to build as ability power or damage and be viable.

This is not the case. Riot did not intend anyone to play ap sivir and perform well. Also hybrid builds utterly fail on almost any champion other than akali and kayle, whose passives warrant it.

Can we please undo this? Change sivirs boomerange to scale off of damage, she deserves it. Make all such physical champ abilities scale off of damage. I'd rather get 2% damage ratio than 100% ap on a champ that gets booed off the team for buying caster gear.

Gangplank could probably stand to go the opposite direction. The only time anyone uses that 250 damage 50% crit they built on him is to lolparrleyandrun!! His heal and ultimate want ap and spell pen. Switch his q back to magic damage, give it an ap ratio, and let the poor pirate get over his identity crisis. We all know his girlfriend is the real physical carry anyways.

Sivir and Gangplank - ok
Yi and Twitch (for example) - No,that would end up in too powerfull attacks.

The idea is if the ability doesn't scale, it can be have a better base effect. This is needed for AD characters because they tend to be lack-luster in the laning phase, bad in mid game, but dominant late game.
