The little bits of mana regen added up. :/

Atleast now it builds into a good item, aka DFG.

All the other items were pretty much super niche other than AuG, which 99% of times you'd get chalice first intead of codex.

I usually don't even buy DFG as it is. I agree though, taking off the mana regen hurts a lot. I can't even use my usual opening in mid with double-faerie charm pots anymore.

Sucked enough when I couldn't start flask faerie charm ward, now an item that granted necessary mana regen on champions like orianna starves you of ~12 mana regen you had before because of chalice + fiendish codex.

I agree with the lament.

We are being bottled into using Chalice, Tear or (god help me) Doran's Rings for mana sustain.

Pretty awful if you ask me.

Yeah, this is kind of an indirect nerf to mana-hungry mids like Orianna and an indirect buff to Champions with low resource costs like Evelynn and Katarina.

It also seems they're trying to force players to build more of Morellonomicon, but maybe that's just me.

Implying anybody even rushed codex or relied on it for mana regen.

It was never used cause it builds into horrible items other than AuG, AuG already has chalice which solves 99% of the mana problems of anybody that picks it.

It is in a better place than it was before, honestly, just by the fact that it now builds into DFG.
