Q - Bouncing Blade
W - uh.. forget the name, but it buffed your next ability (Made Bouncing Blade deal same dmg to all instead of diminishing returns, made you take less dmg after Shunpo)
E - Shunpo
R - ...Death Lotus? Not 100% on the name, but same ult.
Passive was the same I believe as well.

She's got all the same abilities except now instead of her steroid if you will, she does a little aoe spin.

I think she also had a scaling for AD as well as AP on her abilities

Passive: Pretty much the same, but it also gave +25 gold for every champion kill, so you snowballed harder.
Q: Didn't apply the mark, but otherwise pretty much the same.
W: Completely different ability called "Killer Instincts". When activated, your next ability would be stronger: Q did full damage to every enemy hit and applied healing reduction, while E would give damage reduction for 3 seconds. Also passively added damage to all basic attacks and abilities.
E: The damage reduction only applied if you used your W first, but otherwise it was the same effect.
R: Same ability, but with more damage.

Overall, the main changes was that her W became another damage ability and its damage reduction became a part of her E. Also, damage tweaks.

She honestly wasn't THAT different - Still mostly spin to win, and very devastating if teams failed to CC her.
