Correct me if I'm wrong but it also does more damage faster?

Its important because a lot of very good Liandry's users (Kayle, Eve) Applies liandry's over and over again with there abilities.

What if the enemy is taking damage from other sources during those three seconds of ticks? I'd rather have the 5% over three seconds if the enemy happens to lose a ton of hp during the seconds the item recalculates itself.

Ok . . . let's use Singed's Poison Trail as an example to demonstrate better

assume Singed only have Liandry (and enemy have 3000 hp)

Old Liandry
+ 60 AP
deals 5% current hp as magic damage over 3 sec

Singed's Poison Trail deals 70 (+30% AP) per sec for 3 sec

0.05(3000) = 150
70 + .3(60) = 88
88(3) = 264
total damage over 3 sec = 414 magic damage

New Liandry
+ 50 AP
deals 2% current hp per sec for 3 sec

damage from Q per sec : 70 + .3(50) = 85
0.02(3000) = 60 ; (3000 - 85 - 60 = 2855) , hp after 1 sec = 2855
0.02(2855) = 57 ; (2855 - 85 - 57 = 2713) , hp after 2 sec = 2713
0.02(2713) = 54 ; (2713 - 85 - 54 = 2574) , hp after 3 sec = 2574

total damage of new Liandry over 3 sec = 3000 - 2574 = 426

So yeah, it's a nerf to high AP champs but a buff to low AP champions

lol I died again

tl;dr: Just build Zhonya's instead. It's strong and excellent for trolling.

You couldn't just say it's 1% better and leave it at that?

No, you have to keep it relative to itself.
It's now 20% better.

Which pretty much buffs tanky AP bruisers and nerfs people who could counter meta. Slightly.
