This change would make it completely mandatory, 100% of the time.

I just think thornmail shouldn't return RANGED damage.

Think about it. Makes no sense.

Nothing wrong with 60%. Wouldn't a frozen heart leave you with atleast that + the slow?


that's exactly what i'm talking about. armor is just going to reduce it anyhow. people are still going to die with it.

no, but it could at least block.

the only problem is with ranged people is there are too many that go dps so we'd need another way to handle that


just as it doesn't make sense to have return damage on thornmail to ranged characters.. it also doesn't make sense that a Phanton Dancer or Black Axe gives bonus damage to Ashe's Arrows.


what we really need are items that are segregated, example: Black Axe (Melee) range requirement. where you dont get the damage bonus unless you are attacking from melee range OR just make it so that only melee characters can even equip such a thing.

basically do it like they do in RPG's..

Ranged can only get ranged stuff and melee can only get melee stuff and mages can only get mage stuff.
that is the only way you could balance such a thing.. because then we can GOVERN the dps ranged units from having it too good of one kind of thing as a melee might.
