Blitz is my most-played champ, and of my three builds Sheen and TF are at the core of all of them. I'm not enough of a number cruncher to know how these changes will affect him. How bad is it?
Trinity Force was the only thing keeping Blitz viable, these nerfs are quite significant, expect to be queue dodged near to the level of Heimerdinger.
The slow is a bigger deal than the damage.
With sheen/tri, it is based on base damage, which tends to be around 80-100 depending on level and champ.
A 20% reduction is only 20 damage, which is hardly enough to be Q dodged.
Not sure why they didn't nerf Lichbane the same way. +100% AP to damage is HUGE for some characters and is one of the reasons that TF rapes people when he gets fed.
So has anyone played Blitz since the patch? Did these nerfs really hurt him, or are they minor?
considering blitz isnt really about the damage....im willing to bet these changes are but a minor inconvenience to him still hooking someone into your team for a free kill.
True, but you could often lay the hurt on people, too with sheen/trinity procs and such.
You still greatly hurt, but to a lesser degree than before.
It's just that you don't overkill anyone now, just enough for a kill. :]

TF is still an amazing item. The nerf didn't take it far enough in my opinion. It still makes straight up night and day differences when compared with equally expensive items.
Blitz should not be made to get kills, but to set them up. You're better off getting support items than items like sheen in premades. And in solo queue, blitz is bad.
