Since all the changes make champions go on/off a lot (Grrrr I quit a while and when I came back my two main champs Twitch and Xin Zhao got nerfed).

I haven't played since Maokai came out.
So are these characters still good? Any significant changes would be appreciated

1. Vladamir
2. Sion
3. Dr. Mundo
4. Zilean
5. Cho Gath

What other champions came out (and what are their roles, I like nukers and dps primarily, but certain FUN supports like Zilean are still good).
Any significant role changing updates for any characters?

Vlad - solid choice, but nothing special
Sion - stun was nurfed, but still a good pick
Dr. Mundo - bad on SR, good on TT
Zilean - Banned a lot on ranked, but at a good spot atm imo.
Cho'Gath - really strong tanky dps atm.

Any suggestions for a new champ then? Preferably with some degree of survivability and nice damage output (or ability to get lots of kills).

- Vlad's passive got hit by a few patches in a row.
- Mundo's ulti got hit a patch or 2 ago.
- ^What second post said about Sion
- Idk about Zilean
- Cho's passive mana got nerfed again. Vorpal got base/AP ratio buff, feast got an AP ratio buff (.5 to .7) with a large nerf on level 2 and 3 base damage. They mighta hit scream's AP ratio a little too.

I wouldn't call that a long time, but I guess a fair bit has changed since then.

I'll just comment on the champs I actively play.
Vlad is still great. Just never build him HP (you shouldn't have been anyways)
Zilean got his ult nerfed (yet again), down to 7 seconds.

If you want one of the new champs, probably Brand fits your style the best. Karma is the only support released recently, got very little attention.

Brand, though I'm not too sure about the survivability, but he's no Veigar (in terms of survivability), but he nukes like a boss.

Xin Zhao is good still.
1. Vlad- Still annoying. Slights nerfs i believe.
2. Sion- Still a boss. Pretty boring IMO.
3. Dr.Mundo- Still going where he pleases.
4. Zilean- Still bringing back the dead.
5. Cho- Still an UU (underused) champ that wrecks.

All of the champs you've mentioned have been nerfed to one degree or another the past few months.

All still quite viable though. A lot of vlads have been making use of hextech revolver buff (lots of spellvamp for cheap) though I can't comment on how spectacularly viable that is.
