There is a decent chance this may be a 4.8k or 3150 simply because she is a tank. I've noticed in general support/tanks are often less than AP/AD carries (yes, I know Trundle is 4.8k, but Karma has been the only 3150 champ since Urgot) as fewer people will want them, tanks/support are team champs, not selfish ones, so fewer people are interested.

I'm not particularly looking forward to this champ as this is the first tank being released in a long time and I know for sure there will be a bunch of instalock Leonas who don't build her to tank despite your team depending on your tank build and will then come here to spam threads about how Leona can't carry for **** and how they wasted their IP. But the tank player in me is excited to see a new face for once.
^Everything this man said and more! ^_^ The tank within is highly interested for this champ. Now then, to talk a friend into playing Jar while I play her. =D

It means that there are folks that have all the runes they need, and are only stacking IP, Ive seen videos from people who play competitive and have over 18K IP. Now these folks have all the runes they need and are only stacking IP very,very fast. Therefore get use to see more champs @ 6300 from now on, since the game has been out long enough to allow people to catch up.

Remember this is a Free Game, but before a game, is a business, and they need to make some bucks somehow. Therefore I'm not saying they'll NEVER release another 3150 champ like in the good old days, but get use to see them less and less and don't be surprise if 4800K IP cost is the new 3150 IP like it used to be.
Not everyone is in that position, and if they are, and want to spend it on something, 6300 IP every 2 weeks is not going to stem their IP generation.

6300 IP is just a very good incentive to purchase the champ with RP. Think of it as a method to secure an impulse purchase, especially since they add hype to the champion prior to release and offer skin bundles during the initial release.

Theres one every day, let alone the first. I get mad every time i see an ap cho let alone an ap Amumu, And if i see an ap leona /wrist. Seriously it's even worse that they wait until10 seconds left in the select screen to tell you they're ap which is 9 out of 9 times

Cho'Gath is listed as a Fighter Melee /Mage./

He has ridiculously good AP Ratios on all of his abilities and they did a recent adjustment to encourage this type of build instead of the "tank" build everyone tried to impose on him.

Cho.
Is.
Not.
A.
Tank.

People should assume he's AP not a tank. Because he is not a tank. He's just beefy.

Lets hope they don't change their mind!
I got 12k or 13k ip..But I still need to buy a tank rune page as well as another rune page slot. Too bad I didn't get that free 3rd rune page like some people got a long time ago. Too noob!
