I am backing up razor345. I read from riot that it has been changed to true damage after it was easily tanked with a beefy amount of armour. You still can tank it with more life but alot less efficiently.

Last time I checked it was still physical, but Riot nerfed damage and added %-based armour penetration so tanks cannot tank it as easily as before.

this, it does physical damage with a % armor penetration. that's why you see tanks still taking a good chunk of damage per shot (health pools sometimes makes it look like less).

It is still physical but they have 20% armor pen. 20% is a lot but that 250 armor Rammus is still gonna have +200 armor equivalent.. They also do less damage since that was added, so their total damage is only larger for people with armor too.
