im going ap and im going to two shot ppl with just Q... even with tenacity it ends up ticking 5ish times? and thats 1.5 ap ratio between the combined ticks... not to mention its 2.4 ap ratio if they dont get tenacity (maybe itll lose a tick somewhere between start up and end but still you see the point)

going to hold back my vote... lemme know when thers "id love another support but not this one" option

I enjoy an earth element nature type of champion. Her outfit should be covered in leaves and vines.

Comparing two champions with completely different kits is utterly fallacious....

Consider this - While Zilean will do more damage with a double bomb in the lane, the amount of mana it takes to do this is huge. He also has to use all his moves to revolve around this.

Flora only needs to use her roots to harass, the roots will allow her to escape, then she has 2 moves to sustain herself with. Try to constantly harass her while her damaging spell is on CD? Lol! Her passive and her armor and mr gains will deny your damage.... Then she'll sustain it back.

Obviously without specific mana costs and cooldowns it would be hard to tell, but atleast I think i'm judging fairly what she would be able to do. Which is harass like a beast and be an unmovable wall in the lane.

cool idea but imagine if she went AP with an aegis and ran the heal summoner spell. she would give good tenacity, resistances, extremely high heal on her W and a 2 second snare is a morgana dark binding that never misses.
it seems like that would be the #1 support, ever.

It's the combination of the two I'm worried about. AoE 30 tenacity pretty much says that Merc Treads on your Champs would only give you the MR. Note that while it's true, a CC would normally only hit 1-2 people, multiple cc can be thrown out. 30 Tenacity on its own is fine. As an Aura, really really strong. It also takes a lot of danger out of fighting in confined spaces like the Jungle. You're always going to have a distinct advantage with the ult.

The issue I have is that there are many 'Just CC them' Champions, and having them get both Cleanse and Tenacity on a Support would open up a LOT of doors. (Like most people, Trynd comes to mind here. Self-Cleanse + This = Anti CC Sword to the Face)

Also, would it be too much to ask if you'd take a look at my thread? I'd love some opinions.

The only problem I see is, too good. She has EVERYTHING

Heal, Mana give, CC, aoe cleanse and speed buff. Its the best from every single support all in one. Other than being OP, sounds good. Numbers could fix things I guess. But they would have to be low to allow so much utility.

What about cooldown times? That'd help.
I also like Flora better than Fauna.

Pffft! It's all about Merriwether!
