Having it bottom isn't a terrible idea. If they back off and don't fight you, they're basically just letting you have free farm and build up a big minion wave to assault their point, which can mean a free neutralize for you if you have Promote.


A number of bot laners like gragas, ryze, scarner, simple garrison spell or ez's ult will allow them to quckly clear any big wave of minions. buff will be wasted in this case.

If a bot laner can push bot and capture their tower then you can give him the buff, but there are high chances it will be just wasted.

I think you are overanalyzing it. IMO whoever has the longest range, shortest cd, most reliable poke should get it. IE cass over any melee, corki over sivir, etc


Except that it also provides a shield effect which is great on tanks and melee.

If the enemy team has no hard cc it's just a disaster for them.

Agreed, pokes are best with it, especially single target pokes so you don't accidentally splash it to someone at full hp. The absolute best champ to have it on is a good nidalee, pity they are a dying breed.

Oh, assassins are good with it too. Pokes and assassins.

the crystal is like a fish bait. you wait in the grass, some clueless carry approaches it with curiosity and decides to touch it, then terrible things happen to him.

Its one of the only ways team fights occur imo.

"The second buff allows the champion to passively detonate a lightning blast inflicting 90 (10 x level) magic damage on the champion's autoattacks and damaging spells with a 4 second cooldown."

4s cd with dmg based on level not ap/ad means carry is not necessarily priority #1. In fact, a tank would make more sense to me since carries are focused down in a fight usually or are usually running i.e. not making use of said proc.

Like in SR there is no point giving kills to tanks and making them stronger by giving buff. They are often ignored in tf. A lot of buff options were listed above
