My name is Renekton, and I dislike towers.

In the end, the choice is up to the designer who made the champion as to where they want this budget to be spent. Personally, I tend to disfavor substantially augmenting tower damage on my own -- Darius's W doesn't grant bonus damage on towers; Zyra's plants don't attack towers and die in 1 hit to them; Thresh's E passive doesn't proc on towers.
You can always add the penalty onto it, "does X% reduced damage to tower"

Consistency WHERE!?
more red posts explaining this WHERE!?

When you say "Champions have finite power budgets"...Do you just take the designer and put them in a clear box and filled with champion money and turn on the leaf blower? Everything they can grab in 2 minutes is how much budget each champion gets.

Pls don't make them nerf Ren just so he can hit towers faster.

I'm shocked that you didn't put here the King of Tower Destroyers.

Rengar as his fifth skill used can Double Q (becoming the 5th and then refreshed for ferocity) and he eats towers like they where made out of licorice.

Seriously. How is he not on your post OP?

Zac, Elise, and Thresh must have had the Russian oil baron power budget while Gangplank and Olaf are on the welfare/minimum wage equivalent power budget.

Darius' W does deal more damage to towers. It's not much, but it does.

Trundle also bites towers for bonus damage.

Check the date.

This thread existed before Rengar did.
