Bad AP ratios are meant so mages don't become carries.

Kennen is a good example of a casting intensive champion who genuinely does have absolutely awful AP ratios. That is why you don't see many people playing kennen; his abilities are good, but he is hard to build for, well, anything, since it is tough to really raise his damage by much.


Hence why Kennen's items are utility, even though they do provide a good amount of AP, his core is Rylais and Zhonyas, and after that Magic penetration is boss.

They improved only very slightly. He'll do a few dozen more damage with Rylai's and Zhonya's.

So does Mundo. Burning Agony barely does ANY damage when I get 5 Archangel's. : /


Mundos AP ratios are where he pleases them to be.

Rylai's + Zhonya's (assuming no other AP from runes, masteries, or other items) gives you 250 AP.

Ratios:
.66 on Shuriken - 165, 70% of base damage
.45 on Surge Active - 112.5, 60% of base damage
.55 on Rush - 137.5, 56% of base damage
.33 per Bolt on Maelstrom - 82, 40% of base damage

But considering that Maelstrom hits 15 times, Shuriken has a super-low cooldown, and Surge/Rush hit multiple targets, this is much more than "Dozens".

His ratios are relatively bad, but they make up for it with low cooldowns and AOE damage. Not everyone can be Morgana with a .9, 1, and 2 ratio on damaging spells. He does have 4 full damaging spells though, a feat that most mages cannot boast.
