Her winrate's hanging around 43-45%, and she doesn't have any support synergy over 50% win rate right now in any bracket. (Meaning she loses more than she wins no matter what the support is)

The problem:

I believe the biggest weakest about Tristana is her midgame.
Unlike other AD carries who carry their team midgame, Tristana needs to be carried by her teammates instead.

The thing about her midgame is that in teamfights, she simply can't jump in to fight, and her autoattack damage isn't good enough yet. E active is a very weak DoT. So, all she has is her autos and her ult in a midgame fight, which is rather mediocre.

The problem with an ordinary buff.

Tristana is in an awkward place to buff.
If you buff her base damage, her early game will be nearly unstoppable with an hyperaggressive support.
If you buff her utility, her already godlike lategame will just become more godlike.

The solution:

As of right now, most of her early game burst comes from her jump.
What I propose is switching the damage source from her W to her E.

1. Reduce W's damage (hell, make it 0 for all I care), but keep the utility.

2. Make E active an AA modifier; that way, the range scales with level.
3. E active base damage is lowered, but it now scales off AD.
4. Half of total damage of E active is frontloaded in the first tick, rest are distributed over 4 seconds.
5. E passive can be toggled.
6. Lower the cooldown on E active as necessary. (16 seconds at all levels currently)
7. E active resets autoattack timer. (Like Sivir W)

Thoughts?

Please bump if you agree. Feel free to disagree, but please use reason if you're going to argue.

When's the last time you have played, or have seen, an AP trist?
Stop saying AP Trist is viable, she isn't.
I sometimes play her in normals, and MR shuts her down too hard early on and she can't teamfight midgame.
