Can we add a 2 second Transform time for Nid, Jayce, and now Elise?

I know I'm going to get blind downvoted here but it's annoying as **** how with the addition of Elise we are going to have three champs that will be able to transform at any point when their ults are off CD. I would rather play Nid with the thought process of do I transform into cougar and kill or stay in human and poke.

Nid and Jayce are extremely annoying to chase/run away from because they are able to swap forms instantly. Following this pattern Elise is going to be the exact same.

Look at Lone Druid, what doesn't make him extremely broken is that he doesn't go into his tanky bear/squishy ranged form at will. He actually needs to stand there for a second or two to transform. Sure he has the added bonus of having 12 items thanks to his bear but it adds a little depth to a champion.

Jayce being able to harrass like a ***** at range then instantly smacking you away with the hammer is stupid. He needs to at least be punished for pressing R. It shouldn't be a HEY LET'S USE ALL 6 OF MY SPELLS AT ONCE.

I don't get it, I think the transformation time's fine. I haven't had any issues with chasing Jayce or Nidalee.

Adding any cast time to a transformation would completely destroy their viability.

Is her ult a toggle/swap thing? or is it like Shy's on a long CD

Especially Jayce since you need to combo fast as he has no real ult. Even then sometimes the CD on transform can **** you over

Not only is any time a terrible idea but 2 seconds? That would be awful, there are very few spells in the game that have that long a casting time.

The balance of their transform kits is a small lockout time on transforming back on top of the effect they get on transform not being very ult like and instead being on par with a normal ability.

The benefit is obviously the extra set of skills they can toggle access to.

Generally this would make them better in long drawn out fights rather then hard commit fights (where most other champions ults have a large effect). I expect Spider Queen to not be very different in this regard.
