So are they changing how aura's work in S3? Now if two people have an Aegis they get their own aura AND the aura from the other player. I assume this won't be the case anymore.

Gonna break the trend here and mention something other than the armor pen.
What's the deal with Force of Nature? It's been a standard item of mine for most of my tanky melee dps, to tank through more burst and help against being kited. The few MR items being introduced in this patch don't seem to be oriented towards champions that I play, Riven, Renekton, Rengar, Wukong, Darius, etc. Characters like Riven and Renekton seem to be hit even harder, as Banshee's is less cost effective when you don't need mana. What changes, if any, can I expect to see coming to help ad bruisers?

Could Statikk Shiv scale off of something at least? Ionic Spark deals 125 damage (25 more than Statikk Shiv), and the Ionic Spark is proc'd more often than the Statikk Shiv is (from what I've experienced, the Statikk Shiv procs at around 5 attacks even when moving). Allowing the damage to critically strike is decent, and the item now provides a little bit of crit chance and move speed (which is nice, not to be mistaken), but it offers less AS than the Ionic Spark with a longer time to build up a charge for the passive, having the Shiv's passive scale off of something (AD or AS come to mind first) would be a well appreciated improvement.

Unfortunately, they said that the Ionic Spark was only a niche item and only a few champs benefited from it (which I strongly disagree with), though they aren't really removing it completely. The new item Statikk Shiv has the same chain lightning passive, although nerfed with having a longer time to build up the charge for the effect and less damage from said effect, though they are allowing it to critically strike.

Would have been nice if they noted what they changed, because honestly I don't have the whole item shop stats memorized.
