You'll manage. Bruisers kill assassins who aren't slippery. That's kind of a core-tenet of the world.

The problem I have with this is there are several non-slippery characters that are marked as assassins. For instance, Talon. He has a gap closer with has a SUPER short duration silence, his burst with a reasonable slow/dot, then his ultra which he can escape with. If he has not killed his target (and even if he has), he now has no escape until his ult resets.

The problem between bruisers vs assassins and assassins in team fights is that assassins without good escapes will have the possibly of failing their attack and either not having an escape or wasting all their attacks and not killing their target and being unable to try again.

@Xypherous Garen is good to kill the squishi targets now with the new changes of brutalizer he will be able to do that again? or he will be only good to do some damage when the enemies have armor?

hello im leximass i've been a fellow league player now for a while. And a big thing i always disagreed with was the spell vamp/ lifesteal items. why is it ap champions only can have 15% spell vamp top but a ADC champion can have upto 70-90% life steal it really makes the game uneven and it would be great to ether higher the spell vamp cap or lower the life steal percentage cap. just to make things fair. thank you


Most ADCs will max out their lifesteal in the 20 percent range from having 1 BT+ dorans.

If you want to know why spell vamp is limited like it is, all you need to do is go back and watch double WotA games from eariler in S2. Vlad+Kennen comps were incredibly strong because of the double spell vamp bonus and their AoE damage.

Is the show over?
Or do we get to see another item?

Pantheon will be restored to his former glory.

Muhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

*hides so Xypherous can continue his awesomeness*


I'm afraid, he won't. Lee Sin, Darius, Riven do more damage, have batter utility, are more tanky than Pantheon no matter what items you buy or how magic penetration will work.
They just have better spells and base stats, you can't balance that with global changes.

Also, are you removing "free" movement speed increases from certain items, such as Phantom Dancer? For ADC it is currently the best offensive and defensive item in the game, considering it gives them MS as well as AS/Crit.


90% of gap closers have a longer range than ADC auto-attacks.

So I hope it's not too much to ask but could you tell us which items were removed completely from the game?


It was stated eariler that Force of Nature is getting removed from the game. Not sure what else is though.
