So does this mean you're available?

Also, I'm extremely excited to see the new and altered items you have in store.

make it the only gp10, and then boost its gold gain from 5 / 10 to 10/10 or 15/10

Contrast, Philosopher's stone - which helps you gain advantage passively but exposes a weakness in your build - the lack of any health or Sightstone, which gives you a temporary advantage (vision) and permanent utility (more vision) but you're not getting stronger versus the opponent.
Makes sense, what will be taking its place on the Randuins build path?

Unique Passive - Refresh (Ward) : Starts with 4 charges and refills each time you stop by your shop.
Unique Active - Ghost Ward: Consumes a charge to place an invisible ward that reveals the surrounding area for 3 minutes. You may have a maximum of 2 wards from this item at once.

Hey Xypherous,
I'm curious why this active had to be unique? It seems to me, that since it consumes an item slot, and doesn't enable more wards to be carried than regular wards, that it wouldn't be abusive.

A simple ruby crystal. You'll probably get the other components first.

We didn't want to push Supports into feeling like they now had to build multiple Sight Stones with their income. We'd rather you go buy fun items that you cared about. We've tuned the numbers to be what we considered the minimum number of wards to cover the total area that teams actually care about at any given time.

Why does it have such high winrates in the lolking chart then? Statistics cant be wrong

Locket of the Iron Solari is getting slightly better in Season 3 - while it loses a bit from the Heart of Gold removal, it has gained CDR and a lot more health than before at roughly the same cost as before.

It's also not saddled to Emblem of Valor, otherwise known as: "Why do you hate me and force me to build an irrelevant item to me - You are so hard to build because whenever I build you, it is the wrong time."
Oh yeah, forgot Locket existed because my HoG always builds towards Randuin's, Aegis is good thought, and i build it often, dunno why i forgot about it

But it's really nice to hear that Locket is getting some love, hope Sunfire cape does as well, and hope we get at least 1 more item

btw, lol'd at the Emblem comment, that might be another one of the reasons i never buy Locket

Xypherous, there is something I don't quite understand about your stance on Ionic Spark. If Ionic Spark's 4-hit-proc is such a harsh condition for damage and needs to be fixed for it to be, you could say viable, why is the second passive of TF left untouched? His Stacked Deck is pretty much the Sword of the Divine with nerfed values on attack speed with a more reliable proc (that has a ratio).

I don't know if you remember, but part of what made people mad about the SotD's removal was that it was a fun way to use the 4th strike on AD TF proc-d both passives. When Ionic Spark was introduced to SR, the double-proc combo returned with force, but not with the same feeling as it used to be.

I must say it has been a while since I played an AD/AS TF, yet I still remember the good old days and this build pattern will be greatly missed...

I really would love to see what is your opinion on TF's second passive.


On another note :

Let's hope that the replacement for Ionic Spark will make as much, if not more, sparks for Volibear's sake, I'll be disappointed if not. We want them sparks everywhere :3

I'd honestly like to think he's trolling and not making ridiculous decisions.

Thank you for taking the time to talk with us.

How does hybrid itemization look now? I love kayle, akali, jax, and even hybrid fizz but i find the choices lacking.
