Why the hell should non mages actually benefit from this item?

Should just make it like "Augment Death" - that would solve all problems.

You mean increase the damage dealt by abilities by a % over X seconds?

Still does not solve the Teemo craziness, but its very good thinking

The suggestion isn't meant to stop Teemo crazyness. It's meant for the urgots/yoricks/malphites who build this item.

Exactly. That way all mages get to use it and not ones with long lasting dot skills.

TBH, in another thread I was defending Teemo and other dot users, then I realized DoTs don't do half damage anymore -.-

I thought it was fairly obvious that this was the perfect way to balance the item for Teemo/Singed and to a lesser extent Swain (who loves the item, but he's not abusing it nearly as much as Teemo)

But, yeah, the suggestion is to lower the base damage and add an AP ratio so Yorick/Urgot can't make better use of it than mages (which is fairly stupid, tbh)

The problem with that 'easy fix' was mentioned in another thread - skills only have one 'type' tag, so teemo's shrooms count as AoEs, not DoTs. I think there may be a few more fringe cases like that as well.

They just need to change the way it works with dots. It should only apply BFT on the first damage and not the subsequent ticks.
