She looks really strong.. any support with a stun is already pretty good, and with her W being able to both harass and heal... shes going to be a monster. Not to mention, if you E your teammates they slow on hit and they get a movespeed buff for 1.25 seconds from her passive.. and that ult is ridiculous lol.

Is Nami missing particles? The water magic keeping her above ground looks kind of half done.

I find her good at what she does. But, It strange I can't use E on ennemy but only for allies.

I like everything about her tho. Strong ratio for her Q.


EDIT : Btw, that ult, HOLY ****, tsunami

I think she's too powerful if anything.
She's basically a better janna.

my early assessment: As an support, she excels across the board, a decent heal, great amount of cc, great initiation and disengage

My main concern: her Q mana cost for the damage output is too low....a prime example of comparison is Janna Tornado. It serves as a disengage just like Nami...Nami gets a longer stun for less mana and high base damage compared to Janna. I understand Nami Q is a skillshot thats harder to predict and act than Janna's tornado - but if you take into account equal skill, the damage output for the mana cost for Nami is superior. Reason as to why I state this issue is with her max base mana, she can dish out 5 Qs. Compare this to Janna's Q (Tornado), Janna can only dish out 3Q. Both champions have same base mana regen.

My own personal suggestion to the problem with 4 options (preferences in given order):

1) Increase mana cost of Q to probably 70 or 75.
2) Decrease base mana regen by slightly. (Can't get a hold of a number that would be considered balanced)
3) Decrease the stun of the Q to 1.0 second (Seems adequate number)
4) Decrease base damage on the Q. (Can't get a hodl of a number that would be considered balanced)

**All stat comparison im using for Nami is speculative that was released on Surrenderat20.com. Janna stats used on LolWiki**

Overall: great support, kit flows relatively well, possibility to be abused as a mage depending on Q is approached. [Similar case to Lulu].

**Dunno why im being downvoted for the Q. If I can play 5 games where i land 3 or 4 out of my 5 Qs on an enemy adc, ontop of that, I'm able to do more damage than Janna Tornado uncharged, that is a real concern. You might play her as Support but not everyone will. Hence why I feel testing her for things beyond her support capability; testing Nami as a mage caster in mid lane is a good experiment between determining how can a player can abuse the kit [something as PBE tester should evaluate ontop of her support role]. A prime example of when PBE failed to look at Lulu resulted in players in the regular client to abuse her Glitterlance. I myself dont want to go through that again, nor I hope you dont either.

*** I retried her as a defensively AP mage (140AP: doran ring, tier 3 boots, liandry's lament, frozen fist) alone with just assistance from new masteries page [no runes nor blue buff, baron buff and red buff] I could solo dragon. Q-E-W (to heal), repeat until dragon died. [I killed it but with around 100-200 health remaining. I know this isnt optimal but I dunno any one support can take a dragon on his or her own even building AP]. This is another serious problem that Nami AP ratio or base damage on the Q should be of a concern. [I realize you acknowledge that ap ratio might be tweaked.]

Is W's high mana cost due to wanting clutch heals as opposed to Soraka heals? It feels like a bit of an inefficient skill, unless Riot is trying to get people to build supports with a bit of AP due to low bases.

I was wondering if the 3 sharks in her joke will appear like in her skills, like in the ult surfing. Just wondering because they only appear in her joke.

I was wondering if the 3 sharks will appear more other than the joke. I like them and wish thy appeared more. It would be neat to see them ride the wave in her ult.

She's got very nice ratios and will do well mid. I think her damage is a bit high for the CC she brings
