Also, hardly anyone knows how to play/build her anymore.

Her passive is actually fairly synergistic with both her shield (helps save you at low life, and is better with the free AP) and her heal (which heals for a percentage of missing health too). It lets you bait fights with surprising amounts of durability (and damage) when at low health.

Im betting that she will get her rework either right before or right after trundle gets a cool new skin. (see: never in a ****ing million years.)
Well. Since theyve been releasing slow details for awhile now, the rework is imminent. Her Q will now heal and damage without mantra. Her sheild will no longer do damage on mantra, but is an AOE stun, her leash Stuns an enemy, and the boost/slow is being buffed. Oh, and it heals the allie and karma. As well damaging healing whoever goes it through it being enemies/allies. so yeah.

You do realize her rework's almost done? And that she's getting a visual upgrade WITH her kit overhaul? Didn't think a million years would fly by so fast, eh?

i play her daily and in my opinion she is a support for bruisers/ Meeles/ Tanks... not really for the little squishy adc. She is one of the Champs that need a lot of training so you get a feeling when to use her mantra and when to switch from offensive to defensive. But i would suggest, you wait until they are done with the rework, not that i am happy about that but i guess she will be easier to play then.

Actually, I think Urgot is generally surpassing her as the least popular champion at the moment.

But the reason? Despite what you think she "looks like", she is NOT a good support, at least not for bottom lane. She's passable as a midlane support- except who the hell wants a midlane support instead of an AP carry? Basically, she's a rubbish champ and always has been and always will be until Riot remake her.
