Dude the shaco nerf was the nerf to Armor Pen runes


TOTALY LOGICAL, Shaco was the only champion effected by the rune nerf.

Reducing the range was an unfortunate side effect of fixing the JitB inside walls bug. When we get the tech to fix this better I think we plan to increase the range back up.

Thank you, you just revived my trust. What do you think should be fixed on Shaco to make him balanced? Do you have any plans with his ult to make it more useful? Sorry to bombard you, I just figured you'd be able to answer the questions more thoroughly than anyone else because you created him (which I thank you for).

thats very good too hear, do you happen too have any plans too buff shaco so he can once again be viable, I am not asking him too be easy mode just viable past the 10 minute mark.

Yes. For example.... fixing his ult... so it doesn't steal neutral buffs.... or fixing his ult so it shows items on the clone/neutral buffs on the clone? Or increasing his base health just a wee bit? Or maybe reducing the CD of deceive back to 10s.... did it really need to be increased to 11s? Or maybe increasing backstab damage back to 25%.... once again... didn't see point in reducing it...

Because placing Jitbs in walls was actually a beneficial bug = =""

And 100 range is QUITE a lot. Imagine if they nerfed Vlad's Q by 100 range...


Imagine if that wasn't Vlad's only practical means of doing anything.

Fine I'll be more practical. Ezreal's Q is currently ~1000 or so. Take 200 off that range (20%. Same as JitB nerf). 800 new range... yea... that hurts...
