This is just a small quality of life upgrade for Cassy. Put simply, it's rather annoying when you attack someone with your E expecting that you'll get a poison reset and you don't due to a death. Basically if someone on your team besides you gets a killing blow while your E is in the air then your consistent DPS is on cooldown for a few seconds. Considering Cassy's unique role as a consistent damage caster, this problem is analogous to denying any ADC the ability to auto attack for a few seconds after he/she doesn't get a killing blow. Point being that the current mechanism potentially punishes you for participating in a kill.

On to the suggestion... There are two changes that come to mind that would remedy the problem.

The first, and probably the sloppier and more abusable one, is to check for poison on the target both when her E is cast and when it lands. If in either event the target is poisoned the cooldown is reset when the E lands. The reason it's sloppier is that it doesn't directly affect the issue of people dying while her E is in flight. It's also gives her a little bit larger of a window to cast another E at the end of a poison cycle, which introduces balance issues (not that she can't keep people perma-poisoned).

The second, more direct solution is to just reset her E if the target dies while the E is in flight. Of course the target would have to be poisoned at the time of death. This way, Cassy can continue to participate with her full potential instead of being denied a few seconds of E dps after a kill.

Thumbs up and drop a post if you agree. Or if you have feedback of your own post that too.

Second option sounds better, this should definitely be implemented.

I like the second option. It's not like there isn't precedent for moves refreshing their cd when used on a target no longer there.
