Meanwhile, she has similar amounts of utility (traps that give sight, team heals and attack speed buffs) but her most recent nerf was just taking away her free defensive stats while her damage and mobility remained the same.
Lux is much safer than nidalee imo; her wave-clear is ranged aoe. Nidalee must go cougar form to wave clear effectively. Yes Nid has more mobility because of cougar form in addition to her passive. However I don't think comparing Lux's ulti to Nid's spear is at all even.

Also, Nidalee's utility isn't on par with Lux. Okay so you can throw traps all over. They only give vision on placement and when stepped on. When Lux can use a bubble on a shorter cd to give vision/dmg enemies. Nid's heal most the time won't save anyone unless it is a last tick of ignite type of thing. Lux's shield is way nicer as a team orientated skill. Lux has the ability to catch someone out and 100 to 0 them if they aren't a tank. Nid spear is pretty damn strong but its a zoning skill end game. Neither skill will one shot someone unless your seriously fed and they are very behind. Ap nid's "end-game" kit is only that spear. You rarely will jump into a team fight cougar form.

Well I cant complain about these Volibear nerfs... At least they left his frenzy and passive alone for now...

Karma can get buffed now? That's nice. At least the rework accomplished something.

Why are you buffing Nami's one good ability instead of the ones that actually suck?

Lux & Kayle got the major nerf guillotine...

... almost makes playing Kassadin not worthwhile against Lux anymore, it'll be too easy with her being slowed like this & on cooldown...

Nah... I'll enjoy it, she'll be an even easier sitting duck now!



(in all seriousness, I'd say both got over-nerfed)
