Resolute Smite [ Q ] - Now deals 80/125/170/215/260 (+0.5*AP) (down from 80/135/190/245/300 (+0.6*AP))
•Resolute Smite [ Q ] - Movement speed now lasts for 2 seconds (down from 2.5)

•Resolute Smite [ Q ] - now always costs 60 mana ( changed from 60/65/70/75/80 Mana)
•Resolute Smite [ Q ] - Now has a cooldown of 7/6.5/6/5.5/5 Seconds (instead of always 7)


So can you tell me why you nerfed Galio's Q? Galio was already lacking in the damage area later in the game, and the duration of his slow was faaaaaar from overpowering, not to mention how easy the thing is to dodge.

Later in the game when Galio has high amounts of CDR, the CD buff will hardly be noticeable. It's the same thing with the mana buff too. It's better for the laning phase, but honestly, it's not like 20 mana made him OOM that much faster and pretty much any Galio builds Chalice.

His ult is also on such a high CD early in the game for whatever reason, it gets cancelled by so many things...

If anything Galio need some more buffs... not nerfs to his damage and CC...

It's not that big of a buff considering Athene's is core on him.

Galio's problem was that it was hard for him to harass and farm with his q at the same time. Having more q's to cast will help IMO. Also lategame, his burst isn't really noticeable compared to most ap champs so having a slow more often will help him more.

The problem is that outside of his ult, Resolute Smite is Galio's sole means of reliable damage. The wind trail, even when you level it up, just doesn't provide the same kind of power. Which means even though they gave Galio some love in terms of cooldowns and mana costs, the offset is that now he won't be able to clear waves as effectively, or deal damage to his enemies. Both base damage and scaling was hit too.

Galio needs buffs. Not this.

He already had a slow, they reduced it; the fact that they buffed his cooldown is nice, but the damage reduction on his only 'damaging' move does hurt.

late/mid game hes more used for his ult not the Q, 2 seconds off on max level Q isnt 2 seconds when most build cdr, its closer to 1.3

galio never had mana issues with a grail rush, all in all its a nerf
