I know we're nerfing the active in a coming patch, because it's too good for ranged champion kiting.
Now just change Iceborn and SoTLE and we are right on track.

Howso?

Unique: Gain +40% attack speed and +20% movement speed for 6 seconds (4 seconds for ranged champions) - 45 second cooldown.

Something like this that melee gains more from botrk then ranged how is that worse?

With the exception of Statikk Shiv, every on-hit item accessible to ranged ADC that was introduced in S3 will have been nerfed due to abuse by ranged ADC. This includes an item designed for melee junglers and an item designed for tanky casters.

We can reformulate then, I guess:


"Why isn't the active on BotRK melee only?"




Thus, I don't know about the nerfs, but I'm kinda worried nerf would only be a fish when we need to learn fishing

iceborn is half ranged size compared to melee

Ok. But health is not an issue anymore, health was nerfed.

The issue is that if health is countered.


What we have left . Armor and MR. Both of them were nerfed fo S3, since armor pen and magic pen are overall more powerful.



Next patch, the buffs for GA, Spectre Cowl, and price reduction of Randuin and FH are cool tho.

So can you just make it Melee only instead of ALSO nerfing melee champions?
