ie a mage without assassin-like tendencies (when I say "assassin-like" basically just think elise or to a significantly lesser but by no means insignificant extent lissandra), which would be Syndra on 13/09/2012

http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_champions

Meanwhile there have been two assassin-like mages (elise and to a significantly lesser extent Lissandra), two assassins, two supports, three marksmen, one "pure" fighter, one fighter/melee dps (aatrox, he's hard to classify lel), and one tank/AP fighter.

Then the next champion to be released (Yasuo) is a melee dps and the one after that (unless Ao Shin is delayed) is currently speculated to be either some sort of fighter or some sort of support.

Riot please?

It will most likely be a fighter. Because we can never have to many fighters man.

My Lissandra is NOT an assasin. Just because some people in the LCS rushed DFG doesn't make her an assasin.

Oh, and if you still think shes an assasin, all of her spells are good scaling AoE. 3/4 of them have CC and 2/4 of those are AoE cc. If you ever group up in a teamfight around your ADC, you are all going to regret it. She can't fully burst ADC's without DFG, ignite, hella AP and the ADC has no MR or health. She is played best "assasinating" ADC's but in teamfights, excelling in AoE.

Try to read, I do not list her as an assassin but state that she is a mage with assassin-like tendencies much like elise is.

Take someone like brand or annie.

Then look at lissandra.

Now back to brand/annie.


Realise that lissandra while not a pure assassin, can in fact assassinate people.

Then realise that brand and annie cannot.


SUDDENLY you now understand what I meant by saying "true" mage and "mage with assassin-like tendencies".

Isn't it amazing when you read a post fully?

Lissandra is not an assassin. Lissandra is a mage who emphasizes crowd control over damage. "Mage" is not limited only to characters that are defined purely by having massive damage.

^ This. She can jump in and CC people (in a way that's very, very obvious to see coming unlike most assassins), but her damage on average is no where near bursty enough to consider her an assassin IMO. She's definitely more a utility mage.
