It's currently mothballed as we wait for art resources (there are other reworks that are much higher on the list in terms of art). Scruffy himself can probably talk more about this. Personally I enjoyed jungling the new Darius a LOT in our internal playtests.
What's the forecast on the state of Darius's ulti in this new iteration? Will it be able to fully reset given certain conditions? That is to say, can we expect the core of the champion to remain similar? Or will he have fundamental changes?

ZenonTheStoic,

Any word on Talon?
The guy has a boring kit, niche role, and worst off - his theme has already been done
*Blade assassin? katarina
*AD Caster? Pantheon, Zed, Kha'Zix all do it better
*Anti-Mage? Hello Kassadin

May I ask if there's anything on Mordekaiser?

He's been out of the spotlight since Season 2.
No nerfs, no buffs, no new skins, no picks, no bans, nobody talks about him even in meme form.

Is there anything planned for a character who's faded entirely into obscurity?

i don't know if this is your department specifically, but it was mentioned by a rioter awhile back that ryze already has a model finished for a VU...any news on when we might expect that?

I agree that Talon could really use a rework, but no one is currently working on him.

IIRC, they scrapped that.

I feel like if you did anything to Pantheon it should be rewording of his E tooltip and some Total AD rebalancing on his E scaling. Possibly even make it so its 100% against Monsters so Jungle is a lot more viable in general rather than just being a cheese in LCS.

Pantheon's E currently lists non champion damage first as the default and then says "Double to Champions" compared to every other ability that does the opposite.

PHYSICAL DAMAGE PER STRIKE: 13 / 23 / 33 / 43 / 53 (+ 60% bonus AD)

PHYSICAL DAMAGE PER STRIKE VS CHAMPIONS: 26 / 46 / 66 / 86 / 106 (+ 120% bonus AD)

Also, why is the Execute passive on his E and not his Q? It doesnt apply to his E in any way so why does he have to wait to get until he gets E? I feel like this alone would be a huge buff for Pantheon. Mostly a buff to his early Jungle clear.

Ummm, let's calm down here maybe? Just because Talon is fringe or a niche pick doesn't mean he is bad. I've seen Talon carry games and carried a few myself as him. He might be in need of a bit of love, I'll give you that, but I personally really like his kit and have fun playing him. My personal opinion on this matter of course, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
