    If they nerf Kass's ranged spell AP ratios instead of bases, that will be a great mini-rework alongside those W changes. Otherwise he will just keep sniping people and never actually need to auto them for W anyways.

  • #123 ZingsBlade

    Kassadin top seems like its going to be introduced, as an AP bruiser. The base dmg on his W is insane, and scaling makes it scale into late game so well. Introducing kassadin top seems really strong since alot of strong top laners are casters, and that silence makes him that much better in top. His E makes landing autos easy,ur silence makes it impossible for them trade back, and ur ult is amazing for avoiding ur enemy from trading after ur Q+E+W+AA combo. The mana sustain he gets is insane, if u max W 120 mana regened per auto when attacking champions. That makes stacking ur ult so much easier, and takes out Seraphs as a essential item on him, which can be replaced with something more offensive or defensive. Like I said b4 "AP bruiser", since the fact that you need to get into auto attack range to deal alot of ur dmg, which would require you to become abit tanky for teamfights. 

  • #120 dnagemo

    That spirit visage nerf was well deserved ... Way too cost efficent and useful. 

  • #116 Xyltin

    lvl 6 Kassadin: ~570 + 3.4 AP burst with Q -> R -> AA -> W -> E

    Don't forget that every following AA still does more dmg (+0.05 higher AP than before).

    The biggest buff is that it is an hit modifier, and so it gives him an AA reset, granting him an AA with 90 +0.4 extra dmg and 180 +0.8

    A lot of burst lvl 6 champs (Syndra and co) get around 600-700 burst dmg out if they hit everything (skill shots), but only have around 2.5-3.0 AP ratio.

    Kassadins new AP ratios are the real broken thing. 0.4 on every AA without any limitation and 0.8 with the active.

    That's why I said that they should change the following things:
    - Q back to 180-200 dmg maxed
    - W 20-60 + 0.25 AP down from 30-90 + 0.4, but active has triple dmg instead of double dmg (same base dmg but 0.05 lower AP ratio).
    - Base AD reduced to 52 + 3.5 from 52.3 + 3.9

    He'll be bad because his W active only works once now. He needed it for mana in laning phase.

  • #114 Glenhimself

    BIRDY LOVE! 

  • #113 Itachi

    I hope Kassadin will still be competitive after these nerfs. He is my absolute favorite champion and it would make me sad if he ends up like Diana or something.

     

    Edit: nevermind he will be terrible

    that 0,8 ratio is only for one attack right?

    Oh, my mistake. He is going to be unplayable.

  • #96 aguyyouknow

    Hopefully, Riot will fix the enormous Kassadin bug that now exists where his W never works again if he dies O.o

    Oh so that's how it was triggering! It happened to me and at first I thought it was because I was at full mana (Similar to the passive from Xerath's rework, where it wouldn't restore mana if it would put you above maximum)

  • #106 aguyyouknow

    Nope, you die, it disappears forever. Kinda like that Gragas bug from a little while ago >.>

    Does it happen every time or just sometimes? Do I have to stop playing Kassadin if I want to win?

  • #94 iP4thy

  • #90 lionspawN7

    SV nerf is a buff to Ryze. He finally has a good MR item that doesnt put him over CDR cap now. 

  • #91 BlazingSalvo

    Not really a "buff" - you have 10 less CDR if you rush Visage first. Sure you aren't capped with Frozen Heart, but it didn't get any cheaper anyway so you don't get anything out of it.

    Plus this makes the Gauntlet Build weaker (IBG is more mana and more AP than frozen heart - optimal for damage) - now with IBG you only have 30% cdr.

  • #95 TehMunchster

    Utility Tree>? And Offensive Tree? That gives 10% CDR if you go 9/0/21 and some nice AP (that you don't really need but why the heck not?).
