PBE Taliyah W Cooldown Nerf Hurts Her Midlane Too Much

Surrender at 20
(With the release of patch 8.15 to live on August 1st, we started the new 8.16 PBE cycle.) Previous PBE Cycles in 2018 Below you will find a comprehensive list of new content, balance changes, and whatever else is included in the current PBE cycle!
W - Seismic Shove Cooldown increased from 12 at all ranks to 16/15/14/13/12 Since Taliyah maxes her W last, that cooldown won’t start decreasing until level 14, when she puts a second point into the skill. The only other mage with a basic displacement ability is Syndra, whose _Scatter the Weak_ is an instant cone and can stun afterward if she lands a sphere. This huge cooldown nerf will hurt her laning badly, leaving her vulnerable for a long time if she misses a combo. You said she would be balanced around both roles, but right now she’s so strong as a jungler that she’s barely played mid. Changes like these could reduce her to a troll pick.
