Essence Reaver’s Essence Flare was only used by a few champions and the champs that have no mana like Riven and Renek sacrificed some item stats for no gain.
Now you are going to release this new item with the exact same Essence Flare but now it gives health instead of mana, which basically means now Riven and Renek cannot get punished for this anymore and all champions that will abuse this new item will be more tanky than the Essence Reaver soon to be reverted.
All you guys saying Jax is cancer with Essence Reaver. Now he will build Spear of Shojin, go URF mode and be more tanky than before. GL guys.
