: Please note there's a distinction here between 'Skarner could do with a VGU someday and we expect we'll do one at some point' versus 'Skarner's got a VGU scheduled' (which is not the case). The former list's pretty large (dozens of champs) the later list pretty short (half a dozen ish).
Damnit, poor choice of wording in the title then. Honestly, it's just good to know that he's no longer going to get low scope GU's that not really tackle the major issues of his kit.
: I can't wait to build Red and Green Build Rhaast: {{item:3071}} {{item:3072}} {{item:3812}} {{item:3065}} {{item:1412}} {{item:3047}}

: Gonna throw a quick correction in, he gets spell vamp, not lifesteal.
Are you sure? Because when I played him I had 50% life steal, as well as 60% physical vamp :^) ({{item:3812}} {{item:3072}} {{item:3065}} try this, it's stupid but glorious)
Ralanr (NA)
: That's Rhaast though, what about the Shadow Assassin form?
If Kayn goes for the Shadow Assassin route he won't have access to Darkin form's Knockup and overall survivability with the innate Life steal Rhaast gets. He'll play more like Zed as he'll suck against tanky opponents but he'll be great at assassinating squishies. He gives up a ton of utility and durability in favor of being able to eliminate high priority targets.

: i have PBE too, i know i've been going for a tanky build myself, not as much raw damage but I'm inclined toward survivability {{item:3748}} {{item:3812}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3742}} {{item:3065}} what i like to rock, but i'd like to experiment with other builds as well like swapping titanic for warrior and visage for edge of night, maybe. more glass build but much higher output
Honestly, I think something like {{item:3074}} {{item:3812}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3065}} and {{item:3742}} seems like the best build, simply because it really taps into his innate affinity for life steal and his abilities already healing him because of his passive. Basically just Aatrox on steroids.
: that's been my conclusion, too i really enjoy rhaast as a character, just so well put together He's the perfect fit for people who like to be a tough as nails Fighter who brawls in the front line. Fun fact; it's ALL % max HP damage. Full build your Q is a 36% max HP damage nuke with a 3 second cd. And R heals you for 40% of the enemy's max HP. Before counting the 43% heal you get off the damage your abilities deal.
: rhaast is so much neater than kayn i wish i could start the game as rhaast
After 5 PBE games. You can get Rhaast around level 5-8ish if you're doing well.

Would be a shame if he had to choose which benefits he gets, right?!
: Soul Hunter Kayn
Why would you ever want to be Shadow Assassin anyways?

: After hearing Rhaast, I have one thing to say to you Riot.
: I thought you were a guy, or I could be confusing you with Tides.
They're basically the same. Both are depraved Vlad mains.
: So Kayn has 12 Abilities?
someone hasn't been paying attention.

: I predict Top, Jungle or Mid, it'll mainly be Comp related, if you take him top lane he's going to be a damn good Fighter in his Darkin form. If you take him Mid you can roam more, kill mages more and be a really good Assassin. If you take him jungle you can chose either, all i know is i'm gonna try him out.
Thing is, you're not gonna be Darkin from level 1.
Bultz (NA)
: So we threw out Aatrox' lore?
It's always been speculated that "Aatrox" is in fact that weapon and the demonic entity holding it is nothing else but a corrupted wielder.
: It's a good time to be a female gamer
You can keep the Shadow assassin, I'll take Rhaast.
inplane (NA)
: People will want to change his R into a Vector Cast spell instead of it being a Double Cast spell.
: Fun top laner at least and I hope.
Doubt it, looks better suited to being a Jungler or potentially a mid laner.
: MM, I see by your summoner icon you have become a fan of the 1000 degree knife experiment videos.
No, it's in preparation to being a Rhaast main.

: Looks good but Id like to have thunderlords on the assassin-guy and cotc on the fighter-guy... hmm

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 27
I'm actually really happy with the proposed Udyr changes, the %Base AD buff on his passive makes for some interesting itemisation choices ({{item:3053}} {{item:3078}} ) and further streamlines his build to be more akin to the Juggernaut norm of AD and HP. Speaking of Juggernaut norms and Udyr's rework. He actually has Magic damage that scales of AD now, which is also pretty interesting. Would that be an avenue worth exploring regarding Mordekaiser as his magic damage is amplified by his base AD as well (that juicy 380% total AD q ratio tho)
: what ad item are you going to buy? witsend is udyr's dream with R, it allows him to clear the jungle easily+deal tons of aoe damage in teamfight the bonus as and mr shred synergise so well while allowing his mage to deal more damage are you going to buy black cleaver+focus on Q? black cleaver is getting a fixed cooldown on stacks so even that is bad beside, they're buffing his Q base damage and nerfing his Q ad ratio to make him build more tank than AD, that would make more sense with a witsend+full tank build than an ad+tank build it doesn't make sense
You're gonna go Tri force and Steraks most likely due to him getting 6% base ad for every stack of his passive.

: I'm not going to argue about whether Riven is busted or not right now because I think Riven and Yasuo both right now are under an intense spotlight of hate for several reasons, mainly due to the event. When you face a Riven and Yasuo every game, it will make you hate them. Perhaps Riven is an issue with it, but I think both have a lot stacked against them right now when it comes to how much the community likes them. Plus, I think Riven is just annoying by design for those she plays against. The whole art of animation canceling and very "spammable" mobility along with that huge shield she has just makes her a huge annoyance overall. When I face a Riven, every item she builds seems broken to me.
I'm not hating on Riven, Mordekaiser totally destroys her. She is one of the champions who snowball even harder because of DD though.
: Who Uses Death's Dance And Makes It a REAL Issue Besides Draven?
: you should know it we're both triforce users
{{champion:82}} *laughs in highest base ad*
: Double the effects of any ult, who is most overpowered?
Basically any burst ult would lead to people getting oneshot 24/7

: When you want more reworks and VGUs but you hate when it actually happens
: Why did Rito change Maokai and Nautilus, only to make Galio do what they originally do?
Disregarding the fact that Galio's Wave clear is getting nerfed. Or that Nautilus and Maokai's spammable Wave clear spells had pretty fat CC's attached to them. Galio's winds of war only deals damage, and it is losing 35 base damage on the PBE. Also, his R is way more intuitive than say old Maokai R, which you popped the instant a fight began.

: Voli definitely needs a full VGU. His art/theme needs a lot of work.
Well, Zilean always said that Armored Bears don't belong in the League of Legends.
: I see somebody chose the wrong side. THERE WILL BE ORDER
Sw4g3tti (EUNE)
: We need more champions with accents
Petition to give Mordekaiser a German accent post-VGU
Salson (EUNE)
: While his skillflor isn't that high, all of his spells can be dodged. Guess high skill expresion is a better term.
Galio, imo, is the best tank to play if you got great Macro game. Knowing to push side lanes, roaming, shotcalling, etc. is what he promotes. It's one of the reasons he's so good in pro play.
: Why Order is guaranteed to lose
I personally dislike competitions where there are only two choices though. Probably because I am Swiss and I've seen the disaster that was last year's presidential elections. In a way this entire VS. battle is basically Trump vs. Hilary
: Nah, I think we need more types of CC spread throughout different champs, like how Ww got added to the list of Champs with Fears through his rework, and whatnot. Vlad could get a Charm cc for instance, because Charms are hearts and hearts are full of blood.
Miss fortune should get one too,

Not a sarcastic question, really want an answer. Doesn't nasus build full tank except for his sheen item?
A tank's job is to soak damage and apply CC to high priority targets. They usually have huge defensive steroids and AoE CC Juggernauts are tanky melee carries with a strong mix of Damage and Durability. They lack CC and if they do have it it's usually just one ability and not really that strong. Their job is to deal damage and survive long enough to do so, they're basically bruisers.
: But people complain Ahri is a generalist, and Charm gave her something resembling a niche. Something you pick _her_ for. And if Evelynn is getting a Charm then you have two high AP burst champions running around with Charms. Comparatively, you don't pick Camille for her Passive even if it is unique, you pick her for her massive pick potential with E and R.
Well, let's just hope they don't give Eve a backstory where she has a Boyfriend, right?

: Its just the way it is. So few mechanical tanks... Tanks which require brain Gragas - animation canceling, combos etc Zac - eventhough he is overloaded he does have to chooose between 2 ultimates and pick up blobs which is easy btu hey atleast he has something Singed - Because of macro. You mainly have to watch at map Tanks which dont require brain Malphite autopilot Nasus go ap transition into tank... or farm if easy matchup become a tank... Nunu - take enemy jungle, w the carries very hard, e the carries Amumu autopilot Garen autopilot (INB4 he is juggernaut STFU he is just useless type of tank) Mordekaiser yes there is some skill in macroing Pets... Udyr Inb4 trick2g fans unique playstle.......... If you are new to league yes you wont have idea when to use stance or what to max.. But after you see some good udyrs you ll know how to play him without playing him The rest.... Compare that to the mage/assassin role... Light fighter role which consists of fiora/yas/riven... (They prob changed the name of them)
