: What is Evelynn's lore?
-Also most demons have some sort of fall from grace or something that conjures them into existence but Evelynn is just kinda here to be a plot device for Vayne? Riot has went on record that the demons are not related to Christianity whatsoever. So as far as I know there is no "grace". Evelynn was a manifestation of all the pain of the rune war. -Why wouldn't she kill Vayne? Does she have the big grand plan? Could she turn Vayne into a demon like herself? After all Vayne has become a cold blooded rutheless monster killing machine and it would make sense seeing as how she's going down a dark road... Eve seeks out the happiest people to feast on. I doubt she would get much from a young child that just saw her parents get killed. -Why does Evelynn eat things like dragon if she feeds off pain? Can demons feed off normal means and just choose to feed of the suffering of others (in Evelynn's case because Tahm quite literally eats people if I'm not mistaken) because it's fun for them and they can do so? Dragons can feel pain. Demons in Runeterra feed off of a feeling. Tahm Kench and Evelynn both need consent to eat. Tahm Kench needs a verbal agreement Evelynn needs physical touch. Tahm Kench feeds off of greed and gluttony. Eve feeds off of lust. -On top of all that Evelynn seems to have disdain for Ahri (in the theoretical circumstance that they were to one day meet based off of interactions in game) and calls her a skank, and while I don't think Eve is quite a succubus she does use sexuality to her advantage to lure in prey, but we never really see how Evelynn is on her own. I mean its the same for the other demons in league as well, we only see them in the context of what they hunt, never seeing them how they see themselves and how they conduct themselves while not hunting. So whats Eve truly like? That was probably more of a joke from Riot. It is pretty funny for a literal succubus to call another character a skank. Demons in league are what they hunt. They are purely a manifestation of human feelings. Eve is always looking for the next meal. Tahm is always trying to make a deal.

: Can we make Taric less mana hungry?
Don's level Taric heal. It increases the max amount of charged held and a slight increase in heal while massively increasing the mana cost even if you only have one charge. It is best to keep it at one point. Heal, passive, heal, passive, heal. Quantity over quality. Will still have mana issues early game but maxing q feels terrible without running a tear. Update: Every website I have looked at has suggested to level q second or third.

Got a great my shop this time. 4 skins I have been wanting including the last Braum and Rakan skin I do not have. All but one 50%+ discount. Only complaint is random Teemo and a Pyke skin. I do not play either.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 6
Any word on Zyra? The buffs were appreciated but they didnt make her play patterns fun again. It is irritating having your plants get one shot before firing a single auto attack and she is almost impossible to play in some matchups now (Corki one shotting her plants at any stage in the game from range) and melee champions accidentally auto attacking her plants before they deal any damage.

She synergizes with Liandries well and Rhylais synergizes with Rhylais. The lesser price is nice but the item does little for lane pressure. Vine lashers are extremely helpful in laning phase in some situations. As I said previously there are many problems with her kit including the hard counters and how easy it is to kill her plants. Her scalings are 60-70%, about the same as a ton of mages, her plant scalings are terrbile, but they need to be. Landing her abilities is huge. And i still stand by the rylais slow having better lane pressure than the burn on liandries. Making the enemy champion glow and slow every 6 seconds is more pressure than you think. It also has far better anti gank and anti pick potential. It increases her ult knockup potential immensely , and cost 500 less... I cant trade all that for 1% damage over time, and the awkward passive, at the cost of 500 gold. I just dont see it. By the time liandries passive is doing anyhting, youve probably already harassed enough to capitalize or just straight burst with any other 80 ap item.
I am not sure where you are getting your information. Her ult scaling is 70% which is low itself for an ultimate ability. Her q scaling is 60% and her e scaling is 50% much lower than most midlaners. Your 5 more ap gives... 2 more damage to her abilities. Liandres would give much more. Your vine lashers slow and your e roots so slows do not seem that important on her. Zyra has the lowest base health in the game at 500. Liandries would add 5 more damage every second. The 5 ap adds 2. In the worst situation the Liandries burn does more damage. Champions would have more health by the time you buy it. Can we move back to the problems in her kit? I was just questioning your build and I already said if it works for you it is fine.

I found a post from about a month ago of Riot Repertir replying to a post about the plant changes. He listed some possible solutions to the problems so he believes there are problems with her kit. https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/G9MBq6tx-meddler-can-i-get-a-statement-on-how-you-think-your-changes-turned-out-to-be-after-6-patches

: I don´t agree that she scales bad. She scales well but go for lategame it is a choice wich has to be actively made and depends on playstyle.
I never said she scales bad. I said she scales bad with ap. Her ap ratios are not the best which is why magic pen rush was the go to build and why Liandre's +Rhyalis are so common on her. The percentage health damage is far better than raw ap.

The reason im rushing rylais is because im valueing the free slow on poke, much much much higher than the miniscule burn damage from liandries for 500g cheaper as well. Your overall burst doesnt change really at all, in fact rylais offers 5 more ap with an added slow and a faster powerspike. I dont see why you would ever buy liandries first. Especially when playing support.
In the words of the great Melyn... Utility is a lie there is only damage. Through damage I gain kills. Through kills I gain gold. Through gold I gain items. With items my kit is broken. The thorns shall free me from elo hell. But in all seriousness Since Rhylais was nerfed it has not been seen as too viable on Zyra. Most Zyra mains stopped going it all together.

Brand is the best ap support right now. Zyra feels absolutely terrible since her plant changes and this season hasnt been kind to her and Velkoz is difficult to play well.

: Which champion should receive the next rework?
I am hoping for a support. There are a few that could really use it. {{champion:16}} : There is so much potential for her character, even more so now that she is no longer bound to Warwick. {{champion:37}} : Tends to be either the best or worst support in the game. Irritating to play as and against. So much Riot could do with her character that doesnt involve spamming auras every second. These two needs some work but not a full blown rework. {{champion:26}} : Unique playstyle that some enjoy. Could be a much more compelling character if given a new passive that gave less invisible power (or a quality of life change so you cant put it on cooldown for 2 xp...) and a more interactive w. {{champion:30}} : The last few seasons havent been kind to the death singer. Some tweaks could move him away from the suicide playstyle.

All of the summoner champions need some work imo. compared to the others he's in a really bad spot, the voidlings werent his focus actually, but you could build around them and they would be a good strat. this doesnt work anymore because of the way they were changed with the rework and after. champions like {{champion:143}} and {{champion:74}} have better "summon" interaction because their kits are actually centered around them to a good degree. Malz never had that relation, the voidlings were just something you got from casting stuff. making them so you could invoke them directly was counterproductive because they actually got weaker to compensate that freedom thus being obsolete compared to summons from actual summoning champions. gated amount of summons -> they have space to be more powerfull despite their limited numbers freedom to spam summons -> have to be weak to compensate or otherwise they become underwhelming to the enemy pre-rework Voidlings were capable of shredding people in seconds if you built AD with {{item:3071}} because not only they scaled with your health but also the total AD and their attacks would apply armor shred on top of on hit effects like Red Buff, this coupled with enraging a few seconds after spawning that was the attack speed steroid the get now from using E on a target. they were really nasty back then and the kit was balanced because if you focused on that build you didnt have AP to boost the rest of the kit. now they scale a bit with AP and apply magic damage but its worth nothing because they die with a single basic attack and have way less raw power.
Yorick is probably the best designed summoner, though some of their mechanics are irritating to play with. Heim has had his turrets slowly lose their impact, now his kit is heavily reliant on his w. Zyra's plant AI feels extremely lackluster. This is compounded by the recent changes to health. This season has not been kind to her. She lost her early power with the new runes system since magic pen was removed and her itemization took a large hit with the ap itemization changes. It seems like every time they change malz they make him less fun to play. His voidlings, which I imagine as a huge part of his kit, are now near useless and there arent the highs of swarming an enemy. They have made Zyra plants the same way and it feels terrible. Most of the time her plants are accidently destroyed before they fire a single auto attack. RLDR: Riot seems to be pushing summoners away from their niche. All summoned creatures are losing power and Riot needs to look at all three again. {{champion:90}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:74}}
: with all those partial reverts, comebacks and balance changes in the PBE
Hopefully Riot does more work on Malz soon. All of the summoner champions need some work imo.

Galio, Urgot, and Evelynn had all of their skins recreated when they got reworked. They might as well be new skins.
: Probably the best way to nerf Tahm Kench.
I disagree that the best way to nerf Tahm Kench is to nerf every single ability and removing every reason you would play Tahm Kench.

My go to offensive support has started to be Leona or Blitzcrank. Zyra and Brand are both also effective depending on the team comp.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 12
Would you be able to give any insight on enchanter items? It feels like the enchanter items are slowly being pushed to late game. Ardent was nerfed heavily early, redemption and athene's scales off of percent mana regen, mikael's is a situational item. I have been building locket early on most enchanters because none of the enchanter items feel worthwhile as a first purchase.
: Not even mentioning that (sometimes) juicy dragon waiting to be taken.
True, dragon seems like a much more powerful objective than rift herald. Not much of a point to heavily pressure top river since rift is only taken when absolutely free.
: Can the Entire Game NOT Revolve Around Bot Lane?
Well.... Riot has been making support more influential over the last season and that lane does hold 2/5th s of the team. If support is as influential as every other role (which it looks like that is what riot wants) then it is only logical that putting resources into bot lane will make sense.
Novalas (NA)
: Patch Chat with the Playtest Team - 8.1
I have a few questions about the support role. 1: Any more plans for Zyra in the near future? The changed made her mid feel much better and the damage buff on her e helped her support a bit but she still feels much weaker than last season since she lost the early magic pen most Zyra mains brought on her. 2. I enjoy the idea about the sighstone change but it feels like enchanters do not have items that are good to rush. It seems like enchanter items are being pushed to late game. Ardent was nerfed heavily early and feels pretty bad until late game (which supports tend to not get to since it scales with level). Redemption needs percent mana regen to be effective which supports will not have early. Athene's needs percent mana regen as well. Miikaels is a highly situational item. Are there any changes being tested to change this issue? And one question about Heimer. 1. I have always viewed heimer's appeal being his unique mechanic with turrets but it feels like the recent changes to him has put a much lower emphasis on the turrets and more on his rockets. What are the platyest team's thoughts on this change?
Rockman (NA)
: can we fix bushes
It is also weird how large champions can hide in bushes. Though in Alistar's case it is probably just cowmooflage.
: why is support useless and boring
Supports currently have the highest winrates in the game. Support is just as difficult as any other role.
: How do people do it?
Dictate the laning phase. Play a support whose engages create an easily seen trading window like Taric, Leona, Zyra. Act like you are in control of the lane without being toxic. If you do not see the adc as a win condition do not support the adc after laning phase. Find the win condition and make sure they succeed.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: December 8
What is the balance team's view of support items? It feels like every Enchanter item is being pushed to a late game option. With the recent change to ardent it is terrible to rush. Athene's and Redemption both scale off of mana regen and feel bad early. Mikael's is situational and very few build it. Enchanters have felt extremely lack luster to me since ardent was nerfed so heavily and the nerf to Aery which I believe brought the strange uses in mid and top in line but was a direct nerf to support.

Any word on enchanter supports? They have felt extremely lackluster (at least for me) since the ardent nerfs. It feels like every enchanter item is now late game focused so there is not an item to rush. Ardent is useless early now. Redemption scales off of mana regen which you wont have early. Athene's scales off of mana regen. The lack of a decent starting item and the nerf to Aery has made them feel weak. I believe the aery nerf brought top and mid laner's who should have been using comet in line but was a direct nerf to enchanters. Edit: More nerfs to enchanter items on the PBE?
: Details on our extra patch coming in December!
Any word on enchanter items? Enchanters feel lackluster to play (to me at least) because they have no item that feels good to rush. Ardent is now near useless early. Redemption scales off of mana regen so it feels bad early. Very few people like building Mikaels. Athene's scales off of mana regen so it also feels terrible to rush.
