Hey Meddler, regarding Leona I am curious on the Q change for less stun duration and lower CD and why this was a change made, also are there any other changes coming to her that have yet hit the PBE

: Always feels a little odd to stack items like that when you're not getting stacking benefit from a passive. Not concerned it's too strong from what we've seen. Do have a small buff to ER coming in 9.10 next week though, since conclusion is that's slightly undertuned. Possible that shifts him to IE/ER builds?
I think the reason it is done is because since Jhin doesnt get as much benefit from Zeal Items despite the AS to AD conversion, the raw AD of multiple IE's just is better for him. I nearly got to 1000 AD in one of my games cause of it

Hey Meddler, hows the team feeling bout multiple IE Jhin?

They can make something else with the name and delete this thing
: It isn't cost efficient but it's unhealthy due to the fact that it favors instantly bursting the enemy, detecting vision and allowing you to remove it on a fairly short cd (90 seconds). I never said broken or way better than mage items, it's just simply unhealthy.
plus there is no escaping an assassin who applies a 99% slow on you
: Any thoughts on what items are currently on the list for consideration? Off the top of my head, some thoughts (from my game experience -- I obviously don't have the actual usage stats): * Chalice of Harmony's entire build line seems a bit niche and underutilized. * Executioner's Calling could be interesting with at least one more item built out of it. * Luden's Echo seems almost ubiquitous on mages, and isn't really a pattern enabler like IE or Trinity Force. * Righteous Glory / Shurelya's overlap considerably, and I haven't seen *either* in ages. * RoA is a cool item that might not quite be appealing enough. * Zeke's Convergence. Is it still an item? :P * Zz'Rot Portal, as mentioned. * Frozen Mallet has potential, but only seems strong when it's also oppressive - other HP items like Titanic and Sterak's are just better for the most part. * Nashor's is fun, but SUPER niche. * Hextech GLP seems either underused or undervalued, at least in games I've seen. * Gargoyle Stoneplate seems underutilized.
I'd like if somehow executioners could build into both Mortal Reminder and Morello cause 3000 gold for a mage to deal with say Vlad sucks cause either you build that and lose out on your mana CDR item early, or build your mana CDR item and not be able to deal with his healing
: Goodbye {{item:3056}} Your time have come. May you rest well.
going to join that great big inventory in the sky

While I guess this post is more about removing items and possibly adding new ones in, any items looking to get updated?

Is there Concern Leona could benefit too much from the buff she is getting, cause if it goes through both her Q and E will be on a 3.3 sec CD at 45% CDR

Hey Meddler, how has Vi landed post changes, too strong? too weak? just about right?
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: March 13
Mornin Meddler, How would you say Vi has landed post changes? If after some time you feel you need to pull power out of Kayle (In which I am assuming is her late game) could you throw a small bone just to help her early a smidge, I know she should be weak early but I feel she at times could be a little TOO weak there
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: February 22
Hey Meddler, thoughts on Aftershock, has there been any thought to revert it back to its original form of having it scale with armor and MR?
: Any word on Kayle and Morgana?
August is working really hard on Kayle cause she is really buggy still no eta on arrival

Hi Meddler any thoughts for Shyvana? How did the buffs to her play out? Also regarding Shyvana, I was wondering if it was possible to do a similar thing you guys did with Singed and Rumble and make her W tick faster but have the same damage output
: Hey ! Any buffs for miss fortune planned? She’s pretty weak now that her adc counterparts can catch up in items and that DH rework also hit her pretty hard!
I do very well with Crit Fortune it more reliable than lethality imo
Flemman (EUW)
: I kinda missed it but what was the abuse case for support item? I read somewhere that it was related to support item + klepto avoiding csing and only using the mastery to gain gold but is that right? In that case, what made you chose to nerf item instead of klepto? (add a condition to klepto like last hitting at least 5 cs between each proc for exemple)
basically klepto frost fang you can have 0 CS and still have more gold than someone with perfect CS and because you are constantly hitting the enemy you can end up poking them out of lane since you dont need to worry bout CS until you finish the support item quest
Meddler (NA)
: We're aiming to have a small Neeko buff in soon. More likely to be in 9.5 than 9.4.
Will whoever is in charge of such a thing be looking into her W + Tower interaction, seems to have broken again
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: February 13
Hey Meddler, how are the Vi changes going? do you know if they will be ready to ship soon?
: Anything on {{champion:518}} ? Her interaction from the W basic attacks to the towers was broken again in this patch. I would also like to thank you very much for the changes to {{champion:421}} , I think they are very good and well oriented.
they got stuff planned for Neeko https://i.gyazo.com/83b17659b5c504b7bec859c41a30d3ec.png
: ***
She isn't it was improperly documented on Surrender @ 20, it is actually gonna be a nerf cause she got accidentally buffed one patch by 5 damage on her W, so it will be going down 5 damage

Hey Meddler, What Marksmen are the team going to be keeping an eye on the most for next patch when all the crit changes come through
Rioter Comments
: They should just revert it. I really just want my old 7% mana on a crit back, and this is just last luster. Ill take it tho.
but now you get the mana back regardless of a crit or not
: It's called warding, this is only really the case if you aren't able to see both of these champs coming.
I know I know, but it can be difficult to keep every single path they can take warded at times even if using my blue trinket the moment it comes up to try and ward their flank routes also this prob just sounds like whining at this point but there have been times they dont even go for the flank, they just dive through my entire team to slaughter me and get away (Granted that is more on my team not caring to do anything to stop them)
: Assassins are meant to burst you for 2k if you have terrible positioning or are jacking off on a sidelane 30 minutes into the game, otherwise everyone would just be playing bruisers, this item is one of the laziest things i have seen in a long time in terms of design and rewards adcs for playing poorly while making it extremely hard to deal with as an assassin because of its sheer shield size and duration. I think people are forgetting that Assassins are meant to kill high priority squishy targets with ease if certain conditions are met. I get it, the "lul there is to much damage in the game rn" circlejerk is quite strong at the moment and i agree that damage is a little bit to high too, but still. Games are already going to be longer when season 9 comes around, which means that adcs and supports are gonna have enough tools to deal with assassins easily (even more so if you are playing meta adcs), especially at higher level of play. This change seems like it's directed to lower levels of play. I really hope that Riot playtests this change thoroughly and sees how frustrating and unfun it is to play around/against.
I know assassins are meant to pick people off who position badly but there have been times I am with my team, next to my peel tanks like Braum. a LB or Zed fly in nuke me and teleport away to safety before anyone can react
: I don't think reverting IE's passive is a good idea. The true damage at least gave counterplay to crit marksmen. Now it feels like it's going to be a meta where crit marksmen abuse IE +shiv +razor +rapidfire oneshot builds. It's nice that IE is getting the cloak (20% crit) back. Maybe lowering the IE price to 3200 and keep the true damage passive? Otherwise we're going back to the nuke marksmen once again (that was a huge problem before).
well they lowered the crit amp down from 50% to 25% so that will help a bit, also the true damage IE stuff really conflicted with LDR. Plus assassins like Rengar could just grab an IE and a Zeal item and do a massive true damage crit on someone to nuke them even harder
MT Cup (NA)
: Yassuo made a comment on this, he said it will probably only be good vs assassins for a first item
It will still be a good item for him cause 100% crit chance he needs but we could go back to seeing Shiv Yas
TechTino (EUW)
: 2k? are you insane. lol. It is nowhere near that high
it doesnt help I get to deal with an assassin hyper fed before 10 min.... its not a fun time for me often
saltran (EUW)
: Crit Fortune could be posible again, best timeline ever.
Crit Fortune works even now Cause so many times I see people do the cookie cutter Lethality MF against 2 tanks and do negative damage and laugh at them
: "280 damage is almost nothing when it comes to an assassins combo" Not even gonna argue with you after that.
well I am sorry that often I see Assassins doing over 2k damage with their rotation
Kabakadamn (EUNE)
: ***
It would take months and months to sort out the skin shards, plus they could end up screwing over people who got their shard legit before this bug. It isnt worth the manpower to go through doing every single account for thousands of players manually
: I like the changes but phantom dancer going down to only 30% attack speed will probably make the item not worth getting.
Yasuo still gonna get it big time
Zolntac4 (NA)
: IE shouldnt just give 25% crit. I feel the "double" mechanic is the nicest still here. if its 25% you need 3 zeal items for 100% which is really feels bad. As well the new ER I feel wont be used. You choose to go into a 3200 gold item as part of your crit build and as a reward for finishing the item you get a little ad, 10% cdr, 5% crit, and the mana passive, it just isnt worth going 3200 gold into for. Thank you for keeping "current ER" though. I would also prefer the old PD passive. Its strictly better then this one as long as you are able to auto (aren't dying to a mages poke ability) Looks like nerfs all around for AD's. I would like to ask whats the point and or goal with trying to get a mana regen item back into the crit space?
That Essence Reaver is a god send for the likes of Xayah Sivir Ashe and for some people MF They need that CDR badly back, it used to offer CDR Crit and AD before but it was changed to how it is now and the item became dead for those champs
: Can't wait to never be able to kill adcs again with the PD change, design is as terrible as Windspeakers Blessing and Fearless from Season 6 which effectively made assassins useless for a whole season, it's already hard enough to kill current meta adcs.
280 damage is almost nothing when it comes to an assassins combo, plus currently any adc not Lucian or Ezreal dies from getting breathed on wrong I know cause I have been the ADC and done it to adcs

I am so happy for the return of ER for marksmen Ashe Sivir Xayah and my Crit Fortune missed it so much Also I like that Cloak of Agility has been resurrected from the dead

Morning Meddler, I had ideas for a potential Shyv change and wanted to know what you'd think bout it It would be similar to a change made to rumble and Singed in having Shyvana's W burnout tick faster but deal the same total damage Another idea was her ult ranks allowing for possibly 1 additional auto attack for the extension of Burnout. I just feel she needs something more than the +10% more damage to dragons buff she is getting but I feel a lot of it boils down to her needed a rework int he form of a VGU
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 16
Hey Meddler any champs/runes the team is gonna be keeping a big eye on for pre season?
: Can you spoil us something about the Morgana rework? Is it gonna be just a visual+single spell rework like Ezreal since she's already pretty good or a bigger thing kinda like Nunu?
They said it could be likely Morg's abilities change not at all in her update but if they even do change anything it'd be looking at her Passive, W, and Ult
: To literally pay gold for it? That's not what I read.
The Ornn Player has to actually walk over to an ally with an upgradable item, click on them, and then upgrade the item for free During which time most likely both players will be unable to move
: So we're just gonna gloss over the fact that his entire team gets a free item upgrade?
But the Ornn Player has to be the one to upgrade it
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 9
Also could you possibly ask the rune team if any other Precision runes will get messed with?
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: November 9
Thoughts on Vi? Often times when it comes to buffing her you guys just drop the CD of her ult and call it good when I feel she could use help in other places Also any crit marksmen you still see as struggling? I think people say Cait is one of them that hasnt quite recovered from the item changes
: PETITION to give the LEGENDARY Lunar Eclipse to Diana and make it into a VS Event
I say no because Diana has gotten many good skins over her time and Leona honestly has gotten bottom of the barrel scraps It has been 8 years of waiting for Leona to even get VFX of a different color than Yellow Diana: Lunar Goddess, Infernal, Blood Moon, Dark Waters. All very well done skins Leona: Pool Party and PROJECT are pretty much her only decent skins and those are beyond old She deserves these skins to herself Also when they made these Leona skins the theme was just eclipse but when they showed both concepts and asked for Leona testers to choose one, there was so much love for both Riot made both
Squad5 (NA)
: Ornn changes on PBE
So curious for the Ally upgrades Say a Mage has Zhonya's AND Deathcap, will Ornn get to pick which to upgrade? also does Ornn have to upgrade them in those 4 levels post 11 or just he gets 4 upgrade charges he can use later
LBmyBB (NA)
: OK what's this bullcrap with leona skins?
Not only is it 2 Leona skins its 2 LEGENDARY LEONA SKINS SO HAPPY ITS BEEN 8 YEARS OF THE SAME AS BASE YELLOW PARTICLES Also Lancer Blitz was the first 2 skins one patch
: More yellow VFX plz
I will make soda cans out of you
: Visual Effects Update: Renekton
Man these VFX and SFX updates are great, wonder who will be in the next patch possibly hmm maybe Leona could use a polish
