: What I Want From A Janna Update, From A Janna Veteran
Personally, I’d like Janna to have her hair down more but still floating and flowing. She’d look look nice in a unique, long, and diaphanous dress. However, I’m not sure what would be added to make the design distinct and unique from other characters from other games.

: 99LP in ranked doesn't feel very rewarding..
That just moves the problem. Just feel free to dodge if you feel you lost in champ select; take advantage of that 99 LP.

: Yep. I'm generally gonna use 'they' for unreleased champs since I don't want to give away any details that haven't been already teased.
But didn't it already get confirmed on servers where there is gender specific nouns for champions? I believe that on one of the Spanish-speaking servers that the new mage was addressed as 'maga'.

: Does Nami need a rework, or is she just too strong in her current state?
The only reason why I think a mini rework would be warranted is because Nami sucks in competitive.
: Just because Ezreal got ONE simple change
IMO Ezreal W is pretty easy to use so I don’t know why you’re getting triggered. However, Ezreal DID lose a lot of overall power as you can see with his winrate.

Well maybe you should wait to make these kinds of threads. Patch 8.20 was recently finalized.

You are not. All games would so much better without supports or healers AT ALL. >you know shit, you know how easy its to play JG or ADC? no? then dont spew BS to us, cause u know SHIT! Oh I believe I do, as matter of fact I have achieved diamond rank maining different role every season since season 4. Only role that I have avoided so far was support for obvious reasons. 1, support is boring 2, support isnt interesting 3, support has very little influence in game or if it has, it is inherently broken role #censer meta. Currently hardest role to play is playing mid lane because you are literally playing second jungler while also managing waves. Second is jungler for being mid laner without managing waves but focusing more on objectives third and fourth are adc and top in no order. LAST IS SUPPORT. As for the difficulty of climbing with role when you master them mid is first jungle is second adc is third support is fourth and then there is top. Top is objectively harder lane to play than support but climbing with it is harder too. MAKES SENSE > As support u have to WARD, Just like any other role, especially as jungler and mid laner. Top lanes importance of wards is basically same as bot lanes, but you have to do it solo. >to DEFEND and to fucking DO all the DIRTY job in this GAME, Like gank? Like farm CS and stay relevant? Like beat your opponent on lane? Like build one of the most expensive item builds? Oh wait, you have to baby sit adc. RIiIIGHT because that adc somehow disappears once the laning phase ends right? Do you understand what SUPPORT means? That means that you SUPPORT most vulnerable part of your team which is, you wouldnt guess it , ADC. Or you can just go brand and kill their adc. But at that point why wont you go mid and play better champs and increase your chance of winning? You are literally crippling yourself if you are actually a good player, or you are bitching about something that is still overpowered and you just wont admit it. >you think its easy to shield a retarded ADC who doesnt even know how to farm? {{champion:40}} press E {{champion:61}} press E, but you are better off on mid so why waste time on support? {{champion:43}} press E {{champion:117}} press E {{champion:99}} aim and press W, but you are better off on mid so why waste time on support? {{champion:16}} press W {{champion:267}} press W {{champion:497}} press E {{champion:26}} press R, press E {{champion:223}} press W I just gave you extensive guide on how to get freelo on supports. No need to thank me. Also notice how most of these abilities arent even skillshots? You literally press the button from range, and they get shield. "But man you have to time it right to block most of the damage". God damn dude, a reactive gameplay in real time multiplayer game? Damn now I cant scroll through facebook while supporting shit. I bet there are a lot of salty janna mains sad about shield change that actually requires you to use your brain instead of spamming it off cooldown. Imagine that on riven? Boards would be fucking full about rivens shield having down time of 0.5 seconds. And, rivens shield is objectively worse. Not only it scales from one of the most expensive stats (i dont care about some ad items being cheap, pure AD is expensive), it also doenst give her any other benefits. {{champion:40}} builds {{item:3504}} for around 2k gold and now her shield has lower cooldown, has higher value, gives AD, gives attack speed, gives life steal. For press of a button on ranged ability. >or worse getting free hits from ENEMY team, yet you somehow manage to save his retarded ass and if he has no KILLS, whom's to blame? THE SUPPORT, adc has less creeps than the enemy team, supp fault ... the fuck? Dont play the support then. People blaming you for everything doesnt make your role any harder. It only makes your role annoying. If it made your role harder, jungler would be hardest role to play in the gaming industry. SS tier maps on osu? get that weak shit out of here. Speedrunning half life in 15 minutes? Thats for casuals, I was jungle main in season 6. All the panties drop, everyone is wet. Dont like being blamed for everything? there are 4 other roles. Play utility mages mid, almost like support but can actually carry the fkin game. >ADC died 3 times in under 6 min cause he got free hits from enemy team and they could KILL SHOT with a spell? Btw do you know what is funny about ADC like this? He is in your elo. If he is autofill, tough luck. But I bet you would do sooooo much better if you got autofilled on any other role. And if he is actually ADC main, thats the representation of your skill. Thats how you would look in his role. But you dont because you play support. So get your head out of your ass and try other role. >SUPPORT's fault, dont try to be smart, cause u already failed when u said supp its the most simple and easiest JOB EVER, %%%%! It is.
: Assassins weren't really meant for competitive pvp games. Riot just slapped on classes that RPG games had, just like everyone else did, while ignoring whether it was a good idea or not. Assassins weren't the only class that was bad for competitive pvp. The difference here is the other had been more or less removed (afk heal bots with zero cost) while assassins remained. When it comes down to it, it's all about them views. Watching Soraka provide infinite hp and mana, or Sona being a W bot isn't enjoyable, but I guess see those assassin "outplays" are.
Soraka didn't provide infinite HP tho. It had a long ass cooldown with a very high mana cost

Comet should be the guaranteed hit.

Then why does it have a damage component, then? :thunking:
Because It's meant to give poke champions that can actually use the shield aspect of it better poke in lane.

However, even if this change was implemented, it would still be bad for mages only to have 1 keystone to choose from. Comet guaranteed on hit would still favor burst Mages more than DoT Mages. This is not to mention that if it did become guaranteed to hit, it's damage would have to get massively nerfed and now nobody wants it. Besides, Aery is already supposed to be the "guaranteed hit" version of Comet. It would be way too similar to each other if both were guaranteed to hit.
Aery is NOT supposed to the guaranteed hit version of Comet. If Comet were to be guaranteed hit, Aery would become obsolete on mages who want the sustained damage. Aery is supposed to be a SUPPORT keystone, not just a keystone you want for more damage.
: These are the Runes that I believe are in need of replacement... Because Mages aren't the only one's that happen to lack diversity in Rune choice it seems. There are no Runes for DoT Champions (Aery is just terrible), no runes for On-Hit Hybrid champions besides Attack Speed, and etc... A lot of the Runes we have in general don't seem to provide anything interesting, besides stats and bonus damage, no interesting unique effects or anything... ###PRECISION * Presence of Mind * Legend: Tenacity * Legend: Bloodline * Last Stand ###DOMINATION * Taste of Blood * Zombie Ward ###SORCERY * Nullifying Orb * Trancendence * Waterwalking ###RESOLVE * Overgrowth * Unflinching ###INSPIRATION * Glacial Augment * Hextech Flashtraption * Magical Footwear * Minion Dematerializer * Biscuit Delivery The reason as to why I believe these Runes need to be replaced is because... ###UNINTERESTING * Legend: Tenacity (Tenacity that not only doesn't make a diference anymore but it's also something no one ever picks). * Legend: Bloodline (Boring free, weak Lifesteal). * Trancendence (Free Cooldown and bonus damage that scales with your CDR). * Overgrowth (Just a basic minor health increase). * Magical Footwear (Free boots essentially, don't grant any unique bonus apart from +10 bonus movement speed). * Biscuit Delivery (Free Potions). ###WEAK * Nullifying Orb (It scales with max Health but with damage as well, regardless of what this Rune is almost never picked). * Minion Dematerializer (After trying it several times, I barely see the effect it has apart from executing minions that your tower will kill). ###NEVER PICKED * Last Stand (Have to risk being low enough to deal additional damage, seems risky and pointless). * Waterwalking (Basically a Rune focused more around Junglers, granting Movement Speed in the River). * Unflinching (Using a Summoner Spell to gain Slow Resistance, and Tenacity). * Glacial Augment (Never picked, and just a simple free Frozen Malet). * Hextech Flashtraption (Used by Supports to create flashy plays). ###TOO SIMILAR TO OTHER RUNES * Zombie Ward (Not only does it not belong in the Domination tree, it also has the same purpose as Ghost Poro). ###DON'T BELONG IN THAT TREE * Presence of Mind (Mana and minor Cooldown refund on Ultimate ability upon takedowns?). * Taste of Blood (Sustain Rune in a Burst oriented Tree?).
I really like Transcendence and Biscuits though.

This former mastery had potential. Just slap a cooldown on it like electrocute. and make your auto to be scaled on Ap, or even add aoe like tiamat. And it would be a cool keystone. I don't see any actual Mage taking this, I think they prefer either Arcane Comet because they have CC to go with it, or they take Electrocute because their burst is high. The only ones I see taking this keystone are AP Assassins like {{champion:84}} , {{champion:131}} , {{champion:245}} , {{champion:60}} , {{champion:28}} , {{champion:105}} , {{champion:79}} , {{champion:38}} , {{champion:76}} and {{champion:142}} . Besides, Aery already triggers on auto attacks and scales with AP so Arcane Blade would be way too similar to a Keystone we already have (*cough* Hail of Blades *cough*). I'm sorry, but I don't really see the potential in this a Keystone.
It would be good on supports that have no waveclear that may want to go mid {{champion:40}} {{champion:37}}.
: Deathfire Touch. Please. DPS Mages suck right now, it's only burst Mages that barely work.
Honestly though if Arcane Comet hit was guaranteed then we wouldn't need DFT. However, even if this change was implemented, it would still be bad for mages only to have 1 keystone to choose from.

: I think you put it pretty well actually. Nami / Bard are the modern brand of enchanter. Even though Nami doesn't do nearly as much "enchanting" as a Sona or Soraka, the feeling of being a positive supportive ally is still there. Edit: also I didn't answer your question about if enchanters can become more viable in solo lanes. Generally we're not opposed to it if the gameplay isn't completely degenerate (old soraka starfall spam). Though in some cases like lulu they can work pretty well but in others their tools make it hard for them to be viable with minor tuning.
Would it be possible to buff the AP ratio on Nami Q? Nami would be such a fine addition to the mid lane if the bubble ratio didn't fuck her
: By giving him an easier opportunity to do damage.
This is such a stupid comment I don’t even know what to say
: If Ezreal's VGU goes well: Jax, Blitz and Kennen are next in line!
I wish Janna would get a VGU soon, but keep her tornado and ult pls
: I'm actually HEAVILY disappointed in Riot when it comes to Enchanters as an entire concept
It's sad Janna has been nerfed so much. It's just that her kit is so fundamentally powerful that it's hard to keep her at a good state.

Whenever I see a Leblanc I pick Janna mid. its so fun cancelling their W

You honestly might as well take the damage off W LOL
: Zoe should be fucking gutted
she literally got gutted last patch
: > 3. The bonus magic damage on her basic attacks and W is barely noticeable. It’s only useful on W at mid-game. > > 7. Her W shouldn’t be allowed to be a viable poke ability in the first place. It was a good direction to make Janna more interactive, but just right-clicking people for 200 damage isn’t the most exciting thing in the world. W is barely noticeable? W for 200 damage? I mean I could be misinterpreting this, but my take on it was that janna W does no damage, then her W does damage, but it's a boring interaction. sorry about the odd area. Was trying to quote from text, just started using board more often.
Janna W has high base damage, it's just the bonus damage from her passive that doesn't really seem to be there.
: Doesn't design flaw 7 contradict design flaw 3?
Why do you think that? I'm trying to see why.
