: Na, AP build will want AD because the AP ratio of the Q goes up insanely hard (Far more than any built AP item could ever even come close to matching) on the single target burst potential with the AD evo, the AS evo is pretty much crucial because she wants AS anyway (On hits scale in speed of application with AS obviously enough). Her W evo is the least crucial, but even then its really easy to get if you get Gunblade (You just need 20 more AP, so ANY source of AP is enough), and her Q synergy with Gunblade is insanely good because of how much raw damage it can put out that SHOULD all be counted as single target. AP builds will probably be Gunblade+ ~ 50-60 AD ad item (Duskblade should be enough, because her AD growth per level should cover the remaining 5 AD more than easily enough, and the lethality makes her Q scarier thanks to it amping it as her Q is physical damage IIRC).

To finish it off you’d probably want either {{item:3091}} or {{item:3115}} to work with Rageblade, then pick up Guardian Angel because she can dive hard and needs some security to make it safe. For hyper late game, sell boots and pick up the one you didn’t build. Witts end would be the safe option while Nashors tooth the aggressive one I may have theory crafted a bit to much that I just could spit that out off the top of my head.
: "Stranded for years in the void"
Thank you to both the rioters for those comments. Both kinda disturbing (she ate something that was basically a giant bug out of a horror movie to survive) and hilarious (somehow?)
: You'd probably just swap tri for BorK. Nothing stops you from building both BorK and Gunblade, and she has great synergy with BorK (Her passive is %missing hp chunk at max stacks, Bork is %current drain on autos).

That’s the one that gives you invisibility during the only time you can’t attack. Out of all stats to skimp on, this is the most dangerous. You’d have to delay gunblade or just replace it, because the AP boost is the least important of the three. I think the developers set the number at 100 for this reason. There are no “Good” builds using all three stats with just three items. The BorK is probably the better build to be honest. It just means your can’t have a three item set, and have to dip into 4 or 5. The best builds though only use 2 in their first three, except ap builds involving Guinsoo’s Rageblade
: PSA: I observed in a youtuber's vid that Rageblade stacks do not interact with the evolution of her abilities in any way. In addition, if you sell an item after evolving an ability, the ability will de-volve as you no longer have the requirement for the evolved ability.

Oh sorry, I meant as in swap out for the build, as in never buying it but something else. Actually, the build is based on 0 Rageblade stacks. You get 100 AD and AS with 130 AP as PERMANENT stats before applying the item's passive. Thank you for pointing that out, I'll work on writing that out. Also, thank's for responding!!! I love discussing things like this. :)
: I'm Going to Clear up a Common Misconception on Kai'sa
Even with only the permenant stats it gains you can get a three item set to unlock all three abilities (4 I guess since you need boots). {{item:3078}} {{item:3006}} {{item:3124}} {{item:3146}} you get exactly 100 AD and AS, with 130 AP as PERMENANT stats. (with 0 Rageblad stacks) I did a couple theory building stuff for her and this build is probably ineffective since specializing is always better, but for a fun, casual game, this works. Only advantage is after building triforce, boots and 1 component of Rageblade you unlock the AS boost on her E. Also she has ABYSMAL (haha, get it?) base AD growth, so the spellblade on Triforce is a waste.

: A Concern with the "Hashinshin" Situation
Eh, i dont think it was hashinshin that got them to act. More the people who naturally rallied with him. my worry is that people attribute all of the movements efforts to what hashinshin did, slightly overstating his impact. I'm sure he contributed, but I find it far more believable Riot ignored him until it became a movement, at which point Riot decided to make changes for a communities happiness, rather than to get one rather violently speaking individual to be satisfied for like 2 week. B.T.W. I agree with some of Hashinshin's points. Find them interesting and potential solutions. But When it comes to violent statements, he is going to far for a GAME. A very fun game I am very invested in gameplay and lore wise. It helps me relax every day. But it's a game. If your not enjoying it enough to make violent statements, your playing it wrong.
: Anyone else find Kai'Sa's character... boring?
A little bit. Her voice is a bit bland, maybe to make it go through the void mask synthesizer more smoothly? I found her Interaction's interesting, but more for the lore aspects than anything else. Though honestly, how emotional do you expect someone battle hardened by the void to be? If emotion was coming out, it'd likely be the PTSD kind. I got the vibe of a "Emotion clicks and is nice, but I'm a bit seperate from it". If that can be called a vibe. But it also kinda makes sense, since emotion in the Void would just get her killed. I think I'd probably play most games with the visor down to get a bit more variance in the lines.

: Mordekaiser, The Iron Revenant: A character Study
Welp, Let me chuck in a fun Lore concept for him as well. (I actually though this was the case already but was corrected recently) Morde dies and in the course of League lore the next thing to happen is the creation of the Shadow Isles. By shortening the time length, you could have Mordekaiser's servants invade the blessed Isle's and use the sacred water to Resurrect Mordekaiser, Kicking of the Ruination. He would then be bound to the mist, using it to expand his new empire of undeath, gathering power to spread his influence. It would impliment him as the Ruined King, somthing that would really fit his lore as a dethroned conqueror Champions Lores who would need a touch up as a result * {{champion:429}} Kalista - She's a good person before the ruination, hard to justify her working for Morde. Perhaps loyal to crown through family ties but finally shattered when shown the goal of Resurrecting Mordekaiser, Someone who was king while she was a child. * {{champion:83}} Yorick - Maiden is the Current Ruined King's Wife. Could be re-written as his head Necromancer bringing him back. * {{champion:412}} Thresh - Eh, you could leave him untouched easily enough. Maybe implicate him in helping Mordekaiser's servants find the lake of blessed water that was the heart of the Blessed Isles. * {{champion:120}} Hecarim - He would be far less conflicted than Kalista. Honestly just make him the same story (not literally) as Kalista but then side against her. And that would Wrap up the lore. I think this would condense lore by quite a bit, as well as just give him a much healthier place in the lore, rather than a very abstract reason why he doesn't just leave the mist now and return to Noxus.
: Kai'sa has Abilities in her Kit and they do Damage it is so Broken
Hahaha, yup. The moment she is released I expect the slew of anger that declares her broken. I mean look at her kit, 1. invisibility with attack speed. 2. If she Isolates you she can dump huge damage with her Q 3. Long range skill shot that hits like a truck if you have enough AP. 4. An inescapable dash. She has 4 tilting abilities (only if she stacks a stat against you though). I think she can be balanced and enjoyable, my only true worry is that one of her three play styles will be to weak, and need buffs. P.S. if you hate divers, use a champion with a stun or knock up.
: Under the Shell: WildTurtle -- "[When I started losing], I was like, ‘Damn, I need to play this game a lot more.’ I don’t want to be bad at it.”
I’m newer to League of Legends (compared to others). The first esport I watched was Worlds 2016. It wasn’t too long after that I heard of Wild Turtle, and I’ve been a fan ever since. When I heard he was on FlyQuest I was estatic because I followed the team because of their usually aggressive style. Glad to see the Team doing better and will always be a Turtle fan. :)

: Fixing Critical Strike: A Proposal.
You've been tackeling this yourself so I'd like your opinion on this idea. I'd say get rid of crit's randomness. Instead of relying on RNG, instead make crit a scaling stat to a max. This way building it is a matter of "how much scaling damage do I want" vs. "how much can I play the odds before ditching crit?". for each 1% of crit, you do 1% increased damage on your auto attacks (plus abilities that list they can crit). This caps at 100% (same damage as current critical damage) It would enable partial crit builds to not be so garbage, but still make it wanted to be built to 80-100% on champs designed to scale with it. (like how you can't auto faster than 2.5 auto's a second without runes or your jinx{{champion:222}} who just got excited) In my mind the pro's would include build flexibility for a large number of champs and also reduce the "that bull random crit" feel in a lot of early fights. damage cold be anticipated to grow at a steady, visible rate. IE would be a situation where the item would need to be changed, perhaps to say "increases critical damage by 50%" or something like that, to account for scaling. Edit* P.S. Can you please create another post with your idea and other community ideas in the comments so riot can see them? you have way more visibility than any of us as individuals, and i think it'd be fun if you included a pull to let the community vote on what version of crit they like the most.

: Brand support does way too much damage
Hmm, I agree that a potential fix would be to lower his base damage and increase his scaling. However, if he gets fed, it will just result in a worse situation then the current. Or if the game goes long enough that even with support gold he manages to scale, he would do MORE damage. AP carry supports I do find an issue with as a support main, but more do a hatred that my other beloved "true" supports can struggle in lane match up, more do to my lack of skill than anything else. So my hate must be channeled. I will crush them with my macro warding and ability to have my adc scale better, (which if their good, no one does more than an adc built properly if i keep them alive long enough). So ya, I do hate Brand support. with a passion. But I also think i just need to practice and learn to crush him like the insignificant speck i view him as.
: If I'm not the one of the 150 LCS players I feel like Riot doesn't give a damn about me
But you haven't played either Ryze or Azir in over two months, during one of Azir's primes.... Also, Huge nerf then small buff? Imagine a scale, you add and remove from each side to make something balanced, not just gut something then say "this is a good thing". Go play an EA game then say Riot doesn't care. They are saints compared to a normal company. Most companies litterally just asume your an idiot. Riot at least made a board for you to complain on, and let your opinion actually make it to the top of board without just removing it (which, don't kid yourself, they could totally do). Look, it's fine to complain, but make it a well thought out response. Azir and Ryze nerf? quote win rates and your concern for players who play them (cause you dont, your match history for months is public domain). Cancer champs? lay out play pattern's you find frustrating and ask the gameplay community about trick's to beat it. (or just counter pick it, just saying). Rant's can be apropriate, but then deleted, not spreading a misconception. Riot gives you boards, allowing you to participate in voting pulls, has post-patch survey's on the league client for anyone. Meddler responds to community questions on his multi-weekly Gameplay thoughts so long as they are thought out and/or he has the answer. Riot could take all this away, and still be better than most game companies, none the less companies in general. My apologies, re-reading this, it comes off demeaning and aggressive. But I did want to pay attention to each of your points, not just take one and ignore the rest (and i think this in a way causes the issue, my apologies). I was actually going to re-write it, but I don't know how to ward it that doesn't come across this way (this is the second draft).

: Unable to use keyboard or mouse in-game - Discord
This glitch has haunted me every time I log into a game 0_0 It only happens rarely but when it does and I didn’t test if it happened, oh gosh. Lane opponents are now up 20cs as I reboot League to fix the issue. Though I will say in the 1 1/2 years I’ve been on League actively, I’ve never had a Mouse problem with it. Only maybe 1/15 games glitching my keyboard so I could type in chat but not activate abilities. (Usually saying “be right back, keyboard glitch” before rebooting League it I checked by insta leveling an ability.) Thanks for letting me know about a solution, this should help reduce pre game jitters a bit. (Though it has happened less recently,annoying when it does).
: If I'm not the one of the 150 LCS players I feel like Riot doesn't give a damn about me
TLDR: you ask a Master how strong something is, not the Student. You may care about the student and what they think, but they can be misled by a smaller perspective as they learn. (Plus all the student’s bicker about what is actually broken or balanced, kinda negating each other’s arguments). Well, being an optimist for the sake of optimism, I love League. Riot produces League. And they are much better than EA or other similar publishers. Riot does make balance changes with the goal of balancing pro AND regular play. Looks at the Nunu nerf last year. He was crushing solo que but had only slightly shown in pro. He was nerfed for solo que. So ya, they care it’s just this low on the Elo bracket (hi, I’m bronze I ) there’s 100,000+ opinions, none of which agree on anything. higher elo’s? There is enough mechanical prowess where the champions true stats show. While where I am it’s about a combination of luck, Mechanical Canyons between players, and how familiar we are with our champions and enemy champions.

You better hope to god you never get put into a situation like he is in, but if you do, maybe you'll understand then, kid. Hold on. First of all. Let's assume mostly 13-18 years old people play this game. A young human being like that cannot be that seriously depressed. Or depressed at all. Being sad because you found out that your crush has a bf/gf or that ur crush doesnt like you back or because of a bad grade in school is not a depression. Its just an extended time period sadness. You MIGHT have had suicidal thoughts (99.9% of people has had them), and its a normal thing. Well. Not 100% normal, but it happens often nowdays. Back on topic. Since you took depression as a main reason for that, playing a game where everyone is going to flame you for a death or a missed canon minion will not help you cure your 'depression'. Eat tons of chocolate, drink a cup of tea, go for a walk, talk to friends (if you have one, depressed shits tend to cry in corner how their life sucks). Etc. Stop being asocial and baaam, depression gone. Met a 13 years old kid whom cut his arm with razor because his friend stopped talking to him. No, its not a depression, its just too much internet and parents that dont care at all. Your only job, as a 13 year old KIDDO is to study and spend ur free time with friends. Not to cut yourself because youve seen it on internet and thought its cool to be depressed.

Not to cut yourself because youve seen it on internet and thought its cool to be depressed. So a few things. 1. Someone in that age range can totally have serious depression. Usually tied to abuse and other traumatic experiences that can happen to young and old alike. 2. Depression is a biochemical imbalance in the brain. Sometimes the body returns these functions to normal. So yes, some instances of depression are temporary, but can be serious if the body does not correct, either through counciling or its own natural processes. 3.Sometimes depression does not fix itself just by exposure. These instances require medicine to help the body. You stomach produce to much acid chronically so it causes ulsers? Medicine. Your brain produces to many Negative chemicals than is healthy, despite atempting healthy social and emotional activities (for a decent amount of time)? Medicine. Chemical imbalances are a ln issue in the brain like any other part of the body (except the brain regulates all others on top of its own, so ya know it’s prone to issues) 4. These are emotions, the number one biggest rule of them: they don’t make sense. Trauma for someone can be a breeze for another, but then the 1st person can tank like Maoki through other issues. Basically your right. People should change life style and seek out friends and family before labeling themselves depressed. But at the same time, neither you nor I can look through a monitor at prolonged situations to determine that. P.S. you are totally right, engaging with any community on the internet is not likely to fix depression. For me it helped bust a long funk I’d been in, but depression is a different level.

Hey, I had a question about Mordekaiser. His lore is supper epic, but something has always caught my attention with it. Mordekaiser is a king from a distant land, who now Dwells in the Shadow Isles. ... Is Mordekaiser the Ruined King? I know his lore would need some tweaking for that but the two seem SUPER similar in a few aspects. The love for a dying queen when His kingdom fell as he marched his army to the Blessed isles would be awesome (considering he would likely also be dying, thanks to LeBlanc) So ya. That tangent. Is Mordekaiser the Ruined king?
: Honestly, I dont really have a problem with the game. There are some overtuned champs running around, but I just dont see these massive issues. There are like 3 overtuned ADCs. Top lane is not as bad as people say it is. People whine about tanks when the entire meta seems to be all carry tops; GP/Camille/Gnar/Jayce/Vlad/etc. I haven't felt screwed over no matter what role I get. Maybe its because I take breaks and I dont get burned out like people playing 24/7, 365. The game damn sure has been worse, I guarantee that. Bot lane has a lot of focus, but its less about the champs and more about the dragons/first turrets/freeing up 2 people to do things. Even so, I think people just like to whine.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: February 14
Welp, I’m not a Quinn main. If there is one I’d love your feed back. But I did play her a bit, theorycrafting builds and play style. Here’s my take I feel like I want to play her like a ranged assassin (like actually one, not what all the adc haters call it). She feels like her true home is mid lane and to roam. Fly around the map at Mach 5, dive enemy lines with a Predator, Valor, Ghost, and Yassumos powering up Celerity. (The over kill on that may just be me, but the speed on her is amazing given she can’t go over walls). From a build perspective, it makes sense to go lethality. Her ability’s do have her get fairly close (for a marksman) and she has good ratios to really capitalize on the 55 ad with each item. Plus Nights Veil is amazing, letting her get off her back flip and second half of her ult a bit safer, given how predictable the landing spot is. Having to build Crit rather than this is really sucks, and makes it hard (Impossible for someone who doesn’t main her) to get into enemy lines without guaranteed dying. From a feels perspective, I’d say let her just build lethality, and remove the Crit ratio from her passive, rebalance accordingly. To fix the oppressive vs mele issue, lowering her range by 25-50 could help, but that would kill most her hope for being in bot lane. I do think being able to keep moving during her channel would feel so much better. I loved that suggestion from someone else. So ya, all you mains of Quinn please respond if your here. What’s your impressions on this?

I’ve just started up ranked so I’m super excited for this season and all the incoming changes. Btw, Loved the Support item changes for most my champs.

Hey Meddler! Hope your having a good day! I’m a support main and wanted to ask if you guys would ever consider an AD support item? or making Spell Thief’s adaptive? I was just thinking it might help mages go bot lane as long as you could mix up the damage profile of the support to compensate. P.S. I do somewhat play Ziggs bot still. Can’t wait for the update to see if it will help him do it better!

Tear into Nashor’s and Lich bane makes for some mean auto attacks. Pick up the last 10% cdr in runes and you just finish the build off with a Deathcap and Void staff.

: I believe all the support items are getting a Ruby Crystal added to the stage 2 recipy, so hopefully that helps

What their really doing is making it so the eye of the ___ are 400 good cheaper.
: Has there been consideration about making a FotM style item that doesn't require targeting? While I don't have numbers to back this up, my initial impression would be that because Frost Queen's and Talisman both have a lower skill barrier in just pressing a button, it might be that it sees lower overall use because the other two are just simpler.

While I don't have numbers to back this up, my initial impression would be that because Frost Queen's and Talisman both have a lower skill barrier in just pressing a button, it might be that it sees lower overall use because the other two are just simpler. That would be called Iron Locket if the Solari for Non target shielding. It’s useful, but other roles or supports are tied to some of the actives on those two, while FotM is more for the 500 health, then 500 more from Ruby Sightstone. My only hope is they add in another cheap source of health for supports

Kinda just a fun thought but how cool would it be if Skarner could ult his crystals and drag them around?

: Oh you outplayed your laner top?
I mean... I guess. I play splitpush a lot so if they actually show top I slam ping my team to either dragon or the nearest pushing lane. That’s the thing, if my team is able to do ANYTHING I will split push until they have to deal with me. Then usually the permashoved mid and bot lane can get a tower by that point

: Actually, it is a literal fact [backed by many studies] that gaining weight is incredibly harder then losing it. You lose weight on average 4x faster then you would gain weight. Yes it is probably more comfortable to your mouth [not your paycheck] to gain weight, but the fact is you lose WAY faster then you gain.

True, but that’s ignoring the habit breaking that some studies compare to drug addictions they’re so ingrained. That’s the hard part.
: I can't even if I wanted to. My metabolism is actually speeding up as I get older. It's actually scary.

Lucky son of a gun. I have a twin who’s got that “problem”. Repeat, TWIN. How does that not happen for both of us when I’ve always been the healthier one!
: Just an genuine concern. What does it take to get your off-meta pick approved?
So, it takes a high Elo player also playing it and finding success. These champions kits also have very strong synergy with these roles. Morgs eternal root, cc shield, and potent team fight zone control. Ezreals natural life steal, ability to hop walls, and the early power makes him an adept jungler. So high Elo, natural kit that makes it appealing, and lastly: dumb luck and whimsical aproval. People sometimes just don't like an off Meta pick. Zigs bot is a great example. Very potent, accomplishes all the bot lane goals, but just its quirky nature and ap mid lane Meta made people shy away when the enemy could stack mr to beat your team. So ya, it takes the stars aligning to have a pick become Meta.

: People tend to push theyr idea or argument any way possible, i remember seeing in one thread someone comparing {{item:3285}} with{{item:3087}} and because statick so much better it meant that Mages are useless. In another one someone compared adc dps to a mages ful combo or something. Evry time someone mentions how mages are weak i just keep remembering how in evry game we have a mage in mid lane. I will admit that i do think that mage items are not in that great of a state, they do need to have a look at and Riot did mention they will, but mages themself are doing fine.
Thank you for being a sain and positive person. I was pretty sad at all the negative on the boards I've seen today. I was very happy to find this page. Ya, I agree. Mages do just fine. I wish they had a bit more item variation but I don't think their terrible.
: How do you snowball on a champion that can just clear waves without ever needing to fight and won't let you roam? Also even if you don't get stunned by her R it's still a big"no" zone so if she uses it next to her carry you are forced to leave the area, releasing the pressure from that carry (kinda like zyra r, you probably won't get knocked up by it but the ability says"get the f** away from here"). If anything I wouldn't say she gets snowballed on, more like she lacks proper damage unless she herself is somehow snowballing
So, it only stunns people who start in the ring and don't leave. It's great disengage is that the enemy has to leave that zone. I feel like Morgs support kit is fine. Massive root, thunder lords prock, and cc shield with damage, disengage ult. I mean it's just not that bad a kit for support. Ya, her passive isn't supporty but I like it. It could get reworked if people were really interested in a change.
: She should still be reworked with her being a mid laner in mind. I'm fine if she works in both roles, but if she isn't viable mid, I'll be supremely disappointed. She was my mid main last season (with a 71% win rate even), so I hope she can become one of my top mid lane choices again (currently Xerath with Ori and Lux backups. Working on adding more backups now). I'm perfectly fine with her being heavy utility, but she has to still do some good damage with AP.
Eh, I think she's fine as a support. Mid lane has a dozen champs for each support. Plus there's no other support like her, but mid lane has similar roots, shields, and aoe damage. Don't rob support because her kit works well for it
