Item Changes

Eclipse

  • Now gives Passive health.

Ravenous Hydra

  • Omnivamp switched with lifesteal.

Maw of Malmortius

  • The combination cost is reduced.
  • Omnivamp is switched with lifesteal with the lifeline Passive.
  • Provides 0 ability haste now, but gives slightly more AD.

Death’s Dance

  • The combined cost is increased. Healing reduced, armor incfreased and the amount of AD Deaths Dance gives is increased too. However, the ability haste is removed.

Black Cleaver

  • Both Black Cleaver’s health and AD are increased. This item will be stronger overall and we may see some other champions picking this item up now.

Oblivion Orb

  • You now get less AP from Oblivion Orb.
  • Grievous Wounds application is increased.
  • I don’t like this change; it negatively impacts many champions.

Chemtech Putrifier

  • The combined cost is reduced, and the amount of grievous wounds is increased.
  • It no longer is applied when you heal or shield an ally.
  • Its ability haste is reduced, and so is the amount of AP.
  • Grants additional healing and shielding amounts.

Morellonomicon

  • The recipe is changed, and the total cost is increased.
  • Grievous wounds is adjusted.
  • Grants additional magic pen, but provides less health.

Executioner’s Calling

  • Grievous wounds is increased which makes Executioner’s Calling much stronger. However, this buff comes with a nerf. The amount of AD it provides is reduced.

Chempunk Chainsword

  • Grievous Wounds is increased, but its no longer doubled when the enemy is lower.

Mortal Reminder

  • Cost increased, grievous wounds adjusted and now grants armor pen.
  • Unfortunately, it no longer gives attack speed and no long provides movement speed.

Lord Dominik’s Regards

  • AD is increased.

Bramble Vest

  • Grievous wounds increased, and the reflect damage is increased too. This will strengthen all tanks and aid them in taking down champions and teams with a lot of sustain.

Thornmail

  • Reflective damage is changed. Greenview wounds application is also changed.
  • Overall, I think this item is in good shape, but time will tell if more champions buy it.

Infinity Edge

  • Crit strike required is reduced which offers more build options for champions.

Navori Quickblades

  • The critical chance required is decreased. It offers more options for many champion builds.

Bloodthirster

  • Cost reduced, provides less lifesteal but the shield is stronger overall. In my opinion, a good change and we might see other champions picking this item up soon.

Blade of the Ruined King

  • Cooldown is increased, and the damage is down. A very big nerf to this champion and a significant bash to many champions.

  • Maximum burn is reduced for melee champions, but increased for ranged champions. This will help some champions, but will negatively impact others.

Essence Reaver

  • Total AD is increased but at a cost increase.
