Rengar is getting nerfed... again.

He is a mana-less champ with a magic damage nuke+percentage heal+defense buff all on one easily spammed ability

It gave him way to much benefit and did need to be brought down a few pegs. That said, I would have been fine with just reducing the damage on it...the defense boost is kinda important for him.

Meaning if you want to do damage you actually have to focus on Q instead, but if you want tanky you go with W.

Keep the damage reduction, but let him keep the defense buff imo

He really needs that defensive buff

If you read this signature, then that meant that I had control of what you read for 5 SECONDS!!

Bad champ from the start.

Plus, we needed a new Eve after her rework.

That's a -70 damage nerf for AD Rengar and wtf @ the huge ass armor/mr nerf. Rengar is squishy as it is. That's a terrible overnerf :s

well it is pretty stupid that you can go AD rengar, max W and still out-trade almost any top laner

Well it is pretty stupid that you can go AD Ezreal, max W and still out-trade almost any bottom laner. o_o There are plenty of examples of AD champions that still max out AP scaling skills first because they simply offer better return on investment for your skill points. Your item build is hardly relevant to early laning anyway, I mean what it's difference between say double Doran's Blade or Kage's, Hexdrinker or Revolver and such? Rengar is a strong laner because he has stupid earlygame burst, built-in sustain and he's manaless.

They should buff the defensive aspect of it, though. Three seconds is already a terribly short duration on the defense steroid and then they're going to nerf it?

Lol except you can, a lot of popular bot laners have burst on their skills too and can simply dodge the Ezreal W because it's a line nuke and they just reduced the width and damage of the spell recently. Graves, Corki, and Sivir all do crazy burst damage even with their attack speed lowered, and sivir can spellshield it too.

no kidding hes getting nerfed, rengar was poorly designed from day one. ap rengar was ridiculous. DFG = guaranteed kill every time ult up, and stupid strong mana-less burst even without it. his mechanics are just silly too. his mechanics were just poorly thought out and his mechanics are stupid
