New item preview: Tear of the Goddes/AAS/ Seraph's Embrace

OMG...This is too OP on Singed...seriously. He'll cap this thing off so quick with his poison trail. Not to mention the HP he'll get from the mana AND the damage he'll get from other mana items he buys to further increase his HP. AND he gets an amazing shield. Dude...

Characters like Anivia and Karthus who were already excellent with Tear of the Goddess now have additional ways to trigger it, while some characters like Singed and Ashe will have a newfound ability to trigger Tear of the Goddess from their toggled abilities, opening up new item paths for those characters.

....that manamune ashe is almost as OP as the ones who rush ionic spark


Except they are changing Manamune and giving it some sort of evolved form as well, so we have no idea what the final items will look like.

Honestly, mana-heavy AD carries (or just AD carries in general) need new build paths, because building the exact same thing every game gets very, very boring. Im hoping these changes will give carries like MF, Ezreal, Ashe, etc new build paths to make their gameplay more interesting.

Would this count as a Ryze nerf?


I think it's more of a trade-off, really.

This is fact and cannot be disputed.

EDIT: Nevermind, looks like the final item still has 1k mana.


Not to mention that it has a shield that gets stronger with mana; if anything it's a ryze buff. That Ryze sporting 150 armor/mr just got another 750-1000 health you have to try to blow through. So good luck with that.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

UNIQUE Active: Drains 25% of your current mana to shield yourself for an equal amount for 2.5 seconds - 120 second cooldown.

Basically, as the item already gives 1000 mana, and most champs naturally have like 1k mana, this is a free 500 shield at minimum, probably more like 750 on the champs you are actually buying this on.

750 free health, on an AP caster; that is more typically squishy because they itemized for mana. This is AMAZING.

Yeah the new itemization choices are interesting and it would be interesting to see how it pans out vs traditional builds like IE rushing.

Indirect Manamune buff?

Awesome.

Manashield for Singed/Karthus/Anyone with an RoA? Not awesome.

But if other items they introduce are as good...
