PBE UPdate: Darius Nerf

#31TomorrowDogPosted 2/19/2013 7:47:34 PM
The text has always said "The cooldown is refreshed if Noxian Guillotine kills the target." But in reality it still refreshes no matter what killed the target, be it bleed or another person, if it happens during the animation. So you can still get it refreshed on assist if its timed right.

I believe the way the game considers this is that the ability is canceled and the cooldown isn't set-off. Probably exactly like Skarner if he loses vision/targetability in the brief cast-time of his ultimate. You hear his ultimate go off but you don't get the effect and you can still cast it.

How is this really a nerf to Darius? All I see is he will have 12 seconds to use his ult again before it goes on cooldown, so he can still kill mult champs with it in a teamfight.

Unless i am not understanding something?

Imagine how many more deaths would be caused by stupidity if everyone always agreed with each other.

laning power

IF you killed eachother during laning, but he got his refresh from ulting you before he did he would be able to all in again while you are still on cd.

I suppose it also changes his dynamic in between teamfights, because now it will be on cd even if you penta dunk in the last fight.

It really isn't that massive of a change

Skirmish breaks out, Darius ults for kill

Teamfight breaks out 50 sec later, Darius has no ultimate

Lol, I kind of wish they kept the %max AD heal they had on it instead of simply adding lifesteal and then increasing the price again.

Darius
Instead of resetting if it kills an opponent, Noxian Guillotine ( R ) is now able to be recast for 12 seconds after killing an opponent.
Noxian Guillotine ( R ) cooldown increased to 120/100/80 from 100/90/80.

The CD increase was unnecessary with the first change IMO.

but the first change is a great change to make.

The reason Darius is stupid isn't his ult, it's his passive.

I feel like this will actually make some Darius players play smarter and better. You can now Ulti as soon as you have 5 stacks in a landing trade, rather than trying to keep them close to you long enough to execute.

Granted it's probably best to just spike the end sot they can't run away, but it's a little bit of variety instead of HAVING to save it. Makes it more like Cho'Gath's Nom.
