What. Flail has no meaningful damage even with a full AP build LOL. It was actually Q=Damage, W=Utility and E=Control since the mini-pull+slow was actually serving as CC and not his Q most of the time.
1. Flail is sejuani 2. They are just moving the passive from Q, to E. I dont really understand how this will affect his gameplay at all, please explain.
1. Sweeping Scythe* my bad, you got what I meant though :D
2. To keep Thresh being a factor during laning phase, you were getting both control and a bit of damage through leveling Q. His notoriety during laning phase will be brought down a lot just because E is a really, really bad skill, and doesn't even match up to other support's stuns and slows. It's actually a nerf because a lower CD on Q offered better chances to land that said passive than your E will.
You will now pretty much have to double Q to get in range and actually do some damage through your leveled E. Or risk not doing damage at all and lvl up Q like before, turning you into a lantern thrower.
