Upcoming PBE Zed tweak

Reduce the CD to something like 16/15/14/13/12 seconds. CD is no longer reduced by hitting anything. CD on Living Shadow resets on champion kill.

This slows his laning down, like they wanted, and allows Zed to do exactly what he's supposed to do. Kill someone and GTFO. Problem solved.

I have to say I do kinda like this change.

Its still a pretty big nerf, 4 seconds less of at lvl5 is still quite worse than what he used to get, 2 seconds at lvl5 is a joke, make it 18-12 and then we can talk.

I can confidently say that this will not affect my Zed play at all. One W is all I need to clear a full wave

Clearing the wave itself isn't the issue, its being unable to lower the CD of your W afterward. Currently you can throw your W out with pretty much no risk because a few shadow slashes later and its off CD. After the nerf if you do, you leave yourself without your shadow for a long period of time, leaving yourself susceptible to ganks with no escape. Thus, you either have to play more passively to prevent this or risk getting blown up by the enemy jungler.

See my topic on Zed. It won't affect him nearly as hard now

wouldn't call this a change
it's much more of a nerf than a buff
