Nerf on tear

So what's the nerf on tear? Is it gonna make Ryze not as powerful? and who else possibly

I can't remember exactly what the current iteration on the PBE is, but there was a slight stacking speed change on Tear and Manamune, I think it worked out overall to be a bit of a nerf. Archangel's Staff still stacks quickly. So a bit more incentive to upgrade Tear to AA faster on Ryze, but I don't know if that nerf is even still planned.

The more significant change is that mana-free transformations like Jayce and Nidalee R will no longer stack Tear.

Yeah, there were several iterations of changes, like +3 mana instead of +4, max 2 stacks every 8 seconds, then max 2 stacks every 6 seconds, so we'll have to wait to see exactly what it ends up as

Meh, essentially you get at most 2 charges per 8 seconds instead of 1 every 3 seconds, and the current value/charge rate of tear is being kept for Dominion and ARAM.
(they have their own map-specific versions, thats why there were so many variants)

I mean you get +1 more mana per charge, but it's essentially lowering the charge rate by 30%.

But some champs like Karthus and Ryze already ignore the cooldown don't they?

apparently the way the item is described and the way it stacks are different,

you can stack it twice in the 3 seconds, but not more
