Surprisingly tame Zed nerfs, was expecting him to be neutered to oblivion. Dat new Zyra skin is looking good too.

Not really, but i certainly expected him to be bombarded with nerfs since minute 1 of a new patch.

Not entirely sure how this affects Zed. Does this mean he'll be forced to use his W shadow instead of just being able to use his ult shadow?

I don't quite understand it either.

EDIT:

So the shadow spawns earlier, and it's from your casting spot.

Seems like it'l be harder to land Q's, very different to land W's, and it'll give him an easier escape.

From melee range it won't make a difference,

RIP in peace Kassadin.

How dare the Gods work against me! I don't remember giving them permission.

The lack of a shadow right on top of a target from R should reduce Zeds burst he can do in one ult combo. Agreed though that chances are good that Zed will be getting more changes.

Kassadin's got a damage nerf. Not surprising. The rift walk bonus damage nerf I can see is to stop him from moving from target to target cleaning house.

Hope that Kass R won't be finalized, as "Void stacks" seems really bad. They worked so hard to make him balanced in S2 and then they're throwing that all away. Better give him something else, especially with nerfed Q and no magic resist.

I'm honestly astounded that they're BUFFING Kassadin.
Now, I'm not a Kass main, but those look like buffs to me. They're lowering the Q's lategame base damage, but they're buffing it's silence duration early game, without lowering the duration lategame (only loses 0.1 seconds overall at max rank, that's pretty insignificant, imo).
They're also lowering the mana cost for Q

With his ultimate, it looks like they're lowering the initial burst a bit, but then adding that damage back on with multiple rift hits. Besides which, they're boosting the base damages even if they are nerfing the ap ratio on the first hit.

Why is it that Reality constantly ignores my imagination? It can't possibly like itself the way it is....
