Crystal Slash
-Mana cost reduced from 20/22/24/26/28 to 16/18/20/22/24
-When target is hit, applies an attack speed buff for 5s that stacks up to 3 times 4/5/6/7/8
-Slow removed from Crystal Slash (moved to Fracture)

-Attack speed component removed
-Cooldown lowered from 18s to 14s
-Max movepseed increased from 15/17/19/21/23 to 24/28/32/36/40 and ramps up over 3s
-Duration remains at 6s
-Shield value increased from 70/115/160/205/250 to 80/135/190/245/300
-Shield AP ratio increased from 0.6 to 0.8

-Mana cost reduced from 50/55/60/65/70 to 30/35/40/45/50

Do you have any info on how this is different from his changes that went on pbe for a day or two several weeks ago? They look the same but I thought he was removed because they wanted to rework his rework before testing the rework.

Again with this.

It's a substantial buff across the board and no longer makes IBG redundant. Permaslow was ultimately holding him back. Now we get a champ with good stats and abilities and permaslow.

This looks like a good improvement. I don't see what the complaining is about. Land that E and W in and get those IBG/Triforce procs going. They still won't get away.
