His lane before he gets Athene's is actually stronger now, though. >_>


He is pretty useless before he gets some mana regen going though


So he survives better pre-chalice, is better post-chalice, and worse between getting Athene's and level 12.

Oh no. The vicious nerfing.

There is no difference pre-chalice because you aren't looking to fight and much worse laning phase overall.

To a champion that his only value is counter picking someone and taking out fed people that is quite vicious.

By level 12 his mres per level makes up the difference, after that he's stronger than before. Do you know what viciously means? Or nerf?


Considering Athene's is the first item you build you should have it way before level 12 and by the time you are level 12 the MR isn't really as much of a big deal as it is early on in the laning phase. And I haven't even mentioned the mana regen aspect of it yet.

Basically loses a ton of laning power


A ton? You can tone down the hyperbole, it's really not that big of a deal. We're talking like single digit, low double digit numbers here, Galio's got swag, he'll live.

I'm sorry you hold these opinions.
