If you read this signature, then that meant that I had control of what you read for 5 SECONDS!!

Rushed by everyone because it gives awesome gold efficient combat stats on top of making you manaless.

Stats were way too good for the cost and passive.

Yeah, I fine with the nerfs, you know an item offers too much when people are still building vs. an all AD team.
And this would be in the LCS and stuff.

Even if they are all AD and have plenty of heals the other team would usually still ignore morellonomicon, was sad to see.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

they should have just increased its price to 3000 and left its stats alone.

I think it's appropriate that the "offensive" chalice item has lower MR.

Nah, I usually get chalice and upgrade it as my 5th item. This really doesn't affect me, whereas a price increase would suck.

Because Riot really doesn't like magic resistance.

im starting to think voidgolem is right about riot being obsessed with mages


they keep nerfing MR items and galio has been in a terrible place for ages with the biggest help being giving him MR per level (which while really nice, is still only a step in the right direction and not a fix entirely)

They nerfed mage items that provide magic resist as well so it's just more they don't want anyone having magic resist, even other mages.
