[Champion Abilities] Clarity!

For the sake of Clarity, I wanted to go through all of the champions and see if all of their passives and abilities were clear and provided as much information as possible to the player with more details rather than less. Here are my opinions and suggestions to improve clarity for each champion. Some might be unnecessary and you don't have to agree with me. This is with normal casts on (Quick/Smart cast off). I really hope a Rioter sees and considers the suggestions in this post. tl;dr Most champions need more information/detail on their tooltips and sometimes buff icons and visuals. {{champion:266}} - Aatrox's W could use a counter on the buff icon (like Annie/Sona passive) instead of an icon popping in/out all the time. {{champion:103}} - Ahri's passive tooltip should state how much she heals, by adding a flat number and the AP ratio {{champion:84}} - Akali's passive tooltip should state how much bonus dmg (in a number) and spellvamp (in a percent). W buff icon should have a timer dial so she knows exactly how long she has left before it disappears. {{champion:12}} - Alistar's passive tooltip should state how much damage and the duration in seconds, even if it is short. {{champion:32}} - Amumu's passive tooltip should state how much Magic Resist he reduces on his target and the duration in seconds. {{champion:34}} - Anivia's passive buff icon should have a timer counting down the 6 seconds. It should be similar to Aatrox's passive buff icon timer. Her Q tooltip should say how long/duration the enemies hit have movement speed reduced in seconds. Her W should have a buff icon with a timer dial since it lasts a static of 5 seconds. {{champion:1}} - Annie's R Tibbers could have a timer under his health bar for all to see. Also there should be an indication for Annie for how far she can be away from Tibbers before he teleports back to Annie's location. Either a tether between them that changes color, or a subtle range indicator for Tibbers as you are controlling him (with Alt+ right click or R/bind button), or an arrow that changes color from green to yellow to red, similar to Orianna and her ball. This should be applied regardless of making Tibbers walk away from Annie, or Annie skipping away from Tibbers. {{champion:22}} - Ashe's passive tooltip should say how many stacks she gets per second while not attacking, and the stacks number should update when she levels enough. Her E should have have a line skillshot range indicator and an AoE range indicator because it reveals in both a line as it flies and in an area where it lands. It should not be a target reticle. {{champion:268}} - Azir's passive tooltip should state the bonus attack speed from your cooldown reduction (it used to?). There should be a buff icon when he has a Disc of the Sun turret up until destroyed or times out. His E could use a buff icon that shows his shield's strength. His E should give a debuff icon on the enemy when he knocks them up. Azir's R should give a knock up debuff icon on enemies when they get hit by the cast. {{champion:53}} - Blitzcrank's passive buff icon should be visible when it is ready at the start of the game, not only when it is on cooldown and recharging, similar to Aatrox & Anivia. It should also have a timer on the buff icon. It should have a second buff icon indicating the shield strength when Mana Barrier activates. When he gets his ult, he should have a buff icon timer indicating when his passive bolt will go off (so he knows whether he's going to last-hit the ADC's minion or whatever) {{champion:63}} - Brand's W tooltip should say how long the delay is in seconds. {{champion:201}} - Braum seems good :) {{champion:51}} - Caitlyn's passive tooltip should state how many attacks until Headshot and should also state how much extra damage in a number to minions and Champions. How much dmg is 150%? 250%? Her W could have buff icon counter indicating how many traps are currently active (minor). Her E tooltip should say how many units Caitlyn is knocked back or at least a range indicator showing her where she will be knocked back to. {{champion:69}} - Cassiopeia's passive tooltip "poisoned" should be colored dark blue like it is in the other tooltips. It also doesn't say if I have any bonuses at level 1 which I should because it's a passive. Also, if she casts her Q outside of its range, I think there should be an indicator showing where it will land until she gets in range and casts it. {{champion:31}} - Cho'gath's passive tooltip should say how much hp/mana per unit killed. His Q tooltip should at least mention a delay like Brand's W/Veigar's W does. It should give the exact time of delay. {{champion:42}} - Corki's passive tooltip should give a number for true damage. {{champion:122}} - Darius' passive tooltip should say how much bleed damage per stack and how much movement speed he gets. {{champion:131}} - Diana's passive tooltip should say how much attack speed and the amount of damage on cleave, could use a buff icon/counter toward her cleave. Her W should have a range indicator and buff icon showing how much strength her shields are. {{champion:36}} - Dr. Mundo. This is actually pretty minor. I just don't understand why his W cost on the tooltip says health per "sec" while Amumu's W cost says mana per "second" {{champion:119}} - Draven's passive tooltip should state how much bonus gold he gets per adoration stack when he gets a kill. His Q tooltip should say that it readies a spinning axe and should say how long he has before he loses his spinning axe. Also should say something about the direction the axes will fly (in direction of Draven's movement or something). {{champion:60}} - Elise's passive tooltip should say how much HP/AD/Armor/MR spiderlings have, like Malzahar's passive about his voidling. Human W could have a buff timer icon until it explodes. Her Spider-Form E "Rappel" shows a green target reticle when hovering over an enemy champion instead of a red target reticle. Green represents/symbolizes an ally/friendly unit, red should indicate hostile/enemy units. {{champion:28}} - Evelynn's passive tooltip should state how much mana regen she gets every second/mp5. Her R shield should have a buff icon showing the strength like reworked Sion's. {{champion:81}} - Ezreal's E tooltip doesn't indicate how far the bolt travels/how close you have to be for the bolt to come out. {{champion:9}} - Fiddlesticks' enemies within range of passive get a debuff icon and visual under their feet from their perspective, but the Fiddlesticks player doesn't get any indication whether he is in range or not for his passive. Fiddlesticks should also be able to see a visual under enemies so that he knows they are being affected. Also, his W tooltip could say how much max damage when under the full duration (before MR). Also, his ult could use a silhouette/outline/border to show exactly how far his ult reaches (both for him/allies and enemies) {{champion:114}} - Fiora's ult could use indicator showing how close other enemy champs have to be in order for her to jump to them, perhaps similar to Master Yi's Q range indicator or Nami's W heal range indicator? {{champion:105}} - Fizz's E tooltip should say how long he goes untargetable, even if briefly. {{champion:3}} - Galio seems to be clear. {{champion:41}} - Gangplank is pretty clear. {{champion:86}} - Garen's passive tooltip at level 16 just says significantly, it should how how much it increases, if only as a percent. Also, he should have a buff icon for his passive so we know when he's healing or not? Put a timer on the icon while it is on cooldown or have it disappear and reappear when it's up but then that's Aatrox's W problem. {{champion:150}} - Gnar's passive tooltip should say how much Rage he gets from auto attacks or using mini abilities. Mini/mega Q should say what the cooldown would be if he catches it/picks it up in exact seconds, similar to Nautilus' Q tooltip. {{champion:79}} - Gragas' W tooltip should say how much time he has to use his enhanced auto attack. His E tooltip says he damages in an area but it doesn't have indicator for damaging in an area. {{champion:104}} - Graves' Q tooltip should say how much maximum damage like Darius' ult tooltip does. His W should have a buff icon timer because it lasts for 4 seconds. His R should have cone indicator for splash damage at the end of the line indicator in case he shoots it for distance and doesn't hit anything with the initial shot. {{champion:120}} - Hecarim's W should have a better visual to see whole area, it's hard to see the where it ends. His E tooltip should say how much movement speed in total he gets, whether as a number or a percent. {{champion:74}} - Heimerdinger is surprising clear. {{champion:39}} - Irelia is too. {{champion:40}} - Janna's Q should give enemies a debuff icon timer when knocked up.Her E buff icon tooltip says how much exact damage shield absorbs but it doesn't say how much bonus AD it gives. Perhaps the buff icon itself can show how much damage can be absorbed, similar to reworked Sion's W shield buff icon. {{champion:59}} - Jarvan IV's passive should have a visual on/under a unit to show when a unit cannot proc his passive and should have a timer, similar to Nautilus' passive/Yasuo's E. His W shield buff icon should have a counter for each nearby enemy champion and/or say how big the shield is like Janna's E or reworked Sion's W buff icon. His E buff icon should have a timer (nice to know how long I have to Q/knock up before it times out). {{champion:24}} - Jax's W tooltip should say how long he has before losing his empowered attack. Also when he gets his ult, he should get a buff icon counting up to the 3 consecutive attacks for bonus magic damage. {{champion:126}} - Jayce's Mercury Cannon Q range indicator should extend when it's over Acceleration Gate to show the player it gets extra range and exactly how much further his Q will go if shot through the gate (as well as a wider area). {{champion:222}} - Jinx seems pretty clear. {{champion:43}} - Karma's W should have a buff icon timer for it's 2 second duration. Her E should give a shield buff icon showing the strength of the shield like reworked Sion's. Same with Mantra E for her and her allies. {{champion:30}} - Karthus' W wall should have a buff icon timer/dial during its duration. {{champion:38}} - Kassadin's Q could have a buff icon showing the strength of the magic shield similar to reworked Sion's.. W tooltip should say how much time he has to use his enhanced auto attack. His E should have range indicator/radius showing how close/far his vicinity is. After extensive testing, his "vicinity" is actually quite far. {{champion:55}} - Katarina's E target reticle should be red when hovering/used on an enemy, not green. Green represents/symbolizes an ally/friendly unit, red should indicate hostile/enemy units. {{champion:10}} - Kayle too. {{champion:85}} - Kennen's passive tooltip should say how much of a diminished effect his stun would have. His W tooltip could have an actual number for the bonus damage = 40% AD. {{champion:121}} - Kha'Zix is clear. {{champion:96}} - Kog'Maw's passive tooltip should state that he gains movement speed and how much (flat or percent). Also someone else came up with this idea and I want to reiterate for emphasis, please put some kind of indication so that both Kog'Maw and his enemies know if they will be caught in the explosion. It is an AoE and it deals true damage so it's a big deal. Also, his R tooltip should say how much of a delay (0.6 seconds). {{champion:7}} - LeBlanc's passive should have a buff icon when it is ready and be on a timer when it's on cooldown, like Aatrox's passive does. Also when her passive triggers, there should be a buff icon timer for the Mirror Image until it times out or dies. The mirror Image could have a timer on it that is visible only to LeBlanc. {{champion:64}} - Lee Sin should have a buff timer icon whenever he uses Q, W, or E for the first time showing he CAN cast it again (when permitted) and have a 3 second timer on the buff icon. His W should give him and his target (if ally champion) a shield buff icon that shows the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:89}} - Leona is clear. {{champion:127}} - Lissandra's passive buff icon should show up at the start of the game before you cast your first spell, and could use a timer on the buff icon along with the timer on the action bar. Her E buff icon comes up but no timer showing how long I have to reactivate E, it should have a timer. R tooltip on enemy cast should state that it slows them and give a percent. {{champion:236}} - Lucian's good. {{champion:117}} - Lulu's E buff icon could say how much shield strength like reworked Sion's. {{champion:99}} - Lux's W buff icon could say how much shield strength like reworked Sion's. {{champion:54}} - Malphite's passive buff icon should say how much damage the shield can take, similar to reworked Sion's W shield. His W tooltip should give a flat AD that he does to nearby enemies since it's only a fraction of his total AD, and it could give a flat number of armor/AD when he activates W. {{champion:90}} - Malzahar should have a buff icon timer when he has a voidling out and/or should have a timer on the voidling itself (it lasts 21 seconds). His Q tooltip should say how short/long the delay is in seconds, like Karthus' Q tooltip does. His E should give an indictor how far it can jump or the target it will jump onto or something so he and his enemies know if his E will jump onto them or not. {{champion:57}} - Maokai's passive should have a range indicator, similar to clarity for Kassadin's E. His E saplings should each have a timer and a range visible to both himself/teammates as well as the enemy team. Currently, there's no way to know how close you can get without getting sapling aggro. {{champion:11}} - Master Yi is fine. {{champion:21}} - Miss Fortune's passive movement speed buff icon disappears when I think that it should just be grayed out or have a timer on it. Her E debuff icon on enemies doesn't spiral reset since it's supposed to keep refreshing. Her R tooltip should say how much damage each bullet does and maybe could say the maximum damage possible if all bullets hit. {{champion:82}} - Mordekaiser's passive should give a shield buff icon whenever he does damage with his abilities that shows the strength of his shield (although he already has a shield bar that somewhat helps). Q tooltip should say how long he has to do empowered attack. Also, when he enslaves a soul with his ult, the debuff icon (when clicked on enslaved enemy) says "1/5" of target's AD/AP instead of 20%. {{champion:25}} - Morgana's W could have a buff timer icon. Morgana's E could have a buff icon on whom she shields that shows the strength of the magic shield similar to reworked Sion's.. Once the shield's gone, the CC immunity is gone. {{champion:267}} - Nami's R wave should have a special visual based on distance traveled so enemy players know if they are gonna get slowed by 2 seconds or 4 seconds or anywhere in between. Perhaps put something similar on the range indicator itself for Nami. {{champion:75}} - Nasus' Q tooltip could say how long he has before empowered attack ends. Also, his R tooltip should say how much magic damage is converted into bonus AD. {{champion:111}} - Nautilus' W should have a shield buff icon showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:76}} - Nidalee's passive prowl buff icon could use a timer dial before disappearing. Her human W traps could use timers like Stealth Wards do (they last 2 mins). {{champion:56}} - Nocturne's passive tooltip should say how much damage and heal in a number. If they are separate numbers then give separate numbers. Also his passive should have a range indicator so he knows how wide the area around him. His W should also have a 2 second timer for himself, not only for the enemy to see. His W should have a shield buff icon showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:20}} - Nunu should have a buff timer icon when I have wolf buff (from his Q Consume), and kill a unit for extra movement speed for 3 seconds. And his Q tooltip is all wrong for the New Summoner's Rift Update. {{champion:2}} - Olaf is good. {{champion:61}} - Orianna's E should have a shield buff icon whomever she shields that shows the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:80}} - Pantheon is clear. {{champion:78}} - Poppy's Q tooltip should say how long she has before her empowered attack ends. {{champion:133}} - Quinn's passive should have a buff icon timer for the 4.5 sec when an enemy/monster is vulnerable. Her W should have a 2 second buff timer icon when activated. {{champion:33}} - Rammus's R tooltip could say how much damage it does maximum after the whole 8 seconds. {{champion:58}} - Renekton's W tooltip should say how long he has before his empowered attack/stun disappears. {{champion:107}} - Rengar's passive tooltip should say how far he can leap within X units (like Nidalee). Ferocity W tooltip should say how much bonus armor/mr, just like the normal W tooltip does. His R should have a buff icon timer showing how long until he will go stealth, longer time when taking damage. (See also Twitch's Q). {{champion:92}} - Riven's passive tooltip could say how long she has until she loses empowered attack. Her E should have a shield buff icon showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. Her R should say how much range she gains on her auto attacks and damaging spells. {{champion:68}} - Rumble's passive tooltip should say the rate he loses the heat (n heat/second). His Q tooltip should say how much damage he does PER second, then give the total for 3 seconds. He may not be damaging with his Q the entire 3 seconds so it's nice to know how much damage per tick. His W should have a shield buff icon showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:13}} - Ryze is clear. {{champion:113}} - Sejuani's W should have a buff icon timer for 1st basic attack before she starts swinging her flail. Her R could have a circle range indicator or something to show the area of the slow, similar to Anivia's new Q clarity for her stun explosion. {{champion:35}} - Shaco's R tooltip should say he vanishes for 0.5 seconds, not "briefly". It also should say it deals half damage to turrets/inhibitors. R should have a buff icon timer like Annie & Mordekaiser do with their ult pets and possibly a timer on the clone itself only visible to Shaco. {{champion:98}} - Shen's passive should have a buff icon when it's ready. His W and R should have a shield buff icon showing the shield strength for both himself and his ally that he ulted. {{champion:102}} - Shyvana's clear. {{champion:27}} - Singed's W debuff icon on enemies should have quick spiraling timers for refreshing the slow. {{champion:14}} - Sion's currently being reworked. {{champion:15}} - Sivir is clear. {{champion:72}} - Skarner's W should have a shield buff icon showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:37}} - Sona's Q tooltip could give an actual number for the bonus powerchord damage. Her W should give a shield buff icon for herself and the allies she tagged with her W aura showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. Her E tooltip should say how long she gets her movement speed bonus/how long it will decay in seconds. {{champion:16}} - Soraka's passive should have a range indicator on screen AND the minimap when you hover over it on the action bar (it used to?). Her W tooltip should indicate how much health the cost is as a number (Aatrox's & Zac's abilities do and they use current % health). {{champion:50}} - Swain's W tooltip should say how long the delay is in seconds. His R should have a range indicator. His R should have a mana cost on the action bar icon showing how much mana it costs, similar to Kassadin's & Kog'Maw's R icon. {{champion:134}} - Syndra's passive/QWER ability tooltips should say when she has extra effect on their respective ability tooltips and/or have a buff icon that shows when and which abilities have a bonus effect and what the effect is, just like Viktor and his augments. Her W tooltip should say how much time she has to throw a minion/monster. Her E/balls should have a range indicator showing how far and where the balls will go and stop. {{champion:91}} - Talon's passive tooltip could give an exact number of total damage to slowed/stunned/immobilized/suppressed enemies. Q tooltip should say how long he has to do his empowered attack. {{champion:44}} - Taric is straightforward and clear. {{champion:17}} - Teemo's R tooltip should say that the multiple mushroom damage don't stack. {{champion:412}} - Thresh passive should have a subtle range indicator showing how close/far he needs to be to reach the souls. Sometimes they are barely in/out of reach in enemy turret. His W should have a shield buff icon for him and his tagged ally showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:18}} - Tristana's passive tooltip should say the range increases by 9 with each level. Would like to know why her range goes up and when it does. {{champion:48}} - Trundle's Q tooltip should say how much the enemy is slowed. It should have a buff timer icon letting you know how long you have to use his empowered attack. {{champion:23}} - Tryndamere passive could use a buff icon timer indicating how long he has before he starts to lose fury within 8 seconds. {{champion:4}} - Twisted Fate's R tooltip should say reactivate/press again and click target area he wants to teleport to (inside the range indicator of course). {{champion:29}} - Twitch's Q should have a buff timer icon for the 1.5 seconds (or 6 seconds if taking damage) before he goes stealth (See also Rengar ult). Right now he doesn't know when he'll go stealth while being attacked. His E tooltip could say how much maximum damage is when at 6 stacks of passive Deadly Venom. {{champion:77}} - Udyr's Q tooltip should say how long he has before the empowered attack expires. His W buff icon for shield should have a number showing its strength similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:6}} - Urgot's W buff icon should have a shield strength number similar to reworked Sion's. {{champion:110}} - Varus' Q tooltip should say how much movement speed he loses in a percent/time ratio (- movement speed %/second). His Ult should have a range indicator for himself and enemies so they know if they are in range of corruption from ally hit. It has a chain visual if they are close enough but Varus nor his enemies know if they are too close to each other for the corruption to spread or not. {{champion:67}} - Vayne's passive should have a buff icon when triggered. Sometimes she's not in range of an enemy champion or she is not facing them so a buff icon could be useful. Her Q tooltip should state that she tumbles/rolls in the direction of your cursor. {{champion:45}} - Veigar is clear. {{champion:161}} - Vel'Koz's Q range indicator should have arrows at the end pointing which way the split bolts will go (before you cast it). His W tooltip should say how long of a delay in seconds. Same with his E tooltip. His R tooltip should say how much damage per tick (per second?) and keep the total damage with it. {{champion:254}} - Vi's passive could use a buff icon with a shield strength number similar to reworked Sion's. Her E tooltip should say how long before she loses her empowered attack. {{champion:112}} - Viktor's Q tooltip should say how long he has to use his empowered attack. His Q should also have a shield buff icon showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. His E tooltip for his augment possibly could say how long the delay is before explosion. {{champion:8}} - Vladimir's E icon should have a HP cost when it keeps getting stacks, similar to Kassadin & Kog'Maw's mana cost on their R icon, or a buff icon that does that. {{champion:106}} - Volibear's passive could have a buff icon showing it's ready then go on timer/dial when it's on cooldown. Currently, the icon only shows up (without a timer) when his passive is unavailable then disappears when it's available. His W could have another buff icon when he reaches 3 stacks indicating when the W active is ready. If he uses W active while still attacking, the W active icon can disappear but still have the 3 stack icon from the W passive refreshing with each attack. His R tooltip maybe shouldn't say "channels" in case it might confuse people. Also it should say "Bonus" magic damage so players know his ult damage doesn't replace his basic attack damage but deals bonus damage with it. {{champion:19}} - Warwick's W & E buff icons don't match the ability icon. Not sure if this is intended. {{champion:62}} - Wukong's Q tooltip should say how long he has before losing his empowered attack. His R tooltip should say how long he knocks up enemies for in seconds. Also, it should say how much movement speed it ramps up to. His enemies should have a debuff icon/timer when knocked up by his ult. {{champion:101}} - Xerath's Q tooltip should say how much movement speed he loses in a percent/time ratio (- movement speed %/second). His R tooltip should add that it should be pressed in order to fire an Arcane Barrage. {{champion:5}} - Xin Zhao's Q tooltip should say how long he has before he loses his empowered attack. it should have a buff counter icon counting toward the knockup on 3rd attack. There should also be a visual on the target similar to Kennen's passive or Vi's W or Varus' W stacks. His W should have a buff icon counter counting toward the 3rd attack heal from his W passive. {{champion:157}} - Yasuo's Q tooltip should say that the ability will be cast in the direction of your cursor. Also, possibly a knocked up debuff icon/timer for the enemy if airborne from his Q. {{champion:83}} - Yorick's passive should have a buff icon showing the shield strength similar to reworked Sion's. His Q tooltip should say how long he has before losing his empowered attack. {{champion:154}} - Zac's passive could have a buff icon indicating when it is ready, and it can have a timer/dial when on cooldown. The buff icon only appears after it's been used once, it should appear even at the start of the game. It should also say how long bloblets remain before disappearing on their own. Also, bloblets should have a timer bar on them. When he knocks up with his R, his enemies get a buff icon for the knock up but Zac can't see it when he clicks on them. {{champion:238}} - Zed's passive should have a visual for both Zed & his enemy to see under/on his target showing that he can't use his passive again on them, similar to Yasuo's E. {{champion:115}} - Ziggs' passive should have a buff icon indicating when it's ready before first use and should have a buff icon timer while on cooldown. His Q tooltip should say how many times the bomb bounces and/or that it explodes when it lands after the 2nd bounce. It should also say that the bomb bounces farther the further it is thrown. Also, he should have a range indicator showing where the bounces will land, similar to Heimerdinger's ulted/upgraded E. The circle range indicator isn't actually the furthest limit that the bomb can go. His E should have a buff icon timer showing Ziggs how much time the mines have left before disappearing, and the mines should have a visual when they are about to disappear such as faster blinking or changing colors. {{champion:26}} - Zilean's Q tooltip should say that any additional bombs placed on a unit that already has a bomb on it will cause the first bomb to detonate. {{champion:143}} - Zyra's passive tooltip should say it shoots toward the direction of your cursor. Her W seeds could have a 30 second timer just like her plants do for 10 seconds. Special thanks to blaro247 for his big help!
