: Mana changes coming to PBE today
Did you consider how this will effect mage supports? {{champion:101}} 1: We already make less gold so building mana items is harder. 2: We do not get blue buff to offset this. 3: Utility supports already out mana us. These changes are not good, I respect what you are trying to do but this is not the way to do it. When you are trying to adjust a role you need to make sure you are not ruining other roles to do it. Do not even test these changes they are not a good idea. I main support Xerath and these changes will ruin him.
: GA and Banshee's should be made to not be particularly viable lane rush items if they're going to be Healthy, or at least have obvious tradeoffs to them. Most feedback today seems to suggest the tradeoffs aren't there yet. Out of curiosity, in what ways do you think GA is meaningfully different from Zhonya's in this regard? Thanks for the feedback.
Also my friend just pointed out the insane low CD late game on BV, he is going to build it on backline supports since it has cdr, and AP and will make him invulnerable to assassinations. The only way the new BV will be balanced is if it gets the Zhonya treatment of a 2 min cooldown and even then it will be strong and you will need to touch up assassins.

Zhonya's was one item for AP mids almost exclusively. Yes people would build it to shut down assassins but the assassins could roam top or bot or invade jungle for plays however if GA is an effective early item for marksmen or AD jungles/tops then said mid lane assassin has no one to effectively make a play on.
: Midseason Durability Feedback
AP mid's/top's being able to build Banshee's Veil without trading much damage for it will allow them to build it much sooner without being punished for it in team fight damage thus making lanning against AP assassins insanely easy. Ad mid/top/marksmen being able to build GA without losing much damage from a regular build will allow them to build it into assassins early thus killing assassins early/mid game advantages which is why people play them. Basically you are doing a massive nerf to assassins which will push them out of play. I understand and appreciate you not wanting tanks to build GA's but find another way don't ruin assassin playstyle it will be bad for the overall health of the game as you will spend the next few weeks trying to balance all of them to the new item meta.
