: Swain Laning Feeback
Heyo Folks, Just chiming in. Have to agree with OP on much of this. Honestly, I am thinking that more could be done with this. In a different thread, I mentioned that there might be a way to actually make these abilities worth it by rewarding Swain for early successes with his stacks. What if W tracked the number of soul fragments and for every 15 stacks (just an example), the AoE grew a little bit? And what if the E tracked the soul fragments so that for every 25 stacks the explosion would grow in size? This way, if Swain can start stacking, he will later on be able to more consistently keep stacking. That turns the tiny amount of health gained (which honestly should probably be tuned a bit, maybe give 3 AP for every 5 Soul Fragments?) into a bigger win later on. What do you folks think? Regards, Tarcathos
: Swain Feedback
Heyo Folks, Just chiming in. Had a couple of games with him on the PBE and I have to say...very underwhelming. While the stacks are certainly nice, I really feel that the nerfs that were tossed in with this mini rework are very suboptimal. I am wondering if there isn't some way that Riot could really make successfully stacking with Swain more robust and interesting. I really enjoyed the idea that getting so many stack might equate to some sort of larger bonus. For instance, what if for every 15 Stacks, Visions of Empire's AoE got incrementally larger? And lets say for every 25 stacks the E explosion became slightly larger? That way, as you start to really land the CC (or your allies do), you can become better at actually collecting the stacks needed for the health gain to be useful. I like the idea that allowing Swains abilities to become more powerful as he feeds the demon. Not just a tiny amount of extra health. What do you all think? Regards, Tarcathos
: Marksman and AD Itemization Changes coming to PBE shortly
Just letting you folks know from a really bronzie perspective.... Right now on the PBE, it feels AWFUL to play ADC. Even with the Champions I (used to) feel completely comfortable with, I now feel like there is nothing I can do. If this is the shape of the impending meta, then it is going to be an assassins paradise once more. It takes so much more time to get to a second or third item now that by the time the team fights are starting, I can't do much but contribute my corpse to the battlefield. Even Champions like {{champion:202}} who should be able to really pump out some damage seem like they are being relegated to being supports with roots and slows. I am aware that "competent" players will surely do just fine higher up the ranked ladder. However, for those of us who play for the fun of it and will not likely rise very high, this just completely destroys any desire to play in the ADC/Marksman role. Perhaps consider toning down some of the nerfs on the Marksman role or at the very least shifting some of their power?

: > Since I didn't see a post that encapsulates this, lets chat about the Rengar Rework Revert You mean [this one](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/BrApFwN5-rengar-changes-feedback-thread)? :x Always be sure to check the individual subboards; they have other stickies than the homepage. Riot made this change a few years ago because the homepage would be cluttered with stickies. All important things have bugs or feedback threads, and they're *within* the subboards so one needs to manually check. Tad confusing in the beginning, but becomes second nature over time. :>
Heya, I did notice the sticky just after I posted. What I did note however is that the sticky seems to be mostly referencing a conversation on numbers and whatnot. I still wonder if an experiance thread might not be useful, but I may go back and re encapsulate my thoughts this afternoon if and when I get some more time. Thanks for the heads up, and see you on the Rift!

: [Visual] Grey Bars
I just played a game as the Kench as well, and I couldn't see the grey health.
: I have tested the Soul Harvest and Phase Rush. Hadn't tried Predator yet....but the Runes got knocked off the PBE, so I am waiting for them to return to continue testing :) The trick of it is, I feel like the Predator and Phase Rush don't adequately play to Jhin's Long range. Soul Harvest felt pretty ok. However, when compared to the overwhelming power of the Lucian Press the Attack madness...I just couldn't seem to find traction. I suppose the better part of the question is how do we take these somewhat unique champs and keep up with some of the beasts I am seeing.
Just reiterating: I am not the best player...by any means! But, I do note that from my perspective, a few ADC's at the very least have shot WAY past the rest courtesy of the new Precision Runes.
: Actually, I find that many of the runes fit well with unique playstyles. Have you considered Predator, Soul Harvest, or Phase Rush on Jhin?

: Getting into games without Runes
Heya Keeper Arcanus, Just had this incident happen to me in game. Started up a match only to find out I had the old runes and masteries for my support Thresh game. Then, as soon as we loaded in, my client kept telling me their was an issue where I wasn't connected to the network and to reconnect. Afterwards, I took a look at my summoner profile, and sure enough I don't have access to Runes reforged. Just blank pages of runes and the old masteries. However, the game wanted to allow me to put up to 33 points into masteries rather than 30 (because me pbe account is level 33). This caused a string of errors when I tried to save indicating the client couldn't save my mastery pages. That is as much info as I have at the moment. Hope it helps you folks. Keep up the awesome work!
