So the new patch is here and I tried Maokai...
What on is this? It is literally worse than any job Riot ever done.
That is the small version.
I'll start with good stuff. The really good stuff.
E - Sapling toss is awesome as main ability instead of Q - Arcane Smash. E travel time is great
Q - Bramble Smash is awesome Disrupts the enemy so hard I can't even compare to any other skill.
R - Nature's Grasp is a phenomenal concept
Passive is ok. It does its job just right.
Now the bad parts:
- E no longer deals Area damage on landing. You are depended on the stupidest pet AI that I've ever seen.
- W low range and painful travel time for 1 sec root? rly? I rather have a long range even slower W that slows for 50% for 2 sec. or just skip the root and let me Q my target in the face fast. Like a mini Lee Q-R combo.
- R travel time is painfully slow... Is is an engage? A disengage? If it is a disengage why is it stop after first champion hit which will be a tank? Why is this have such a high cooldown if Vengeful Maelstrom (old R) had 60/50/40 CD? The whole ultimate makers no sense. In a game where you try to "answer" lightning fast engages you supposed to use... that?
I don't think this is by any means meant to be the final version of the champion. The sluggish useage and the worthlessness remind me of old Sion as AD.
