Continue reading to see the tentative S3 version of Eleisa's Miracle, as well as a smidgeon of information about the fate of other tenacity items.
Here is Xypherous presenting the new version, sans tenacity and loaded with a clever new passive.
"Tentative Stats (In Testing)That's right, an item that grants you a permanent passive. It's the little item that keeps on giving!
Eleisa's Miracle (1175 Gold)
+10 Health per 5 seconds
+15 Mana per 5 seconds
Unique Passive - Aid: Your Heal, Clairvoyance and Revive cooldowns are reduced by 20%
Unique Passive: If you gain 3 levels while holding Eleisa's Miracle, you gain 10 HP/5, 15 MP/5 and the Aid Passive permanently and the item disappears from your inventory.
Hopefully it'll be interesting on Dominion/Murderbridge and Supports - while also indirectly giving supports an extra item slot to work with. It's probably terrible but something I wanted to try."
He also pointed out that one could not simply purchase an EM, level three times gaining the passive, then repeat to stack the effects.
"Unique Passives with the same name don't stack, regardless of how you acquired the passive - so the "perma" miracle and the inventory miracle don't stack with each other.For those curious if we'll see even more items that boost summoner spells, he says:
Nor can you buy & level another miracle and have that disappear, the other one will simply stick around in your inventory uselessly."
"There are three other summoner spells that get a paired item to "boost" them"
What about the other Tenacity Items?
Xypherous also mentioned his plans for the other tenacity items, Moonflair Spellblade and Cloak and Dagger.
"The current plan is to pull those for now. We had an interesting Spellblade variant that was neat - but it needed *a lot* more work before it goes live.
My current line of thought on Tenacity items is that - you really don't need an alternative to Tenacity items in a lot of cases. Tenacity isn't the right solution on *a lot* of champion roles. Tenacity, for example, isn't really all that helpful on carries who need something a little beefier or stronger for their CC reduction needs.
While we're churning on those - Merc Threads should suffice for a bit."
