Here's a small red post collection featuring ricklessabandon discussing a few Galio changes he's hoping to test in the near future and Meddler sharing the live team's perspective on how LeBlanc is fairing after her recent changes.
Building on his earlier comments, Ricklessabandon is back to discuss his plans for Galio!
"... i want to give galio some serious attention soon. my current plan is to try to get some changes on the pbe before 3.12 is released.He continued, mentioning his desire to try out MR ratios on Galio's spells and hooking him up with a brand new passive.
(like all plans, the above is subject to change.)"
"yes, one of the changes i want to try is putting the magic resist ratios directly in his abilities so he can get a new passive."In response to comments about Galio being a mage counter and NOT having MR per level, he noted:
first, i'm going to give galio mr/level in my early tests and see how it goes. i totally expect it to be fine, but 'no promises' and all that.
second, galio isn't really supposed to be a mage counter. his kit doesn't really have anything you'd expect on an anti-mage. sure, he's generally good/annoying against the du couteau house and a handful of other champions, but that's more due to bulwark being particularly effective versus periodic and multi-hit damage than his overall kit. that said, people definitely think of him as resilient against magic so i think it will be worthwhile to make that aspect of him a bit more pronounced."
How's LeBlanc doin'?
Meddler made a few comments on what the live balance team currently thinks of post 3.9 changes LeBlanc :
"I know live feels she's a bit weak at the moment and are currently looking at whether some base stat adjustments would be an appropriate fix/part of an appropriate fix. Nothing set in stone yet, she is on their radar though.
From what I've seen personally I'm inclined to agree she's a bit weak, at least at the level I'm playing at, I usually play ADC or support though so I don't have much direct exposure to her in lane to draw on. Plus, more importantly, I'm not involved that much in balance changes."
