  • Passive: Damage now listed as 20/30/40/50/60 from 30/40/50/60/70.
  • [Note: While the number appears to be down, ricklessabandon has confirmed there is no actual change to the base damage as he just rescripted the numbers.]
  • Active: now has (.25) AP ratio .
  • Active: No longer deals 4/5/6/7/8%  of target's missing health as magic damage on hit.
