That when mana-recovery-over-time effects were converted over to being Mp5 bonuses, that Chalice and the dominion mana aura affects them now? So it was sort of a stealth buff to mana pots on dominion and when you have a chalice. Nothing large, but it helps...

I can't think of anything else that recovers mana over time though other than blue buff, and IIRC it already was affected :X If it wasn't though, maybe chalice is more viable now?

IIRC, they were always classified as that in the game's mechanics but they only showed them as that recently.

Also, Blue buff's "1% of your max mana per second" has always been MP5. It was just 5% of your MP as MP5 instead with 25 flat.

That's why Veigar+Chalice+Blue buff never runs out of mana. Ever.

but chalice is pretty worthless.


the problem with veigars passive is that you have to build more mp5 for it to work really well, which is why i usually rush a codex on him.

I never understood why everyone hated chalice. Is it because of the "lol nob just manage ur mana" aspect? Especially since blue buff was nerfed now, I would think people might pick it up as a way to sustain mana costs and as an early item in lane to fight other casters.

IMO it's not worth it on any champion save for maybe Galieo. Overall you need a champ capable of spamming skills so that your mana is consistently low or at least below 50%. Not many champs accomplish that level of spammability.
