Removed: No longer returns mana on minion kill
New: Now gives 5 mana regen per 5 seconds
New: Now gives +5 on-hit damage vs minions

Like the skin, don't like the champ. I feel like I want to start playing evelynn now.
The one guy who plays League for a good time just to get flamed and hated for having a rough game. Sadly, I know I'm bad at the game, but still, is there no such thing as a bad game?
