Hey guys, so I was inspired by PotatisFarfar's idea here, and I thought it through for a sec.

Seriously. You get like unlimited fighting capabilities, you can keep your energy up all the time, and when in a fight, and you need that last bit of energy, just SHAZAM full energy, and you can Q and then lighten out of there.

Really! What is the downside?!

There are no downsides. You are a giant-y credit to your team now refilling that Support Lee Sin's energy as well.

Their support wishes they could do what you can.

I kind of feel like Clarity actually should have an effect on energy-users as well :o

I mean: Energy is completely the same system as Mana. They both have a cap, and they both work at a regen rate (Energy's obviously being a lot higher than Mana's). Now before you go all like: "That would be so freaking imba, blabla, durr I like to complain and be called Kurt hehe hurrrr!", then think about it: Isn't a Kennen being able to fulfill his skill which is already off cooldown because of Clarity just the same as a 100 % mana-dead Jax, using Clarity to make that essential Leap Strike to the ward across the wall? Same concept really, only for energy-users Clarity will be a lot more effective, while for mana-users it will be more like something that keeps a dominating lane dominating, despite running out of mana after a while.

This should really go to Riot's main office of discussion and bagel-eating.

The problem is Energy restores so much more quickly. If you wait the 5 seconds it takes to get back that Energy, you're set.

You realize that, of the 4 people that have energy, they all have really efficient ways to regain it.

Kennen has his stun which regains energy. Lee has his passive. Akali has her Q and Shen has his dash and passive. You shouldn't be waiting in teamfights really. Only in extended poking wars and duels.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Shen has major energy issues, even after the buffs.

Akali never ever runs out of energy as long as you don't use her E, which is fine because her E is pretty much useless anyway.

I'm not saying they have energy-issues. Nobody can have "whatever"-issues with that high amount of regen, as well as, as you mention: energy-sustain-based abilities, however I'm talking last second moves.

Kennen's Lightning Rush
Shen's Shadow Dash
Akali's Whatever the hell
Lee Sin's last sec Dragon's Rage, kill-winning Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike or life-saving Safeguard / Iron Will

I'm not saying they need it all the time - only in special occasions ;3 Just an idea. Stop hatin' :S
