So I was wondering do you think it will still be worth it to have this item on AP carries or will it be a complete waste of $$$?

Not a waste of gold at all, but it's going to be more of a counterbuild item to health stackers rather than a tool to turn everything into a burst mage.

I don't plan on building it early anymore, that's for sure. Maybe as a 3rd item or later on burst casters.

Not only does the CDR nerf hurt its overall cost-effectiveness, but the hit to base damage is just brutal.... :/
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

The CDR was a leftover from the time when it used to build from Fiendish Codex so that's only fair. Also, it really was a broken item to be honest.

I agree. Now it's a **** item. Just because it's necessary for burst casters late game doesn't mean it's not ****. Morello wanted it removed entirely because the mechanic is toxic, this is as close as he got.

This was obviously not a tweak, this was smashing the item out of the meta as far as they could. I wish they just replaced it with something less toxic if that was the problem.
Thanks to Nyoike for the sig!

loltoxic.

I love how DFG went from being the ****tiest item in the game (opinion wise) to being one of the best items in the game (with a very slight tweak) to being the ****tiest item in the game.

I think it'll make Grail more standard for CDR, or a Codex at least?

Was talking to Khazem about it a bit, and said that Evil Tome is still an iffy item, but Grail is prety good. Removing DFG jsut makes it the next bext thing for an early item.

Grail already is on most champions who use it, which include champs like Orianna and Anivia.
