So I've been watching a bunch of Chu8's stream today, and on a buncha mid champs he is rushing kage's lucky pick and getting DFG early. Any thoughts/opinions on this? I had DFG as basically "veigar and only veigar". Is it viable after the changes?

Honestly, it's always been a valid pick for AP carries who wanted some CDR and the nice active. But the recent changes really feel like a nerf to me, because of just how much AP is required for the active to deal the same amount of damage as before. That you're seeing so much of it is probably just because it's sorta' Flavor Of The Month right now.

you need 1k ap for it to deal the same damage as the old dfg.


at about 1875 ap, dfg will deal 100% of an enemies current hp. but as you continue to stack ap it continues to increase, because of magic resist.

LOL
Riot made it possible to do 100% current health in damage? I thought there was a cap to that active...

There's never been a cap on it at all. The chance you'd actually get that much AP is really low so nobody ever hits that 100% threshold.

...How would you even get to that amount of AP? I don't even think 6 fully stacked AA staffs can get you that high. Must I've gotten was around 900 AP and that was a fully stacked Mejai's as Leblanc.


Ahhh that was a fun game. Tanks died, Carries died, Mages died, everything died!

1000 is a bit high. You really only need a little over 700 AP, before building DFG, in order for the active to do the same amount of damage.
