Shen + Vladimir Buffs/Changes on PBE

 ME? Limited to the Testing Realm?!

Good morning everyone! Looks like Vlad and Shen are getting some future buffs, and Riot's set upon the beta testers to see if they're viable. So far these changes are only live on the PBE servers, but if testing goes well they'll be available on the regular servers soon.

In case you guys don't remember, Shen and Vlad had a period in time when they were each considered gamebreakingly overpowered. Shen's ultimate made him the #1 pick and ban for a good year or so, and Vlad's sustain past level 9 made him impossible to kill without ignite.

Luckily, it seems like Riot's learned from their mistakes and are focusing on making Shen's damage output higher and Vlad's early game slightly stronger. The changes don't seem to be game-breaking, but we'll see if Riot can wrestle through the balance changes and at least make these two heroes playable again.

As for the ninja tabi changes, at least they remembered to make it non-turret based damage. It still seems way too cost effective for what it does at the moment though, 10% flat reduction in non-turret basic attacks could mean death to heroes like Riven and most AD carries. This is definitely less frustrating than random ninja tabi dodges though.

In addition to the two item changes that are available to test, we'd also like to add changes to Shen and Vladimir. As always these changes are not final! Total changes are:

  • Vorpal Blade
    • Energy cost changed to 60 from 70/65/60/55/50
    • Healing effect reduced to 10/16/22/28/34 from 18/26/34/42/50
    • Healing effect now also heals for 2% of attacker's maximum health per hit
    • Shen gets the heal if he last hits with Vorpal Blade
    • Single target damaging spells can now also trigger Vorpal Blade instead of just attacks
  • Feint
    • Feint now grants 20/25/30/35/40 Armor while it's active
    • Feint duration increased to 3 from 2.5
    • Cost increased to 50 from 45
  • Shadow Dash
    • Cooldown changed to 11-9 from 10
    • Energy cost reduced to 100 from 120-100
    • Taunt Duration increased to 1/1.3/1.6/1.9/2.2 from 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2
    • Restores 40 Energy per champion affected, from 50 Energy if you affect one
  • Ki Strike
    • Bonus Damage from Health increased to 12% from 8%
    • Cooldown is now reduced by 0.5 seconds for minion hits in addition to 2 seconds for champion hits

  • Transfusion
    • Cooldown reduced to 10/8.5/7/5.5/4 from 12/10/8/6/4
  • Tides of Blood
    • Health cost reduced to 25/35/45/55/65 from 30/40/50/60/75
  • Crimson Pact
    • AP -> health conversion reduced to 1.4 from 1.8

Ionic Spark
  • Now purchasable on Summoner's Rift and Twisted Treeline
  • Chain lightning proc increased to 120 from 110.

Ninja Tabi
  • +25 Armor
  • UNIQUE Passive: Reduces the damage taken from non-turret basic attacks by 10%.
  • UNIQUE Passive: Enhanced Movement 2

  1. Vladimir's still shit after the soon to be buff/nerf

  2. It looks like they're trying to improve his early game a bit while trying hard not to make his late-game game-breakingly OP. I don't think he's in a terrible spot right now, people are just still hung up on how strong he is now compared to how strong he used to be.
