RiotMeddler Explains Lissandra Changes

Some of you were a little skeptical as to whether Lissandra's changes were a buff or a tweak. Due to her low win rate as of now, I can't help but think that they're likely going to be buffs to her play, but I could be mistaken.

Check out what RiotMeddler has to say about the Lissandra tweaks (buffs :x)
Our goal with the Lissandra changes currently in testing was to shift Lissandra's power a little bit more towards utility (lower W CD, stronger slow at higher levels on ult) and away from burst (base damage at higher ranks on W and ult). These changes aren't intended to be a nerf and shouldn't impact her laning phase much at all, bar the lower W CD. We suspect they may actually may be a slight buff, though it's that realignment of power towards desired strengths that's the key thing here.

In terms of overall performance Lissandra's also still pretty new so we're still assessing her overall state as well, particularly given some people started playing her in her first week, others when she dropped to 6300 IP and yet more of course during her current free week. This means quite a wide range of experience on her from individual players, resulting in a fair bit of variation in performance still. Source
Meanwhile,  for those of you who want to know if it's a buff or just a tweak, here's Riot's take on it:
The changes to her ultimate only kick in at levels 11+. The W I feel's pretty clearly stronger while at rank 1. You'll be getting less damage per point at higher ranks (though on a lower CD) granted, that won't occur until level 8 if you're maxing it 2nd or level 14 if maxing it third though. Unless you're seeing extremely long laning phases I'd be surprised to see these changes have much effect on Lissandra's laning phase as a result.

Elementary, really!

    I think Riot will eventually get her in a good spot, and her kit's fun. Go for it!

  3. She is really fun, and her CC is great for kiting. I personally just believe she's got the "New Champion Effect" where like they say, so many people with varying skill levels are playing her which effects her win rate. She's got decent dmg and her utility is really nice, but a lot of people I see just build her towards pure DPS so she gets melted pretty quickly instead of going the survive-ability route and going RoA, Rylais etc, which makes her a kiting beast.

  5. I can see were it may be a small buff during the laning phase by giving her a little more CC (lower CD more uptime). But for the overall game its more a tweak.
    Realignment of her power is the best way of looking at it. Its not a bad thing, but I would like to see a little more range on her Q
