I love kassadin and the concept of anti-mage assassin but he really sucks at doing his job, there is no reason in picking him over LeBlank, zed, ahri, kat even yasuo.
He is currently sitting at 43% winrate with a 2.6% pick rate.
- Q Null Sphere 70 / 95 / 120 / 145 / 170 (+ 70% AP): is fine as is considering is a point and click ability, maybe increase duration of the shield to 2seconds? Not gonna lie ill be happy with a slight increase in base damage at later levels.
- W Nether Blade damage 40 / 65 / 90 / 115 / 140 (+ 60% AP), MANA RESTORED: 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 % missing mana: this helps sustaining mana in lane and for occasional trades, not often tho. The cooldown can be lower 9 seconds at all ranks is a bit much since you mostly use this skill in laning phase. With the change in rift walk range you cant really afford to go melee and blow all your CDs then rift walk out since you will still be in range of most ranged skills. Or... give it a higher scaling+base and make it high risk high reward skill and open the option of maxing it second based on situation.
- E Force Pulse MAGIC DAMAGE: 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 / 180 (+ 70% AP): now this is the one skill i have big issues with, first you need 6 charges to cast this spell and it still costs 80 mana! on top of that it has quite low base damage for a skill that is not at your disposal whenever is off cooldown. At the very least you could lower the charges needed to 5 or lower the mana cost at early levels.
- R Riftwalk: nothing that you can change here w/o putting him back in the ridiculous state he was.
Would like to see kassadin getting some love.
He lacks in the damage department a lot, specially that his E needs 6 charges for a meh base + scaling ability.
