: I disagree with you, Cassiopeia being my most played champ with around 900 games. They shifted a lot of damage back to Q and gave W a significant amount of damage as well now. It is no longer E spam to win. They changed her playstyle only slightly. You no longer spam E 4 times per trade. The a trade combo would be like this now: W E Q E E All in combo: Ult Q E W E E Q E E woops, didn't mean to send already, gonna edit. She is more mobile in the early game, until like level 10. At that point the enemy is likely to finish his boots and be faster than you. Afterwards you'll get stronger again, treat it like a dip in power where you become significantly weaker for a few levels, just in terms of movement. Q has a good AP ratio again. It's great. Also the spell IS way stronger than before. You have a stronger movement speed buff (your calculations are off, it was a buff 100%), it has half !!! it's cooldown and has a good base damage once again. Original Cassio had this and she was very strong with it. W has a shit ton of damage. Her old W dealt 10 + 90% AP damage per second for 9 seconds, increasing by 10 per rank. The 90% ratio only for the full duration. The new W starts at like twice that damage, has 5 seconds of duration and deals a total of 95% AP over less time. The slow is insanely good, you can compare it to Braum ultimate that deals a load of damage. E got significantly nerfed indeed, but that is alright. Good last hit tool, non restrictive since you'll get mana back regardless of whether you get the last hit with it or not. It does feel odd at first, being used to .5 seconds CD (the sound of a spell that is on cooldown is disgusting), but you know what this also means? This means that Cassio scales with Cooldown Reduction. A stat that was previously almost useless on her, which is why she got it for free so she doesn't have to buy it. You should get around 30% CDR, maybe going for the 40% and now you'll almost be like old cass in terms of E spam, but your other spells are significant as well. She does need some getting used to, but I find her to be way more powerful than before. It feels like you actually do have zone control now. That W is insanely powerful, I'm very happy with it. So what is my playstyle? I max W first. And it is insanely good, you should too! Max W > Q > E, it will feel really good. Give it a try. Why? W gains a very strong slow, so people can't just walk through it. It gains A LOT of damage AND the cooldown goes down by A LOT. With my usual build of 30% CDR, that W has 8.9 second cooldown. That is insane for the damage it does and the utility it brings. I do take a second level in Q early to get a good amount of movement speed (it feels more fluid that way to me). This also allows you to us W more freely, instead of being restricted by a very long cooldown your enemy can abuse (think Yasuo Windwall) And I do find myself in many games where I actually make good use of that item slot. Don't forget that you can have more item parts as well, not only full items.
PS : Are you building luden's for extra monbility tho ?

Q is a buff overall on the damage and cooldown that's for sure, but for the move speed if you consider that in 3 secs the movement speed buff goes from 30% to 0% in 3 secs (at lvl 1) its overall boost is 15% so it is only worth the old Q (in terms of move speed boost) at lvl 3 But anyway thanks for the answer i'll try the W maxing. I'll always go for a 45% CDR build anyway since i can't forget the old Cass with EXACTLY 0,5 secs CD (and not 0,55 or 0,63) it doesn't feel exactly the same as before. I still feel like the playstyle is way different , she's obviously less mobile than when I rushed celerity and now we'll have to wait to get built up to actually spam E and kite people. I'm still disgusted by the Q range nerd tho. I guess this comes from Riot's intention to make Cass an easier champion overall. Feels bad man
