Big Damage (35) | August 26, 2020 11:48am
Would you say in the first build Caduceus Shield can be replaced by Relic Dagger? Or is the extra sustain that useful?
1
Kriega1 (134) | August 26, 2020 11:50am
Yes it can be replaced.

boogiebass (46) | August 26, 2020 10:17am
1) Is Sledge mostly core?
2) Has nemean viability fallen off since 2 block stacks were nerfed to one?
1
Kriega1 (134) | August 26, 2020 10:23am
1. Mostly, yes.

2. It's not being nerfed exactly, it's being shifted (prot requirement for block stacks, but also can have up to 3 block stacks now) to be more of tank item (rather than having squishies building this lategame and ****ting on several jungler matchups), also more lategame oriented than before (already was a mid to late item anyway).

Branmuffin17 (370) | August 26, 2020 10:53am
But for the use it was being used for, yes, Nemean is being nerfed. Squishies were picking this up to counter Loki burst, for example. They can't do that anymore, so that's a heavy nerf for that item in their eyes.
