    I'm surprised you didn't mention Amethyst Ashe and Taric, though I can't think of anything to go with them.

    Oh yeah, Amethyst Ashe and Taric, maybe even Armor of the 5th Age because it's the most similar in color. Or that and Heartseeker Vayne since they're both ridiculous bright and colorful skins.
    Plus Malphite, Obsidian Malphite especially hue.

    Also rem and I discovered that Sheen outdamages 2 Dorans start on Diana, while being ~300 gold more expensive and sacrificing some early HP. We were seeing, with the DFG nerf, what exactly you can build early on Diana - seems like if you are WINNING OR EVEN in lane and know you can get your blue, Sheen/Abyssal/Deathcap is strong, if you're losing lane/getting camped just get 2 Dorans. Sheen will probably help your advantage by producing more damage that cannot be countered by MR (Chalice/Abyssal), but if you're losing I'm not sure if it will let you get back in it.

    Well I lol'd.

    Car Theme
    Hot Rod Corki
    Pitover Customs Blitzcrank

    Also, I think they should make a doctor skin for Zed. After all, he is a ninja. With him and one more ninja, we could have a full doctor theme.

    The pre-season 3 update notes have been released and a PBE update is to be done soon.

    http://www.surrenderat20.net/2012/11/preseason-changes-on-pbe.html#more

    Items and their abilities have been released (although their exact stats have not), including changes to existing items. Jungle changes are also listed with slightly more detailed information than we already had.

    I'm thinking it won't be worth it to go Boots+3pots anymore on any champion with a dash (Lee Sin, Fiora, etc.) which means Lee can go Cloth Armor or that new jungle item+pots and still do an effective Lv.2 gank.

    Definitely gonna try this out on Vladimir. Should work well because Haunting Guise will still give HP and Rylai's and his W slow the target.

    Nami is extremely strong as a support (and I believe her AP scaling will certainly be nerfed when people play her mid, as well as her support numbers). She is basically a Sona Janna hybrid and her kit does everything. Her only obvious limitations are really mana costs and cooldowns (and to an extent getting jumped on herself instead of the AD, but her range lol...), but now you can build Chalice of Harmony into a support item, and supports tend to max CDR anyway since almost all support items give it... You can't really spam her spells, unlike Sona where you can spam heal for example, but they are quite powerful and Chalice helps a lot. Her versatility makes her pretty hard to counter in lane, imo... if she has a relatively passive AD you can just farm alongside her, I guess, but she's also incredible in engages as well as disengages.

    I have a feeling Ohmwrecker is gonna be a jungler's wet dream come true.
    Show Hide

    Ohmwrecker
    High End Siege Item
    Recipe:Catalyst + Chain Vest
    Active: Disables nearby enemy towers for 2.5 seconds, preventing them from attacking

    Mercurial Scimtar makes every bruiser Olaf.
    Show Hide

    Mercurial Scimitar
    High End Magic Resistance / Attack Damage Item
    Recipe: Quicksilver Sash + B.F. Sword
    Active: Cleanses all debuffs from your character. If your character is melee, he gains 100% movement speed for 1 second.

    I also want Wolves/Golems/Lizards versions of Wraith Collar
    Show Hide

    Wraith Collar
    Supportive Scouting Item
    Recipe: Kage's Pick + Null Magic Mantle
    Active: Summons 2 wraiths for 6 seconds that seek the nearest enemy champions. If they reach an enemy champion, they slow him and reveal him for 2.5 seconds.


    Also, Nami ult seems like a ridiculous initiation move.

    Ohmwrecker won't be good for junglers specifically because it's expensive and too niche to rush in time for tower dive ganks. It's designed for extremely lategame turtle situations where a team is not well-equipped to siege/dive and break the stalemate. Somewhere, a Froggen weeps.

    Agreed with Jumpluff. Catalyst is expensive enough as it is and rushing it plus chain vest offers no additional jungle speed or damage, nor does it offer the late game security that GP10 items grant. With the new jungle items coming in, the prospect of going cata+vest doesn't seem too appealing.

    Plus you can dive towers well enough with just Tabi.

    I've never done this before...how does one play on "pbe". I'm not really even sure what that stands for. I really wanna try out Nami, she seems so cool! She might be a new support that I can use other than Blitzcrank :P

    Twitch so much fun, nobody could stop me once rodan started peeling rengar and hec

    The new items are actually cool and almost make AD carries feel different. I went Boots>Doran's>Vamp>BORK>Greaves>Hurricane>BT. Would not reccommend bothering with the crit items if you have hurricane, the mirror shots can't crit and (70+25)% AS is really all you need.

    Compared to IE/PD build you're generally gonna have a harder time dueling (although lifestealing off nearby minions helps) and peeling off yourself, but the extra aoe damage is noticable. On a champion with a good onhit effect and a reasonable peel comp, hurricane is great.
