just to note though aside from the apen stuff, sorc. shoes & haunting guise are getting their pen stats nerfed because of the mpen rule change coming. however the return to the old rules would let Xerath have an interesting niche as a true-dmg lord.
they also mentioned two of the new CC items coming. they're slows, one supposed to be location based and the other a very long range attack. so meh until I see the items in question and the numbers.
