This is a decent buff to his laning, and it was never our intention to revive old Mordekaiser. We reverted one of the nerfs, and then went to a mid point on the shield. The damage on E is not insignificant here, especially for his own harass.
Does this make Morde perfect? Maybe, maybe not. I'm not convinced he needs more after one day of looking at it, and while that could be the case, this seems to be an expectations issue informing this thread.
its not an expectation issue, i didn't really think he would get full nerfs reverted or anything
but i tested his shield gain after this buff, its nice, but it still won't help him.
he is just too squishy, which makes him extremely reliant on his shield
, especially in laning. hitting minions only barely grants shield, so unless the enemy laner is sitting in his minion wave mordekaiser won't gain much shield.
and do not forget, morde must spam his skills on the minions/enemy champ to gain this shield that he is so reliant on to survive, but that in turn pushes the lane really hard, leaving him open for ganks.
he needs more shield gain from minions in my opinion, he is too reliant on having to hit champions.
especially since the nerf to his E gaining bonus shield for each unit hit.
my ideas: revert the bonus shield nerf for each unit on his E OR give him at least 75%(up from 50%) shield gain from minions.
