Cass has a team wide slow or stun and a skill that can check bushes so you never have to facecheck.
Ziggs has long ranged poke, a skill that can zone off ramps and passages, a skill that can knock enemies away and allow you to jump walls and an ult that can assist from half the map away.
Seems like you haven't played either of those champs.
actually, hes not mistaken on ahri's status of pure damage mage
if you actually read his post, old mages, like annie and ryze, have 3 damage spells, and 1 utility spell.
nowadays, most mages have 4 damage spells (as with kennen, ahri, ziggs, cass) so they are geared towards dealing damage, not 3 damage one utility
i think that riot should try to make the 3 spells 1 utitlity mages on par if they arent, with pure damage mages. they dont have to deal the same damage, but they should have something to make them wanted.
the thing is pure damage mages do get lots of damage in, and they can carry. maybe somehow, riot should allow the legacy and utility mages be able to carry as well (not by damage, ofc, defeats the purpose of pure damage) but by utility with decent damage?
