When I was tuning LW and % pen nerfs, I don't think I took into account how we made all armor more expensive by about 20%. We'll be tracking if this gets out of line - but for now, we're actually more interesting in seeing how AD Casters with BC pan out.
What I'm seeing here is that the percentage pen and shred on whisper and cleaver are possibly going to be tuned down. Combine that with the removal of the pen aura and I believe tanks wont feel naked anymore.
If the % pen on whisper and cleaver are hit then I feel like the only thing that really needs to be unique on cleaver is the health. I believe the biggest problem with the cleaver stack is the 1000 health from having 4 of them. A player isn't sacrificing nearly enough durability for going full pen.
I still want to be able to go brut + cleaver + youmuu as an AD tripen build - that needs to stay in. If the game goes on long enough I want to be able to turn that second brut into a cleaver and not have it be a complete waste (I would miss out only on the defensive stats on the item).
