Overall, with the change over to magic damage (but the scaling reduced), and the changes to deathcap, DC+Lich bane (which is quite expensive) is largely the same, damage wise.
Technically you do more damage with new lich bane now. with old lich bane if you had 100 ap then the bonus would be 100, with new lich bane you do 125, 75% 100 is 75 and 75 + 50 is 125.
They removed the resistance it used to provide and lowered the movement speed. The movement speed decrease was seen coming but I dont approve of removal of the resistances, the niche that lich bane was in was for characters that needed to be in the fray, as most lich bane carries also carry abyssal scepter as well.
I will say the trade off isn't as bad as I first thought but I will miss that MR it used to give.
