This ryze change is INSANE. Seriously insane. His overall damage is going up, his R is gaining MORE utility in exhange for a tiny loss of mana, and the little AP he still gets is going to be making more of a difference apparently. I've got to say, I really don't like playing against the anti fun black hole that is ryze, and this just didn't help it.
Edit: I'll consider this exchange for master yi buffs, which I adore. Master yi's Q is now going to always do bonus damage to the first targeted minion, his jungle route will be fast and furious
