you cant figure the power those things have with damage numbers
I really couldnt disagree more.Shrooms are a poor excuse for wards - wards dont blow up when people get near them.
His blind is excruciatingly short duration - as is his range. It's extremely uncommon for him to be able to get into range to blind the enemy carry without getting wrecked.
He scales extremely poorly with Damage items, has awful range, and no spike damage to speak of, and is soul-crushingly squishy. He does great against champs with no range, no closers, and poor level-scaling abilities. So uh... Nasus, pre-ult warwick, and maybe udyr. Anyone who can get into range of him beats his tiny little face in, and AP of any sort hard-counters him.
I've been on the other end. I know how annoying it is to step on a mushroom - but it's just that - ANNOYING, not dangerous.
