Dat grammar/sentence structure lol
Agreeably, she could USE a buff, but she's not "OMIGAWD UNDERPOWERED USELESS OP NAO PLEASE" like this messed up community keeps insisting:
I will agree, pure AP nuke is NOT a viable option, as anyone shoulda figured out by her percentage-health scaling rather than flat damage.
So build an offtank that excels at killing offtanks, because that's what she is. Don't be afraid to try hybrid, and she is a better solo top or jungler than a mid.
There you go: competitive Elise.
With that in mind, I agree her E needs to offer more.
