Ebb flow too difficult?

Also her ability tide caller causes her to put herself or who she is supporting in extremely dangerous situations to use the damage. This often makes it pointless to use the damage because you can never get ahead with a well timed poke. This ability needs to be either improved upon or redesigned. Notice that Nami lacks damage and one of her damage abilities isn't working out for her well at all.
One improvement we could do to the ability is have it give increased auto attack range.
If we took the route of redesign we could make it a skill you click on the enemy that works like this.
60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+ 100% AP) Magic Damage, Slows by 35% for 4 seconds. Missle speed 1300.
It has a range of 725
its max travel range without moving targets is 2175
The target need only be in bounce range at the time of impact.
You get less benefit the less risk you take.
The easier 3 hit shot is to hit yourself with your carry in range for
Ally > Enemy > Ally
HP change: 195 / 300 / 400 / 500 / 600 (+110% AP)
In battle you can easily get one onto an enemy for
Enemy> Ally > Enemy
HP change: 205 / 315 / 425 / 535 / 640 (+120% AP)
not to mention the speed boosts, you should be able to protect yourself and so should those responsible for your safety (fighters and tanks)
I'd like to see this ability eb flow is being compared to.
Dont use it for the damage lategame. Its a cheap version of frozen mallet for free! and anybody gets to use it even nami. Its range isn't an issue. They can move with it on or she can change the outcome of a fight. She's not nami the initiator she's nami the tidecaller. Get it? she changes the tides of battles. Her abilities are weak when there's no tide.
