Please don't nerf duchess in PvE. Please. You already killed her shield by changing the A1 from additive to multiplicative. In the most intuitive interpretation, the booked A1 should be putting MASSIVE shields out and all it gets is 30% bonus on top of the 10% HP base line. You're talking the difference between an 8K shield, and a 25K shield. (at approx 60K hp). Effectively, the last 3 LEGENDARY BOOKS on Duchess A1 gives an extra 1800 point shield at 60K hp. THREE BOOKS FOR 1800 HP!!! LUDICROUS! Just change the talent. Reword it. Do something to not make half the books you put into duchess a waste. and THEN comes an extension to the CD? Why not Nerf her AOE dmg reduction aura (again) or get rid of it. At least that does something to balance PvP while screwing with CB teams. Clearly her original concept made her Legendary. The continuing changes put that into doubt. Even if her raw skills are strong enough to make her legendary, the lengthy cooldowns put her into the questionably usable category. Duchess is a big part of my team. It's hard to accept but I may bench her for a Spirithost.
Why are you calling the change to Abbess a buff when she puts herself to sleep? This is a MASSIVE nerf. Even combined with a positive change, it should be highlighted in red. Also what is the point? She isn't so OP that you need to add a self debuff sleep. Quite a foolish choice for an under performing legendary.
It's obvious that you must balance over-performing champions. I'd be very curious to see some developer notes on the reasoning behind a number of the changes (that effect me). I'm sure everyone would appreciate notes on some of the bigger or more surprising changes. What did you see that you want to change from xyz buff or nerf? What expectations do you have for the heroes you change? Obviously the player base will work it out on it's own. That doesn't mean a one or two line note wouldn't help.
Please revert the Duchess change.
