Seems reasonable. Im a Kha'zix player and I really felt that his evolved q was so lackluster that it was never worth evolving. If they had buffed his q alone then he would have been overpowered. The slight nerf on his w is fair. The only time you can triple shot w is when he has his passive. It gives some incentive to play stealthy and clever near brushes but gives enemies the counterplay of warding brushes to stop you getting it back. This is even compensated by the permanent slow which is fairly good. Yes the damage is reduced but all in all, this seems to be a fair nerf.

His R is debatable. Its not really a nerf and yet it is. You no longer get the damage reduction but you can stealth four times. Thats four times you can apply your passive to whatever move you choose. Thats a lot of damage and a lot of mobility and sneaky jukes you can do. I wouldnt say this is a nerf or a buff, just a redistribution.

All in all, a buff to q and its evolved form, a nerf to the w and a change around that is pretty neutral on his r

3x 30% dmg reduction for 1 second 100000000000000000x better than200 magic dmg late game .

This guy has a point.
PEOPLE GET REAL!!
Kha'Zix is an assassin. They MUST have high burst and high mobility. One of the examples is Zed.
As an assassin, he can be focused down and shutted down pretty easily.

All in all, Riot is releasing an assassin in a perfect state, and then nerfing him because of little kids who want to win all the ****ing time... This is outragious.
I really want a Riot'er answer, why are you so stubborn to do everything that little children say to do.

this is definatly a buff, did you not read what its says. His w still uses passive but another move can use the passive since it doesn't use it up.

Early game buff on passive...this is obviously a hox.
Too good to be true.

Maybe you're to stubborn to (consume and) adapt

Then stop playing broken heroes. Learn a hero that isn't played as much and wait for an incomming buff instead. ;D



how is kha'zix with winrate of 49% a broken hero? All he did was stealing some kills in teamfight but not doing major damage

thats hardly compare to a prepatch zed with what 55% winrate facerolling an entire team

he has not the burst damage to be viable without that w poke damage

In the current live patch Kha'Zix is a low risk, high reward champion with high end damage, high end mobility, stealth and self-healing mechanics that exceed on-release Rengar's, who everyone complained about. Do not defend someone who does the same thing you prosecuted another for.

EDIT:
Kha'Zix is given +% MISSING health and resets because he's meant to be an executor, at the moment he dives in 100-0 the carry, rinses and repeats.

This patch didnt really seem to be a way of nerfing him. It just seems like they tried to make his evolutions more meaningful. Virtually all kha players evolved w, then e, then r. This means that his original niche' a varied champion is actually true now. You will actually see kha'zix with claws evolved. Its refreshing in my opinion

There's something important that is not stated there. The new Void Spikes evolution will need to consume the passive to launch the 3 spikes, otherwise, only launches 1. That's what balances it all, making Q evolution a possible first start instead always W

what the ****
thats a joke
why the **** would they do that

No one evoles R, that's retarded.
