Perhaps in the past time, Caitlyn is a typical champion in being able to become extremely strong without having to buff directly. With the rework of Deadly Pace, Caitlyn can use it to stay in position and deal too much damage in teamfights. Moreover, Lux’s return to the Support position also makes Caitlyn much stronger in the laning phase. That’s why Caitlyn is currently the top ADC in both solo and professional ranks.
Caitlyn currently has a very high pick and ban rate in professional tournaments
Perhaps because Caitlyn is too strong, Riot Games is looking for a way to reduce the power of this champion. Even according to the knowledge of gamers, Caitlyn is being tested for the loss of all Q – Apple Shooting skill damage when buying items with Magic Shield effect. Specifically, when possessing the Cloak of Darkness or the Chain of the Cross, Caitlyn’s Q – Shoot Through Apples will not deal any damage.
According to the sharing of gamers, it is not only the equipment that provides the Magic Shield effect that creates the above error. Even a similar effect, Morgana’s Black Shield, causes Caitlyn’s Q – Apple Piercing to lose all of the damage above. Is this an underground nerf that Riot is aiming for the Caitlyn – Morgana “super-tipping” combo?
When there is no item, Caitlyn still throws Q – Piercing Apple normally
However, when I have Shadow Cloak, this move loses all damage
It doesn’t even deal any damage to jungle monsters
It is worth mentioning here that this error does not only occur for the target of a champion, but even when used on minions and monsters, the damage of the Q – Shoot Through Apples skill also disappears completely. Remember that with the ADC position, they have very few defensive items to protect themselves and the Dark Cloak is one of them. With the above error, the number of defensive items that Caitlyn can buy becomes even less because no one wants one of their skills to be “wasted”.
Besides, this is not the first time this error has occurred in League of Legends. According to “holy bug” Vandiril, Sona and the ultimate move The Climax also have the same error when it does not deal any damage or stun if the champion owns the Chain of Cross, Cloak of Thorns. This bug happened 6 months ago when Sona was lightly reworked and it has returned with the latest victim named Caitlyn.

Perhaps Riot Games needs a wide-ranging review of its champions when directional moves like Caitlyn and Sona are extremely popular. Hopefully, Riot will find a way to fix it as quickly as possible so that this bug does not affect the game too much.
