Needless to say, Infinity Sword is an attack item that has never been “out of meta” in the Arena of Truth. However, this item had a slight drop in value in the previous version before units that did not use Infinity Sword like Kai’Sa and Urgot completely dominated. Even so, this reduction in the value of Infinity Sword did not last too long when Riot launched a heavy nerf Kai’Sa, Urgot and brought it back to the position of the best attack item.
Infinity Sword is an indispensable item in the item sets of many main generals
Not stopping there, many champions using Infinity Sword showing signs of being hot again also contribute to making this item extremely cool. Lux with the combo of Gem Gloves, Infinity Sword, and Blue Amulet is a good example when the team of 6 Wizards is having a strong “comeback”. In addition, the more popularity of the Assassin team makes the Infinity Sword even more valuable when this item helps the assassins possess an extremely terrible amount of critical damage to finish off the opponent.
If you think that Riot nerfing Angel Armor’s health after respawning to 250 will make this item weaker, you’re wrong. Even the Angel Armor at the moment is still among the most used items “the flag of dignity” and shows no signs of cooling down. Many strong and trusted generals like Akali, Yone, Viktor, Jinx … using this item so well is part of the reason why Angel Armor is still being used.
Angel Armor makes it possible for Yone to still attack after being sent out even while in respawn state
Moreover, it was gradually discovered that the true strength of Angel Armor lies in the fact that it helps the generals who will definitely launch their skills. With the form of champions possessing the ability to deal damage or control overpowered skills, this is too important a factor. So even if the hero’s health after respawning is nerfed, it still has no effect on the power of Angel Armor. Perhaps Riot needs to have more drastic editing to reduce the hotness of this item.
Demon Letter Morello
Continuing to be a case of nerf but still hegemony from Riot’s side when in patch 12.1, they reduced the amount of burn damage that this item deals. In fact, the impact from the above change is a bit bigger than Angel Armor as some champions that depend on Morello’s damage like Twisted Fate, Lissandra have been weakened. However, the healing reduction effect of Demon Book Morello is still too important.
The type of champion that uses Morello well like Twisted Fate is still extremely strong
The reason is because in season 6, the Wizard system is showing its full strength and it is necessary to reduce their recovery with Morello’s Demon Book. Even if the opponent doesn’t use Wizards, many of the tech cores that provide healing are often present, so the value of Morello’s Book of Demons is even greater. However, Riot has also succeeded in bringing this item back as a counter item instead of dealing too “virtual” damage as before.
