    Finding a use for Runeforged hammer

    As the title says, I’d like to have a discussion about Runeforged Hammer and before you decide “this item is trash, this thread is pointless” etc., please hear me out.
    So, this item has been in its current state since the turn of Season 3 and Hirez haven’t even so much as batted an eyelash at it. The general consensus is that the damage from the passive is insignificant for the price you have to pay. However, the fact that it hasn’t been changed means Hirez believes there is a use for this item…right?

    I’ve been trying to find a way to incorporate Runeforged for about a week and have stumbled across something that might just make it worth your time.

    Bastet’s passive applies a 15% damage increase on 2nd ability hit, usually the combo is declaw->razor whip. The passive from Runeforged gives abilities 15% extra damage as magical or 30% extra if the target is slowed, rooted or stunned.
    Bearing this in mind, Bastet’s Declaw also applies a slow. So hitting an enemy with declaw with Runeforged equipped and following up with Razor whip will increase the damage of Razor whip by a huge 45%. Considering this ability is already is already capable of hitting for 420 with 100% scaling, an additional 45% damage (if we take a power build with 200 power) would increase the damage to almost 900 (420+200+45%=899) and if we include the initial damage from Declaw as well (270+100% scaling+15% from Runeforged=540) we’re looking at 1400 damage from a simple 2 skill combo.
    Obviously some of this would be mitigated so the build would have to be something like: Warrior boots->Jotunns->Trans->Runeforged->titans->situational/more pen.

    The one thing I’m not sure of is if the cats from her ult would trigger this extra 30% magical damage from Runeforged. Each cat attack applies a slow and has physical scaling. Does this mean their damage counts as “ability damage”? If so, I don’t see why they wouldn’t benefit from the Runeforged passive.
    Perhaps someone who understand this mechanic more can help.

    So…thoughts?

    What Hi-rez believes and the things that actually work are two entirely​ different things.
    Aim high. One day I will be HirezPonPon, I will wear his skin. Or you know, just be a moderator.
    A pretty amazing skin idea, SAW Scylla. Quite literally the best MOTD, Mayhem

    It increases the amount of items in the game, and that's really it.

    This thread is pointless because that's not how Runeforge works. Runeforge is based off your power. If you have 100 power Runeforge adds 15 damage or 30 if they're slowed. This is then further mitigated. The only God in the game that can continuously proc Runeforge is bakasura's ult per hit and even then its still trash. You would need 300 power which is absurd and that would only do an extra 45 damage....which is then mitigated! It's a terrible item.

    I thought it didn't reapply on extra hits, i.e on Guan spinny sword.

    It doesn't proc on baka's ult, it procs on butcher blades.

    It also deals magical damage, which physical gods aside from guan can't penetrate.

    Apologies you're right, it seems I made a mistake. Please disregard my post.
