    Eye of Providence

    I find it sad that a relatively good item is just not used. It feels like it needs something to make it more viable to occupy an active slot. Given it occupies an active slot, presumably on supports, it would need to compete with the likes of HoG and Shell or HoG and Blink. Perhaps upon use it should give a small protection buff, or maybe the ward it places should give some very minor buff, but it occupies the same slot as a sentry ward? It's just unfortunate it is never seen in any play, even casual queues.

    the only way eye can become viable again is by reducing its price by almost half, or making wards cost about 100 gold each again.

    The current cost for a ward is 50. Eye costs 300.

    This means that for lvl 1 of eye to be worth anything, you need to buy 6 wards. For providence, you need to buy 18 wards.

    Considering I can use that extra slow for a blink, slow, aegis, shell, ETC ETC... it just isn't worth it.

    But then Athean will reign supreme even more because she isn't blink reliant.

    She can be used with blink. Blinking into 3 people and taunting them is hilarious.



    On topic, eop should have a smaller cooldown or reduced cost. I've never used it in conquest.

    This is exactly the point, either you need to make it significantly more valuable over the course of a game, saving substantial money that would be spent on wards, or it needs to somehow compete with Shell/Blink. The fact Shielded Recall and Spiked Shell and Aegis and Beads were all given attention of one kind or another in the season 2 update and EoP was completely ignored is kind of saddening.

    Something like that is desperately needed.

    perhaps gold bonus every 5sec for each ward that is in play, or gold bonus for each enemy sighted by that ward... or both of these.
