Cho'Gath

[UPDATED] R - Feast

Changes to the rules around Feast stacks.

FOOD MEMORY :: Cho’Gath no longer loses Feast stacks on death

FEED THE VOID :: Feast can now stack infinitely (only five stacks can be gained from minions and non-epic monsters, though they don’t have to be the first five)

NOT THAT FILLING :: Feast no longer heals Cho’Gath when it kills a unit at max stacks (nomming a sixth minion or non-epic monster doesn’t do anything beyond damage)

INDISCRIMINATE DIGESTION :: Feast no longer grants two stacks on champion kill or half mana and cooldown refund on minion kill

FOOD CRITIC :: Feast’s tooltip on the buff bar now tracks what Cho’s eaten

All the other stuff.

RATIO :: 0.7 ability power >>> 0.5 ability power and 10% bonus health

BONUS HEALTH PER STACK :: 100/140/180 >>> 80/110/140

BONUS HEALTH AT 6 STACKS :: 600/840/1080 >>> 480/660/840

MAXIMUM ATTACK RANGE BONUS :: +50 (175 attack range) >>> +75 (200 attack range)

Cassiopeia

NO HOVER SNAKES :: Cassiopeia’s tail now follows her realistically as she moves and turns

Bugfixes

DIZZY SNAKE :: Flashing during R - Petrifying Gaze’s cast time no longer resets the direction the cone fires in. It now consistently fires in the direction Cassiopeia faced before Flashing. This addresses a bug that sometimes caused Petrifying Gaze’s visuals to not line up with the actual effect.
