Grievous Wounds duration increased.
Making Bramble Vest's Grievous Wounds duration consistent with the effect on other items.
GRIEVOUS WOUNDS DURATION :  ⇒ 3 seconds
Reflect damage now has lower base damage but scales with armor.
Bramble Vest is still proving too strong a spot-counter against basic attackers, thanks to the spike of strength it provides against them. We're working to dial that back and ensure it doesn't take over the laning phase.
MAGIC DAMAGE REFLECT :  ⇒ 3 + 10% of bonus armor
Cost increased. Damage reflected decreased.
Bramble Vest was a much needed item for tanks who desired a way to deal with auto-attackers with heavy lifesteal/healing. Right now, however, it’s overtuned to the point that it’s good against all basic attackers, so we’re bringing its cost up and effectiveness down a bit.
TOTAL COST :  ⇒ 1000 gold
COMBINE COST :  ⇒ 400 gold
DAMAGE REFLECTED :  ⇒ 15
BUGFIX : No longer applies Grievous Wounds to non-Champions
Thornmail’s redesign makes it a strong answer to healing-heavy comps, but its price point is too high for it to serve as a timely reaction to an out-of-control threat. We’re introducing Bramble Vest to make the Thorns passive available at lower gold investments. This is a paradigm you’re probably familiar with on other items: Hexdrinker into Maw of Malmortius, Quicksilver Sash into Mercurial Scimitar, etcetera.
BUILD PATH : Cloth Armor + Cloth Armor + 300 gold
ARMOR : 35
UNIQUE PASSIVE - THORNS : Upon being hit by a basic attack, reflects 20 magic damage, inflicting Grievous Wounds on the attacker for 1 second.
