Effects like the ones on Poacher's Dirk, Mejai's Soulstealer, and Cull are interesting because there's a clear mini-objective you're trying to achieve and opponents can change up their decision-making to deny you the payoff. In this case, unfortunately, both the mini-objective and the payoff are too specific for Poacher's Dirk to be considered in a reasonable number of games. Leaving it in the shop might not harm junglers who know it's not a great option, but it's a trap for newer players who haven't yet learned to skip over it. So, we're saying goodbye to Poacher's Dirk.

At its old price tag of 750 gold, Poacher’s Dirk was almost always a worse purchase than two Long Swords. We want to make Poacher’s Dirk a more competitive option, but we don’t want to power creep the item system. So we’re shrinking its cost and its stats. If you have the option to get two Long Swords, you’ll probably still want to go that route. But if you can’t pony up 700 gold, Poacher’s Dirk offers a chance to recover some tempo by making riskier plays, compared to the safer - but slower - option of stacking consumables instead.
COST : [750 gold] ⇒ 600 gold
COMBINE COST : [400 gold] ⇒ 250 gold
