Dear Bigg,

What are your thoughts on Mal'ganis' kit and do you think he'll be a capable solo "tank" ?


I think Mal'ganis lacks CC and engage that most tanks need to be successful. He will more likely be a solo laner like Yrel, Malthael or Dehaka. He deals decent damage and sustains himself well, two important things for a solo laner if they lack strong CC. He does have a small stun on his third Q which can cancel dashes and certain abilities just like a fully charged Yrel W. Overall, I'm concerned at the cast times on his heroic abilities as I feel that they will get cancelled most of the time. We'll just have to wait and see if he fits into the current meta but if I had to guess, I would say he could be a strong disruptive solo laner/offtank against teams with weaker sustained damage.
