Am I misunderstanding 'Cheap Shot'? Or is it honestly just straight garbage?

PASSIVE: Your attacks and damaging abilities deal 12 - 30 (based on level) bonus true damage to Stun icon impaired enemy champions.

Note that attacks or abilities that impair the target will not trigger that bonus damage themselves, unless the target is already impaired.

Cooldown: 4 seconds

----------------------------------------------

That cooldown means that only the next attack on an enemy with impaired movement deals the true damage right? Like if I stunned someone with Irelia, then slap them 2 times, only the first slap deals the true damage then I have to wait 4 seconds to deal it again, right?

If so, then how in the world is this not one of the worst runes/masteries to take? 30 true damage at max is complete s***. Even early game, 12 isn't anything to write home about either.

12 is significant for one rune but IMO all the red runes kinda suck ass outside of electrocute.

If it was 12 for every attack on an impaired target with no cooldown, I would agree. But every 4 seconds? That seems like regen alone would recover nearly half that damage by the time you impair their movement again to deal more true damage.

Ravenous Hunter and the bonus lethality after using a dash is absurd on renekton if you get some good roams

Ingenious Hunter is hilarious on Support.

Red Trinket is like 16 second CD.

Redemption spam, locket spam.

Games don't seem to be going as long this season though or this would be super strong.

Yeah sudden impact is decent but a lot of times I'm not very impressed with how much extra damage it actually gave me at the end of the game. Ingenious hunter is pretty good as well. I'm sure theres some hilarious glacial augment+ingenious hunter+stealth build that would be a true nightmare. Just unleash botrk, cutlass, GLP, FQC, and whatever else there is and then run away and do it again in 20 seconds.

Assuming it's the same templating as Liandry's and slows count, it seems nice on Ashe.

I dont like that Sudden Impact doesn't work with Garen's Q. It gives a minor little hop.

works well on janna with aery

you use W

W hits, slows which lets cheap shot work on the next attack, aery hits and also procs aforementioned cheap shot damage
