@HeartQueen I agree, its just too much value per point currently. You have to play around him like Talus at the start of a match as you cant do shit to him till you have Caut 2.
I think the biggest issue was that Lex was so bad, you couldn't justify a nerf to him before. Like every other dps got their life steal nerfed after the devs realized that nerfing caut made their own life steal too op. They forgot to nerf Lex's, so yeah... Once they nerf it from 10%-->7% scaling, then he'll be fine.
