    Augment unfair to casters?

    Im searching for an augment that gives health and power damage. There is none. Yet theres an augment that gives health and attack damage, health and attack life steal, and health and attack pen. Why arent there the same for casters? Can there be a health and power damage, health and power pen and health power life steal? I find that to be pretty unfair.

    While this may be true you have to look at the practical application of said stats. A great example is the Power damage version of Joker's crow bar, two face's coin can gather up to 80 PD while Joker's crow bar can only gather 40 AD. Much like the Augments PD is more valuable upfront in that your abilities do more upfront damage than auto attacks. So early on in the laning phase you can poke harder with less return damage to worry about. This also plays into balancing ranged versus melee as melee fighters are more typically in need of AD thanPD. If you are playing a caster (typically mid lane) and are looking for PD look towards power armor and/or power lifesteal. The PA will help against other casters as you will typically fight them in mid lane and the PLS will help sustain. Hope that helps.

    I'm not really seeing what comparing Jokers Crowbar to Twoface' Coin does for this argument, some early flat HP augments could be nice on AP champs like Shazam, AtomicGL or even someone more fragile like GL Prime.
    There does need to be more options for PD champs.

    Theres the insanely strong cooldown per level + penetration augments and you say casters have weak augments?

    Pen & CDR are easy enough to get in game.
