ZUL'JIN REWORK CONCEPT

Hero and Skin Suggestions
Hey guys! Here are some ideas to streamline Zul'jin's talents and try to bring him into the meta. They are simple yet meaningful changes. His lack of mobility and the fact that he has to build his power over the course of the game really hurts him to be the hyper carry he's supposed to be. Let me know what you guys think!

Trait: Berserker/Amani Rage - Zul'jin passively gains 1% attack speed for every 1% of his max health missing. Toggle D to increase his Basic Attack damage equal to 2% of his max health and consumes 2% of his max health and change Regeneration to Degeneration. This damage ignores Armor.
Now has a 5 seconds cooldown

Baseline Quest You Want Axe? removed.
Basic Attack damage increased accordingly
Basic Attack range increased from 5,5 to 6

Q: Grievous Throw - Throw an axe into a line, dealing some damage and marking enemies for 3 seconds. Zul'jin's Basic Attacks deal 50% more damage to marked enemies and grants him 10% movement speed for 2 seconds, up to 20%.
Now pierces all target.
The increased Basic Attack range and bonus movement speed should make up for the lack of mobility.
Skillshot, 8 seconds cooldown, 50 mana cost

W: Twin Cleave - Throws 2 axes in a large, circle arc that revoles twice, each dealing 90 damage (down from 116) and slowing by 10% for 2 seconds, stacking up to 30%.
60 mana cost, 14 seconds (up from 10 seconds)

E: Regeneration - Zul'jin channels to regenerate 50% (up from 30%) of his maximum Health over 4 seconds. Moving while channeling or taking damage will interrupt this effect.
Instant (channeling), 50 mana cost, 25 seconds cooldown
E: Degeneration - Activate to cause Zul'jin to instantly lose 50% of his current Health and heal for that amount over 10 seconds.
Instant, 50 mana cost, 25 seconds cooldown

R1: Taz'dingo - Basically no changes.

R2: Guillotine - Damage increased from 330 to 350 (old nerf revert).
