Edit: Now that I think about it a price decrease wouldn't be too bad with the new top lane meta of massing pots and wards and just farming for late game.
I know soloq normally didn't do it, but I would get early oracles all the time and it was definetly OP. well your edit is the biggest issue. It's impossible for that 400 to pay off early, especially with less g on ward kills. You'll spend 400g for maybe 3 wards and to keep towers from takin too much damage. There is no way it's worth that much.
@impy, so are you saying 3's/proving grounds undercharges? Cause the oracles there will always be helpful if they have a stealth champion/items like teemo shrooms and Shaco boxes. Even with a baron dance, what makes an oracles better than 2 pinks? They can ward out pretty much the same area, cost is split and is cheaper, and you don't have to worry about it being useless gold cause they won't die asap
