Build Guide by
Not Updated For Current Season
Wit's End: Attack speed, magic resist, replaces Stark's Fervor on caster-heavy enemy teams. 42 damage (from the mana drained -> damage ability) is nothing to sneeze at.
Madred's Bloodrazor: Against the more and more popular all-chewy/tanky teams, this will help if inserted into your build.
The Bloodthirster: Pseudo-snowball effect when farmed (giving it a potential 100 Attack Damage and 25% lifesteal) Consider it when Stark's isn't too great of a choice (i.e. team comp, enemy team comp). Don't take lifesteal-based items or oriented builds with heavy CC flying around, though.
The Brutalizer: Want some quick, cheap damage. Not getting a Phage for some reason? Throw in a decent amount of CD recuction, and you have yourself a good item.
Phage/Frozen Mallet is a core item in most of my builds.
Banshee's Veil: Need some Magic Resist? Gives a large amount of health and mana as well. Great item BEFORE it's passive spell-blocking shield.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter: Tons of AP and Health, plus a slow on your blind and more slow for shrooms. Great for pure AP builds. Could replace Mallet on AP/Hybrid build, but I prefer the slow on the auto attacks, plus the increased health.
