I think you agree that Atma's Impaler is actually not worth it on any champ and needs a buff. I think, the easiest way to bring it back would be to increase the passive to 1,75%. This way, 4000 HP = 70 AD, so Atma's Impaler would be only good if you stack HP, but still usefull.

What are your thoughts on Atma's Impaler?

Change Avarice Blade component into Pickaxe or BF Sword to make it scale better into late game.

Edit: derp, thought this was S2 LOL.

I will agree for the cost of the item the stats just are not there. I would think instead of adding more of a health ratio, add maybe a different buff to it like maybe additional health instead of critical strike chance.

Considering it's other stats, Atma's Impaler gets gold efficient at around 1100-1200 health. If it got that buff, it would actually start to beat items like Infinity Edge for total gold worth per slot.

Of course, that's if you stacked health, but getting health isn't really that hard. A Frozen Mallet and Warmogs is enough to get the job done for most tanky Level 18 champs.

I do think it needs some sort of small buff, but increasing the hp/dmg conversion ratio isn't the best idea. I'm just not sure what...

Cost efficiency =|= Viability. Just look at Nashor's Tooth for that.

I think its better than it use to be, now building out of Avarice Blade, but the item slot it takes up isn't worth the combined stats.

I think it's rather underrated but I think I know what is its problem. It's that it requires you to build around it to make the build more effective than other builds. Building around Atma's is: very expensive, leaves you weak/passive in laning phase, gives nearly no damage until the end of the game (if it's not over yet) and finally the build doesn't fit everybody.

How it could be fixed: Maybe reduce the conversion ratio but give it a flat AD bonus. Also, Avarice blade is getting buffed a little soon.

Thanks to TinyStar for the sig :3

I feel like champions that have synergy with critical strike are the only ones able to afford this purchase. They need to make the best out of its strengths and afford the losses. The amount of AD is unreliable.

All of the champs which would get Atma's Impaler get Youmuu's Ghostblade instead. (even Sion, which should scale best with it) GP uses Statikk Shiv.

I personally think the health scaling should be bonus only with a higher ratio. I like the idea of flat AD too.
