Well, I'm started to realize now that people have started to use Iceborn as a replacement for Triforce and S. Shiv as a replacement for Phantom Dancer. What i am really wondering though is which is better and reasons for it, or when to buy each item. Please help, I am very confused about these.

Triforce got nerfed a lot so Iceborn is better because of the AoE slow it has and the Sheen proc you get plus the CDR which is always a good stat to have

Statikk Shiv and PD are very similar except for the passive shiv has and one gives a little bit better stats and on is lower price than the other, honestly to me its all about preference between these two

Trinity Force just got destroyed honestly. I wouldn't really get it on anyone anymore. Iceborn Gauntlet is also pretty OP on any ranged champion that can kite and that scales at least a little bit with AP. AKA Ezreal. For me it's clear that I just get Iceborn Gauntlet or none of these two items.

About Phantom Dancer vs Statikk Shiv, I really am not sure yet. I feel like people underestimate Phantom Dancer but at the same time Statikk Shiv is just really good... I get Shiv on Ezreal because it's just better than PD but on most ADC's I still prefer the good old PD. For example I think it's still good on Vayne and Tristana. Some may disagree.

Thanks to TinyStar for the sig :3

Gauntlet - Only really good on Ezreal when you want to kite forever (it has pretty bad damage).

Triforce - Kinda sucks, probably would only consider on Corki.

Shiv - Early/mid game focused, poking, pushing lanes.

PD - Late game focused, single target DPS.

TF to pricy and less viable with bruiser playstyle unfavorable atm.

And PD compared to Statikk: Single target against multi target. Simple as that.

ooooooooooooooooh MAYBE on Irelia but as you may know, Irelia players are crying because all the items she uses got nerfed :P. I would just get Frozen Mallet now honestly. HP is pretty OP ATM.
