^That's like saying Zhonya is useless -.-


Well I guess a lot of people like Zhonya. I suppose it is good in some circumstance to escape a burst of damage if timed right. But Zhonya freezes your movement, and allows you to do no damage. I find other things would be more useful unless your fighting a Trynd who doesn't die for 5 seconds, you could activate Zhonya to wait out his timer, then finish him. But overall, I like other items better. But I'mma noob.

I prefer buying Warmog´s Armor, because it gives you 1000 hp (guardian angel gives you 50 armor, 30 mr and 750 hp heal every 5 min.) and it gives you prety cool health regen, (5s=1% from 2500=25;1s=5hp) about 300 hp per minute, 1500 hp per 5 minutes (in compare with Guardian angel). I am buying guardian only in final teamfights.
for michielexplosivo: it is almost useless only if you are playing champion without escape mechanisms, i am sometimes buying it on kha zix, and his E has saved my life (in combination with Guardian Angel) so many times....

Need late game to escape the 60+ second death timer. 2 people with this, even if they you kill you two first, both will respawn and either have to be focused again, or they will wreak havoc. Sometimes the enemy can't just stand near someone being revived, its still a teamfight.

Except that you can control when you use Zhonya and use it to prevent a ton of incoming damage (Nunu's ult, etc.), whereas this one can proc after getting ambushed and lead to you wasting it for an important fight. In a team fight this isn't very viable on a tank either because by the time you resurrect the rest of your team is scattered and/or dead. So unless you died like 2/3 or later through a winning fight they'll just kill you again when you rez (750hp is chump change end-game) unless you have some kind of escape plan, but if you did why didn't you use it before the first death? IMO this is good for squishy carries that get focused.

most people just wait untill you revive then they kill you again
so the effect is pretty useless late game :)

With Malphite, I love getting this item mid game :)

My build for him is usually:

Philosopher's Stone > Boots of Speed > Heart of Gold > Merc Treads > Glacial Shroud > Guardian Angel > blahblahblah

Really good for a tank ^^

Mostly true, but there are some circumstances where other survivability items like Quicksilver Sash are more appropriate. If you're not careful, you might just end up dying twice with this item, and the passive has a very lengthy cooldown. It certainly is very helpful on bruisers and carries alike though.

Great item if you are a hero that dies extremely easily. I like to play Ashe sometimes and she is one of the easiest heroes in the game to kill. Other than an Ultimate to stun, she has absolutely no defense or escape. 1 stun or snare and I'm dead if Flash isn't up. I found that grabbing this is quite a bargain. This has +armor, +resist, and the proc means a number of things. In Dominion it means I pop back up and shoot you off the cap.(Which might get you killed by the tower) In other games it means my team might have cleared the area by the time I revive. Enemy team zergs me, I die, they run away to avoid dying to my team, I res, they didn't get any gold. Get it? Or a fight might be going on and I die... get back up... then go back to shooting to help. I should also add that 750HP on a res isn't bad when your bar is 2k or less, that's basically a 750hp HEAL, which is more than what the spell "Heal" itself does. The summoner spell "Heal" is 590(Assuming you're lvl18) +10%(Assuming you have the talent)=649, 750>649. The Heal does hit your allies for half effect, but half of 649 is so little that it won't change any battle outcomes.

Bottom line is, if you die a lot, get this item.

stack Leviathan to full (gives out 15% bonus damage reduction), Warmog, MR and Armor items... you will not die and even if you die, you revive, tank about 5 seconds more for your team... then you get out alive STILL (therefore you dont lose your stack)

When used right with an AP caster, one of the best items in the game. You nuke up front in team fight, kill one, get focused and die, revive, throw more damage around, another probable kill, maybe actually die. Used right with veigar, annie, brand, u should be able to force 4v3s for the rest of ur team

the 750 health can last go a long way if you are playing a tank like Shen, Malphite or Rammus, or have a decent escape mechanism.

since the nerf of this item.. it is so useless late game. it only gives you like 750 damage which will last you about a second after you revive. you are better off buy a different magic resist item. as soon as i see someone with this item i know they are fresh meat.
