Why Malz is viable in Dominion
Another thing to remember when playing Dominion in general, itemization is much faster than in a regular LoL game. For example: You can usually get a deathcap after a few minutes if you take bottom lane and farm minions. For this reason I get my AP up first then work on survivability.
Final note: MP5 items are much less useful in Dominion given the quick turnaround i.e. death and port back to base. Also, items requiring time or use to upgrade are much less useful given short fights. For this reason I avoid Archangel staff and Rod of ages
1- They can both be cast during your ultimate, making it OP if you spec into exhaust and have the decreased magic res.
2- If they do happen to survive your ult, you will have ignite and Malfeic visions on them, once again they are dead.
3- Exhaust is just as good an escape tool as ghost
So really you only miss out on the ability to get to turrets faster, but if the other team is all dead, you will cap them anyways.
