Now I have a question, it is very very rare that one is able to finish out their build before a game ends. We will assume they get through the 4th, 5th or maybe 6th item on average. Now for those last couple of items, I've done calulations, but that means nothing if I don't get in there and test it.

Problem is, how often do you get to test the 6th or 7th item? Not very often for the long long games take a little over an hour. Then I see players still not finished with their build.

tl;dr verison: While I know testing is important, but if we rarely get to test an item in a build. Then would it be okay to leave it at speculation, and throw it in?

By that point you really should be building situationally anyways.

Ah, okay. I was just curious because I'm sitting here doing calculations, and thinking about (beating my head against my desk), and trying to choose the correct item. So many champions...so many items that counter them...too much math. Its summer.

Everyone knows that if you get to your seventh item, you are doing something wrong.

^^ I think he means instead of a Doran's item or something.

I don't get what you are asking...

if you are referring to what items to come up with a build, always plan for a full build because it DOES happen...I have gotten all items + all elixirs 30-50 or so times give or take some...

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

Yes Wrath it does happen, but not as often as I'd like it to because I like to do extensive testing before I confirm that this item works with this build...so on and so forth.

I usually find that the final items of my build are:
A) Situational, or
B) No-brainers.

What kind of items are you having trouble testing that a little theorycrafting can't fix?

^exactly.

Most items you shouldn't need to "test". Based on that math and stats it gives you should be able to deduct if it will work well and synergize well with your champ and other items...

and the last few items are usually situational as well like everyone else said, such as for AP carries you don't usually see void staff or abyssal rushed :P
