Last Whisper
  • Cost increased to 2400 gold from 2135 gold.

Considering the nerfs they also did to The Black Cleaver
I think Riot is trying to tell us something....

Youmuu's is still more expensive than Last Whisper.

The early Brutaliser is nice, and the GP10 on Avarice Blade isn't bad either, but still...

Utility wise Last Whisper doesn't provide anything except a means of penetrating enemy armor and a bit of attack damage. Having it cost more means it takes more effort to buy the item, instead of just "Oh I need ArP quick, time for Last Whisper."

I'd assume Riot had this sort of idea behind it. Just throwing out what I think.

How about you delete the text on your other threads OP and enter a "Please delete this thread" instead?
Would keep rash ppl from posting into 4 different threads...


@Topic

Riot isn't telling us anything but rather realizing that their idea to "Improve damage dealing in order to change gameplay and keep it interesting" backfired.
And now they're refusing to redo some major changes and rather trying to counter them by changing another variable.

Guess Preseason is going to last a while with some major counter changes against damage dealers incoming.

^ This.

Also, Avarice Blade takes 67 minutes to pay for itself if you don't count the extra gold per kill. When was the last time you had a 67 minute game? Yeah. Each gold per kill takes 10 seconds off of the payoff time. So, if you got 100 CS, you take off 1000 seconds or 17 minutes. So, you would have to get it early enough that it would make a difference, all while it doesn't give you semi-useful stats.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

@Darcurse, sorry I didn't think of that.

@Topic, I never bothered with Avarice Blade after I found out it's a waste of gold to invest in. (Before Season 3 btw).

I'd much rather build early The Brutalizer then get my other core/important items complete before buying Youmuu's Ghostblade if I was going to.

100 cs isn't all that hard to get considering you should be buying avarice around the 6-8 minute mark. By the time it's 25 minutes you should have repaid it if you're cs'ing well.

But then you're better off getting The Black Cleaver for an extra 300g.

I don't think you're including the passive gold gain, if you get it early enough, get to at least 200 cs by 25 min, and don't buy anything else, I can pretty well guarantee you'll have enough for it to have paid itself off.
