In my task of making an irelia guide... i've put myself up to the task of trying ALLL the items on her... I wanted to try all and every item in the scenario's that seemed to best suit the items long story short, i came against an akali top. With karthus mid and thought.. Squishy team? i'm gonna go tanky ad *nods* but they haz duo ap :o so i haz to build thar wits end.. but then as the game dragged on and i almost bought the wits.... **** happened, i had totally left out hexdrinker as a possible item.

It's actually pretty ****ing darn cost effective and just 2 gud, actually think adding it as a standard counter to duo-ap squishy comp.

thoughts?

Yeah Hexdrinker is a fair item when playing against champions like Karthus.

Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.

I like Hexdrinker a lot ^_^ I can't really comment on it on Irelia, because I've never played her, aside from the numbers look decent and the item seems to fit her kit nicely.

I absolutely love it on Riven ^_^

Its a good item early/mid game, but mages are so powerful, with 500+ damage late game (tons of damage)

You should get it fast, and sell later

^totally agreed on that. When laning against a mage in top, such as Vladimir or Rumble it is an amazing item. On Irelia, however, Wit's End seems like a better choice.

well, i'm just theory-crafting. I'm talking about burst ***ain, AD irelia. Not sustained, AS irelia.

Only medicore.
I'd gladly swap for some seperate HP + AD early against balanced teams.
You'll exchange it for another item, if you manage to hit the limit, anyways.

That shield is good enough to catch the last nuke aimed at you if you're already too far away for a 2nd shot afterwards and that's that.

The power of hexdrinker is that it makes plays.


So it is powerful, because making plays is what matters.

However, I find it a little to expensive to buy very often.
