The slow usually will go to waste if you build both. It is high enough on trinity to not need to pay the 4k for the other slow. It's really just for cash efficiency as you are wasting the trinitys phage.

I wouldn't see a problem with it. The slow on Trinity Force is a 25% chance while the Frozen Mallet is a 100% chance. They also will slow 40% as opposed to Trinity Force's 30%. Most champions that go Trinity Force can successfully go Frozen Mallet + Atma's Impaler. I guess the 20 bonus AD is nice as well.

Well, there's the whole cost of getting both, not to mention the fact that GP has his own slow on AAs and Parrrlay. So getting both isn't cost effective, you're getting a lot of health and no resists.

If you're not a fan of Warmog's then I'd recommend getting Trinity Force and Randuin's. Relatively same price as FM and it affords you more durability all around.

Or if you're really into the whole 100% chance slow, then get Wit's End and Frozen Mallet.

Atma's Impailer is now a terrible item, so don't get it...Like ever.

But what do you care what I say?

Redundant.
If you want flat health go for Warmog's.

One third of Trinity Force is about the slow on Phage. If you want to buy Frozen Mallet just don't buy Trinity Force and buy other items.

I only use it on Talon and sometimes on Riven because the 100% is really good on them and the Sheen proc is also amazing.

I get TF on all champions, including ones that "supposedly" shouldn't use it. Because like Phreak, I believe in MORE DAMAGE.
