I've noticed lately that a lot of people don't really like a couple items here on Mobafire. A couple that comes to mind are Nashor's Tooth and Youmuu's Ghostblade. I was just wondering why this is.

Nashor's is just bad overall.

Youmuu's is only good on like, a small selection of champs though.

So they are niche picks. what makes nashor's bad though? Is it bad by comparison to other items or what?

Nashor's is bad because there are so few champs who use all of the stats.

Jax and Diana do, but they prefer more AP, in Diana's case, or AD/AP, in Jax's case.

It's sub-optimal, in every way.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Youmuu's is insanely good on a select few very unpopular champion, like Master Yi and AD Sion (I consider youmuu's core on ad sion). It's also pretty good on Tryndamere and Gangplank. 4 champs that you never see, hence the reason you never see youmuu's

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

I use Youmuu's Ghostblade on Eve. It's pretty good, TBH :P

Nashors is just fairly marginal. The ghostblade in my eyes is just a situational offensive item.

Another item you don't see much of anymore is MBR
Thanks goes to JEFFY40HANDS for a gorgeous Karma sig
Hey, you should help me on acquiring Medieval Twitch!! :D

I dont agree. It fits nicely the AS-AP niche. Kayle comes to mind and Kog'Maw is very fun with it, IMO.
