Lately i have seen alot of starts with 9 pots or more and not getting boots or any main items. They usually get a flask and alot of health potions. Worked well when i was jayce and rumble since they healed the ammount of poke i could put out.

It's definitely viable, and potentially broken versus pokers/AP champs.

It's not going to do much for your versus someone like Pantheon who just dives your *** when he pleases, but it's amazing versus ANYONE who pokes. So yea, basically, Jayce and Rumble won't be having much fun in top if the opponent does this; Especially because they have no innate sustain of their own.

its more than just viable.
Since you don't need to start boots anymore, you just want to start with as many consumables as possible. An important benefit you get from starting with just consumables is that you can get an early ward if you're top or mid and be safe from ganks.

If you start boots against someone who started flask you pretty much instantly lose the lane nowadays.

Flask + pots/wards seems to be pretty standard on mid and top these days.

Because people are set in their ways; it takes some time to adjust. I tend to start boots still on AD carries as I like the mobility.

^ Longsword master race.

Then again, you don't use Flash.

That. And boots allow for an additional Health Potion which is another 150 health. Also I tend to play pure auto-attack champs (e.g. Draven, Caitlyn) and they put the mobility to good use.

Crystalline Flask + one sight ward and 5 Health Potions is very common and powerful...

I freaking hate it when they do it against my AP Yi l0l. Completely destroys all my harass on them.. I think riot will nerf that item soon. They'll raise the item's cost I think

Thanks to TinyStar for the sig :3
