Ok, I'm hoping this would NOT be a habit, as I usually hate these guys who just show up on a forum and start "suggesting" new stuff to people who have been there for years already, knowing all the problems there is. Sadly, I couldn't help it this time around either.

So, here it goes, again since I'm new to LoL, I don't really know which item build into what exactly, if to anything at all !

Thus, while reading a guide, I see a recommendation for Doran's Ring, I mouse-over it, and it looks like a nice item, but I have absolutely no idea if it can be useful later in the game by building up into something useful, or should be sold out to clear-up an item slot. After I found out it doesn't lead any where, I started trying to skip it. < Shows you how bad I can be at playing the game (-_-) >

A second scenario, would be a guide recommending Haunting Guise. It's kinda a nice item, But, I would rather get Hextech Revolver which Sacrifices the penetration and a bit of HP, for a cheaper, more AP, and even spellvamp. To be frank, personally, Haunting Guise is only beneficial from my point of view as a step towards Liandry's Torment.


Now, both scenarios could have been solved by a click away from the guide to the items' page, but quite frankly, I think it can be helpful to add it to the tool-tip. I would be more focused on the guide.

It would be even more helpful if the recipe would be added for a single final item. ie: showing the recipe tree for Liandry's Torment, in the tool-tip of Haunting Guise, preferably highlighting the icon of Haunting Guise in the recipe to indicate it is the focused element of the recipe, yet allowing me to see what is needed next to reach the final item.

Sadly, as of now, I can't come up with a more "Helpful" way to deal with Sheen other than listing the items it builds into, as having the 3 items recipe trees would be a quarter-a-screen tool-tip !

A simple "Builds into" comment would be great for tooltips, but you would stumble across the problem of very base items having a tonne of "Builds into" icons. For guides, however, a little pot/sack of gold at the corner of an item indicating the item gets sold would be cool. Don't know how it'd be coded though.

To be honest, that somewhat prevents these "noobs" from creating bad builds and guides.

Also, Haunting Guise is pretty good item because it gives penetration, hp and ability power

This was suggested before, but hasn't been implemented. My guess would be it is not really necessary and might make the mouseover too large. If you click on the item and go to it's item database page it has the things it builds into, so there is a way to see this information even if it's not just by mousing over.

Also, don't worry about making suggestions, it's fine. :P

Don't go off topic, and it's been addressed recently. It's on the to-do list.
