First off I did a search for, "active items" and there was no thread similar to this on the first page.

Second, to explain the thread title, I am someone who has much difficulty using active items effectively; therefore I have found items to replace them that share similar features.

Here is my list:

Banner of Command: Banshee's Veil
Blade of The Ruined King: Trinity Force
Face of the mountain: eye of the equinox
Hextech GLP-800: Rod of Ages
Hextech Gunblade: Guinsoos rageblade
Hextech Protobelt: Liandrys torment
Locket of the iron solari: Spirit Visage
Mercurial Scimitar: Maw of Malmortius
Mikaels Crucible: Athenes Unholy Grail
Ohmwrecker: Sunfire Cape
Randuins Omen: Dead mans plate
Ravenous Hydra: Bloodthirster
Righteous Glory: Rod of Ages
Titanic Hydra: steraks gage
Youmoos ghostblade: Deaths dance
Zekes harbringer: Iceborn Gauntlet
Zhonyas Hourglass: Lich Bane
Zz'Rot Portal: Guardian angel

I highly suggest that if you have no intention of participating in theorizing that you leave this thread alone because it will frustrate you and cause you to post simple and offensive posts such as "y tho" or "that's worthless." without proper explanation.

"If you have any questions or suggestions towards these item replacements; that is why I made this thread."

I suppose that sentence is vague, so heres another explanation.

The items on the left are items with actives on them. The ones on the right are items I use to replace them.

You're not making your point clear and acting all defensive on me.

I'm guessing you think of replacing one item with another, but since that's a terrible idea (every item has its niche and is more useful in it than any other item) I gave you the benefit of the doubt to explain whatever else you could be trying to say.

Why would you replace an item with an active for another? Even without using their actives most items are worth their price over others. And in the cases where they're not worth it if you don't use their actives, you may not be able to "patch" that specific need with other item.

Now if you're doing it for entertainment purposes, I'd change Turbo Chemtank for Dead Man's Plate (for the movespeed) and Zhonya's Hourglass for Abyssal Mask or maybe Rylai's Crystal Scepter (for the survivability).

It makes absolutely ZERO sense to replace items with an active. The active is there FOR SOMETHING...

Yea, like Ekki is saying, you can't really replace active items in a build. The active items are bought for their active and not usually much else.

Maw gives MR like merc scim, yes. But it doesn't give the CC removing active that's really damn important sometimes.

Athenes in no way replaces crucible, again, because of the CC removal. IT gives similar stats, sure, but the active is the main reason you get it.

If you're listing things for people that are just bad at using actives on items, I have one piece of advice. Just get good at the game. Learn to use actives. It's just how the game is right now.

I know some people that had trouble getting used to active items so they preferred to replace those items with actives rather than using these active items, which is not a good way of going imo. Some items can simply not be replaced with others because their functionality is completely different, so I do recommend just learning to press the 1-4 buttons by learning active-dependant champions like supports.
Change is gooooood
