I'm not going to read any of this thread because Atma's Impaler is one of the 5 worst items in the game. It doesn't provide enough stats for the cost of the item. Someone ran the numbers once, you need something like 5.5k Health for the item to be cost effective. Don't build Atmas on anyone.

I could do an Item tier list blog or something, that might be fun.

Please do that, lasty. An item tier list would actually be really useful.

Sunfire isn't gold efficient yet we all buy it instead of atmas though :P says something about *shudders* atmas.

I'm not saying that Atma's Impaler is the **** but the reason no one buys it is not the gold efficiency, I wanted to point that out. The metagame, champion picks, item builds, rune pages, etc. all exist for a reason yet very few people out there know what they are doing and why they are doing it.

If a new player asks if Atma's Impaler is a good choice on Renekton or not, then I'm not someone who will laugh and turn the other way because when you look at the numbers it's just a solid item. Also there's no reason why would be a terrible build as Atma's and Cleaver make for a great combination.

This thread started off in a completely different manner although that doesn't mean we can't have a proper discussion about the item and asks ourselves "Wait a minute, why is no one building this?" because fact remains that Atma's presents itself as a perfect item for a bruiser and is one of the most cost-efficient items in the game yet no one builds it.

Because there are better choices. Haven't we been through this already?

Not saying it hasn't been done yet, I'm just stating that this:

is the wrong approach to this and has definitely nothing to do with what MOBAFire is about. I felt the need to point out and remind everyone of the fact that this question is actually a good one.

I gave an explanation as to why Atmas is bad. For it to be more cost efficient than say a Sunfire or a Hydra you need ~5.5k health I don't care what you read on a website. They nerfed it back in season two. It used to give more AD based on health and it was viable on several champions but it was never optimal.

It does make a hell of a lot more sense on Garen than on Renekton. spin2crit2win
