Haven't seen one in such a long time so I assume that's because it's not a very good choice anymore / situational
Thanks to FatelBlade, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, TheNamelessBard, GrandmasterD, aviseras and koksei for the awesome signatures

I think it was when the recipe has changed: previously you could build it with the old Phage which gave reasonable amount of stats and a nice passive, but now it's Giant's Belt, Ruby Crystal and a Pickaxe which gives nothing more but flat stats.

Other than that, Trinity Force became a so much better alternative for only 428 extra gold, as Trinity Force gives a great speed buff and a spellblade passive and the items where you build it from are a lot better.

I really like it on tanks and bruisers. Because if you don't have the burst or enough cc, the enemy still has a chance to run away with their life.

Costs 3300 gold

gives 700 health which is roughly 1575 gold worth of health and 30 AD which is roughly 1055 gold worth of stats. Those together come out to 2630 worth of stats. So you're not even breaking even on the stats you get from the item. So you're basically paying 670 gold for a slow.

The main thing is, you don't even break even in terms of stats per gold, and the components are all kind of bulky and don't build into anything. If it still built out of phage it might be a little better, but giant's belt, pickaxe and ruby crystal?
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

I don't even know why they increased the cost after the change, before, it did only cost 3000. I think it is another one of those items riot just wants dead.

I personally still buy it in a lot of scenarios instead of GA or Banshee when I play adc.
Plus, sometimes I like to buy a Giants Belt around 20 min, if the opponents assassin(s) are doing
better than they should.

Recipe sucks, that is pretty much the main reason why it fell out of favor.
