Frozen Mallet is only needed on champions which need to stay in AA range to sustain themself, means Warwick and Sion. But Warwick can probably even do it without it.

It's pretty much only good on Quinn and Riven as a later item.

Why would Riven need that with her stupid high amount of mobility and 2 forms of CC?

because she can actually apply it and it provides her with added tankiness

it's useless on champions who can't apply it

Wow am I dreaming

Nick said something correct.

Riven doesn't need it because she 1 shots people with her full combo and because of all her gap closers, no point in slowing dead squishies.

FM is useful on either melees who need to stick or ranged champions who need to kite, which isn't a lot.

Ranged carries have Shiv + range + peel to kite people, so FroMal is completely useless

Melees usually have the problem of not being able to get to their target, not the inability to stick (see: Udyr, Darius. Once they get in your face it's extremely hard to get them off). The only ones who actually have this problem are garbage champions like Sion or Fiora.

:(

Fiora's not that bad... but that's irrelevant. (Actually Fiora doesn't really even need it since she's played more as assassin and ult-bot but w/e) But yes, generally melees are designed so that if they have trouble reaching an opponent, they *usually* have some way to stick to them if they do get close. That's why I run Blade of the Ruined King sometimes on Darius for the active. I do run Frozen Mallet on Garen and Olaf sometimes but even then I'm not convinced I should. Honestly the stat distribution is awkward and doesn't really help either.

A tanky riven that peels for her team and doesn't instantly die is a thing, at least in Dominion. FM is pretty good for that.

Tanky Riven isn't and has never been a thing in SR.

FMal sucks on EVERYONE now. It's not because it's a niche item but because its stats are horrible for its price.
