Got a weird thought today, but how good would it be? Her E and R have some decent AP scalings which could justify the AP, but especially the spell vamp and low-cooldown active could be really good in comparison to the Blade of the Ruined King.

Synergy with Q is good but the spell vamp is pretty much wasted. I did try Liandry's Torment on her and that actually felt pretty good. I love gunblade but not sure if it's worth, you should test it and see how often the active is available to you and of how much use it is.

Spell vamp isn't really that bad though because she can get a lot of hp back from clearing a full wave with W. Or at least that is what I'm thinking. Guess I'm gonna test it in a normal game tonight.

Maximum Magic Damage: 140 / 245 / 350 / 455 / 560 (+ 140% bonus AD)

Bonus AD is 50. ( Martial Mastery + Gunblade, pretty much ignoring Brute Force ). That times 1.4 which makes the total of 70.

Spell Vamp is 20% but only 33% effective because it's AoE, thus only 6.7% rounded up. Maximum healing from W is: 14.07 / 21.105 / 28.14 / 35.175 / 42.21 on a single target. Considering you can hit 3 targets at the same time it would be: 42.21 / 63.315 / 84.42 / 105.525 / 126.63.

So I guess we can conclude that the Spell Vamp isn't going to be very effective.

You can actually hit a full minion wave, or am I just being stupid? It would still be reasonably effective if you'd heal about 250 from a full minion wave.

I went with 3 because that's plausible but hitting 6 minions over the entire duration seems unlikely. Also, keep in mind that this is maximum potential so it doesn't include resistances.

Maybe create a more ap oriented build with gunblade and Liandry? I dunno. I guess it's worth investigating. I mean, I kinda hate BotRK.

Buying it for sustain in lane phase is an awful idea -_-

Considering the maths I did on the spell vamp, yeah it is. Didn't count the life steal obviously, so it's probably still a good item for sustainability.

Tested it. It's K but definitely worse than hydra and blade.
