I need some advice from some Shaco vets. Is Infinity Edge worth it when you have Deceive? I find myself playing AD Shaco these days and have fallen in love with his burst. My personal play style revolves around Youmuu's Ghostblade and I usually follow that up with a Trinity Force. I want to follow strong with Infinity Edge, but I'm confused if its worth it. Any answers or ideas?

Sounds like an expensive build with no durability.

Shaco being by far the squishiest Assassin in the game it might not be worth it.

You're weighing potential burst (which as an assassin is good) versus durability (which overall is good).

Riot should implement more HP items for DDs.

First I'd think about getting Youmuu's Ghostblade, ofc MS, ArP, AD is great but do you rly need that AS and crit?
If you think Youmuu's worth buying, I.E. should be obligatory.
But you should get I.E. as your 4th one maybe.

e.g. Brutalizer -> boots -> survival item-> Youmuu -> I.E.

If you lose youmuu's and replace with GA, I.E / GA / TF is not a bad core.

Infinity Edge is great, but your build is expensive, and if youre not making a good job, you wont be able to buy even the first items.

I enjoy Youmuu's Ghostblade because the attack speed on it is situational, it can be easily swapped for Wriggle's Lantern. Should I grab I.E? I always feel like its a waste because my burst always finishes my opponents.

I normally run an it, bt, madred's, and FoN with either a pd or a ga and ofc boots of mobility. works great, since the "crit" in Hallucinate is different. it's a damage multiplier just like his Backstab. IMO, though, [madred's bloodrazor]] is quite powerful thanks to the massive damage multiplier he gets.

i usually build wringles, then finish boots, brutalizer,resistances,yomumus,GA, if im fed Trinity and if not banshee's. Last item depends on the situation. And if its super late game you might want to sell your wringles for somthing you need more
Please +rep me if im helpful :)

You get Ghost blade because you can activate it under stealth without breaking it, letting you travel great distances.

My core right now:

Wriggle
Boots
Ghostblade
Bruttelizer
Guardian angel

After that you can go IE or TF.
