So say you're losing your lane from a silly death or a gank. What is your reaction to the situation, what items do you buy?

Also, how do you guys feel about Doran's Blade or Doran's Ring stacking to catch up? A cheap boost in lane or prolonging your full build?

depends. typically more resists. mr for mid, armor vs bruisers top.

typically, items don't turn a lost lane around, jungle ganks do.

Don't you buy a gold/5 item like Heart of Gold when you're behind?

Gold/10 items actually make you weaker in the short term, so it can be a risk to build them when you're already behind.

They certainly won't help you 'reclaim your lane'.

I usually go far a Doran's item and try to farm my way up.

There are generally two philosophies to itemization in lane.

1. Buy early game items and shut the enemy down enough that they won't be able to beat you later with their better itemization for mid/late.

2. Build for mid/late and farm safely so you can crush late game.

I personally subscribe to #2 myself, but I play mordekaiser.

Usually resists.

Doran's Shield at top is amazing for that regard.

If I find myself losing my lane, I pull some standard Jayce and take it back by continuing my build like nothing is wrong. I have never gotten more than 2 of any Dorans item, mainly because anymore delays my rule of getting a Tri Force before 23 minutes. I could probably become better if I start varying my itemization, however most games I play it ends before I can claw my way back, or I get overly fed and I don't need to worry about reclaiming my lane.

Jungler ganks help, however, and I always take those opportunities.
Thank you MissMaw for this bomb *** sig!

I typically buy 2 Doran's Blade on my first b when I am ADC or solo top. 20 ad, 6% lifesteal, 160 health, pretty nice stats for cheap price.

Dorans if you think you can catch up, gp/10 if you cant.
