So I've got this idea from a guide, and applied to AP Tanks such as Nautilus and Maokai. So I'm asking all of you, what do you think this item on them? Can he repleace the Abyssalic Scepter? Or is more of an item if I'm looking for an Offtank AP build?

Lich Bane is NOT a replacement to Abyssal Mask. I would only use Lich Bane when going full AP, and even then not as much.
You are going to need sufficient AP to make it worth it, and an ability on a short enough cooldown to proc it a lot. Few AP tanks can go that way, if any. It would be great on Singed, if only he had a spammable ability ( Poison Trail] is toggleable so it doesn't work). It's pretty much a must on AP Blitz, but noone plays AP Blitz, so yeah.

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

I need to tell you that you're right, you live and you learn. Thank you!
