80 Ability Power, 350 Mana, 30 Magic Resist, 7 Movement Speed. UNIQUE Passive: 100% chance when an ability is used that your next physical attack deals an additional 100% of your Ability Power in damage. This effect has a 3 second cooldown.

So I was wondering if casters even use physical attacks? or are those little magic balls they shoot considered something else? cause if they are physical than with 600+ AP on my veigar or annie we would kill if used correctly

All champions standard attacks are physical based.

For example Morgana after binding and soil combo uses alot of physical attacks. The animation is just to make it look nice. How would it look if ryze for example would shoot bullets or spears out of his hands? :PP

This is not true on most casters unfortunatly.
Due to 3 sec cooldown on the proc you will look like spell/attack+LB/spell/attack/spell/attack/spell/attack+LB

In pretty much most cases your char will automaticly push those auto attacks on the target anyway, so it is more or less going to be a "passive".

LB is also a great tool for casters to push towers faster. if you have any kind of skill shot or untargeted spell, try to use it while destroying turrets.

In theory Lich Bane rocks, when you're playing it doesn't.

It's safe to say that Lich Bane is overrated, mostly because everyone thinks they are able to do combo's like: Spell -> Autoattack -> Spell -> Autoattack, etc. But for most casters you can't nuke a target for more than a few seconds, and your attackspeed is somewhat pathetic so you barely get to use 1 auto-attack anyway. There is just one champion who uses this as a core item, Evelynn, then again we have champions like Ezreal, Sion, and Nunu.

But if you're really considering using it you have to know it's only because you have around 600AP, whenever that happens <.<, and that it's not to kill other champions but to bring down turrets. It could always be used as a last resort but if that's the case then I would just buy Cooldown Reduction or some Mana Regneration.

I would also cound AP blitz, AP Ezreal, Kassadin as top lichbane users. It is a wasted item on most 100% casters like ryze, veigar, annie, anivia imho.

Actually it is quite usful on ryze since he has no real means of taking out towers fast with out it with it he becomes a character that can do everything but support and tank

Yes but that's why you have other teammates to take down towers, Ryze isn't exactly the best backdoorer in the game. That slot could easily be replaced with a Zhonya's which would be more damage towards your other skills which would probably help a lot more rather than taking down a tower. Ace>Towers imo.
