League of Legends (LoL) Question: Thoughts on the new Guinsoo's Rageblade

    Thoughts on the new Guinsoo's Rageblade

    Just wondering how others feel about the changed Guinsoo's Rageblade, the possibilities it offers to different champions right now and where it fits into the builds now. :)
    Champions like Varus and Kog'Maw will be reaching their powerspike a little later in the game, but where does the Guinsoo's Rageblade come in? Second item or third?

    I don't play a lot of Guinsoo's Rageblade champions but I am just curious!

    The 10% AP scaling is a huge buff for Kayle and the fast melee stacking is great on Jax.
    Full AP Kai'Sa is probably viable now.

    I still don't see a melee rageblade champion besides Jax tho.

    Base stats lowered, scaling increased. Probably a second item because it scales with % bonus AD and % AP, possibly after Blade of the Ruined King.

    Jax is suddenly not as OP as before. Generally when I play Jax, I rush Trinity Force and then go for either Titanic Hydra or Guinsoo's Rageblade as a second item. I relied on Guinsoo's Rageblade for extra ability power on my w, Empower.

    I could imagine Guinsoo's Rageblade being great with Blade of the Ruined King. I'm not convinced Riot has nerfed the item sufficiently to deter it as a first item. The attack speed interaction per stack has made it easier to get maximum stats, even if the stats are less ideal.

    I feel Guinsoo's Rageblade in the current state will be stronger on Kai'Sa. The item is meant to benefit more than before by obtaining extra AD and AP through bonus scaling, which is her natural build-path. I imagine she will be a high-priority threat late game if she wasn't already.

    Thanks for the reply, I really enjoy playing Kai'Sa so I might try it on her!

    Generally Varus and Kog'Maw will rush Rageblade as their first item as it gives them a HUGE powerspike. Teemo will generally take it first or second, depending on the build. I've seen Vayne grab it before, but it's not super popular.
