League of Legends (LoL) Question: What is the opportune time to buy the new Last Whisper?
What is the opportune time to buy the new Last Whisper?
Here's all the work I've done on it so far. If someone could tell me if this is correct and/or their input on it all.
I'm just going to simplify this the best I can. In the early game, if you rush this item when they rush chain, you will deal 8.37% increased damage, assuming they have no armor runes... If they have armor runes (just yellows) you will deal 9.16% increased damage.
After you come back to lane again, Let's say you've picked up 25 AD. Those percentages skyrocket. That 9.16 turns into 10.955. That's just picking up a pick axe, let's say you get 40 damage and it becomes 12.1%.
The equation is AD x (100/100+(armor)) If your AD is 100, and they have no armor. Your attack will deal 100 damage
100 x (100/100) = 100
The reason these percentages increase, is that a percentage that was 8% damage at 100 damage, will scale up to 16% at 200
100 x (100/163) = ~8% difference with LW
200 x (100/163) = ~16% difference with LW
If I'm wrong on any of this math, please prove it to me, but if this works how I've put it, LW is an EXTREMELY strong item on its own right now, and just gets better as the game goes on.
Just now I played 2 custom games with a friend
One where I rushed LW
One where I rushed Pick axe LS
In both games I had LS as starting item
My friend had a total of 50 bonus armor
Results of first game (LW rush) 25 AD and 30% bonus armor pen
auto deals = 66 base (82) enhanced
Results of second game (AD rush) 35 AD
Auto deals = 66 base (83 enhanced
So, why does this make sense? the q has a 50% scaling with AD, so the % damage was worth more by far. The w has 100% AD scaling, meaning the AD was more worth it if its dealing less than 100 damage
