Additionally, these iterations of The Brutalizer and The Black Cleaver allow our more spell-focused ranged carries like Corki or Graves to have a viable alternative to Last Whisper that will give them great utility if they find themselves on a team with lot of physical damage characters.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more!
BC has been one of my favorite items for a long time. So hear me out here.
- 55 attack damage
- 10 ArP (Maybe 10% ArP if you're really stubborn about making this thing hybrid)
- 10% Cooldown (because it builds from Brut now)
- 10 flat ArP per stack, 4 possible stacks, procs on things like buckshot, etc etc
Keep BC as the health-stacking tank killer it should be.
- Same as before. :P
Keep this item as the Armor-Stacking tank killer it should be.
As an AD Carry, it's my job to build items that counter (or attempt to counter) what the enemy is doing. After the rework these items are too similar, and BC is the obvious choice (because it gives it's benefit to the whole team and makes LW look like a ninny item). Again, just my thoughts...I don't think the flat ArP should be taken away from BC, because there's already an armor reduction % item....last whisper.
If you want to find a way to make both of those items build from Brutalizer, maybe that could work, I dunno.
That reminds me....what about Youmuu's Ghostblade? I'm aware of the active and such...is there anything you're going to do there? Does it still build from Brutalizer? Is it going to become some kind of option-pick above/below black cleaver? What if someone needs/wants to build both?
Can we change Youmuu's to be viable to the same champions, yet have the ability to be chosen or not chosen over BC based upon what the enemy is building? Something needs to happen there.
Thanks for reading! I think the changes to BC are interesting, but I see some issues there (especially having it build from Brutalizer and become a Brut/LW Hybrid).
Help me out here! Live long and prosper. Feel free to contact me to clarify. Not that it's my business all that much. :P
