late game adc with ie, pd, and lw melts anyone unless ur a tank who built full armor, in which case the ap carry would melt u instantly
a 280 or 250 damage shield is nothing in a late game teamfight. r u suggesting 280 extra hp of true damage is enough to tank 5 ppl? u can get hit by 5 random auto atks from champs who built no ad items (base ad around 100 and u'd lose ur shield. sounds balanced?
plz reconsider ur post
edit: nvm, it's even worse than i though
base ad for many mages hits around 100 ad at lv 18. get hit by 3 autos and ur shield is gone
For you to be correct, shields would have to be the deciding factor in whether or not a tank lives or dies even more so than the tank's build. It's not a sound argument.
