I used to get it on every champion because jukes into bushes really bothered me.
Then I realized that it's pretty bad (will probably be better in S3 once PD gets destroyed). The only reason I'd get it is if I were facing a stealth-escaping champion like Wukong and LeBlanc and Shaco. The reality is that getting Oracle's is much better in those situations.
The damage is low, and the AS bonus isn't something champions need because it is so abundant in the form of steroid on the champion itself or in the many, many AS items. S3 seems to push that even more with so many items providing AS that most players will treat them like CDR items because of the hard cap.
Hurricane+Lighbringer will probably be OP on Ashe because she has no spell based AS boost to push her over the limit and 110% AS on her would be nice, but otherwise, Lightbringer is too situational to be worth the purchase.
