I play support Alistar a lot, and I don't really use Heart of Gold for gold (in fact, it's nice that getting 2 cloth armor now upgrades into Warden's Mail. Cheaper that way in the early game). And I realize I can't use FoN, I can replace it with the regretably more expensive Runic Bulwark. i get that. And that helps my party more, I suppose. I can upgrade my boots with Alacrity to offset the lack of FoN's speed bonus (I find the Commander or whatever seems useless), and I've accepted they don't want us to have health regen anymore. lol But Runic Bulwark aside, can I get by without any other new items? Can I treat Mikael's Crucible as I treated AUG; something to get if I'm overly fed, but nothing more? Can I ignore Shard of True Ice unless, maybe, I got a Mana Manipulator? What are your thoguhts and opinions on building using almost all OLD items? Oh, also, I've pretty much decided I'm not using the goofy ward-creator-items. 2 at a time? Not even worth it.
