PResence of more armor is y design. Does ANYONE read Xypherous? If you want to counter burst mages you do the exact same thing you do to shut down enemy AD casters early game.
You build primary HP pith splashes of MR/Armor.
That is why Bulwark exists. Spirit Visage. Banshee's Veil. If you need more than a combination of Bulwark+(any magic resist item here) then you should just be building more HP. IT will be JUST AS EFFECTIVE if not MORESO than building MR.
And it ALWAYS HAS BEEN. There's no need for FoN. They upgraded SV and Aegis to make up for the loss. When before you'd have Aegis+FoN you can get Bulwark+SV for the SAME COST and MORE MR AND HP.
Edit: If you're the AD and the enemy AP got fed you build warmog's. If you're AD and the enemy AD got fed you build warmogs. IF you're the AD you build warmogs. You don;t build resists they're completely worthless on an ADC.
