the whole point of stacking iTems is that you buy something at a price that is somewhat HIGHER than it is worth with 0 stacks but CHEAPER than it were with full stacks. That is the whole POINT of these items, being worth less than the cost on 0 stacks but being worth MORE than the cost on full stacks.
So you are saying that soulstealer with it's 20 AP and cost of 1235 is cost effecent with no stacks?
The issue is that warmogs provides to much mid game currently. It was not a problem in season 2 because it needed it's stacks to become a really effective item. Buying warmogs should be a late game investment with some risk, not something that shen gets and does 100 more damage from with his passive. What I am suggesting would make it cost efficient at 54 stacks and each thing killed worth an extra 14.3055 gold.
At 0 stacks it would be worth 2066.35 gold and at max stacks worth 3496.9 gold.
That 650 health will be an alright starting point for most champs but will make them have to farm for a bit to make up for the item they bought.
