I play support a lot since I always let everyone else pick roles first and it's often the last one. I have a question about the sightstone.
Now I am not pro and honestly I am probably considered "bad", so this is probably a stupid question/opinion. I am not a fan of the sightstone, it's limited to 3 non-pink wards, the extra HP is not too awesome in my opinion either.
With a sightstone I will often have to use another item slot for wards as 3 just isn't enough, and use a 3rd for extreme ward coverage (Very situational, but it has happened) Stone + 5 Wards + 5 Pinks
Is this item really worth the gold and item slot? I am aware the gold pays off after 8 or so, but gradually buying them as needed feels easier then dumping a huge amount of gold once while being limited to 3 (Yeah it carries 5, but I don't count it as you can only have 3 out) and having to return to base once it's used.
