Not arguing this - but it also does happen to have like 1200 gold of AS built in.
edit: Lets compare BoRK + pickaxe to Ie (moderately similar gold costs - ie costs more).
If you average out crit with ie passive into the damage you gain off of IE hits - that is 96 damage an AAs
Adding BoRK + pickaxe have a combined AD of 55.
So 96-55 = 41 damage difference without BoRK's passive.
The big question is how does 5% of current hp compare to 41 damage.
I'm going to suggest(my logic may be flawed) that you estimate the dps of current damage as %max hp on half of the targets hp.
If the champions have 1000hp
that would make it 25 per hit on BoRK passive.
Factoring that in makes it a per hit advantage of 16 to Ie.... and then you factor in 40% AS.
note: without an established level of AD - i cannot apply that to the crit/crit bonus damage to your other ad. I would be happy to rework this with if any level is agreed upon.
