How do the pros do this? Is it all based on situation or something?
While you might have a 'core build' planned from your champion, you should ALWAYS build based on situation.
For example, my 'core build' for Morde is as follows,
Is this what I always build though? not at all. Lets say, for instance, they have an ad mid like kha'zix or lee sin. Instead of spirit visage, I might build a zhonya's for more armor. Or if they have massive cc, I might go merc treads instead of sorc boots. While having an idea of what you should build is good, you need to build according to what you need, not according to a set list of items that you pre-plan.
