I disagree with this.
AS slows counter it, CC counters it, Ignite counters it, and Grevious wounds counter it.
However, I think that the two of the above that aren't innately determined by your champion have itemization options that are far too polarized (they require too much dedication in a single direction pigeon-holing players).
I think that my version of bloodmail, by giving health, opens up a more unilateral approach to countering this.
And I sincerely disagree that this is OP given the stat of BotRK if anything it would work as a counteractive force better balancing BotRK and due to it's archetype nondiscrimination it would be nonlinear in its problem solving...
my 2 cents...
