Fixed since bloodrazors dont stack anymore.
There are plenty of items that are very situational and rarely used. Thornmail is one of them, but you may be better off suggesting a NEW item designed for a caster's damage mitigation, since you seem to want to not use the armor stat. Thing is, this is a tank item. It has high armor to help you understand that. If you want to make a sub-2000g armor item into something that scales for AP instead and gives the same mitigation a tank has to invest over 4000 gold to get, I want to change Deathfire Grasp to scale with armor instead of AP and grant +25% spell damage mitigation...
Point is, armor stat is fine and balanced. Mages can stack it as well. Thornmail, as is, is fine. Sure its less used, doesnt mean it needs to be completely redesigned.
