What do you guys do instead, Im just curious...
Using 22 Armor pen total in runes and 6 more in masteries. I start with cloth armor with 5 health pots or cloth armor, ward, 2 health pots, depends.
i convert the cloth into razors, grab boots, greaves right then adn there if i have the cash. then a recurve bow and stack the 3 opening slots with doran's sword and be on my way.
recurve bow gets converted into stark's. at this point i have 48 armor pen, 29% lifesteal, 300 extra health. and 24 more AD added. ill conver the razors into Wriggle's Lantern. at that point i have 43% lifesteal. sometimes ill sell the razors for 700 in certain situations to rush an item.
now i go out and about, jungling, farming, putting in work for the team, etc....i dont worry about going back anymore. i usually go back when i have enough money to replace one doran's sword for whatever the game warrants. items i usually buy are IE, bloodthirster, BV, sunfire, atma's.
i go atma's if i have a teammate who's doing good and carrying us, no need to get uber powerful, ill let my teammate do that and clean up after him. by the time i go for atma's ill have at least 2k health. for 2400 dollars you get 40 AD(2k hp), crit chance, and armor. you already have 48 armor pen and enough lifesteal to reap the benefits. if this happens, i then grab BV and a sunfire no matter what.
and always buying red and green elixirs.
depends on the game as far as what ill do to replace the doran's swords. im doing pretty well, ive exceeded 10 game win streak by now, my match history wont go down far enough but i know i havent lost in a bit.
its all in fun. hopefully you guys arent gonna go "madred's bloodrazors no matter what", because im going to say no **** but in rank games i always rush that item then build a survivability item depending on enemy team make up which is most likely going to be a BV.
