No, I'm not. Those 3 are the biggest focus, but there are also the annies, veigar, karthus, warwick, twitch, ashe, alistar, whatever that ALREADY have enough mana, but they need a banshee's veil because the opposing team has stacked casters, so they waste 400g on a blue crystal they really shouldn't have to buy.
If you need mana or mana regen, there are dozens of items dedicated to that aspect of your character, I find it very annoying that those stats are tacked onto so many items that aren't even based around casters.
Assume sheen is changed to not require a blue crystal. If you want sheen but you also desperately need some mana, whats so hard about buying a blue crystal and then buying a sheen?
How would the physical DPS carrys feel if every item with crit on it also had armor, and every item with +attack speed had hp, and every item with +damage also had health regen? Yeah, I'm sure a few weirdos would be happy about such changes "yay I can build my high hp physical dps shaco build now" but overall it would remove options and make the itemization more annoying. This is how it is for AP champions right now, it's almost impossible to get AP without getting mana or mana regen.
