Me and my friend got into a discussion last night over ad casters and carries. He told me there is no difference because they "could" share the same build and potently do the same thing. His basic argument was that all a ad caster is is a carry with better abilites to add to their auto attack damage. I feel that most ad casters, when built ad caster, ( garen, pantheon, talon, urgot, . . . . ) use their abilities to do most of their damage and the auto attack is just a back up. His he right?
it basically started when talking about item builds for talon, i have decided from playing him that bloodthursters are the way to go, with soul shroud to help with mana and cooldown. I build 3 bt, soul shroud, cd boots, and last whisper and call it a day.
he feels i should build more for my auto attack and get cleaver, inf edge, bt, frozen mallet, att spd boots, and phantom dancer. And if i do build for my auto attack, I wont be spamming my abilities as much thus i shouldn't have mana problems.
so what do you think community, is there a such thing as a ad caster? or is it just a carry with damage dealing abilities?
