Lol this is really really really wrong. Attack speed stacks poorly with attack speed, sure, but you're not buying these items for their attack speed, you're buying them for their on hit effects, which DO scale well with attack speed. WW's ultimate has an ad ratio, sure, but it's NOT 1:1 meaning that his ultimate benefits more from onhit effects, since each "hit" applies onhit effects while not actually doing the full damage a real "hit" would do. Attack speed further synergizes with warwick's passive.
The reason people do not build madreds razor on warwick is because as a jungler, you lack gold and as a tanky initiator you cannot afford to go a high damage low survivability item. And lanewick is only good because of his q spam, which means you prioritize different items (mpen, cdr, and resists etc not his AS/onhit build). Madreds is fine if you are somehow capable of getting lots of gold by early game, which is never ever going to happen considering his poor pre-6 ganking potential, but there it is.
You completely do not understand how to build warwick. You posted your misconceptions in a previous thread, except you stated that you would refuse to look back on any responses (even though it was your own thread!) which really pisses me off. The point of a forum is communication, don't post a thread and then make another post in that thread in which you explicitly ignored everything else everyone said.
The OP is wrong but so are you.
Madreds has never been a very good item in the first place. I haven't seen a single high level player recommend or use the item on any champion, EVER, and I have also seen maybe two or three built within my seven hundred ranked games.
Madreds is viable on a very fed carry build irelia. Similar to the idea of wickd getting both ionic spark and wits end, your attack speed is incredible and you also output a mixture of physical/magic/true damage which makes it very difficult for them to counter your damage. I've seen it on a very high elo irelia in ranked 5's (she stomepd us...) only works if you can destroy your lane early and you need that damage to beat the other lanes who aren't losing that badly or going even. It provides a nonsignificant amount of armor too, after all, though of course in most cases simply going ionic spark is more viable. It's still a very very very very situational buy and you'll never be "wrong" not getting it, to be honest.
