Hey guys. I need some opinions/questions answered involving the items an ap mid generally gets. I'm only at around 1400 elo with around 60 ranked games played (last season) but I need some help. I've been maining mid for a while now, so I generally understand how to play the role. My main problems with mid are not understanding when I should get specific items, and I need some insight on that.
First of all, I would like to talk about WoTA. I know it used to be a great item, but it underwent some nerfs and I would like to know if it is still viable. I remember the days when I would rush revolver on Cass, but seems like nobody really does that anymore. Is that still viable?
Secondly, I would like to talk about DFG. It went under HEAVY nerfs, and to me, i don't see the entire point of getting the item anymore. A mid that I've always wanted to pick up was evelynn, but is she still viable mid without the dfg? I've been reading guides and they say to pick up gunblade instead. Is this viable? Or does she still need dfg?
And please don't flame, I know I'm at 1400 elo, and I probably should know this stuff, I'm just looking for some insight from better players.
