Whaddya guys think of Soul Ring on Sven?

I always find myself so lacking on mana it's not even funny. So is Soul Ring a nice solution?

Currently though i build Urn and Treads as soon as possible, and rush either BM or BKB depending on lineup. This makes mana issues so damn obvious... Not even Urn's mana regen and int treads are enough.

What do you think?

EDIT: also, i'm in love with BKB. The item singlehandedly allowed me, Jugg and SK to face down the enemy team 3v5.

With Soul Ring, you'll just be returning to base for HP instead of mana. Get Sage Mask. It will fill your mana bar enough during the time it takes you to switch lanes, which works for ganking.

If you sit in a lane during all of early game, then just conserve mana and initiate sparingly.

Sven's squishy enough as it is. I prefer skipping MoM entirely(cuz the game's prolly over by then) or only getting it after my damage items(BKB/BM then Daed). You saw how i played earlier. >_>

Besides that doesn't solve my mana problems either.

Hmm. Would drums before BM/BKB be a good pick up?

I go magic stick and drums. Solves the mana problems for the most part. Then MoM and BkB.

Sven's base mana regen sucks - a Sage Mask is percentage based, and therefore, also sucks until extreme late game.

Get a basilius early and don't throw out Storm Hammer willy-nilly, and you'll be fine.

I like Soul Ring, myself, but only with a babysitter with a Headdress.
