I'm noticing a lot of pros building drums on pretty much everything

Like, Drums before Diffusal on PL. Does anyone think it's a little too good? Great stats, great aura, great active, low cost...

I also build drums pretty much on every char. But mainly because I usually go double bracer to start and I ditch 1 during mid-late game so why not have drums

move speed is always nice

It's extremely cost-effective, but since you generally only want one per team it doesn't feel detrimental. If being good on every hero was nerf-worthy boots of speed would be long gone.
And with that...pow! I'm gone!

It did get a damage nerf last patch or so, but it is still a great item.

It's like an Ultimate Orb minus a GG branch with extra AS & MS with a active for an extra AS & MS

I always had a hard-on for Drums. One of the most cost efficient items in the game that's great on many heroes.

It gives heros the ability to have some early presence. Solves health and mana problems. Gives a ton of MS. How much those 4 charges can give you in terms of a early lead is prety scary.

Its also a good item to have on multiple heros for chain drums. Also extra charges.

I really wish they would make worthwhile null and wraith versions. Aquilla and Dagon just dont stack up to drums.

I ususally see it when people build phase or tranquils. It kind of fills up the holes that appear from not getting treads (with its attack speed and stats).

As mentioned, its an amazing item. Drums is fantastic.
