i don't see ADs switching to the new items

i mean, i love the new items and when this patch gets out i will be vomiting awesome everywhere, but I don't see AD's switching from the BT + IE + PD + LW + Boots + Defense Item

Yes IE and PD are getting small nerfs, as is the lifesteal on bloodthirster, but the new items don't seem to be able to crack that gap. what we might see is cleaver potentially replacing LW, but outside of that I don't see much switching up (except scimitar obviously giving them a much better lategame).

Also, compared to the across the board reduction in AP, i don't feel like AD items were hit quite as hard.

The discussion has been BC on bruisers since it was first announced a couple of weeks ago, so that's not surprising in the least.

I'd be shocked if MF and Varus didn't start buying a Hurricane, though.

Sivir will get a nice indirect buff I think. There's a new item which increases movespeed as you attack an enemy, which will synergise well with her passive. Then there's Black Cleaver which will proc multiple times on every enemy because of her AoE moves. Miss Fortune's ult will shred nicely too. But as usual Caitlyn's getting no love. We need to see a buff for her damnit.

PD are getting small nerfs

I think the new passive on that is a HUGE buff.

Cait can charge her passive MUCH faster with Hurricane.

It's not meant to break current item selection. It's meant to be an alternative sometimes.

though I'll probably run Zephyr or Shiv over PD nowadays.
