AD (especially ranged) = Zero options?

Basically you can get Boots of speed and 3 red sodas. Then you get 1-2 Dorans blades, depending on who you are. Then you get B. F. Sword.

Then you get life steal or infinity edge depending on how much of a wuss you are....

Idk feels like AD has few options and no build decisions.

A few use TF

New items and s3 might change things a bit

But yeah I agree. On any adc you can go

Berkers Greaves

taking dolan's blades if you need them

APs usually always get Double Rings, Rabadons, Zhonyas, Void Staff and maybe Abysal

Support always get auras and wards

Tops and Jungle are more lenient on builds

Riot is aware of this

PD is getting nerfed
There is a 10% less crit damage mastery coming
And the new hurricane item does not work with crit

So in S3 there should be some more options for AD builds

Plenty of new options coming

AP need to go boots then robadons then 4 Arch Angel staves that have the 1000 mana cap xD
You know how it is...Cows go "moo", Dogs go "woof" and MMO Players go "the pvp is unbalanced"

AP's theres at least a little mix room- maybe you start with Will of the Ancients, or mana regen / mana cap.

Anivia, Ryze, Vlad, a couple others have options that lead them into AP but don't start the same....

But yeah, it's true they are still similar. Just no where the same as Beserkers, 1-2 Doran, Infinity Edge

WotA, Athene's, Archangels, Morello's, Gunblade (Akali), RoA, Rylais, Lich Bane... AP has definitely more options, and that's not counting defensive items.

As for boots you can even go Mercs, Ionian, or even mobility (Eve) depending of the champ/situation instead of the traditional Sorcs.

With the movement speed changes, you can maybe get away with Long Sword + potions, and you can now run Lifesteal / Movement Speed quints or Armor Penetration reds now since you won't need all the flat AD to last hit as easier.

Of course, you can always go Boots + 3 pots with full flat AD, but I think you can run different runes now.
