I have been seeing some AD carries get Avarice Blade.

Farming up for late-game, at the cost of early-game power. I personally wouldn't do it because Solo Queue.

Oh no! It's Idiot power!

Statikk Shiv is pretty good offensively even though it gives less stats than a PD. It's quite a bit cheaper after the Avarice Blade has been able to build up a lot of additional gold. The lightning being able to crit is pretty nice.

If you're getting Stattik Shiv instead of PD, then you might as well get the GP10 component of it first

Wow... This is pretty awesome.

So if you are behind, probz get avarice blade and farm (dont fight). Build statik shiv if u lost your lane. Hopefully avarice + your farming compensates for your crappy lane.

If you are ahead id get your IE/BT and then go for PD.

Random quick (probably inaccurate) math.

2g/10 +2g/kill 800g cost
soooo 4000s (66min) from just the gp10 to pay for its self
1 wave of minions (6) every 30sec, every third wave = 7 minions so every 1m 30s = 19 minions assuming 100% accuracy = +38g
So +38g (minions) +18g (2g/10) = +56g every 1m 30s
800g / 56g = 14.2 x 90s = 1285s = 21min

So after 21min of killing minions with 100% accuracy your Avarice Blade will have payed for its self and you'll start seeing a profit.

Doesn't seem worth it to me, unless you're not doing it for the gold and just want the Statikk Shiv, which I don't like on ADCs anyways.

*Disclaimer - I'm not good at math and don't claim to be, so if I made a mistake get over it.

You can sell the Avarice Blade for 400 gold to make up for that money sooner than just having it sit in your inventory.
