Why are AD carries building Static Shiv instead of Phantom Dancer?

It's a phase. They'll grow out of it soon.

Quick, cheap, and pays for itself.

She's a few cards short of a full deck: a joker in the game, ooh.
She's got a bullet with your name on it - no doubt she's a mental case.

It's better than PD. Damage-wise and utility-wise.

Depends what ADC I play really. On Tristana I take Shiv > Dancer,
but on Fortune I tend to take Dancer > Shiv. ..Dunno why really.

Meh...Overally a great item IMO.
Not that much difference with Dancer, but the cost and pure damagio it gives helping you farm way easily.

I think the main reason they're building it is because it builds out of Avarice blade which gives a fairly good ammount of gold income while building into something useful.
