Been noticing a lot of tanky Vayne lately.

Warmog/Atma's is not something too uncommon lately. Warmogs give better defence than Guardians Angel to ADC and with that amount of health Atmas is good pickup for crit aswell as AD/armor. Armor paired with HP makes AD mids less deadly too.

perhaps if topvayne you could build a bit tankier, but there shouldn't be an atmogs there

IE perhaps 2 defensive items, but that is a tenuous situation at best

People building atmogs again?

Been noticing a lot of tanky everything lately. I guess I should just build a Warmogs every game. Hell, might as well just stack 6 of them.

I don't know how many times I've said it but I'll say it again.

Cheaper HP items in general.
More powerful HP items in general.
Weaker defense/magic resist and more expensive in general.
Nerfing armor penetration.
Itemization for tanky bruisers that were already deadly enough without new items so long as they didn't get nerfed.

Culminates in a meta where just building tanky, no matter what, is optimal. It's also one of the reasons why a lot of AP mids are going with sorc boots + liandry/haunting. It's not because liandry is what they want or that they can even make good use of it before. It's that Liandry's does %HP damage, and HP is now gained more easily for almost anyone. And with the advent of high hp + high magic resist on bruisers now they need all the magic penetration they can get to do as much damage as they can.

But yeah, Atma's on Vayne even with Warmog's. Fail.
Replace with Last Whisper/Infinity Edge/Guardian Angel/Warmog x2
No matter which way you slice it you'll both be ending up in Hell!
