In the current meta of league of health why don't ADCs go FM instead of Warmogs?

It grants plenty of health and trades a bit of it for a small amount of damage and applied Ashe-Q slows.

1000 health for 2830g
vs
700 health for 3300g

2.8g per health vs 4.7g per health. It's 67% more expensive per health.
Of course the other stats matter, so you do see it happen, but from a purely defensive point of view, warmogs is far more cost efficient.

Gap closers.

If you're against a team with no gap closers, then by all means get mallet. It's actually pretty annoying.

ADCs usually have lifesteal to sustain themselves and a huge lack of CC, which the perma slow helps. Frozen Mallet is more expensive, but it gives more to an ADC for what they want.

Life steal is also why more health capacity is important. If an enemy AP assassin fails to burst you from full, you have time to just AA your life back.

Suddenly Warmogs is great, though it's very slightly cheaper than S2 Warmogs but gives a lot less.

An unfarmed S2 Warmogs gave 920HP. Farmed took it to 1270.
