#1Dwhite_1Posted 2/10/2013 1:36:39 AM
played a game as garen adn got FB in 3min into the game

decided to try it out and bought avarice blade right off the bat on my first recall about 7min or so into the game

end game results. i had 280minions and it was 48 min into the game and the blade only racked up a total of about 900-1k gold before i turned it into an atmas

it costs 800

1-200 profit gold for 280minions and 48min into the game is definatley not wroth building it and holding onto it expecting it to get you some profit

The point isn't to get it to get a leg up on gold; you get it because you plan on upgrading it into something you actually want, and you can use the extra gold to help you either get that or other items that much faster. Especially with Rice Blade where the gold gain is abysmal.

Your profit was 1000 gold. If you had sold it back, then the profit would be the passive gold gained plus the sell cost, but that's not what you did. You built it into an Atma's. When you spent the 800 gold on the Avarice Blade, that's 800 gold you no longer need to complete Atma's.

(Anyways, it's probably gonna get buffed, one of the PBE changes was switching either the passive gain or on-kill gain to 3 gold instead of 2).

I think it should give AD or something else instead. Giving just crit chance just feels so underwhelming.

yes i built it into atmas but i really dont built atmas on garen most of the time, i just built it because i thought what the hell, might as well turn this into something useful. even if i had sold it back the profit wouldtve been a whole lot. i dunno it just felt extreamly underwhelming

crit is a terrible stat for earlygame, and gold/10 items are earlygame items.

which basically leaves Rice Blade in the "wtf is this even good for" category. Needs better stat.

Does the gold gained from the blade that shows up in the tooltip indicate both passive gold/per gained and the extra +2 you get from kills? Or does it only indicate the passive gain like the other gold/per items?

I main Gangplank, it is generally one of the first things I build. Right after ruby crystal and sheen(or just a sapphire crystal).
It varies though.
