stupid question, what does item "built from" mean?

like the list there, the abysmall scepter. What is the 980 price and the 2650 price. Have I been doing it wrong in just not buying anything and saving up to 2650 to buy it?

It means what it says. Like the items that makes that last tier item.

Example: To make an abyssal scepter, you need a Negatron and a Blasting Wang.

All the items that can be bought to make the new item.

He asked if it was possible for a male human to have a sex with a female horse. He even drew a diagram; I think a stepladder was involved.

but it seems like I can just get the scepter for 2650? is there a discount if you have the other two items?

Abyssal Scepter "builds out of" a Blasting Wand and a Negatron Cloak. The cost of combining the Wand and Mantle into the Scepter is 980; the total cost of the Wand, Cloak and the combine cost is 2650.

You can buy the Wand and Cloak separately and combine them at your convenience.

Who asked about the Abyssal Scepter? We're talking about the NEW item, the Abysmal Scepter. It's basically the worst item in the game.

No, it will ended costing the same no matter what. If an item is 2000 gold and it builds out of a 800 gold item and a 400 gold item Having them will decrease the price by 800/400. Then to "build" the better item you have to spend another 800. The advantage to buying the items is simply to have a portion of the benefits earlier without wasting gold by having to resell it.

Yes, if you have 3k gold when you bank you can buy a straight up scepter whole. But most of the time you won't go back to base with that kind of cash on you so you just buy a piece of the item you're building towards.

As for the second question.. Math is REALLY not that hard.

so I am looking at the guide, this one

http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/night-approaches-season-3-diana-guide-293895

the example 1 item build order. Is it implying that I should buy the prereqs and combine them when I get the chance, or wait and actually buy the scepter?

Prereqs. There's no downside to buying the pieces first.
