Why is Ruined King so much more popular than Bloodrazor ever was?

Is Physical vs Magic really that large a difference?

it's cheaper, the components are easier to buy, it gives lifesteal as opposed to armor, it works well against hp stacking which is more popular now

health stacking.

It's cheaper, it synergizes with Armor Pen, it has Lifesteal and an amazing active effect.

Health stacking, cheaper, builds out of useful things, and its a functional alternative to what was the current standard adc first item (bt).

Also worth pointing out you might think that because it was magic damage that would be good for adc but people would actually build mr at the time when mbr was around. Now people build next to no armor and lots of armor pen is really common so physical damage is great.

all of the above, plus adc eventually get armor penetration...so that shred actually works

MBR did magic damge, but with no penetration and bulky people always having either a Maw or Force of Nature it never could do its job
