Blood Thirster or Infinity Edge?

#1mrmonstrPosted 3/18/2013 1:31:18 PM
ADC is probably my favourite role. I've started rushing Blood Thirster as my first main over Infinity Edge on every ADC. Good Idea in general?

Which situations would one be better than the other?

LoL (NA): mrmonstrNA (2)

ADC's that use a lot of skills should definitely go for BT first.

Most ADCs should get BT first.

EDIT: Or BotRK I guess now.

BT if you get ahead in laning. It just makes your laning so much more dominating.
Happyscrub's league of legends rank is higher than 95% gamefaqs posters. This is why gamefaqs jealous of him. That's why they troll him. So sad, So bad, so mad.

IE only really comes into play once you've already got a PD, so the Bloodthirster is a superior choice early. If you can manage it before laning ends, you can easily farm full stacks too.

If your ADC damage is on skills: Blood Thirster

If ADC damage is on auto-attack: Infinity Edge

If ADC: Blade of the Ruin King.

Champs like trist should go IE first, because they rely heavily on autoattacks for damage...

Go bork first instead if you don't benefit from going BT first imo

If you're ahead or even in lane get BT first

If you're behind get IE first.

For champions who use a lot of AD scaling skills, go BT first. For Vayne or kog'maw, go BoRK, first

For champs like tristana, ashe, go IE first.

If you get IE first, i'd go vamp scepter, then PD next.
If you get either of the other two first, get IE next.

You must not go more than 2,maybe 3 damage items w/o getting an IE.

by the time mid game ends and people are sitting with 3 final items, lacking an IE means you'll have trouble, unless you're draven/kog/vayne
