Why would you build IBG over TF

#1PrintScreenKeyPosted 3/21/2013 3:41:17 AM
TF is far more gold efficient and they do similar things.

Comparing passives:
The slow may not be as reliable on the Trinity Force but it does give more movement speed and stronger single target spellblade to make up for that.

Comparing stats:
A large portion of the iceborn gauntlet's stats is mana, which doesn't directly translate into fighting power unless you're ryze or have a muramana.

IBG gives 70 armor, but that's only worth 1400 gold, whereas the TF gives AD, AS, HP and crit that is worth as much as an IBG itself.

The only reason I see that you'd build an IBG is if you REALLY want slow procs but you're sacrificing the TONS OF DAMAGE trinity force for those slows...

Like IBG over TF on Nasus. Let's him push without using E and he gets free damage and helps him not get kited. On Irelia and Jax and stuff I prefer TF (mainly for health and AS)

It's the better choice on tankier champs like Hecarim, Nasus and Taric.

Cause IBG passive gets stronger if you have more ad, hench the reason why i build it on Vi despite my team raging not to build it.

Lets move mountains or mount movements.

there are teams that rage about building it on Vi?

Ignorant heathens.

In any event the area slow is not to be underestimated.

It's a much better peeling/lockdown item for bruisers and it offers CDR as well.
