How viable is fort pot start still?

I did it on renekton versus Udyr and it let me snowball lane pretty hard. Since I have sustain in Q is it still viable in some champs?

It's more of a gamble now since you don't have as many hp pots, if you get camped or something then you'll really be in pain.
You are now blinking and breathing manually.

Comparing it to cloth+5 you'd probably come out ontop in an early all in with 120+hp and 15AD (versus their 15 armour). However this assumes you have AD scaling.

If you can all in the elixir of fortitude still wins out. However if it doesn't work out, or you get into a sustain battle you're worse off. Also the biggest change is that no one without AD scaling is going to grab it early, so we're not having AP mids running it too.

on one side, it is now pretty much you need to all in

on the good side, people can't use the super sustain starts as counterplay, due to the limit of pots

Still worth doing on some champs like Riven who can easily manage an early kill or at least gain a significant advantage with it.
