What mana item to buy for ap mids?

#1Zans_Posted 6/23/2013 3:25:11 PM
So just as a general overview or guide how do you usually decide what mana item to buy for your ap mids? Been having trouble picking like for Orianna do I get tear or chalice? Also for Kass ROA or tear? Stuff like that, thanks guys.

RoA is only if you want your mage to be tanky
I've seen Tear and Chalice used interchangibly although I prefer Chalice and it gives you enough mana to sustain if you get denied blue
You can also go double dorans if your champion doesn't have that much high mana costs (Diana or TF for example)

It simply depends on the champion.


Chalice into Athene's 90% of the time on Orianna.

Catalyst -> tear -> RotA on Kasadin

Doran stacking on Morgana

What about Morellonomicon? Or is that just outclassed in every way?

Tear if you're hardcore spam. Chalice if you're soft spam. RoA for Kass, Anivia and Annie (Anivia should also definitely build either a tear or a chalice, depends on preference really).

Its a decent filler item that gives some really good stats, but it would be the first item i would sell in a 70 minute game when i was already full build. Keep/rush if they have someone like mundo or singed. The passive is amazing in that regard.

Such a good item.
You get it when the other team is has a Sona/Soraka/Nid/Aatrox/basically any heals
20% CDR + Mana Regen + AP for that price.
