Tired of mr tanks? deal true damage today with this meta-breaking idea

Xerath has 40% mpen right?
Void staff and masteries give another 40% mpen right?
Together they give 64% mpen

Runes give 19.53 mpen

But this new build gives 75 bonus mpen

Yes. Boots stack. Also if you don't know what to enchant on your boots just get every enchant.

75 + 19.53 = 94.53

94.53 / (1-0.64) = 262 MR!

You will deal True damage to targets under 262 MR!

How do enemies get 262 MR?

52.5 base + 24mr runes + 25 mercs + 55 runic bulwark + 50 spirit visage + 45 banshees veil + 20 null-magic mantle = 271.5.

TL;DR With this build on Xerath, enemies need 5 MR items JUST to not take true damage from you. Anything less than 5 MR items and you're dealing true damage.

Is it true damage or does it break their armor going into higher numbers?

Can you put people in negative armor?

(In DotA you could, though the game mechanics and such are very different)

Just true damage. If you want to break their armor you need to get soraka to spam her Q.

Why not make it even deadlier by replacing one of the boots with Liandry's? That's still 15 MP but it gives some HP and more Damage.

There is no liandrys on twisted treeline.

BTW this idea is good to increase damage vs veigar without his ult doing more damage to u

Oh boy, finally a good strategy for when I'm playing Xerath against Galio!

Does this method only work on TT?
