Executioners calling... The forgotten item.

#1InstinctEggsPosted 2/4/2014 9:43:48 PM
I've been playing this game for over a year now and not once have I ever seen someone buy this item. I realize there could always be a better item, but I could see it being useful on Twitch and maybe Darius.

I don't play too much of ranked, do people buy it more on there or no?

It's officially the least used item in the game at 0.13% (Last time i checked). I've been playing for 2.5 years and i've only seen it built 3 times, and i was the one building it 2 of those times.

It's stats suck. They used to be better before they "updated" it (Huge chunk of lifesteal and crit for very cheap) but the addition of AD and removal of lifesteal jacked it's price up so much that it's not worth getting.
Especially prone to excessive exposition. Sorry.

Champion pretty much has to have ranged auto-attacks for the passive to be worth anything at all and be able to use AD and crit... so basically nobody but AD carries. Nobody wants to sacrifice their lategame deeps build for sustain damage, though it'd probably do alright if they run a stupid amount of sustain like the Mundo/Nid/Soraka team that was in LCS recently. Even in the best case scenario I feel like it is hit and miss.

Build path doesn't do it any favors either.

It only really needs an upgrade.

I bought it on Ashe once because mid fed Swain and they had a Sona. Team wasn't too happy about my choice.

No one ever brings up Banner and ohmwrecker.

It needs an upgrade along the lines of "targets that are damaged gain a debuff that will deal damage equal to 30% of any damage healed over 4 seconds" or something to give it a bigger upgrade - its not worth a slot as it is.

maybe yasuo can use it in ARAM? otherwise, i really can't think of a situation where it makes sense.

Those are actually sort've worth buying now though. I actually liked getting Banner in S3 when i was able to afford it.

Banner of Command is better now that it gives 80 AP and 20% cdr, which is pretty awesome. No mp/5 sets it apart from Morello's or Athene's, but that passive is MASSIVE gold value on champions with pets. Support Annie would probably be terrifying if that thing actually worked on Tibbers.

Executioner's needs an upgrade. It's a perfectly fine midgame purchase against Mundo or Swain or any other extremely healing reliant champion, but it falls off compared to Morello's because it just doesn't give enough stats later on.

Ohmwrecker is still pretty bad.
