Why does it seem like adcs are the class most-prone to using gold poorly?

Amassing Attack Speed and Crit before building Damage to actually do anything with it, rushing lifesteal other than bork, building armor pen way too late.

It's some ironic twist on the fact that they're the most build-reliant class in the game.

I rarely see any ADC build crit/AS before getting a BF sword, they sit on that then go for a crit item unless they back with enough to complete their dmg item. Though I guess on Trist the AS/Crit is more useful for taking towers easily? I don't know.

the one thing that irks me is when they'll rush a shiv or hurricane with literally only a D-Blade, seems really odd.

I'm not sure if this is true.

Tanks and bruisers (incl junglers) have to decide vs. offense or defense -> it can depend heavily on the situation, so does require some thinking. I think building offense when you should have gone tank earlier vs. building tank too early are commonly seen errors. ADCs are only building offense, so their decision should be easier.

That said, yes, I agree it's strange to see the first pick-up dagger build, but probably because we're low elo.

I have a similar experience with mid Gragas (before the rework) rushing Grail (again before the rework) against a Lee Sin mid.
I guess he could use it to clear waves with endless mana, but Lee was happily killing him over and over with his Hydra.

Actually, I tend to agree. As I'm moving up elos on this account, I am seeing a lot of adcs rushing attack speed items first. Get some freaking damage first so you can farm better and poke.

Because they're the most likely to rush PD as a first item.
