now I’m not trying to irritate people but I did some numbers and tested in bots…..if you can manage a vanguard or SnY it actually helps you tank up enough to the point it’s a good damage item.
you pick up a ring of health and drums early for health and sustain. you do have to be more passive in lane but once you hit level 6 you can roam and get kills, allowing you to farm your ring, just stay at brown boots, maybe pick up ring of aquilla for that extra touch of mana, stats, and armor.
once you get your radiance then you can burn through the jungle to farm your other items like bkb and finish the vanguard.
heck even just sit on casual relic if you have to to get other items.
the damage actually works rather nicely since a basic relic is cheaper than a desolator, and once it goes radiance you can farm faster and with your mobility inside teamfights you do quiet a bit. so long as your team can keep a decent amount of space it’s actually kind of good.
granted this is a highly situational build but if you can I think it’s actually pretty good.
this is what 2k MMR players actually believe.
