Doran's Blade is a basic item in League of Legends.[1] It is a useful starting item for any champion going for a DPS build.

Gold Efficiency

  • Doran's Blade is gold efficient even without its passive.

Strategy

Stacking Doran's Blades is a viable tactic for champions who need survivability. This is because Doran's items have a very low cost for the stats they give, balanced by the fact that they cannot be upgraded. Getting 2 Doran's Blades can also be useful to get an early lane advantage over your opponent, in particular if going against the enemy carry. In this situation however, you should press that advantage, as he will complete his core build sooner.

The on-hit heal from multiple Doran's Blades WILL stack.

The stat per gold of Doran's Blade (when excluding health and mana regeneration) is the worst among the three Doran's items.  Doran's Blade falls off as the game progresses, due to the heal amount being fixed, so it does not scale with increasing damage output.

Background

They say Effrem E. Doran was born with a hammer in his hands and a forge in his heart. Every object he touched, he found ways to improve, and he knew that he was destined to be a brilliant artificer. At the age of 15, he was invited to the League with an offer to assume the role of Master Artificer, a dream come true and an unprecedented honor for one so young. However, fate had other plans. En route, his carriage broke an axle. When he leaned down to inspect it, he was kicked in the head by his donkey, a stern blow. He stumbled back onto the wagon, but when he arrived at the Institute of War he was a different boy. The kick had rendered his mind soft, but it hadn’t robbed him of his passion. He still wanted nothing other than to craft, but where once he may have created singular masterpieces, he now crafted…somewhat simpler items, and many of them. He is a kind, goofy, good-hearted soul, and he takes pride in the work he does. His items are daily selected by champions on the Fields of Justice, and he has a permanent home at the Institute of War.

Doran's Blade, Doran's Shield and Doran's Ring are some of the more famous crafts.
