- is an inexpensive item with an easy build path that offers a handful of useful stats early on. Due to its substantial ability power and cooldown reduction, it is often "rushed" by casters with short cooldowns, like Karma, Lux, and Xerath. It is also a cheap counter to champions who rely on health regeneration, such as Aatrox, Dr. Mundo, Sion, Swain, and Vladimir.
- Some players may desire more mana regeneration than provides, typically when playing as mana-dependent champions like Anivia, Swain, and (in some cases) Viktor. These players usually purchase instead, trading some ability power for greater mana sustain and some magic resist.
