Greetings fellow Summoners. As of late, I have been thoroughly enjoyingrework, playing her as a steady pick quite successfully but, as an odd player, I like odd builds, like taking on her. But that is not what this blog is about.
Its about the armor circumvention choice I make on Ashe, opting for over . And for good reason because, while both items provide the same AD, the similarities end there. Last Whisper ends at adding armor penetration, but The Black Cleaver does a lot more then that:
- It adds 20% CDR, which is huge for Ashe, who has three out of four abilities with cooldowns longer than 15 seconds.
- It adds 400 health, which helps her survive any burst she was unable to kite.
- It adds the unique passive Rage, which helps her chase and kite even more.
But all this goodness doesn't come for free, there is a cost to everything:
- It costs more gold
- It reduces armor by 30%, which is not only less then LW, but also a lot less than when an ally would have TBC on top of that.
So my question here is: do you think the utility and survivability is worth the extra coin and the loss of armor penetration?
