I really think that we need more cooldown reduction for champions that focus on dealing mostly physical damage while not using ability power and mana.


Champions like: Renekton, Riven, Garen, Rengar, Shyvanna, Tryndamere, Mundo... They all benefit from cooldown reduction greatly since they dont have mana or any other limitation except cooldowns. So when they want to invest in cooldown reduction they get these items:

Athene's Unholy Grail item Athene's Unholy Grail: +15% cooldown reduction

Deathfire Grasp item Deathfire Grasp: +15% cooldown reduction

Fiendish Codex item Fiendish Codex: 10% cooldown reduction,

Frozen Heart item Frozen Heart: +20% cooldown reduction

Glacial Shroud item Glacial Shroud: +15% cooldown reduction

Hextech Sweeper item Hextech Sweeper: +10% cooldown reduction

Ionian Boots of Lucidity item Ionian Boots of Lucidity: +15% cooldown reduction

Kindlegem item Kindlegem: +10% cooldown reduction

Mejai's Soulstealer item Mejai's Soulstealer: +15% cooldown reduction (at 20 stacks.)

Morello's Evil Tome item Morello's Evil Tome: +20% cooldown reduction

Nashor's Tooth item Nashor's Tooth: +25% cooldown reduction

Randuin's Omen item Randuin's Omen: +5% cooldown reduction

Shurelya's Reverie item Shurelya's Reverie: +15% cooldown reduction

Soul Shroud item Soul Shroud: Unique passive aura: +10% cooldown reduction to nearby allied champions

Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage: +10% cooldown reduction

Stinger item Stinger: +10% cooldown reduction

The Brutalizer item The Brutalizer: +10% cooldown reduction

Youmuu's Ghostblade item Youmuu's Ghostblade: +15% cooldown reduction

Zeke's Herald item Zeke's Herald: Unique passive: 15% cooldown reduction


When we remove those items that are oriented towards champions that deal magic damage (e.g. Lux, Malzahar, Le Blanc...) and that would be very useless on AD champions we get:

Frozen Heart item Frozen Heart: +20% cooldown reduction

Glacial Shroud item Glacial Shroud: +15% cooldown reduction

Ionian Boots of Lucidity item Ionian Boots of Lucidity: +15% cooldown reduction

Kindlegem item Kindlegem: +10% cooldown reduction

Nashor's Tooth item Nashor's Tooth: +25% cooldown reduction

Randuin's Omen item Randuin's Omen: +5% cooldown reduction

Shurelya's Reverie item Shurelya's Reverie: +15% cooldown reduction

Soul Shroud item Soul Shroud: Unique passive aura: +10% cooldown reduction to nearby allied champions

Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage: +10% cooldown reduction

Stinger item Stinger: +10% cooldown reduction

The Brutalizer item The Brutalizer: +10% cooldown reduction

Youmuu's Ghostblade item Youmuu's Ghostblade: +15% cooldown reduction

Zeke's Herald item Zeke's Herald: Unique passive: 15% cooldown reduction


Now let's remove those items that build into something (e.g. Brutalizer > Youmuu's Ghostblade) we get:

Frozen Heart item Frozen Heart: +20% cooldown reduction

Ionian Boots of Lucidity item Ionian Boots of Lucidity: +15% cooldown reduction

Nashor's Tooth item Nashor's Tooth: +25% cooldown reduction

Randuin's Omen item Randuin's Omen: +5% cooldown reduction

Shurelya's Reverie item Shurelya's Reverie: +15% cooldown reduction

Soul Shroud item Soul Shroud: Unique passive aura: +10% cooldown reduction to nearby allied champions

Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage: +10% cooldown reduction

Youmuu's Ghostblade item Youmuu's Ghostblade: +15% cooldown reduction

Zeke's Herald item Zeke's Herald: Unique passive: 15% cooldown reduction


As you can see there is only 9 items that could benefit AD champions in certain way. Some of these are useles on some (e.g. Garen and Nashor's Tooth) so this list is even shorter for some champions. As you can also see there are only 3 times that have offensive stats: Nashor, Youmuu and Zeke. Nashor is not that awesome for champions like Garen, Riven or Tryndamere since other stats like mana regen, mana and ability power simply go to waste. That leaves only 2 offensive items that give cooldown reduction.


What I think is that we need 2 or 3 new items that have cooldown reduction, have offensive stats and benefit AD manaless champions. Defensive cooldown reduction items are good, I think that we even need one more magic resist/cooldown reduction item since there is only spirit visage.


What do you think, what item ideas do you have?
