'YOUR' Recommended Items
Ok, so I'm not sure if this has ever been planned on by the Devs or discussed by other players in the forums.

I think it's really awesome that there's Recommended Items in-game set forth by the Riot Team, but I got to thinking... half the time I don't use THEIR recommended items.

Wouldn't it be kinda cool to be able to have your own recommended items in-game that you've compiled, so you don't always have to search for them.

I'm basically suggesting that you have the ability to save YOUR Recommended Items.

I also thought it'd be cool if there was somewhere on your profile in the client where you could save your recommended items for different characters where you had the option to let other players see what you're recommending for characters. It would save me a lot of time having to tell a friend what Items I'm using.

I thought it'd be decently cool if there was a way you could choose a Champion, your Rune Page, your Recommended Items and get a total of your stats all while NOT being IN-GAME.

This is my first post, so please don't hate. BYEEE!

Instead of Recommended Items, why not build templates? I'm currently writing a program to create templates to share with friends/view in game that will include what items to build, what masteries to invest in, and what runes to use.

The benefits of templates over just a recommended items list are huge.


First, they can include more information (masteries/runes).

Second, they would allow you to have multiple builds for each champion - tank, ganker, pusher, and so forth. This is useful, especially since most champions can fit countless roles.

Third,they potentially allows you to suggest order when purchasing child -> parent items.
For example, recommended items lists tell you to get a particular type of boots - sorceror's boots, for example. Most players know, though, that you normally will buy boots of speed, build some other items, and then upgrade to your final boots. A template could potentially allow you to implement a "Suggested build order", along with the suggested items, which could remind you what order to buy child items in, which would also be helpful when sharing templates with friends.


The only thing really keeping me up right now is that my program pulls the item information directly from the website, and the items database is in a big need of an update.
(See my thread: http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...d.php?t=117288)

Of course, Riot could always make my life easy and implement a templates system on their own, saving me the trouble of injecting my program's overlay into the game.

EDIT: An example of a good template system (minus the third feature I mentioned) can be found at http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Annie, although since it requires a browser and is not a standalone program, it is not as useful in game)

Sounds fantastic. I won't disagree! I don't really care how it's implemented and yes the progressive build order would be awesome too!

how about a list of items people buy the most on a char? (with some simple limitations so you wouldn't see three types of boots)

+1 for this. The recommended items are great for players who are new to the game or trying out different champions, but after a few games with a champ, one can easily figure out what they want to build, and sometimes, it doesn't use hardly any of them. AP Heimer, for instance, uses pretty much none of the recommended stuff. Please, please Riot, give us the capability to remap/customize the recommended items list.

+1 I've been playing the game now for a little under a year and this is a feature I was expecting to see in the preseason 3 update.

How has usermade item presets not been implemented? I'm not one to enjoy wasting my time (2-3 minutes per 25+ game) standing around on the platform digging for items in the menu.

You can tell me "just keep playing and get faster" all day, but why not just make it better for everyone with draggable, saveable, shareable, personal build lists?

Edit: I would have started a new thread but since this existed I had to revive it.
