AP Tenacity Item Needed
With Season 3 there are only three Tenacity items available in the game and NONE of them cater to AP Casters. I main Swain and my favorite go to tenacity item was Moonflair Blade. It was a much better choice then getting Mercury Threads (Since I needed the Sorcerer's Boots for the extra Magic Pen) and it kept my damage up since the Moonflair Blade added an additional 40 AP (If I remember correctly).

Hopefully you can considered bringing back Moonflair Blade or at least add an item that an AP Caster can buy instead of always having to rely on Mercury Threads.

Merc treads are perfectly good.

uh merc treads ARE viable for AP, they grant more MR than Sorc shoes ignore, so what you lose out on 15 Magic pen, QQ just build a Void Staff/skull of ruin anyway, its all the magic pen you need (at least when i play akali, annie, chogath, mordekaiser, xerath, any AP caster really)

note that you dont even know the full name of the item you are requesting to be back. the name in Moonflair Spellblade. and btw you dont remember the name cause no one used it. that's why they removed it from the game...

I've generally felt that Moonflair's biggest downfall was not showing up in the Blasting Wand recipes - every time you wanted to purchase it you had to search through the AP section of items (which is pretty extensive). With how rare magic penetration was for AP, especially after Abyssal Scepter was hit for shorter range, Sorcerer's Shoes were arguably the hardest boots to pass up. Moonflair was probably the tenacity item I've picked up the most.

It would be nice if Moonflair offered something outside of just Tenacity though - that unique passive isn't terribly unique, and Mercury Treads also carry the unique tier 2 movement speed. I can't say I'm surprised it was removed, though it would be nice to have an AP Zephyr or Spirit of the Ancient Golem equivalent.
