Philo stone is still kind of meh, because you have to balance wasting the gold/5 passive by upgrading early with holding on to a weak item for longer.

Solution: Reverie still gives gold/5. Bam, philo stone not so sucky.

Philosopher's Stone had quite the reduction in price recently. Still, you have to be playing a character that makes good use of the hp and mana per 5.

Generally gold per 5 isn't something you want as you get into the late late game as well, so we take away the gold per 5 stat as you upgrade.

The same principle is employed with Heart of Gold, Avarice Blade, and Kage's Lucky Pick.

Fair enough, I was considering on the same line as when you have to decide whether to upgrade to a RoA early or not, in situations where a Catalyst is really, really useful.

Also, are you new? You seem like a new red. If so, congratulations. If not, go eat some waffles, because that's what I hear you guys do.

I've been at Riot for just over 5 weeks. It continues to be totally awesome!

I have also heard about this waffles thing--this morning I was overwhelmed by the smell of warm maple syrup in my cube but I did not identify the source...

Sup Volty. Good job interning at Riot. Is it true they pay you in riot points?
