Item: Morello's Bracelet

Stats:

AP 40
MR 40
HP 200

Builds from: Negatron Cloak, Ruby Crystal, Blasting Wand

Total cost of ingredients - 2055
Total cost of final item - 3000

Unique Aura: Grants nearby allies armor and magic resist equal to 5% of their current AD

Unique Active: Grants a 10 second shield to one nearby ally absorbing damage equal to their current AD (60 second cooldown)

This is an situational item for AP tanks, junglers, or supports. The purpose of this item is to provide better protection for the ADC. In solo que you will often find communication difficult and therefore protecting a certain member of your team or focusing a certain member of the enemy team can become quite a challenge. Therefore you must take matters into your own hands. This item is build when your ADC is getting focused in teamfights, or bullied out of lane (although due to the price you would have to be quite fed to build this during the laning phase, and it is not intended to be rushed). It is a late game item that would be bought by someone like Taric, Cho'Gath, or Zac.

This is just a concept so feel free to improve on the idea and share your opinion!

As for the name, Morello is a great guy and definitely deserves an item named after him.

Let's play a little game of Math.

In average, most AD champions, like bruisers and ADC reach around 300 AD. From this math, their bonus armor and magic resist would be 15. Compared to Runic Bulwark, this is 5 more armor and 10 less magic resist. The armor difference is so low it would barely be noticed and the lesser magic resist would get you killed more often. You need to slightly scale up your aura effect.

There are currently only two items that generate a shield as their active, lets review them for a moment.

For up is Locket of the Iron Solari. This is an obvious Support role item because of its CDR, armor, HPR and HP. As an active, this item generates a shield of 50+(10 x your level). This will give you at best a shield of 230 damage.

The second item is Seraphs Embrace (Archangel staff with maxed mana). This will grant you a shield equal to 25% your current mana. This item was designed for mages with high MP output (specifically burst mages) and was designed to help them survive a bit more by sacrificing their mana pool. This item is not designed for supports as the shield is only applied to yourself.

So, going back to your Morello's Bracelet, as you call it, this item would generated a shield to absorb as much damage as your ADC have AD. This could really spell trouble for an ADC that's falling behind the game and isn't well built but would also grant massive advantage to an ADC who is already well fed, probably leading to further feeding. You should scale the shield off something else because there's a reason items don't scale off stats (with the exception of Malady and Seraph's Embrace).

Totally open to ideas, what do you suggest scaling it off?
