i like this item for bottom lane, its a GREAT item for pushing

it also lets you harrass the enemy from a safe range if there are enemy creeps you can hit and bounce to.

I think the item bares some re-evaluation, definitely. It's a fun item when at the right power, I just think the numbers are a little off now. Thanks for bringing it up!

Aww, your item thread got Brackhar's attention!

Mind looking at mine too?

While you're at it, buff SOTD too, and maybe make both deal the bonus damage in smaller amounts on every hit, cause it's not as fun to have a proc "once in a while".

Seconding Hugs from Momma's evaluation.

And on a side note they are a stompin' Ryze to try to play against

I have tried to build this a few times since I love the baby Storm Shield-esque lightning bolts... But considering it's cost and place in builds, Wit's End is better in almost every situation.

It's weaker in team fights but it definitely has more potential than tiamat as a pushing item. It hits 4 units, intentionally supposed to be the 3 units of a wave and the 4th laner. Every sort of hero has the potential to push hard with some sort of item except for ranged attackers. This item fixes that and allows for anyone to play bot potentially.
I think the stats are fine as they are. Perhaps what the item needs is some sort of active ability. I think it would certainly make up for the cost.

Any good pusher with good aoe abilities are going to wipe a wave in seconds anyway (Kayle, Sivir) with or without this item.

People who have no aoe attacks are not suddenly going to become good pushers by buying this item.

I actually was curious about this, so I tried it on the worst pusher I play: Poppy.

Did it work? Kinda, yeah. I feel the attackspeed helped a bit more than the proc, since the minions run like 35 magic resist (taste my 75 damage lightning of doom!), however it did help noticeably against big groups, and a lucky proc did win me a 1v1.

Would I build it again? Well... maybe if I got stuck as poppy in bot?

A better pick shouldn't need it but it's cool that the option is there to save a bad bottom pick. At least against a mediocre cho xP
