I have tried a few times. Although breaking the Meta is near impossible in team select. First game I was given top but bot lane didn't select an ad carry. We had ad fiddle and garen. Needless to say however I was the only positive player and had fb against jarvan. Next game a Olaf went top with me and int fed 11 deaths. But it seems highly viable. They focus you out of instinct and they don't kill you quickly and waste abilities. And chasing is no longer an issue for a team with your abilities on tank Ashe. Give it a try guys! post feedback.

I've been considering a similar thing with Graves.
His passive makes him extra tanky, does plenty of low CD damage in a fight, has an escape, and counters most tops pretty well. No utility in a team fight though, just a bruiser target no one can resist in the middle of a fight.
Who ya gonna focus...ranged AD kiting you or that Graves up in your face?

Played one game. No jungle. Might have been ok. Should have won the game.

Shut down Darius, but felt useless. Would have been stronger with a jungle and a more aggressive adc than Caitlyn

I tried this in season 2. It just isn't that good. There aren't very good tanky dps items for her. The best one is redundant (frozen mallet), and atmogs is pretty crappy since atma's was nerfed oh so long ago.

You don't die, but you don't do enough damage to be worth anything to your team. You're like a second support.

With no escape, she is just gonna get wrecked by top laners with a gap closer such as Jax, Wukong, Renekton etc.

If you gonna do that, do support ashe instead of wasting a top laner's farm. You can go tanky on a support budget, but I personally like going Shiv/Runaan's/Cleaver for lategame (Rush zeal and avarice first, then finish runaan's and cleaver before finishing shiv).

I imagine this could work for top lane too, and you can fill the remaining 2 slots (excluding boots) for tank items like randuins and/or banshee's veil.
