Quick question, are there going to be more item choices for Armor+Ability Power?

I started a thread not too long ago, hasn't gotten much attention.

EDIT: What items will you be adding to help Melee AD Carries? What about AD Casters and AD Assassins? I main champions like Riven, Fiora, Master Yi, Tryndamere, Xin Zhao, Jax, and Lee Sin.
LOL i find you to be a HORRIBLE league player if main those champions. you lack the skill of playing a champion that requires skill. if you dont understand what i mean when i say that, its because you are a noob and rely on your champion to carry you instead of your build..

I would personally like to request solid alternatives to the current competitive starting items.
Getting boots and 3 health potions is a real buzz kill when I do it almost every game. The Doran's items are okay but I feel like there is something that could be done differently. If items like Long Sword and Amplifying Tome were lowered in cost or something, that would be great. Or if the Doran's items were lowered in cost from 475 to 400 then the player could afford a ward or 2 health pots. Then you can lower some of the Doran's items stats - which I think would make them better "filler" items.

If you build Warden’s Mail in the mid game, you shouldn’t feel compelled to buy Randuin’s Omen every game. We wanted to make sure that at each stage of item progression gave you upgrade choices later on.
Does this mean I can build my Brutalizer's into something worthwhile? Cause that item is viable on some champions (Rengar, Talon), but Ghostblade doesn't ever get built. :/

Totally agree. I think this'll really let everyone build their champs how THEY want to not how they're expected to.
