Madred’s Bloodrazor has traditionally been a weak pick overall. On the surface, it appears to counter high health targets. However, its odd build path and the fact that it does magical damage make the Bloodrazor awkward in many situations. It doesn’t do as much damage as other alternatives to high hit point targets, nor is the build path something lenient enough to let you quickly build it to counter high health targets. As a jungle control item it is surpassed by Wriggle’s Lantern in many ways, especially for sustains, invades and jungle vision.

Alternative: Blade of the Ruined King

This item first debuted in Twisted Treeline, and was meant to be the ‘high health counter’ for ranged attackers. Against moderate DPS / high health targets, Blade of the Ruined King attacks these characters where it hurts the most – the fact that their DPS is consistent over time. By draining a percentage of their current health on every strike, Blade of the Ruined King seeks to burn down high health targets by both outlasting and kiting them.

Blade of the Ruined King also works well for on-hit ranged attackers, providing them a form of combat sustain that is independent of the amount of damage done by their main attack. On-hit Teemo or On-hit Kog’maws have traditionally fared poorly in being able to output sustained damage in a fight because life steal was so anti-synergistic with their builds. Blade of the Ruined King not only fits the % damage profile that Madred’s Bloodrazor once occupied but also supplies life steal for these character builds.

If your going to remove MBR, thats fine and all, but cant we get another "God Tier" on-hit item? Or just more on-hit items in general?

Removing HoG is a step, but it's only a quarter of the way there. Remove all gp10 items. There is no reason for that stat to exist and it is completely broken. The only thing making them build into more items will do is give more people money for nothing and restrict item builds even more.

@Xyph: Will there be options for support characters that want to build early durability since HoG is gone now and resist stacking is being nerfed? (Especially Sona, so she doesn't immediately explode as soon as someone looks at her funny.) Also, how will the removal affect the build paths for Locket and Randuin's be affected?

Have you done any testing for top-lane Heca with the removal of FoN? Where's the move speed being moved to? Is there an item that can still fit that slot similarly on Heca top?
