Will there be items to replace force of nature in its health regen /MS department?

I loved FON for its trifectaness of feeling like a perma baron regen buff + making you speedy and immune to burst D:

Be honest, you are really removing FoN because movespeed is too powerful on melee champs whos vulnerability is supposed to be kiting.

It fills a niche, but isn't so good to be a must buy everygame. I offers a set of stats which are all 3 great on tanks, making it very obvious who should buy it and when. In fact Its such a well designed item, that it should be the role model for all items moving forward.

Now you will have to choose a set of items to get the same effects, which really is just going to enable new players to make that many more mistakes.

I really liked the Sightstone.

Positive points:
- Supports will be able to save more gold to buy items
- Greater map vision
- Counter warding will be more important now, making the game more dynamic

For those who are saying that junglers won't be able to gank, here's the solution:

Counter Warding

The day you can counterward without actually being seen by the ward, sure.

Actually it was incredibly weak. In some games it would be known as a trap item, only catches newer players.

TBH there was no reason to remove ionic spark, it was better than wits end in teamfights because the proc would do overall more damage, me and my friends once played a teamcomp where we all built it and we won. More than only a couple champions. Riot shouldn't tease us with neat items only to remove them a couple months later. Fix it and keep it in.

First 2 completely useless so we are forced to deal with useless avarice blade that builds into a worthless ghostblade end game where the rest of the junglers can have at least 2 out of 3 GP/10 and get unfair advantages over their enemy junglers in gold income.

For example compare Lee Sin to Jax jungling. Lee Sin can only benefit from avarice blade while Jax can build all 3 of them. Where is the balance in that ?

How will you address this issue ?

I am actually fairly disappointed by this..

MBR vs Blade of the ruin king

MBR is a better item, it costs 1k more gold but is far, far better. I have no idea who would buy blade of the ruined king.

If people think 4% of their max health is bad, 4% of their current health is much much worse.

With no defensive stats on BotRK why would any bruiser buy it, and with only 40 AD on it, why would an ADC buy it.

Heck with 40 AD and 40 AS MBR would be much better for an ADC.
