Let's see http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Atma's_Impaler

Atma used to be 1.5%, and it was considered overpowered then nerfed to 1.5% again.
It's an item built on a slippery top; once you move it, it snowballs.

As for the crit question, it combos well with Triforce and Youmuu's.

Since the frozen fist and new cleaver came out these items are somewhat overlooked, but I expect to see more of them once the hype over the new items dies down a bit (The Cleaver is still a bit strong for it's versatility and the TF is too costly considering you can just get an AoE version for 1K less, but I'm hoping these issues will be addressed before too long)

You want ad? You only got 45 ad on your champ with warmogs? k you must be yi but we'll go with it. You still get the armor. I hear armor is good when you have a lot of health. You still get the crit. I hear crit is good when you wanted ad to begin with.

The item might not be custom tailored to your champ but the item is still solid and at 2% it was the best item in the game.
The main issue is crit chance is useless for bruisers or tanks in season3. Even in season 2, it shined when it has 2% hp ratio converted to AD, but not for its crit chance.

I Buy it after warmogs and sunfire when I need a little bit more armor but don't need to stack anymore HP. It makes a good round up item if you pair it with another offensive item like BC, LW, BT; it doesn't really matter.

If you go vs double bruiser I would actually suggest it so you hit the point where your damage and tankiness beats their damage. At 3.4k hp you still get around 50 AD.

I'd be interested to see how it works on a bruiser Rengar. He has enough attack speed to utilize crit chance, and of course the AD and armor work well on him.

People saying it's "extremely efficient" are morons.

Atma's is one of the most gold inefficient items in the game.

I feel the only person who can actually use all its stats is Garen, but he's better off with SotD and Infinity Edge for his crit chance needs.

Imagine you're a mana based bruiser and you have about 2.5k to spend.
Will you buy Atma's imapler or Glacial shroud plus Sheen or Warden?
Glacial shroud's CDR is too good unless you're Garen.
