Welcome to myth busters!
I decided to take up your challenge to see whats, whats when it comes to base statistics. Not counting passive/active abilities from the items (Lich Bane in particular). Lets leave out all passive and active abilities from the mix. My build only has 5 items to your um 7 (I removed tear altogether maybe you ment to turn into Archangels). I decided to be fair to my 5 item build and remove 1 of your items to compare it to my build. I removed your Rod of Ages because I'm not sure in what dimension you can max 2 Rod of Ages and get a Zhonya's ring (the match would have to run well over an hour consistently for the build to make sense).

The calculations speak for themselves.I accept your whole hearted apology Nemesis21.

Nemesis21


AP
Void 70
Rod of Ages 80
Rod of Ages 80
Archangel 45+101

Total AP=496 x 1.25= 620

Health
Rod of Ages 650
Rod of Ages 650
Total Health=1300+1520= 2820

Mana
Rod of Ages 725
Rod of Ages 725

Total Mana= 2850+1191(ani's base mana at 18)= 4041

Dragonk, I agree that a second RoA as Nemesis21 suggested is probably unrealistic, given that games usually don't last so long that you get so many legendary tier items. While you did your job in carrying out the analysis between yours and Nemesis21's build, there are a few mistakes in your considerations and assumptions, which I think puts your results in the "dubious" category.

Mistake 1: You failed to take into account the benefits of the passives. Yes, you did say in your assumptions that you were going to leave them out, but it's not enough. You usually take it all the way, what happened man? Reality isn't going to be nice to your findings, and LoL, a game full of competitive people, will be no exception. Situations aside, Lich Bane encourages a more skirmish-type behavior, and while it may do more overall damage compared to Nemesis21's Void Staff, there's no denying the extra complexity and danger involved in utilizing such an item. The extra MS is nice, but when comparing the synergy of items to Anivia's role, one could argue that it's not her place to be so close to the front line of a team. Void Staff on the other hand amplifies her spellcaster capabilities, and so there would almost be no objection to getting it in theory, other than the fact that Lich Bane gives mana, and the value given the gaming situation.

Mistake 2: You didn't compare the costs of the items. I didn't do the calculations myself, but since you only compared AP and mana, your build isn't cost-effective compared to Nemesis21's. Lich Bane is easily 1k gold more expensive than Void Staff.

Mistake 3: You forgot to factor in Lich Bane's mana addition.

I hope you do much better next time you host an episode of Mythbusters, because the execution of your analysis, let alone your style, was rather lacking and misguided.

Sincerely,

1MythRaverDude


Watch out for them fanboys. Also, I still wouldn't recommend your guide to a tryhard.
