Why didn't they make a prospectors item to replace dorans sheild? I think this would really help balance gameplay especially with champs that need early defence and health regen.

Doran's Items are disabled for dominion,
same with Bloodthirster / Madreds Bloodrazer and other items like that. because Sanguine Blade is in replace of Bloodthirster, Kataes Blade (or something) is in replace of Madreds Bloodrazer....

That's a really good question...but maybe they just thought they weren't needed? Or maybe even OP? Maybe they thought cheap early game defense would slow the game down with too many defending...I don't know.

There has to be a reason, it feels like they omitted a Crystal Scar version of Shield on purpose.

Yeah its still bugs me though, i hate seeing health gem and phage as a starting item for many champs :[ I want to play dominion more but I'm bugged by the total offensive approach by riot, the only new defensive item i saw was odins veil and I would've loved to see that on SR. Also I'm not QQing I just play support and tank/offtank characters alot and dorans sheild was the starting item on most of those champs.

Maybe a better question is why isn't there a dominion specific tank items?!

Hmm my first or second game with Singed I had normally buy Doran's shield in SR but it said "UNAVAILABLE" to me... idk if that was a small minor bug on my part or what. but I was like wth? Because then I saw the other dorans items were unavailable too.

Maybe cause they want this mode to be fast, with a lot of kill / deaths, dynamic, thats why armor pen is boosted as well as health regen is nerfed. They don't want survivality they want bloodbaths.
