Don't go in first if you can't handle a beating. Someone will have popped that banshees for fiddles in a teamfight anyway (he can do it with silence himself if he wants to).

No its better to have banshees, cause it gives 375hp, 375mana, + 50MR. and blocks 1 attack every 45 seconds.

Over just +56 MR and one spell removed from you every 90 seconds.

Oh yeah totally even items to compare. But since banshee not here.
We have
Odyn's Veil
+350 Health +350 Mana +50 Magic Resist
UNIQUE Passive: Reduces and stores 10% of the magic damage dealt to your champion.
UNIQUE Active: Deals 200 + (stored magic) [max: 400] magic damage to nearby enemy units. 90 second cooldown.

Which is garbage as far as it's "passive" / active. Half the time. The damage would better come from having a gunblade, as you would get slow with the attack.

So hmm take 56MR for a total of 1 slot wasted, or get life and mana and 50MR, but as you point out get feared, taunted, etc to death, so your forced to hold a "crappier" item cause they don't want banshee's making global ults useless.

Have any of you played Dominion? what team fight. Its 2v1, 2vs2, maybe if your lucky 3v2, or or I hvae seen it 3v3 before.

Usually its 2vs2. And having a fear / taunt / malz ult on you for 2-4 seconds, while the jax, akali, etc pound on you. then making it if it was a 2vs2 a 2vs1 where he fears again.

Yes banshee's is easily popped but it still has to be popped which means you have voided off some usually large burst attack from someone. Cause the OP champions in DM tend to have abilities that hit in high amounts.

Also banshee blocks any ability attack that isn't aoe, every 45 seconds, so your going to get 2 blocks per quicksilver's one use and it is only good on duration attacks.

I get the idea on why they removed it though. everyone would carry it cause its such a great item to have to counter your typical OP champions. And well everyone would always have it plain and simple.

So i think they just need to mix quicksilver and banshee.

If Banshee's was allowed in Dominion, it would probably be a requirement since you could avoid getting hit by a spell, especially a global ult.

Banshee's was banned in Dominion to allow capture interrupts. In other words, a Champ's Ult like Ashe's big, blue arrow or Lux's beam of light *should* indeed interrupt a capture. I'm guessing Riot was making a decent effort towards eliminating "everyone must have this item" items.

How would Banshee's even protect you against Fiddle in your example? He cawcaws over a while, hit's you with Dark Wind to eat the Banshee's buff, then hit your with Fear. You would be just as screwed then as you would be otherwise.

Get MR, use QSS, use Cleanse. You have options.

Odyn's Veil is pretty awesome actually. It ends up being the best straight up survivability item against magic damage since the 10% magic damage reduction isn't affected by magic pen.

If a Fid is rocking you in DM, then you need some map awareness.
