Most tanks don't have the pure attack damage to benefit from lifesteal.

I think your question betrays a simplistic worldview in which such things as absolutes exist.
But that's just me.

I get lifesteal on heros that:

1 are not casters
2 hit fast and/or hard
3 need the survivability

examples; Warwick, Tryndamere, Kassadin and to a lesser extent Teemo

Other than those I tend to stay away from the lifesteal because there are other, better options

*nods* In my experience lifesteal is not a trait that functions well independantly of other factors. It is best used as a supplement to stacking either high damage or attack speed: since the amount you heal is based on the damage you inflict with (mostly) your auto-attacks, lifesteal requires autoattacks that either hit hard or hit often for you to see much benefit.

But I'm not telling you anything you don't already know.

Gangplank/Sivir could put Stark's to good use. Incidentally, Malady works great on them too. Yi doesn't really care for anything that isn't Bloodthirster, but Starks wouldn't be too bad for him either I guess.

I've seen plenty of Sion gunning for naked Thirster, seems to complement his skills well.

I was wondering about lifesteal too. it is only direct damage like from autoattacks? Does it not proc on DoTs or drains? I believed it would proc from a spell too, like Parrrley

Very welcome Bender

DryPenguin, DoTs and Drains, no it does not work. Parrrley im not too sure about. Good question. Could be answered by a Pirate fan or the master of 'will this work with this', Guinsoo himself

I can test it. I just haven't used it personally on Gangplank yet. I find that by the time I get my core build done the game is over
