So, i recently found out that getting both would be pointless, so i must ask, which one is better for a ranged carry like ashe or twitch when aspd runes are available.

IMO, Last Whisper is usually better for armor stacking tanks, while black cleaver is a nice "icing on the cake" type item that I can normally get by without buying.

As a side note I generally don't put Ashe with attack speed runes because most of the time she is chasing and will rarely be able to fire arrow after arrow.

Last Whisper > Black Cleaver
Penetration > On-hit Reduction

While it doesn't have as much AD as the cleaver, whisper also gives enough ASpeed to hold you over all game. Also, if you're gunna spend money on a Cleaver, why not just get an IE or BT instead?

Shouldn't Last Whisper be bought after IE and BT too anyways?

problem with blackcleaver is that you have to keep attacking or make X attacks to make it work ( armor reduction )

last whisper will penetrate armor right away on your first hit

last whisper is the winer
