The same way we have a tab for the various summoner spells, it'd be nice to have a database where we can go through the various items and building options. One of the most daunting things as a player, if the pool of champions wasn't enough, is the various items. It'd be nice to have a place where we can just read up on items without having to start a custom game or spend extra at the fountain in-game. We have the ability to plan out runes, masteries, and summoners in the lobby, so I think items would be useful as well.

Thoughts?

Yup, would love to have this happen. I've been pushing for item browsing in pvp.net for a while, I think it's a super important piece of information for players to have outside the game. We're not actively working on it right now, but it's pretty high on my personal priority list.

So is that above or below the eve stealth rework? i'm betting its above it.

edit: i know you don't have much to do with eve rework but still.

or even load a custom build option instead of going threw the damage/life steal etc. tab's have it almost like the rune page/mastery page. but it will be there so u can just click and build as you want instead of the recommonded. of couse keep the recommonded there just incase some one F's up. so ppl can build faster with out cycling threw every thing. just a thought thats all

Not an official tool by any means, but I love to play around with theorycrafting using Leaguecraft's Builder tool.

Go here: http://leaguecraft.com/champions

And click on the "Builder" button below the character. You can plan out masteries, runes, and items, and see what that gives your character as a result.

Also, if you're comfortable messing w/ some more buried files, you can actually create customized recommended items. There's a Riot-developed API hook for it. Info here:

Just throwing out these tools for those who didn't know. Not perfect, but it's something!

Summoner tab doesn't show everything, example: spell cooldowns.
Just use the wiki: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Item
