Until you get ult, good players aren't likely to die vs. Urgot, in my experience. I dunno, I prefer to spam Qs on the minions to start, then dive them when I get my manamune + ult. I also go for lots of CDR right after manamune, so I spam the **** out of all my skills.

That's also true, and why I still open Tear sometimes. I do tend to second guess myself; if I open Prospector's + Boots and don't get a kill early, I wonder if I should have opened Tear. If I open Tear and hold my own, I wonder if I should have opened Prospector's + Boots.

But both are honestly acceptable.

The kicker in my mind is that there isn't an immediate downside to opening Prospector's. At worst you just won't kill them because of opening with it. If you open Tear, there's a real chance an aggressive opponent will pick a fight and force you out of lane. You're just taking on a pretty big downside risk to avoid some much smaller downside risks.

Yet I still open Tear when I think I can get away with it. I don't get punished for it often so I guess it's just picking your spots well.

the only person who should get tear is ryze because his damage is based of mana.

More mana equals more spells. All mana user's damage is based off mana. I'm not saying that everyone shoud get tear, but any champ that spams spells and has mana issues will probably benefit. Also any champ that benefits from an extremely high mana pool(blitz and ryze).
