Goddess tear items are never a good build

With very few exceptions (ryze urgot maybe corki)

It takes a long time to build up and it doesnt give as much survability or damage as other items

If you are having mana problems these are better solutions

-clarity (only for accounts below level that dont have tier 3 runes)

-tier 3 flat mana regen glyphs or seals. This gives your mana at level 1

-single or double doran ring: gives mana, survability, damage, and is very gold efficient

I find it VERY good on Karma. I play her as mid AP not as a support. I take mana sapphire+2HP pots at level 1. I do nothing but farm CS till I can go back and finish tear, get T1 boots, two wards and how ever many HP pots I feel I need. I take flash+Teleport and do NOTHING but farm CS, haven't met a mid that can stop me from doing so. I always blow away everyone else in CS.

Yorick, Urgot, Ryze, Karthus

Those are really all the ones that you want to build tear on.

Probably worth it on Ezreal too.

I build it all the time on Sona. With some CDR, you can basically perma-buff your team. I think I'm a minority on that though.

It's pretty much a core item on Urgot.

Karma doesn't have the volume of spell casts to farm it effectively, and doesn't have the net benefits (IE: Karthus's toggle, Blitz's passive, ect) to justify it, so you're literally left with a lot of mana.

Since you're going mid you should be getting blue, and since you're playing Karma you should be focusing on AP early game.

This is just a matter of efficiency.

I guess Ez could use it, but that really lags his damage even if he goes Manamune...

Tear of the Goddess and its upgrades are very niche items, good on a small selection of champions.

But then people with bad mana management build it on Brand and Ziggs =I
