You're an AD carry and your enemy is stacking armor...

Oh, I don't believe in doing the whole tanky thing. Maybe if you have a caster problem so you can survive the burst, get a wit's end or maybe even a hexdrinker...but that's about it. If it doesn't add to your damage you should be careful how you fit it in. If you're not able to get them down very much at all, do you think an extra half second or full second is going to help you get them down to 0hp? The champs you're talking about are already designed to scale well with tanky items and tanky dps items, so you trying to go the same route isn't going to help.

Like I stated, I think it would be better to give offensive items that maybe have a bit of defensive utility, but I'd mainly stick with items that provide you with atk dmg, crit, atk spd, life steal. All the goodies you normally want depending on what you prioritize on your chosen champion. So, just be careful and play it be ear. Don't rush to a judgement right away based on the team you're dealing with. Start out like normal and wait to see what the enemy is capable of and building. Make sure you can adjust yourself and familiarize yourself with a variety of items so you eventually just know what to build(or at least what gives you a fighting chance). Takes practice, just use your brain on the field of battle

All-Purpose Guide to Range ADs:

1. Boots, Prospect & 2 Pots
2. Upgrade Boots
3. IE or Sanguine
3a. Buy Vamp Scep if IE
4. Zeal
5. Last Whisper for Armor Stacking
6. Phantom Dancer / QSS for MR/stuns
7. Build Sanguine if IE or IE if Sanguine

If you die and your team loses the fight, you were out of position.

Depends. If there is a thornmail get a little bit of MR, then get something like Last Whisper or some straight up Armor pen points.

Wits ends + LW to be pretty good for AD carries against thornmail.
Honestly, thornmail is a pretty bad counter for AD carries, the only item that you get out of your way to get would be the ones that provide MR and even then MR is useful for more than just countering the thornmail, then there are items like randuins... now thats a hard counter.

Fit in Sanguine/LW/Odens Veil in your build.

Perfect combo of armor pen and lifesteal+MR+hp to counter thornmail.

Edit; refer to Carnival's post too.
