catalyst the protector = 450 gold, total cost = 1325
400 health, 325 mana
Ruby crystal = 475 gold
Sapphire Crystal = 400 gold
Sapphire crystal should be a bit more expensive, i'd say 40 gold more. (room for health potion)
Catalyst the protector should be 500 gold, so the total cost goes up by 90 gold.
Banshee's Veil might be more balanced with 25 less hp, closer to innervating locket.
Catalyst is a very good item, and I get it fairly often, and I really don't think it's too cheap. Building a veil / rod of the ages seems to take long enough as it is...
Catalyst feels really cheap if you get first blood before 5 minutes. Otherwise it feels like it comes in after you'd get most of the benefit anyway.
Btw, it should refill 400/325 HP/mana on level up instead of 425/325, since it provides a 400/325 bonus, since the HP nerf.
SHHH SHHHH SHH STOP NO DON'T SAY THAT SHH
Catalyst is like a best kept secret.
