The old problem with Hexdrinker is still there. One needs that exact point of damage that brings one from 30% to below to be magic damage. In teamfights, it makes it highly unreliable. This is not good considering how large a portion of the item budget the shield takes up.


The sheer randomness about whether one gets that 400 shield or not in a teamfight is frustrating and the item shouldn't be like that. A frustrating mechanic is not a fun mechanic, and thus should not be in the game.

There are possible alternatives, like making what damage brought one to below 30% irrelevant.
One could adjust the 400 value downwards if necessary. There are also other options. For example: making it a 280 base shield against magical damage, 400 if the damage that brought oneself below 30% was magical damage.

I hope it is recognized that the degree to which it is unreliable late game is anti-fun and that something is done about it.

Was kind of scared when I read the that the hexdrinker was getting changed. As I use it for a few of my AD bruisers such as Riven/Fiora/Yi and a few others if they have a lux/karthus/teemo. It protects me quite well against their ults, though with the new upgrade, I see it it as a grand tool for my character without evenhaving those champs on the other team.

No one even gets "those" items to begin with though. Feels like such a waste.
