that allows them to get armor and attack damage without having to go into something else (atmas, having to get hp.)

of course, you don't have to get hp, but... atmas just doens't work as well if you don't have a large amount of hp

Atma's works off of total health. Your argument is invalid.

You not only get damage you get CRIT. What makes an AD carry is crit, so you're getting AR,damage,crit. What more do you want? You can always go entropy, for damage and wow it gives Hp so more synergy with Atmas!

Dude, most of the worthwhile ranged AD can kite pretty well (Vayne, Ez, etc), its already a big enough advantage. Imagine not being able to catch them effectively, then once you do, they can soak up damage like a melee.

Then either build one pure armor item (FH, Thornmail) if you really need it or don't buy any armor, lots of ranged AD carries have survivability in their kit, they don't need to itemize for it.

If you're getting attacked a lot, then consider your map awareness and engagement tactics. If you're Ezreal or Vayne, always remain distant from your teammates and keep yourself hidden where the enemy doesn't expect you, and come into skirmishes with them with them thinking "Where the heck did he come from!?".

AD ranged is all about positioning and strategy. If you play skillfully, your use of your built-in survivability + positioning should take care of you enough that you don't need to build armor. It only gets difficult for you if they have twitch/shaco/eve.

You know, if you desparately want armour for a low cost, you can always just buy a chain vest...

Most people don't realize that life steal is a form of armor - the bottom line is they both increase your survivabilty while in the middle of a battle. Therefore I'd say Bilgewater Cutlass, Executioner's Calling, and the Sanguine Blade are all valid attack centric items that boost your survivabilty. If you're going IE / PD but are having trouble because you run dangerously low than try switching to a Sanguine Blade / PD instead.

As for the Atama's Impaler, for 825g it would give 32 damage to Anivia at level 18, who has the lowest health at level 18 in the game according to http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Health (http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Health). Considering a Pickaxe costs 975 and gives you 25 damage I'd say that's a pretty good deal.

We still lack a smaller item similar to Wriggle's. There's just Ninja Tabi.

lifesteal is actually more like health than armor
