No, they really don't, hell even the support role isn't set in stone, A lot of characters can support well that don't even qualify as support (Annie) you just have to build different items (For instance support Annie goes Kris>DFG>Wota/Abyssal for gold per 10 and auras instead of a 30 minute Rabadon).

That being said certain types of Items are needed for each role.

Carrys need AD
Mages need AP
Tanks need Resistances
Supports need gold/10

Support Annie.
Revery, Soulshroud, DFG, Aegis, Abysal, Zhonyas/WoTa Depending.

tanky, 40% CDR, extra nuke that scales independent of AP, ****s Auras.
Always Stun never die.


The difference is, you see the effect of the different choices you buy very obviously on other champions. If I buy Abyssal Scepter before Rabadon's Deathcap (or vice-versa) on an AP champion, the effect is very noticeable. If I buy Aegis before a Soul Shroud (or vice-versa), the difference is barely noticeable.
