Oh (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2246955&highlight=magic+thornmail) look (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2267009&highlight=magic+thornmail)! This (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2291560&highlight=magic+thornmail) thread (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2298225&highlight=magic+thornmail) again (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2113108&highlight=magic+thornmail)!

The really sad thing? Only one of those was on the second page of the search results >.>

The answer is still and will always be No. Spell Vamp and Lifesteal function on completely different levels; while Thornmail is needed to be a check to lifesteal, Spell Vamp does not need a true counter item.

Why does every noob seem to think this is a great idea and make a badly-written thread, then proceed to get downvoted to hell... AP thornmail=no.

Like who even builds Thornmail anyway besides Rammus...

Except not even Rammus, as he gets more out of FH or RO =P

Anyway, it has a niche... Such as when AD Sion is eating everyone's face.

When you're specifically playing Rammus as an anti-carry instead of primary tank, you build Thornmail.

Pretty much any other circumstance, you build health instead.

Oops, the point of AD Sion is healing him and his team with absurd lifesteal through his ultimate. >>> still you want FH/RO more.

Ok, I'll spell this out for you because no one who posts this seems to get it, carry damage is the highest in the game, and its sustainted. Having an item so that you can watch a viegar one shot himself is fun for you but then NO ONE will ever play a mage again, and it becomes a tanky DPS free for all. Personally i don't think void staff shreds enough MR considering most mages are based around high burst and low sustain.

Magis Shouldn't be punished for doing the ONE thing they do Cast Spells. AD Carries and Bruisers can do plenty of damage through their abilities asell, which Thornmail doesn't punish.

I build it on Shen. Add in Sunfire cape and taunt 2-3 of their team with the rest of your own team hitting them, and they melt.

there's a reason auto attacks are constant spells aren't, there's also a force of nature which is similar except it doesn't rebound and instead gives u increased regeneration
