I'll use the proper forum section for an item suggestion which probably means it won't see much discussion, but let's have a go anyway.


So yeah, Rammus get's bonus AD from stacking armor, and it's actually a pretty neat trait.

So I ask, why not let other tanks itemize for something like this?

Say, give them an Item which builds up their AD based on the resistances they got, rather than pidgeonholing them into HP with an Atma, which isn't always as effective?

Because it will leave only the option of building that, or worse, Atma + That + Defenses whit Hp. Unbeateable and super damaging.
Please no.

Stat conversions on items are to be avoided. They have only been added in limited quantities in the few places where they seemed like a good idea: Manamune, Archangel's, and Atma's Impaler.

The health-scaling on Atma's Impaler was an attempt to make a defense+offense item that would provide roughly equal benefit to bruisers and carries: Carries benefit more from the ad because they have more attack speed and crit to scale it, and bruisers would make up for some of this difference by getting more ad because they have more health. The health-stacking that temporarily became a problem with Atmog's build and ad-ratio champions was never intended. That was merely a side-effect of the health ratio being too high, and the health ratio was not enough of a problem to look at until ad ratio champions were released who benefitted more from the ad without the need for scalars. The health ratio issue had very little impact before the spike in ad-ratio champions because building the scalars (attack speed and crit) necessary to utilize that attack damage already limited the health-stacking+defenses, and if the player did not build those scalars the ad was hardly a benefit.
